Is it possible to fix the spring on the lens cover of my Fuji Finepix 1400 Zoom?

hi i had the same problem with mine,i took the case apart but could see nothing untoward,reassembled it and just out of frustration i turned camera on if you listen carefully you will hear a whirring sound as soon as it starts turn camera off do this repatidly a few times but do not let the motor finish its cycle,hey presto no more fault. i can only assume that the motor sticks and by turning on and off really quickly frees it up...

I had the same problem turn up after a few weeks. When I used the zoom
button, the lens pushed out again and the camera worked normally for
that time. I had to go through that procedure every time I turned the
I then sent it back on warranty and they replaced the lens assembly as well as the mode dial knob etc.
This camera has a 3 year warranty.

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.

If you recently dropped the camera, you may have damaged the lens housing -- that will require professional repair. Otherwise, your problem may be as simple as low batteries or corrosion on the battery terminals inside the camera. Make sure that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and replace them in the camera. This cleaning works about 90% of the time, and I hope it clears up your problem.

With fresh batteries inserted in your camera, try to do this little trick:
1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.
2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.
Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.
Hope this helps.
