This happens when the internal zoom lens is off track, usually caused by impact 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.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Auto is stuck on and I can't zoom in or out or review pictures - shutter button stuck also


Being very careful, follow this pictorial disassembly (it's in Estonian, but just follow the pictures). Don't go any further than popping the top off the camera! Look for anything obviously broken off near the vicinity of the shutter button, or looking very different than what's in the pictorial. Keep in mind it's amazing what you can do with a little glue and scrap pieces of plastic:

Also, pay attention to the following post as there is some potential for electrical shock:

Digital Zoom not working


Check the camera's "shooting mode". By default "digital" zoom is NOT on. Instead, according to the manual, you actually have to set it on as part of the camera's shooting mode setting. It's accessed from the main menu (Ok button), choose right arrow, then up and right to choose the "camera" settings. You should see the setting for "digital" and you may see it's OFF, in which case just turn it ON.

There is also a group portrait mode shooting program that can set the optical zoom to WIDE only. This is accessed by hitting the left arrow when you turn the camera on (the circle with the dots). By default it should be "P" for auto program, but if it's set to the icon with 2 people in it, that appears to set wide angle only.

Alas, I checked this last thing on mine and it just seems the lens is stuck (I hear a short whir and that's it, and it is set on "P"). Any suggestions for a mechanical repair?

Zoom is stuck


Just check the DC power supply flowing to the Lens block control. Some times the SMD fuse blows off and power may not reach the lens block motor.

Zoom and shutter not functioning


that is a symptom of being dropped and stuck in a mode.
it requires total dissemble of the camera to fix or replace the lens. your lucky it takes pictures at all. most cameras refuse if the lens is stuck.
