Zoom button I can only press the zoom button a certain amount of times. Maybe like 2 or 3x and then the entire camera shuts off. Anybody experience this before? Any solutions?

Zoom out and it shuts down


Don't think you'll have to send it in for repair. How old is your battery? Keep in mind that it isn't meant to last for more than a year or two, regardless of how often it is used. A camera will automatically shut down if its battery power is getting low. This usually occurs when the camera is doing power intensive actions, such as zooming (it uses a motor). Anyways, Amazon has some generic options for you if your battery may be over-the-hill:

  • images become coarser the more they are digitally zoomed.

IF this fails, your camera is in need of service.

Nikon coolpix 2200 zoom


Based on your description, it certainly sounds like the zoom button is stuck or shorted. If you're comfortable with taking it apart, I'd try getting to the zoom electronics and see if there's any noticeable damage. Whenever I try something like this, I like to see how much damage I could cause first. eBay has sold this item for less than $50 with shipping (just in case you break something). You can also look there for parts cameras -- one listed for $10 with free shipping that might give you what you need.

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

The SMART ZOOM is not working - doesnt either come up in SET UP menu?


I fixed my problem myself. Simply read the top of the camera1.gif where it says TO USE SMART ZOOM SET IMAGE SIZE TO LESS THAN 2.8M
Then go to the very bottom button on your camera (there are three) and press it and reset your image size.Then your zoom will work.
Problem solved.
