This sounds like your automatic lens cover on the front of your lens is sticking. If this happens, take a look at the front opening of your lens to confirm this (it's very obvious). If so, try the simple fixes listed here (don't open the front if you can avoid it):

Getting an zoom error on my fuji film finepix z90, what can i do?


Lens errors (zoom errors on Fuji's) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

The lense is stuck at full zoom and the camera has an error message whenever it turns on to turn the camera off and on again. I cannot take pictures or control the zoom.

Have you tried to reset to original settings in the setup window. I would try that maybe..
If that doesn't work then its probably an issue with your sensor unit which is apart of your lens.

I was taking pictures and i dropped my camera and


The lens unit needs to be serviced, possibly marginal repair, so if you look at the lens and it seems to be crooked, you could try GENTLY straightening it , but this may make it WORSE! Do not push it in, try to pull out the side that is already pushed in, if you get what I mean.
Otherwise take it to a repairer.

We just bought d90 nikon camera and we found a small half-round shadow at the bottom of the pictures taken when we dont use the zoom lens, how do we correct this?


Are these pictures taken using the built-in flash and with the hood on the lens? If so, you're seeing the shadow of the lens hood.

Remove the lens hood when using the built-in flash.

When i take pictures, sometimes they come out with lines all over them.


shutter problem. put camera into full optical zoom, turn it to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. In full zoom the internal lens is right up to the outer lens so, even on a small lens such as this, when you press the picture button you should see the shutter close across fully. If it does not you will get either an over exposed or complete white out picture. Or lines across your pictures.
The shutter needs to be cleaned. There is grease in the camera for the moving parts and is probable that this is the cause for the error.
I have found this to be the case for fuji's E900, E550, F40fd, F470, F460, and a few samsung's as well.

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera


maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.
