Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera ?

Zoom error appears in viewfinder on FinePix S7000 and cannot take photos.. Please help

Answers :

Hi,\012recently got zoom error problem on my loyal fuji s7000, after years of service. first time, I was able to retract lens by hitting it gently while power cycling. 2nd time, hitting wouldn't work so ended up opening the lens barrel assembly. It inst that hard as described by some of the posts. here is what I did:\0121. open up first three screws near lens.\0122. gently pull out the front assembly, which composed of front holding part, focus ring, white toothed ring. \0123. then opened up three screws near flash side, pulled out the barrel assembly. it also have a plastic ring in it.\0124. noticed some dust around plastic ring, cleaned it. Wiggle the internal barrel, it moves back and forth. Tried power cycling camera few times to make sure it works.\0125. put the ring back together in barrel first aligning with peg and hole.\0126. put the barrel back in and tighten screws near flash.\0127. put the white and external focus ring back on.\0128. put the external holding ring in.\0129. it is easy to align if you slide it inline with front screws.\012done and camera works for now.\012-Salman

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the \012probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use\012\012\012\012\012\012\012 these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly ,\012 try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the \012shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , \012and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then \012try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently \012pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may \012cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another\012 way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and \012then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to\012 not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and \012down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the \012camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your \012camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of \012your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair \012center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to \012replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest\012 you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any \012off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about\012 warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope\012 \012the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need \012any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you \012found this helpful.

Hey there. I have a Fujfilm Finepix A820. Yesterday I noticed that when I turn it on and try to take a picture, as soon as I touch the shutter button to take a shot the camera turns off, but the lens is still out, it does not retract. My friends say this was the end of my camera. But I can do whatever I want with it, set it, watch photos I took before.

All of a sudden i can't see anything through my viewfinder on my canon 5d (not Mark II) even when I look at a bright light (then it is only a dim blur).

Please advise as I am traveling and need my camera to operate correctly. Many thanks, Mia

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I was helping someone download pics from his new camera and tried both Adobe Photoshop album starter and the finepix software. But when i open a photo in Photoshop, it says the photo size is 72 DPI. (My nikon doesn't do this when downloaded.)

A couple of things - I don't think you mean 500 megapixels (that is a lot!) but I assume you mean you expected a high resolution image. You may have it! The dpi setting is largely irrelevant (for photographers) as it simply relates number of pixels ... Fuji Finepix S5800 Digital Camera

Capture Error I can successfully take about 10 photos and then get either garbled weird images or a "capture error". I've updated firmware hoping that would help but to no avail. The only way I can continue to take pictures is to reformat the flashcards.

This is somewhat of a long-shot, but try formatting both of your cards in your camera. I once bought a digital camera and tore my hair out with similar symptoms until I formatted the card in the camera. If the problem persists, I'd call Kodak. Good l ... Kodak DCS 14n Digital Camera

Picture error I have an Olympus SP-51OUZ camera. Nearly every photo I take, when reviewed, comes up with 'picture error' and a big warning exclamation mark (in red on a blue background). Only about 1 in 20 photos taken are ok. I have formatted the card but it still happens. When I used the card on my laptop it scanned it & said there were no problems with it. Obviously it's a nightmare because I have to review every single photo to check it has come out! Please help! Rachel
