This happens du to friction in the movement of the lense assembly. Did you happen to drop it in sand or on hard surface. If the camera if exposed to sand, just the cleaning of the lense assembly,( gears and the barrels) will solve the problem. But, if any damage is there then the complete lense unit needs replacement.

Fujifilm finepix j38 series reads zoom error and wont take a pic.


If you have some skills, you can open the camera and cline your zoom lens with toothbrush and compressed air. Try to separate zoom lens from the electric motor. usually is 2 or 3 screws. You will see a lot of sand inside the camera and lens. And next time when you will go to the beach, you will take more care about your camera.
Solution 2, and more easy is to buy another zoom lens from ebay.Or another camera same model with broken LCD or other technical problem than zoom lens.

I have a zoom error alert on the screen of my fuji j37 digital camera. When i turn the camera on the lens comes out and retracts straight away.


I had this problem for the first time yesterday, on my fifth use of the camera from new. The user manual says to turn it on and off a few times which I did but to no avail. I found advice on a different forum that said to hold your finger over the shutter as you turn it on, so that the lens doesn't have time to retract again. Sort of use your finger nail to hold the shutter up while the lens extends. Tried this and it worked, switched it off and back on agiain and it seems to be going fine now.

IR-300 Olympus


I had what sounds like the same problem. The camera was dropped and the shutter was stuck open. Just kept showing error message.
As I felt I had nothing to lose I began tapping it on a soft book and the shutter started to appear. I then shut it just using the end of my finger. When I then turned the camera on again it opened and shut when turned off. It has worked fine ever since.
Seems a rather poor design.
Hope this helps. Very best regards Peat.

Fujifilm F650 Zoom Error


My camera stays open, will not shut, and when I turn it on the screen says "zoom error" and then turns off again

Zoom error


If you are still under MFG warranty and bought it from Best Buy they will ship it to service most likely, If you have their service plan they will be able to ship it for service... this needs to be serviced by a professional repair place...

Powers up and then shuts off


This should work for the A520. With NEW or freshly recharged batteries, remove the camera's memory card, then turn on the camera. You'll probably see an E30 error. Next turn off the camera. Next insert the memory card, and turn on the camera.

If the above doesn't work, the following blog outlines some other 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:

Frozen lens and shutter


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!

Error-C1


Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).

Lens problem


If you've replaced the batteries with fresh ones, it probably has a broken zoom assembly. It'll have to be replaced by a repair shop.
