Zoom error same problem wife friend drop camera,,,,,zoom error

  • bbruen Jul 28, 2008

    I have loved this Finepix Fuji F650 but tonight I dropped onto a carpeted floor and it bounced... zoom error appeared on screen and shutter wouldn't respond... could shift to "view" photos but couldn't get the lens to retract or the camera to turn off. After awhile took battery out and put it back.. no luck... Fidgeted a little with lens as it looked "askance" and suddenly it closed down ....but now when I turn it on I still get a "zoom error" - the lens starts to move out but then retracts.... wondering how expensive a repair... if it's still under warranty through my Mastercard (Bank of America?)
    which might be a two year period?

I'm not sure if this will work as I have yet to try this for my self. But according to others who have had this problem pulling lens out while camera is off and then restarting camera works. If this does work please notify. Or just tell me what happens when this is done

My friend dropped my camera on the road, buttons broke...


You could try taking it apart and cleaning it...or getting a parts camera and putting on a new alluminum chassis and buttons...otherwise you will probably just have to live with it. sorry! Good luck!

I dropped it and it says zoom error


Sounds like the power zoom assembly (motor, gears, etc), has jammed due to the drop. That and possible electronic problems on the controller board or possibly the zoom switch itself suffered damage in the drop also. Try working the zoom switch rapidly , back and forth a few times and see if it frees up. May be a candidate for the repair shop. Sorry for your accident.

'zoom error' on olympus sp-560 uz


I had this problem and managed to fix it. The camera was dropped on a stone floor and the zoom error was present every time it was turned on. A ring or other piece of the lens was bent or damaged, in my non professional opinion. A profesional repair is my advice. However you may try my fix at YOUR OWN RISK.

Switch camera on, when zoom extends, but before it closes down due to zoom error, gently but firmly push lens back in. Drop batteries for camera to reset itself. Repeat, if necessary.

My camera now operates fully and when the lens extends it now no longer makes the slight grinding noise.

Good luck and remember at your own risk.

The lens on my camera won't retract.


The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:
