My fuji s7000's lens got stuck with a zoom error. Is it software? Then where do I download it from? Is it hardware? What should be done? Kindly advise.

    On some stage the lens was not moving when switching on. Now it does, but on the display instead of the picture I only see a kind of malfunction lines and instead of proper pictures gives just a white/purple color...
    I believe it is a software problem - any chance of re-install the software from somewhere?

Have same problem fujifinepix6900zoom is solution same

There is 6 small screws

Mine did this and refused to function.
Take the batteries and card out just in case.

I then took out the 6 screws in the lens shroud (3 sets of two - note 1 long one and 1 short one for each set) and removed the shroud cover to one side. The lens barrel is located in the inner shroud and has a very close tolerance. This is the main cause of the problem as an dirt or dust just clogs up the fine tolerance. Try and jiggle the lens shroud slightly and if need beapply a little lens cleaning fluid in the clearance gap. Put batteries back in the camera and try to start the camera. The lens should move as normal. Keep perservering as this will solve the problem. It is only dirt stoping the lens from moving combined with the low power of the motor powering the lens focusing. Take care at all times and be sparing with any lens cleaning fluid.
Best of luck

This can be 2 different problems. First is low battery condition, early models of this camera had power control problems, ie battery can still be drained even though camera is off. If you know your camera has good batteries, you can try this if you feel brave: unscrew the 3 small screws at the base of the lens, this will allow lens shroud to come off. You can then extend the lens manually simply by twisting it. Leave lens fully extended, reassemble lens shroud, then turn on camera. Lens should reset.
If you dont feel confident in doing this yourself, visit a qualified camera shop, they should know all about this problem.

    As a note, if you suspect your camera has the first problem, battery drains even though camera is off, Fuji can do a firmware update which fixes this (for a price). Fuji does not provide firmware for download, bummer.
    If its the second problem and what I suggest fixes it, it will probably happen again. Best I can recommend is to not use it when the battery gets low.

My fuji s7000 zoom has coloured wavey lines when turned on. It goes back to normal intermitantly but at the moment it is constant Ian

Hi Ian.

If the lines are reproduced in the pictures taken, then the image sensor located behind the lens is starting to fail. The problem will usually get progressively worse until you won't be able to shoot regular pictures anymore.

Call Fuji and ask about repair. You can get a quote from a third party here: Repair.

Dropped my Fuji S7000. Am I doomed?

The lens is probably jammed internally. Get an estimate from your local quality camera shop. Sometimes the problem is easy to repair and sometime you'll need a new lens assembly (may cost more than the camera.)

Zoom on fuji f650 stuck

Hi Sandra, Try power reset for your camera. Turn the camera on, and without turning the camera off, open the battery door and take the batteries out. Leave it for a minute or two. This helps camera get reset and helps correct the basic functionality and also zoom error. Hope it helps u otherwise u will have to take it to authorised repair center. Good Luck.

Fuji Finepix S7000 zoom error

If it is 'relatively' new then the best place is the place you bought from- under UK legislation they are responsible to repair or replace. If you are not in the UK then look up the Fuji website for your country- technical help. there is possibility they will direct you to a suitable place.
