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!

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:-

Lens become stuck


Do you know what caused the lens to get stuck? Did someone drop it, or was the camera a long time not used?
Most of the time this is a mechanical problem. At least is you still can switch the camera on and get into the menus and when you still can view pictures taken.
In rare occasions, the blockage can be released with a little shock to the camera. Never use force on a camera, or tick something against a camera. you could slap your hand, holding the camera, but not hard. But when the blockage is caused by a broken gear, noting will help. The camera should go to a repair store.
Before you do, be sure the battery is fully charged. An old battery, could cause trouble too. More often than you can think of.

Fuji FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera I have


Hello :

Lens error is the most common failure in digital cameras . it seems The internal coupling of the zoom lens is somewhat fragile, and a slight tap at the wrong time can mess up the system . or it could have been something as small as a bump while it was being carried in your pocket or even the sand or something like it can cause this problem . Anyway the problem is that you'll have to pay for repairs on it since technically it's not a camera error but something that manufacturers say it happened during usage. I recommend you to contact the manufacturer to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky . Some owners seem to have been able to solve the problem with a gentle bump to the side of the camera, or some gentle twisting on the lens itself. I don't necessarily recommend that- or, at least I would call Fuji first and see what they have to say about cost of repairs. Once you do get it fixed, put the camera in Playback mode before you switch it off so that the problem doesn't happen again.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

good luck

Hi I have a fujifilm f470 finepix camera. One


Hi,
Is it just the live view from the lens that you can't see ( totally blank screen), or are the icons visible?
If it still shows the icons but no live view then I suspect the shutter mechanism is stuck over the lens inside the camera.
Have a look at the lens and see if you can see the inner lens? You may have to adjust the zoom to bring the inner lens up to the end of the lens barrel.
If it is stuck then it will require removing and inspecting / cleaning.

Lens adapter needed


Get yourself a step ring, 52mm for you S8000FD, this has a thread on the end and allows filter attachments. I have an S8000FD and have since bought a step up ring, UV filter and Polariser, plus another lens cap which fits on to the end via a pinch mechanism rather than clamping like the one provided by Fuji.

Lens adapter


Hi

I do not believe that it is possible to use a lens adapter with this camera or even filters.

The lens that comes with it has a wide focal range and the camera itseld is sold as a compact.

You may need to look at a fully digital SLR to get this feature
