You have a gear tooth damaged from the drop. This will need to be replaced and is a factory repair only.

Locate your manufacturer's help line from your manual and call them for service.

Some camera shops may be able to do this but it may be easier and more reliable to have the factory replace your lens.

Sorry to say you have to take the camera to a professional repair man, I've attempted to repair these myself but they are a pain to put back together.

    theres clearly a problem in the zoom mechanism that might get solved if you take it apart but it also can be a more complex problem inside, and in which case you would loose your warranty if you still have it.

The toggle button on the zoom is stuck on high magnification. It moves back and forth but will only go from 28 magnification to 34 magnification



This is most likely a defective zoom rocker switch assembly and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Zoom is stuck


Zoom assy may be defective or problem with the lens. Try moving the zoom lever back and forth a few times. Sometimes, something in the lens will get stuck and it just takes a little repetition to get it "unstuck". If this does not work, you will have to have it repaired by an experienced technician. <a href="http://www.austintelstarservices.com">www.austintelstarservices.com</a>
