Zoom doesn't work anymore

Seems like the same problems others have with zoom. Worked fine before, then all of a sudden when I try to zoom, the camera goes blurry and seems to try and focus, then shuts down. The camera is fairly new.

Zoom did not operate normally,insert the battery again and turn camera on again Camera doesn't operate normally


Hi had this problem with my WB100. Zoom would come out then pop back in and say zoom nit not operate normally, please put new batteries in and try again or contact bla bla. What i did when the zoom popped out is i held onto it and didnt let it retract back and turned it back on. It worked after that so i guess the zoom must of been a little forced in when it was in use last in when turned on it wasnt fully going forward. Worked for me so worth a shot

When you first turn the camera on, grab the lens, pull on it slightly. Turn the camera off and try it again. If it doesn"t work the first time , pull on the lens slightly again. It worked on mine

Camera problem


Hey, i have had the same problem for over a year. My camera also wasn't briefly showing me the pictures i took right after taking the picture like it used to. Last night i found the "Quick View" function was turned off in the menu (up arrow) of the camera, so i turned it back on. Today i tried the zoom function (i haven't tried it in a year) and IT WORKED!! So i think they are linked somehow.

So try going to your menu (up arrow) then scroll down until it goes to the next page of the menu. Select "Quick View" and turn it on. Then your zoom might work. It worked for me, but i don't know if mine is an isolated incedent.

Try it and see.

Power zoom not working


If you dont have rechargable NiMH batteries get these first. Alkalines just dont have the power anymore these newer devices need. If you do have NiMH and yours still having problems try and tap on the lenses as you power it on. As the motors that drive the autofocus and the lens mechanisim wear they draw more current. When this happens the unit draws more power then the batteries can supply and you run into problems. If your camera has a battery pack you may need a new one. They test them new and everything is good on paper but after some use things change.

Zoom Error


We had the same problem with a Fuji FinePix s3000 purchased almost three years ago. Its been a terrific camera and has worked perfectly until just last week when it came up with the "Zoom Error!" problem in the view finder. Since then we have not been able to take a single photo. We did not expose it to any extremes of heat or cold and we did not get it wet, so that would not explain the failure. I very carefully took the camera apart with a jewler's screwdriver and found that it is quite complex inside. To get to the zoom mechanism you have to remove 3 layers of circuit boards. Upon inspecting the zoom mechanism and the minature gear box I could find nothing obviously wrong or broken. Incidentally, don't try what some people suggest for other Fuji cameras about manually pulling the zoom out because you'll probably just strip the gear box. The mechanism is driven by a small motor about the size of a thumb-nail. I guess its possible that this had failed, but since I was not sure of the voltage and I didn't want to disconnect it, I didn't test it to see if it worked. I checked to see if there was any sand or grit in the mechanism but it all looked clean. When I put it back together the zoom mechanism extended and stayed there. The screen still showed "Zoom error". The only solution I can see is to buy a new camera of some sort. It seems that many of the Fuji cameras suffer from this zoom error problem so maybe a change of brand is in order. I think Fuji need to redesign their zoom mechanism.

Zoom card problems


this is also my first posting, and I am having a simular problem with the same camera type. When I place the card in the camera, I get the No Card message. When I use the card in a multicard reader I can view all the images. Since the camera is not detecting a card, i can not attempt to format it
