The zoom only extended intermittently

Hi, The zoom only extended intermittently, then not at all."LensError" message permanant. Camera unusable. This problem occurred when turned on unintentionally, while in the case where zoom could not extend. The design of this camera left the switch very exposed with no locking mechanism to compensate. Therefore, a "zoom jam" is likely to happen. (This same thing happened the first time only 4 months after it's purchase, Nikon, itself, repaired it wth no charge. But even though I've been aware of this potential problem and handled it with care for 2 and 1/2 years, it happened again. Please check to see if Nikon has recognized it's culpability and will support this repair. I will do the same thing, but Nikon is notorious for it's non-response and may be more receptive to your inquiries.) Thankyou, Irene

Its going to be hard for nikon to ever admit culpability over this problem, since many forms of miss use that is not an outcome of this specific design flaw may result in the same "LensError", which is a very common failure. Admitting culpability will cost them too much. This is not to say that it's not their fault... and if you go with your claim to a Nikon service center they might accept the truth of it, and atleast give you a discount on the repair, or offer better conditions on an upgrade. They don't have to, but once in a while you catch them in a good mood. Good luck!

I turned on my camera and I get an error message that says, Lens Error Camera will shut off automatically. Then the camera shuts off. The lens will not pop out?

Hi.
This problem occurs when there is zoom-block problem. The solution is to change all the zoom-block, but normally this is more expensive than a new camera.
This mechanism fails due to sand, dust or just useful life expired.

I couldn't open the camera. when im trying to open it it shows and error message on screen "zoom did not operate correctly...."

Digital cameras with shutter covers sometimes jam, keeping teh cover from retracting and the lens from extending. That is what is giving you the message. You may be able to assist it by gently pushin it open when you turn on the camera. Key phase there is "gentle". Do not force it open as you may permanently damage it. If the motor is locked up or the lens cover still refuses to open, take it to a camera shop for service.

Fix zoom error

The lens probably has some dirt or pocket fuzz caught in it. Try spraying around it with a can of compressed air when it is extended. Also spray the lens.

Finepix j27 When the camera is turned on "Zoom error" message appears and lense is stuck in an extended position. When the power is turned off, the lense remains extended. Do you know how...

hi, Zoom Error occurs when there the lenses are not able to move and something is obstructing the movement like some dust or sand grains etc., to dislodge the obstructing particles try tapping the lense side corner of the camera on a table top lightly (not too hard please, as the lense and autofocus combination is quite fragile) a couple of times in switch off mode and trying to power on after every 2-3 taps.

or you might send it out to a service centre, the charges are generally just the serviceing charges as no new parts needed.

hope this helps
cheers

Lens will not retract

It sound like a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) 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!

Super Zoom

In addition to the optical zoom, this camera is equipped with a super zoom and digital zoom for taking telephoto and wide-angle shots. The super zoom and digital zoom cannot be used at the same time. Super zoom is used to extend the optical zoom up to 14× magnification. However, the resolution is automatically fixed at 1600 ×1200. Digital Zoom is used to extend the maximum optical zoom to approximately 40x. However, pictures taken with the digital zoom may appear grainy. Camera shake is likely to occur at these higher magnifications, please see “camera shake” question for further details on this.
