Gently pull lens barrel out to full extension. You will hear a click. Then turn camera off and on again. Done.
Hope that helps.........

    The camera has a 3 year warranty, the error wont go away because you need to do the same steps everytime you restart the camera , the Zoom assembly is free so if you want have it fix from Fuji.

Your lens motor is either burnt out or stuck.

Have you tried spraying a can of compressed air into the lens assembly? All it takes is small piece of debris like a grain of sand to jam up the assembly.

Hope this helps

How can I rectify the "zoom error" message on screen - also the lens will not retract either


Hello

Unfortunately a "zoom error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure (apparently your lens is damaged, since it will not retract) and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

Hi, my zoom is stuck out and won't retract.


Your lens motor is most likely burnt out. The only way to continue taking pictures is push the lens in manually, You may have problems with the focus after doing this, so just turn the lens manually until you are zoomed in properly. If you have a warranty now is the time to use it.

Zoom error


The lens got out of track. Try to have them back by forcing gently the lens in ou out with your fingers. If they are bent, force them straight. Hope it helps.

If the camera was on when it was dropped you probably jamed the lense coil. The lense coil is what helps the camera smoothly pull in the lense and back out. Now, just to specify, what exactly are you having a problem with? Will the actual lense not go back into the camera when you turn it off; or can you not get your camera off zoom?
Let me know~

Lens not retracting


if the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs.

Error message now showing


Does the lens extend and retract as normal?
If so then the internal drive gear for the zoom / focus has been damaged and will need to be repaired/ replaced.
If the whole lens will not move or is stuck then it needs to be removed, stripped and re-assembled.

Fuji finepix A600 camera - Zoom error


I had the same problem turn up after a few weeks. When I used the zoom button, the lens pushed out again and the camera worked normally for that time. I had to go through that procedure every time I turned the camera on.
I then sent it back on warranty and they replaced the lens assembly as well as the mode dial knob etc.
This camera has a 3 year warranty.
good luck...

There is a possible solution but try at your own risk:

Give the camera a few bumps to help it release the lens. Bump into a soft surface, like your hand or a towel.

Zoom lens won't retract


Usually down to the lens block assy being faulty.Is the lens retracting and opening properly?.It usually turns out to be worn gears in the lens drive assy or the result of a fall.Either way will be expensive repair!My advise is check and see whether camera is covered by insurance for accidental knocks.,
