The zoom stopped working. does anyone know what to do?


This is the power zoom control?
Could be a burnt out servo motor that does the work.
I think there's no way out but a repair shop.

Zoom gear problem


helow, can you please explain the problem if you meant zooming doesn't work, it can be due to zoom button broken or zoom mechanical problem if you hear any weird sounds when you try to zoom that maybe to broken gears or a dislocation of the gears, you need to take it to a repair center

The autofocus is not working. I tried going to manual focus and this won't work either. Also when I try to zoom out it will only let me go about a qauter of the way then it stops, and won"t zoom out...


Was it recently dropped or bumped in any way? The focus and zoom motors are not activating or limiting. It could be misaligned or slipping gears. Listen for motor running as you press the appropriate function - such as manual focus or zoom. If you hear anything then the motor are running but not adjusting the lens - therefore the gear is loose and/or the motor is slipping. It must be taken apart to repair.

Camera wont zoom it just says turn off


It sounds like you have a damaged zoom servo.. which is odd because you're camera probably extends the lens once it's originally turned on. The motor/servo is kind of expensive to replace and it may be more cost effective to purchase a newer camera. 
To make sure i'm correct. try turning your camera on with your hand over the lens to stop it from protruding. if you get a similar or the same message then it's the motor. If it just beeps then i have no idea what the issue is. Has the camera been dropped recently?

Zoom error


worked on allot of fuji's. first detease, a gear is slipping in the lens retract assembly due to a crack or wear or jam

2nd guest .. zoom errors means its really stuck tight

the gears can be ordered and replaced and one more possibility is that the motor that drives the gear is bad
Also if dropped or zoom lens jammed hard... lens assembly needs total realignment or replacing..

Zooming in.


Your camera jumped out of gear. Open the front metal cover and disassemble all arm working with the main motor gear and try to reposition the red dot on the big gear with the small gear side by side. Presto now your camera is aligned. Place all arms back in order to your new alignment.you got your self a working camera. D: 3403 3404 mean error = some thing is block your lense and stopping the motored gear. For future referance don't drop the camera agian, next time it might be a expensive fix next time around.

ZOOM problem


Most likely there is a problem with servo drive for the lens and camera functions. The fix is to replace the complete processor board including the servo drive electronics. After replacement the board must be tested and calibrated.

Call Sony to see if the camera is worth to have serviced.

Zoom lens noise in videos..


1 1/2 years, months, weeks? a little unclear.

you should not hear the zoom motor operate. you should not hear the result of its operation as elements move along.
you have a worn gear or contamination, or other defect. its probably minor. it happens.

return for service. its a good unit. but i would compare repair cost to replacement of latest comparable unit and then explore an upgrade option.

good luck

Not Zooming


The lens assembly on the Camedia and many other cameras has a special motor to facilitate the zooming. It sounds as if your motor is actually working but it's not engaging the gears to drive the zoom in and out. It could be a fractured gear somewhere in that drive system. I wouldn't recommend pulling one apart. They are a mongrel to put back together the right way. Keep your eyes open on Ebay for your model with a busted LCD or fault not associated with the lens and do a complete lens assembly transplant. Something which is relatively easy to do as long as you take notes of where all the parts and screws go. If you get left with no more than 2 screws when you've finished, you've done well.

Lens error


The lenses are mounted to cylinders and the outside of the front cylinders have pins mounted to them. The pins ride in little tracks that move the front one in and out. The cylinders rorate with a motor and gears. You could have damaged gears or the pins could be off track. Its hard to know without seeing it. There is a guy who does camera repair really cheap and he sells some of the cameras he repairs on e-bay. His name is "darntoothysam" maybe you can search his webpage or the user name on e-bay. Hes really cheap too. I think what he usualy does is just swap out parts. Hes been doing it a while and has a tone of extra stuff to swap around. You could try and fix it then send it to that guy if you cant figure it out. You have to really tearn them down far to get to the lens mechanism. Did you drop it?
