You have a problem with your lens, maybe a decentered lens. Make sure there are no obstructions in the way of the lens. It may need to be serviced.

SOURCE: Fuji Xp camera says "Zoom

The lens error indicates that the movement is inhibited possibly by sand or grit. It also may be misaligned or an internal component has failed. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck and try removing batteries and memory card. There are a number of things you can try:
- Ensure batteries are fully charged
- Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand or other dirt etc
- Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
- Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 2 minutes and refit

If no luck then we have to try some things that could possibly result in damaging your camera so should only be tried if happy to take that risk...
a. Try thumping the camera into your other hand, by thumping into your hand you are trying to jar the mechanism loose, by using your hand you will hopefully not do it too hard or it will hurt. You may need to do this a dozen or so times in different places to work. I have found the flat of the camera bottom into the flat of your hand best..
b. If the lens is stuck in the out position then remove the batteries and try twisting the lens first one way then the other, do not apply excessive force when doing this or you can break gears, you are trying to reposition not force... Likewise if the lens looks like it is crooked you can try pushing it back into position. This has a higher chance of doing more harm than the thump so please be careful...
c. Dismantle the camera, not for the faint hearted, you need to dismantle the lens assembly into the main body of the camera.

Additionally, here are a few links to some other things to try. With newer cameras I am usually hesitant to suggest these options since they include some more extreme procedures that may cause further damage if not done correctly, but since yours is probably no longer under warranty, they may save you an expensive repair bill. An older Canon camera is used to demonstrate these procedures but, the lens structure of these compact cameras is the same so the examples do apply to this unit. These procedures are effective about 60% of the time. Click on or copy and paste the links into your browser.

If the "do it yourself" approach doesn't work out for you and you need conventional repair you can get an online estimate at the link and please see the note below: unitedcamera.com/FUJI-FINEPIX-E550 (sample)

Hope helps.

FinePix F480. Zoom keeps coming out at an angle and jamming so that it won't return into casing.This gives 'Zoom Errors.'


The lens needs to be replaced, or if you can try and SNAP the lens back towards center so it's not at an angle you might be able to fix it. Most likely not though, and you will have to replace the lens.

Fuji a500 give "focus error" message and won't shoot pictures


I am sorry to say that this design of lens is the worst i've seen from Fuji.
Focus error relates to the mechanism right at the front of the lens. The motor and drive gear are in the end piece of the lens, as opposed to other cameras that have the focus mechanism in the back of the lens and is easily access able once inside the camera.
Does the lens stick? or buzz on power up? If you tap gently, with your finger nail, on the actual lens on power up ( you may have to do this several times) you may find the lens comes out ok and no error msg is displayed (until you try zooming).This will probably be because something is jamming the gears or the tiny tension spring used on the gears has come off. I have tried to clear several A500's with this problem with limited success.

Fuji finepix f50 camera was dropped with lense out, and now wont return. it also says focus error on screen. I have the same problem and Fuji want £88.00 to repair it - you can buy a new camera for...


Unfortunately dropping this model, and the f40, 45, 47 fd models, is suicidal for the camera. The lens has an inner slide ring which other models do not have and this ring has three lugs to keep the lens from spinning when powered up and used. Unfortunately these lugs are also clips which hold the focus lens inplace. These are tiny. hard to repair

A210 zoom error


When you first turn the camera on, grab the lens, pull on it slightly. Turn the camera off and try it again. If it doesn"t work the first time , pull on the lens slightly again. It worked on mine

Fuji digital camera A370 lens sticking


It seems the life of digital cameras are 2-3 years. The camera has lens gear problem. The lens assy fails most on digital cameras with moving lens. The plastic gears in the lens assy. are quite fragile in design and when used regularly, gears tends to wear down and eventually damages the lens movement. Many time a small impact or stress on lens when extended do the same damage. The parts are sold as a lens assy and repair cost may run around $100.
