\015\012After the basics (cleaning the lens, replacing the batteries, etc.), try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
\015\012The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

\015\012The error indicates a problem with the motor that controls focus extension. I would lean toward grit or dirt blocking the threads on the focus track - it got gummed up. If the camera is still under warranty, contact the store you purchased it from, or Fujifilm directly, and obtain a Return or RMA. If the camera is NOT under warranty, you can try cleaning it - shut it off, pull out the battery, unplug any cables connected to it, pull out the memory card(if present). Get a soft bristled toothbrush and some rubbing alcohol, and VERY GENTLY brush a bit of alcohol into the seam where the focal arm retreats into the camera. The intention is to get just a little bit of that isopropyl into the focus motor, where it can break up any dirt that may be stuck in the threads. Most important, however - don't get the alcohol on the lense, as it will be very difficult to clean off, and DO NOT plug in the battery or power supply until you've given the camera sufficient time to dry; Isopropyl evaporates quickly, but to be safe, give it AT LEAST twenty minutes to dry.

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?
