Having problems with your Casio EXILIM EX-Z1000 Digital Camera ?
Focus & Zoom motor out of sync
\015 Hello sir,My name is Corey & I own a casio EX-Z1000. Unfortunately I have this problem that I can turn the camera on in file mode but not picture mode. The lens comes out, beeps like it is turning on than shuts off. I am a telephone repair man who is good with my hands & fixing things. The problem is that I live in Michigan & we are in DIRE Straights up here due to the economy. I almost bought a new battery with money I do not have until I read your solution. Thank you very much for saving me the money. That alone will pay for my internet bill for the next couple of months so God bless you. I bought the camera years ago when times were good. My question is do you think I may be able to fix it myself or will I probably do more harm than good? Also is there a simple explanation of how to sync the focus & zoom motor up? You have already saved me total fustration on top of the guilt I would have had spending money on a new battery. But I would like to hear it straight meaning "if youv'e never done it don't try or it is possible". I'm so bummed. It stinks owning such an expensive piece of equipment that doesn't work properly. If you have a moment I would be greatfull recieving a reply.Thankyou Sir.\015

I've got a Fiji S1000 finepix, the camera keeps sending me a 'focus error' or zoom error' that does not permit me too zoon in or out, it also does not permit me to take any shots. When i got it yesterday, The zoom worked, my guess is that a gear inside the mechanisms either broke or are stuck. When I turn the seletor knob, i hear some motor trying to work. What can I do to solve this on my own?

Olympus SP800uz. The camera makes sound when I focus on any object, like some motor is moving inside even if I am not using zoom. The sound increases gradually when used for some time.
You are possibly using an Fulltime AF mode for focussing.See user manual page 34 or the AF mode is set to AF Tracking. If these modi are set, the camera continuously tries to focus on the subject, hence the sound. ... Olympus SP800UZ Digital Camera

Hi, I've a Sigma 28-105mm aspherical 3.5-5.6 lens. Auto focus does not engage. I can hear the motor trying, but the ring does not turn. When I switch to manual focus, I can turn the ring to focus manually, but I still hear the motor trying to use autofocus. Additionally, sometimes the shutter will not fire in manual focus while the motor is still searching. I've cleaned the contacts, but no joy. I suspect a faulty switch, but that doesn't completely explain the autofocus not engaging. I am
Well, I think you have at least one problem pinpointed, in that I suspect the focusing ring is jammed, and cannot rotate with the electromagnet signals. The other problem might be a faulty auto/manual switch. Of course, check for oxidation and e ... Digital Cameras
My camera worked fine for 3 years, when suddenly .... when i'm zooming fast (zoom button pushed down) camera switches of. If i'm zooming slowly everything is ok. Some master said that zoom lens motor was demagnetized. Need change motor. Is it true and is it possible to buy this motor from you and what could be price? thank you.
I would say to check the batteries and their connecting surfaces plus the contacts in the battery compartment. With bad connections on the batteries, when the camera zooms slowly it does not use much power. When zooming fast it uses more power (curre ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again. [This problem happens indoor

Canon Sx120 IS camera will not zoom closeup from a tripod at 19" set at macro!!! Instructions say the camera cannot focus in the range of the yellow bar, well how do you get away from the yellow bar? Which will also result in removal of the macro setting! Any zooming to get closeup blurs out of focus no matter what I do and that's when still within the optical zoom range.

I receive the E:61:00 error on screen, and the screen will not focus. I shook the camera around (per forums) and the screen focused for a minute, but would not zoom in out out. When I tried to zoom either way it would make a whirling sound. I opened my camera to have a tiny little piece, with "C 805" inscribed on it, to fall out. I do not know where this belongs, and still can not get my camera to focus. Help!

I was using my Nikon D40 at son's baseball game with the 55-200 mm lens & was too close to the fence when zooming since it tapped the fence. Now it makes a squeaky noise when trying to auto focus. It will not take a pic on auto focus but will focus and if I flip the A / M switch on the lens itself over to M it will take a pic.It will take pics fine with the 18 - 55 mm lens. It's nota problem with the Zoom, but with the autofocus. When it attempts to autofocus, it goes thru the extremes of the le

Wont Focus I dropped the camera from my tall dresser about 5 feet and now it wont focus. It makes a clicking noise when I try to zoom in. Also when I zoom in it gets dark around the coners of the screen. Can we fix this or do we need to take it in and get it repaired.
If its making a noise when you try to zoom in and out I would suspect physical damage. The more you mess with it the greater the chances of damaging it beyond economic repair. I would take it to the local authorized canon repair shop. ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
T7 video A colleague of mine is interested in a new digicam. He likes to take short video sequences and was wondering if the T7 features proper optical zoom with continuous auto-focus, auto-exposure while videoing? I know the first generations of digicams only allowed digital zoom and wouldn't change focus from the point at which one started filming. Also, any general experiences of video on the T7 - how long can one film etc?
Hello\015\012\015\012The zoom does not work on the T7 while you video, you have to zoom first and then start to video, then it is fixed at that zoom setting.\015\012\015\012Other than that, the video is pretty good, I have taken video clips up to abo ... Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera

Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks
