ZOOM ERROR

Had the same problem today with my daughter's Fuji A820 displaying "Zoom Error" at switch on with the lens remaining in the body of the camera and not extending.

I am told this has occured once before while still under warranty and after 2 months at the repair centre.

Before dismantling it I thought I would get a few ideas from this site, and what worked for me was to press the ON button, and at the same time smacking the camera VERY solidly into the palm of my free hand similar to cleaning out a mouth organ. The lens came out immediately and continued to work until I demonstrated to my daughter the corrective action I took ( Gave it another good smacking) where-upon it stopped working again.  Another dose of the same medicine corrected it again,

My daughter indicates she has never dropped the camera but could well have given it a good jolting whilst it was in her handbag which she tends to throw on the front seat of her car when getting into it to drive somewhere. This may be the cause of the malfunction in the first place.

Hope this of some help to anyone grasping at things to try.

Card error 8GB how do I fix it

The A820 works with SD cards, which are limited to 2GB in size. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I bought a tevion 4

Sorry, but the A820 was designed before the newer SDHC format card came out. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format its uses is very different. Sorry, but there's just no way that you can make an SDHC card work with your camera. You'll need to use a standard SD card only, those 2GB or less. Fortunately, 2GB standard SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, as you can see from this link from Amazon.

For others reading with similar problems, but different cameras, there are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

When i was using the

Greetings - You're absolutely right - Your camera should work with any rechargeable or alkaline AA batteries.

Have you tried using a second set of batteries besides the first and are they new batteries or batteries that have been lying around in a drawer?

If they're new you might want to try an old trick that might help and get a regular pencil with an eraser and use the eraser to clean the contacts on both ends of the battery compartment. When you're done make sure you blow out any bits of eraser that might have crumbled off.

If the batteries are new and the contacts are clean your camera has some kind of problem and I suggest you visit Fuji Films tech support website HERE.

Good Luck,

My camera finepixA820 can't show

Usually this is caused by a corrupt memory card. This can be causes by a large variety of things, such as but not limited to, exposure to extreme cold or heat, as well as turning the camera off before the image last taken has finished encoding to the card. Try to put the card into a computer and see if the files show up there, if not then the files are gone for good, and your only real fix is most likely going to be getting a new memory card.
Hope this helped,

Lost cd rom for computer can not down load

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Lens is stuck and will not retract

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

When i turn it on

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.

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.
