Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

Showing lens control error fuji finefix HS 30 exr


Does it say Lens control error, or does it say Focus error, turn off the camera and turn it on again?
The last can happen when you touch the lens barrel. When the lens does not retract when you shut down the camera, perhaps the battery is exhausted or the barrel got stuck.
Try to recharge the battery and start all over again. If nothing goes, try carefully to pull out the lens a little Less then one millimetre. or gently press it back a little. Be aware the camera is a very delicate piece of equipment, so don't use force, because that could damage the camera definitive.
In the manual, it says you should contact FujiFilm, when the error comes back after you switched off and on. So if nothing helps, that is the last option. Visit a repair shop from Fuji, or bring a visit to your dealer.

Fujifilm s6500fd focus error; what a bummer.


In digital photography, the focus error is especially an error message on Fujifilm FinePix digital cameras, usually caused by dirt in the lens mechanism. To avoid any further damage, the camera electronics totally disables the autofocus system and refuses to take any still image. If out of warranty, the repair costs can easily exceed US $100

Consult your trouble shooting section in your manual. Alternatively check you are having it at the correct minimum distance when taking the pictures as this can cause a problem. For example there are set distances with the macro and super macro options.

Good luck.
