Your camera has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel! Note that you cannot remove your "outer lens". The lens on your camera is an integrated complete unit and is not designed to be dismantled. Even Fuji service centres will only replace the whole lens assembly and will not attempt to replace just a part of it.

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Fuji service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

Lens has been dropped with filter on it, filter shattered and has since been removed. There seems to be some glass fragments inside the lens and some slight marks on the outer surface of the lens. Lens...

Yes it is possibly only a shattered mirror inside which is easily replaced. The scratches on the outer glass can also o fix be dealt with by fitting a new lens to the frame. It wont be a cheap fix and I can only guess that you would be loooking at about 140 pounds it.

But think about claiming on your household insurance as an accidental breakage.

Lens probably got off its track. you need to take the front case apart and pull out the 3 lugs at the base of the outer lens. YOu should ba able to manage to get the outer lens off, dont worry about breakin git as the stuff is made of heavy plastic. If you get it off, see if the inner barrel rotates smoothly. YOu will be actig on a small motor so youll feel a little resistance, but it should be fairly easy to rotate. Lube the helical tracks with heavy white lithium grease and put the outer lens back on making sure to align the tracks, press the lugs back in and reassemble. worth a shot. I did mine and was successful. See my folder on the C8080
