Digital Zoom is best ignored in any camera it simply blows up a section of an image already taken, You can do that far better with an image editor in the computer. As for the Optical Zoom - it does indeed seem to be repair time- As it is only a year and half old- may be Canin will be sympathetic and offer a cheap swap out.

SOURCE: Zoom will not retract

Dear Grammie,

You have either experienced a lens error or your zoom dial is broken (both usually caused by some sort of impact damage, but which can be spontaneously occuring).

Look for an error message on your camera's LCD screen such as "E18," or "lens error restart camera." If you do not see a lens error but simply cannot retract your zom lens (go into wide angle mode) via the zoom lever then it simply maybe a broken command dial. Either way, however, you will need to have the camera serviced in all likelihood. Call tech support at 1-800-828-4040 M-F from 8 am to 12 midnight EST and Saturdays until 8 pm EST. Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Remove your batteries and look inside the battery compartment. Notice that there should be three small phillips screws at the bottom of the compartment. Tighten up all of these screws.

There is a one-year warranty on the camera if you purchased it new. Contact your regional Canon support facility, and they will be able to give you your options for getting the camera repaired under warranty.

How do I enable samsung tl105's digital zoom?

From the manual:

Optical zoom TELE : Push the Zoom W/T lever to the right to
enlarge the subject.
Digital zoom TELE : Push the Zoom W/T lever to the right again
in optical 4x zoom mode to enable digital
zoom (software tele). Release the Zoom

the 5X digital zoom reaches its maximum
magnifi cation, it will not enlarge the image
further, even if you push the Zoom W/T
lever.

The zoom lever is not working moves but doesnt change

If the zoom lever is not working then I would recommend buying a new pair without a zooming mechanism. Zoom binoculars are more trouble than they are worth. Sorry!

Zoom lever sticks

Hi, the only reason the zoom lever sticks is dirt. Either dust or some sort of liquid may have spilled on the camera. If you wipe it off, it does not help as the liquid gets into the zoom lever mechanism.It will have to strippd and cleaned.

Zoom will not work at all

If you decide to open your camera, here's a pictorial disassembly. Don't go any further than popping the top off to examine components in the vicinity of the zoom lever. Look for anything different than what's showing in the picture. Usually the zoom lever and switch gets gunked up with dust and debris that can easily be cleaned off. Use the pictures on page 2 of this website as a guide :

And keep in mind there's a potential for electrical shock. Read this first before you turn any screws:

Flaky zoom

Are you are sure that the problem is in the lever?

If it is so, I have a solution!

We used to play that trick on the old Machine of 80-90s. Just put 1-2 drop of kerosin oil into the contact of the lever after opening that for a while.

Thats all.

Play that lever for number of times before turn that on.

You will get benefit for at least 1 year!

You can use non lubricated machine oil instade of kerosin oil also!

Hope for the best!

Zoom lever (Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera ) does not work

If you can get to the ribbon cable that the zoom lever is attached to, you can use a multimeter or a continuity tester to see if the lever is actually shorting any traces on the ribbon. the zoom lever acts upon a motor that rotates the iner lens barrel, possible the motor lead is open or the switch under the lever is dirty/faulty.
