Usually down to the lens block assy being faulty.Is the lens retracting and opening properly?.It usually turns out to be worn gears in the lens drive assy or the result of a fall.Either way will be expensive repair!My advise is check and see whether camera is covered by insurance for accidental knocks.,

I have got a zoom error on my fuji Finepix V10. When you turn the camera on the zoom starts to come out and then quickly retracts. How can I fix it?

Sounds like the timing for the sensors on the lens are out and will need to be reset.
lens unit will need to be removed and reset

Fine-Pix A400 is showing Focus Error and will not allow photos to be taken. In addition, the lens will not retract when the camera is shut off. This problem occurred after using the zoom procedure several...

Here is a quick fix to try. If you attempted to remove the focus error doing the 3 times on and off, and it didnb't help to this. Power the camera on, you will hear the gear skipping as if it is slipping. Right at the moment you turn of the camera push the lens in manually slightly and gently. This will reposition the timing of the lens to focus. This usually fixes the Focus error when the lens is stuck in the out position and never retracts. I have had this happen twice, and it cleared both times by doing this. Good Luck

Hi, my zoom is stuck out and won't retract.

Your lens motor is most likely burnt out. The only way to continue taking pictures is push the lens in manually, You may have problems with the focus after doing this, so just turn the lens manually until you are zoomed in properly. If you have a warranty now is the time to use it.

Fuji FinePix F40fd-Zoom error

Unfortunately this is one of the hardest cameras I have come across to repair. The plastic guide lugs inside the lens which keep it stable are so small that once they get damaged they are virtually impossible to repair and only a replacement part seems to rectify the problem. Source a donor camera on ebay for a cheaper option than sending to fuji. F45fd and F47fd use the same lens so these are an option for a donor if F40fd is not available.

Finepix A400

If the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs. Problem may caused by lens zooming gears stuck.

Error message now showing

Does the lens extend and retract as normal?
If so then the internal drive gear for the zoom / focus has been damaged and will need to be repaired/ replaced.
If the whole lens will not move or is stuck then it needs to be removed, stripped and re-assembled.
