Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A700 Digital Camera ?

Zoom error on my daughters fujifilm a700

\015 Bought this camera from ebay 4 weeks ago and gave it my daughter as an xmas present. As soon as it is turned on the zoom error message comes on (the zoom is stuck out) the lens is almost completly open, please help. Im now really cursing for being a cheapskate in the first place and buying a second hand.\015

Answers :

Since you bought the camera second hand, and presumably it is no longer under warranty, it is likely that it is not worth the cost of repair. However, there are some things you CAN try yourself at home. See this link for a list of things to try. Good luck!

Oh, and leave that eBay seller NEGATIVE FEEDBACK for selling you a broken camera! If you already left positive feedback, go back and leave a followup comment saying it was not as advertised (broken) and you will never purchase from the seller again. The comment will be seen by people who read feedback comments (not just look at the rating) before buying.
Try calling Fuji support and seeing if you can get it repaired or replaced. The camera as it is, is defective.
