Having problems with your Fuji Digital Cameras ?

I have a Fuji finepix j38. I went on the beach and it got a little wet and it wrote zoom error and now it isn't charging either.

Hi,
\012
\012Welcome to Fixya. Having a "zoom error" message is a camera malfunction, in this issue you can try to turn off and then turn it on again but this time you have to take care not to touch the camera lens or try not to blocked the camera lens while retrackting. If you still have the same issue you can try to visit this site for some steps you can do before sending your camera to your Fujifilm center.
\012
\012In regards your issue about the charging of your battery,as you said before that you bought your camera to the beach. Try to clean the terminals with soft and dry cloth. Also, possible that the battery has reached the ends of its charging life. Purchase a new battery. If the battery still fails to charged, you have to contact your Fujifilm center.
\012
\012Please let me know if you have any question.

\012Thank you for using Fixya.

My Fuji Finepix z1 is having a few problems. When I slide it to on, I can focus on something take a pic but then it swithches itself off without saving it.

It doesn't seem to be saving any new vids I take either,as soon as i stop recording I get "Write Error" across the screen and it switches off.. A few months after I had it the sound output in Video mode stopped working, although when I transfered it to my P.
