Zoom Control The zoom control has stopped working. In the Summer on holiday, I noticed that the zoom control was working only intermittently. It seemed to be making poor contact and I found that flicking it sometimes helped. Now it has ceased to work at all. Is there any way of cleaning the contacts or having a service carried out?

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. When I press the shutter button it does appear to correctly adjust the focus, but it will not actually take any pictures.

Zoom Error Hi all, New to site and hope you can help me! I have a Fuji S3000 that has worked very well for last couple of years and all of sudden has packed up, coming up with "zoom error" when you turn it on.
