Zoom lens stuck in the out position

My zoom lenses appears to be stuck in the out position. I thought maybe it needed a charge and I did that and the camera will not turn on nor will the zoom go in or out automatically like it did. It looks to me like it is jammed so it clicks when you attempt to turn it on. I also tried removing the battery and installing it and that didn't do anything either. I'm afraid to take the camera apart so I haven't done anything else to it. Do you have any suggestions or can you recommend an authorized dealer that I can bring it to in order to be fixed? Thank you in advance for any help, Julianne

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

The zoom ring has limited use...maybe something stuck inside lens

If you are unable to maximize the zoom capabalities of your lens, the mechanical gears might have been jammed and or broken. Do not push it if it won't let you as you might break the lense. What you can do is to bring it to your local camera shop or service center to have it fixed.

Zoom is stuck

There is a reasonable common fault where screws internally come loose and cause the zoom to jam - you will need to get the lens serviced.

Hi there, I need accurate draving of EFs 17-85 or is parts list.Wish to order damaged part in side of the lens barel uder rubber ring for zoom to replace it.Is a litle metal electrical contactor with 5 or...

I bought a flex cable from ebay for my efs 17-85mm lens. Maybe you can try ebay and search for flex cable efs 17-85mm (to find similar suppliers) or search for the efs 17-85mm zoom contacts. The part that is broken sends the actual zoom position of the lens to the camera so that a Canon external electronic flash can correctly set its flash zoom position and the exif data is correct.

Panasonic DMC-FZ7 digital camera.

I believe the FZ7 determines that the lense cap is still on when it can't extend the zoom lense because the lense cap is in the way. I would check to see if your zoom lense housing is somehow stuck (could be sand or dirt in it) which is creating enough resistance to make the camera think the lense cap is impeding the zoom lense from extending.

Frozen zoom lens

Sounds like there is a misalignment internally. This will probably need to be repaired at a shop.

My cameras got an outty !!

Has it had a bump lately? Most times this is caused by the camera being kept in the glovebox or similar. The drive gears for the lens are very fine and delicate. They are not easy to pull apart either.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
