Turn camera on and it zooms all the way in

When I turn camera on it zooms all the way in and I'm unable to do anything as it seems to be locked in the zoom position. I've tried everything.

    I have exactly the same problem.
    I haven't tried anything exciting yet, I've only just started fishing for clues.

    My camera also zooms all the way out to an extreme close-up & none of the buttons function (menu, trash, display, etc). Have tried the power-on with various buttons depressed but no luck. Other fixes/ideas appreciated!

    Anybody find a solution? I have the same problem. Zooms in all the way and cannot use any of the buttons. Could this be a problem with the batter? Anybody try a new battery?

    Hi, I tried the suggested solution several times and also all other press-one-button-while switching the FX9 on, but the zoom problem remains. I also removed memory card and battery, trying again without result.

Hi, i've an fx8. i had a problem 2 weeks ago. my objective didn't want to close when i switched the camera off. it remained open. when i switched the camera on again, the objetcive has closed and opened again, and remained in this position after switching it off. i tried some button combination, like menu button on, and power the camera on. it didn't work, but the second was the shotting button on, power on combination. an it worked, my camera did some kind of reset. it returned to the original position, and everithing is working since then. so try it.

Zoom error Fuji S1000fd


I have seen instances where people managed to get this problem fixed themselves. the zoom mechanism, it seems, is not all that complex. If you think you've got nothing to lose (there is a risk factor) just take it apart and have a look. Good luck!

Zoom


My zoom problem was a combination of the software and hardware when it came to the neutral position for the zoom slider. When the camera is first turned on, if the physical zoom slider (hardware) is in the neutral position (you are not touching it) the camera software does nothing, but if you are pushing the physical zoom slider when you turn on the camera, the software resets the "zero zoom" position into memory. The solution to my problem was to push and hold the physical zoom slider towards the wide position and the software realize reset the "zero zoom" neutral position. This may take a few tries to get it right (if you over compensate, do the opposite and push the slider towards "T" when you turn it on), but I hope this will solve your problem and save you a few bucks.

Over exposure when zooming


If you want to be able to use optical zoom try getting a more advanced camera because cameras like Nikon Coolpix 4300 does`nt have quality zoom its very poor and you can see it yourself the images gets blurry when maximize your zoom.

If this is an SD card you may need to take out the card and slide the small switch on the card itself to the "Unlock Position"

Good Luck!
