Question about Fuji FinePix F470 Digital Camera
My zoom on my camera is stuck outward. When I power the camera on I can hear the gears inside trying to initialize the zoom and it sounds like a grinding noise since the zoom is already out. I now get a black 'blank' screen and on the first time I would get a picture with me zoom half way out and the display would have a zoom error on it. Any tips on how to fix this if there is even a way?? Thank you.
Try turning the power on and gently pulling the lens outward as it powers up. This may force the gears to re-align themselves. Use "fingertip" pressure only. Don't force it excessively. Also try turning on, and then applying slight pressure to the front of the lens while you power it off. You can also try rotating the lens barrel segments while it powers up or shuts off. Sometimes either can get the lens back on track.
