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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Fujifilm finepix j38 series reads zoom error and wont take a pic.


If you have some skills, you can open the camera and cline your zoom lens with toothbrush and compressed air. Try to separate zoom lens from the electric motor. usually is 2 or 3 screws. You will see a lot of sand inside the camera and lens. And next time when you will go to the beach, you will take more care about your camera.
Solution 2, and more easy is to buy another zoom lens from ebay.Or another camera same model with broken LCD or other technical problem than zoom lens.

Zoom error


It sounds as though your lens is sticking while trying to extend. Check the lens to see if it binds. Also look at the retracted lens and see if the center portion is properly centered or is cocked to one side and out of alignment.
Once your camera is working properly, as you say it does at times, hold the camera with the lens pointed downward and run the zoom in and out several times to see if there is dirt caught between the lens cylinders. Sometimes that will work any debris out.

Zoom pictures lower than what see in viewfinder


That's normal...it's called parallax error because the view finder is not in the same plane as the lens. Why don't you use the LCD screen to compose your shots?

How can i change the size of image on the lcd screen


Press the Zoom-in button (the one with the magnifiying glass) to zoom in. Press the Zoom-out button (the one with what looks like a part of a checkerboard) to zoom out.

Zooming in lets you look at a portion of an image, zooming out reverses it.

Zooming out also lets you look at thumbnails and navigate around them to select the picture you want. Then you can zoom in to fill the screen with that picture.

If you're looking at a picture full-screen, you can also press up/down on the multiselector to change your view of the picture.

Fuji FinePix S700 Problem


Try to put it on super macro and see if this will reset the zoom function.
Also try to switch between the settings that allow the digital zoom, as compaired to those settings that only allow optical zoom.
If these do not work, you may have a lens that has been dropped, or is stuck, and may need to be serviced. I have the S700, and have never seen this error before> good luck.

Your problem initially sounded like a simple lens error (and was). However you now seem to have alsao developed a possible image sensor issue as well. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to set up a repair of the camera.

Hope this helps.
