Question about Fuji FinePix Z2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a fujifilm and took it on holiday with me in july this year, half way through the week an error came up saying 'zoom error' and the zoom lens goes straight back in after it comes out! this meant that i couldnt take any pictures. After a while it started working again and the error seemed to have disappeared! however this error has returned and it has been like this for nearly a week now and won't fix, is there a cheap and eays way to get it fixed as i dont have a lot of money and the camera does not belong to me. Thanks

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

Fujifilm finepix J32 Zoom error


Had exactly the same problem with my fujifilm j32, after reading a few things on the net and definitely couldn't be bothered to waste money and time sending off a camera that cost a few quid I took matters into my own hands!
I turned the camera on and quickly grabbed the lens to stop it retracting again, once it was held out I gave it a good 'wiggle' moving it in all directions fairly firmly!
I then pressed the on/off button again to switch it off and then turned it back on and low and behold it turned on and worked perfectly after!
Hope this helps others cause it could save you a lot of time and money!

Zoom error


The lens got out of track. Try to have them back by forcing gently the lens in ou out with your fingers. If they are bent, force them straight. Hope it helps.

If the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs. Problem may caused by lens zooming gears stuck.
