I took my camera apart again to show you a picture of it. The yellow arrows show the position where they used to be. The screws are next to the camera on the table.

Greetings, Ron.

Camera has to be repaired. The lens assembly with the focusing, iris setting, zooming is fubar and needs help.

Until resolved you will continue to get that error message.

Zoom error problem on FinePix S 5200


There maybe some dust or dirt in the zoom mechanism.You can try the following which MAY help to resolve this problem:
STEP 1: Switch on the camera while you hold the shutter button and connect it to the AC adapter or to the USB cable at the same time.
STEP 2: Now by default the lens should get properly aligned if not try to twist them slightly by holding down the camera lens with soft hands.
STEP 3: Just push and pull the lens slightly as it extends automatically.
STEP 4: Now when the lens is in the hard surface power on your camera.
STEP 5: Try to hit the camera softly beside the lens which might solve the issue.
You can try to format the memory card completely and then reinsert to your camera which might be the issue at times.

Camara restrarts


Usually a camera only shuts down, when one of its sensors detects a dangerous situation. somewhere a voltage to high, or somewhere it is overheating. Or the lens is not moving free. With some camera's you can force a shut down, by only pressing the lens a little, or just touching the lens while zooming or focusing. Don't try this, because it can damage the lens system. If nothing off this all happened to your camera, perhaps you should ask a service centre. But please check yourself, when you are focusing or zooming, that you don't touch the lens barrel.

WHEN ZOOMING IN WITH MY CAMERA IT TELLS ME TO SHUT OF POWER - VERY FRUSTRATING


Hi,

The Turn off and on again error message displays when there is an internal malfunction or a malfunction with the Lens. The error message normally displays with the issue with the Lens. Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Try power resetting the Camera.
Turn off the Camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Re-insert the battery pack and check if the Lens retracts.
You can also try resetting the Camera back to factory default. To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK. (Home-->Settings-->Main Settings--> Main Settings 1-->Initialize-->OK.)

This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa

Zoom error appears in viewfinder on FinePix S7000 and cannot take photos.. Please help


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Focus error


The zoom and focus operate on screw thread drives. 1 of these has detatched resulting in "ZOOM ERROR" and locked the camera up. Dis-assemble lens and re-attach drive.
