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

SOURCE: Fuji Xp camera says "Zoom

The lens error indicates that the movement is inhibited possibly by sand or grit. It also may be misaligned or an internal component has failed. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck and try removing batteries and memory card. There are a number of things you can try:
- Ensure batteries are fully charged
- Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand or other dirt etc
- Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
- Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 2 minutes and refit

If no luck then we have to try some things that could possibly result in damaging your camera so should only be tried if happy to take that risk...
a. Try thumping the camera into your other hand, by thumping into your hand you are trying to jar the mechanism loose, by using your hand you will hopefully not do it too hard or it will hurt. You may need to do this a dozen or so times in different places to work. I have found the flat of the camera bottom into the flat of your hand best..
b. If the lens is stuck in the out position then remove the batteries and try twisting the lens first one way then the other, do not apply excessive force when doing this or you can break gears, you are trying to reposition not force... Likewise if the lens looks like it is crooked you can try pushing it back into position. This has a higher chance of doing more harm than the thump so please be careful...
c. Dismantle the camera, not for the faint hearted, you need to dismantle the lens assembly into the main body of the camera.

Additionally, here are a few links to some other things to try. With newer cameras I am usually hesitant to suggest these options since they include some more extreme procedures that may cause further damage if not done correctly, but since yours is probably no longer under warranty, they may save you an expensive repair bill. An older Canon camera is used to demonstrate these procedures but, the lens structure of these compact cameras is the same so the examples do apply to this unit. These procedures are effective about 60% of the time. Click on or copy and paste the links into your browser.

* Lens FIX 2

If the "do it yourself" approach doesn't work out for you and you need conventional repair you can get an online estimate at the link and please see the note below: unitedcamera.com/FUJI-FINEPIX-E550 (sample)

Hope helps.

SOURCE: TURNING ON CAMERA ZOOM LENS

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct the problem. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

Your camera is obviously defective. It may have been a return and resold to you. In any case, you should return it immediately....this problem will only get worse.

When turned on camera beeps 3 times & the zoom


Does it take standard disposable batteries or a rechargeable pack?
If the first, check they are inserted correctly as per the illustration in the battery compartment or instruction manual section on inserting batteries.
If the second type, recharge the pack.
If problem continues check Troubleshooting section of manual or online at Samsung's website.

Camera won't switch on, put new batteries in it, took a photo to test, since then it won't switch on.


If you were able to take one shot before the camera packed up it can be that the battery does not have charge on it and so after the first shot it has drained the battery. So check out the charge on it or repeat charging to test once again.
Other wise it can be that the camera control unit is faulty. Try and reset by removing battery for a while and trying once again.

The zoom did not operate normally insert the battery again and turn the camera on. if the camera does not op normally do not put excessive pressure on it and contact the service center i got this error...


The solution is very simple.
you are going to remove the battery (while this screen is on) as the command screen tells.
And your camera should function properly.
I tried it and it worked.

NB; Do not try to close your camera then remove the battery.
Remove it while the camera is still on.

I zoom, shuts off!


Before you arrange a repair try these steps: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.
