Question about Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I keep my camera in my purse all time, never once dropped it. The other night, I pulled it out to take a picture and it said zoom error and will not allow me to take a picture. Do I need to buy fresh batteries or does it need to be fixed completely?

It has a motor which pushes the zoom mechanism. You might have some dirt in the lens casing and so it's binding the motor.

You may break it if you play rough with this area, so be careful.

If the camera was on when it was dropped you probably jamed the lense coil. The lense coil is what helps the camera smoothly pull in the lense and back out. Now, just to specify, what exactly are you having a problem with? Will the actual lense not go back into the camera when you turn it off; or can you not get your camera off zoom?
Let me know~

I'm not sure if this will work as I have yet to try this for my self. But according to others who have had this problem pulling lens out while camera is off and then restarting camera works. If this does work please notify. Or just tell me what happens when this is done

Lens unit has to come out to see whether the problem can be sorted out without spares going in. But unfortunately you have to go from the back on this model which means disconnecting and removing all 3 pc boards and the LCD screen and then loosening the lens mounting to slide the lens out from the back. You may have to dismantle the free lens further once it is out to see exactly what the damage is ( if any ).

Kodak C330 [lens error 14]


I have this camera and I have had this exact error...and I'm sure it was caused from being in my purse and turning on and off all the time. All I did to fix it was push the lens a little bit while it was already retracted and it made a slight popping noise like it was going back onto a track and then it worked perfectly ever since then.

That lens error msg means that you need to send it in. There is no resetting that you can do to fix that. Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. Tell them what's going on and that you would like to send it in for repairs. If they ask just lie and tell them you already talked to tech support. LOL

Zoom error


I had the same problem with mine and I tried several suggestions, BUT the only one that has worked is to gently grab the lens, pull it out as far as it will go until fully extended. While keeping it extended turn the lens to the right until you hear a click. Once you hear the click, release the lens and turn the power button on and then back off again. This should take care of the problem. A word of warning. ALWAYS make sure your fingers do not touch the front of the lens when you power on the camera. Even the slightest bit of obstruction seems to make the problem reoccur. Another note. I had tried this several times until I finally heard the click, so please don't give up on it, just keep trying. This will work and it will save you a lot of time and money having it fixed.
