Camera Zooms randomly??

My camera after a few sec/mins will begin to zoom in on it's own! I have checked the settings, etc... I can't figure out why all of a sudden it's doing this. It will zoom then pull back to normal ... any ideas?? I have ran a virusscan so i know that's not the case!

I believe you have face tracking enabled. Go into PC Cam Center and go to the Live video section. In here there is a source button, click on it. On the video tab you should see an option for Face Tracking, turn it off and this zooming will stop.

Zooms on its own


This sounds like the unit is going to require service to correct this problem, this will not be a user repair.

Turn on digital zoom


Turn the zoom lever toward the single-tree symbol and hold it until it zooms all the way. Release the lever then turn it toward the single-tree symbol again to engage the digital zoom.

Full details are in the "Zooming in More Closely on Subjects (Digital Zoom)" section beginning on page 60 of the manual.

Canon S3 is will not zoom, buttons will not work, and when viewing the photos, it zooms through them quickly and will not stop!


It sounds as though it may need to be serviced. If you do need to get it serviced, here's the place: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the Canons and nothing else. They do excellent work and they are not much at all in terms of cost. You may want to try emailing them and explain the problem, I'm sure they've seen it before. Good luck with it.

The camera turns on, zooms then goes off


Looks like your zoom button is stuck. Try pressing both the W and T sides several times keeping the camera off. If this doesn't work, you'll have to go for a service center.

Hi, my nikon cool pic 3200, zooms in automatic on


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Zoom has had a knock
Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Camer tuns on and off again


Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. First try removing the batteries and cleaning the camera contacts with a small metal brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. If that doesn't fix the problem, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Sony DSC-P3 Zoom stopped working


i had that same problem. check your image size, the camera cant zoom if the image size is set to 3.1M or 2.8M(3:2)

how to change image size:
turn on camera and leave it in camera mode (picture taking mode)
press the delete/image button
change image size until camera zooms again
VGA gives the biggest zoom range

i hope this helps
it worked on my camera

Camera really messed up!


Have you tried taking out the batteries and leaving it alone for a bit, then loading new batteries? I would try this first before anything. Good Luck.

Blury pictures


it could be a few things like dust on your lens when you took an auto picture and it could have blown off from movement make sure your lens is clean, check your lens settings on the side if it is on the flower its for close up pictures and if its on the trees its for further away pictures so make sure its on the correct setting also pc cams only have digital zoom so if you zoom in it may appear to be blurry because it only zooms in on the picture which is made up of pixels as opposed to an optical lens which zooms in on the actual object so its not as blurry also check your menu settings mabey you messed something up, also remember to keep the camera still when taking pictures they are not that advanced. and if non of that works just use manual.
