Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A340 Digital Camera ?
Zoom button broken
\015 Hi\015\012\015\012On the weekend my zoom button was broken. I don't know how but it will zoom in, but not out. Not a real big problem, just annoying especially with the menus.\015\012\015\012But I have contacted FujiFilm and firstly, as I got it in Australia and do not have the warranty information, plus it has to go to Germany (from Denmark) for atleast 2 - 4 weeks, that is not worth it, as I need a camera in the next few weeks.\015\012\015\012I also can not afford a new model right now, so if anybody has some advice about whether this button is fixable and worth an effort on my part, then please let me know :)\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012Matt\015
Hey, I have this camera with the same problem and the fix is easy! After taking it apart, I removed the rocker from the assembly. One of the little pins had broken off. I cut the other one off and then glued a small square block of plastic to it to create a larger attachment surface and switch surface. I then took my dremel and refined the shape of the contact points without cutting all the way through the plastic block. A couple of test fits later, the camera was back together and has not failed yet.
If you can pull the camera apart (carefully) and find the zoom switch it could be that the switch itsekf has jumped the actuator.\015\012\015\012I don't know what method your camera usues but most use a rocker type switch. On the underside of this switch would be a slot which when pushed one way pushes against a small lever of piece of plastic. Let it go and the switch centres itself taking the lever with it. Push the switch the other way and it moves the lever or plastic in the opposite direction. What sometime happens is the lever or plastic somehow gets on the wrong side of this slot. So it will only push the lever in one direction. What you'd have to do is remove the top of the switch and center the lever or piece of plastic and put the camera back together.\015\012\015\012If your zoom is 2 seperate switches then one of the swiches is either faulty, the pin on the underside of the swich is broken or there is a foreign object stopping the switch from activating. You should be able to tell which one it is simply by the feel of the switch. if it's loose and wobbles around the pin would be broken. If it feels stck then maybe there's something stopping it. If it does neither of these things it could be just a faulty button switch which means you're up for a complete switch cable assembly.\015\012\015\012Good luck putting it back together. Just be patient and don't force anything.\015\012\015\012\015\012BMW

The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?

I purchased my G11 end of Nov 2009, and just started to have problems this morning. When shooting, the directional buttons, control dial and func/set button won't work. Also, if I zoom in on a subject the camera automatically zooms out, in, and out again... randomly, as if it had a mind of its own. When viewing photos already taken, the same problem happens. Once it happens, none of the buttons will work. This happens about 1 minute after the camera has been switched on. Is there a way in which

Shutter button does not work on SP-500UZ. Zoom in/out works sporadically (sometimes it jitters a little when zooming). It was working fine until last weekend, when it just stopped working.

What about the menu switch, manipulate it, see what that does. ... Digital Cameras
