Fuji a 205 camera zoom error

\015 How do i fix this\015

Answers :

What has worked for me and what seems to work with both the Sony and Fuji cameras I have had problems with is to get physical with them. Their case is built like a tank but inadvertently jolting, or impeding of the lens during operation, seems to cause zoom problems. If the lens is stuck IN the case (happened to my daughter's Fuji ), then hold the camera in one hand, turn it on and smack it firmly into the palm of your free hand. If it is stuck OUT which is what happened to my Sony Cybershot when it was knocked out of my hand and the lens was skewed to one side was to grab the lens and use reasonable force to realign it, both cameras are now working. In both cases I had little to lose as the Fuji had once before gone in for warranty repair for two months for the same "Zoom error" and the Sony was still under warranty and insured so if I did damge it more after bouncing it off concrete, it would not have been apparent to the repair centre.

These fixes may not cure everyone's ills but I hope my experiences will give you the courage to have a go if you have nothing to lose.
