Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A500 Digital Camera ?

My daughter(5) dropped it and when they turned it on the lens came out and won't go back in.And on the screen it say "Focus Error".Can it be fixed or should I get her a replacement?


Answers :

Lens errors (focus error's on Fufi's) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...\015\012Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.\015\012

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

My camera lense is stuck out and when I turn on the camera it makes a funny noise and says "lense error" on the screen. Is there anything I can do to fix it myself before taking it to get fixed?

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?!
