The zoom won't come out when I try to turn my camera on, it just turns a little bit, then turns back to the original place, and the screen says zoom error. I've tried different batteries, and taking out the memory card and putting it back in. The model is FujiFilm; FinePix A400. What should I do?


Lens errors 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. O ... Digital Cameras

I purchased a Fujifilm finepix Z20fd camera from target last december. About a month ago, after putting a full charged battery into the camera I pushed the slider to turn it on and it would not come on. The battery charger tells me it is fully charged. After sliding the front back and forth a few times I left it in the "on" position and took out the battery and put it back in. It came on, but would not flash. Also I was able to close the slider, but the camera stayed on until I took out the

It has happened once before and I reset the camera through the menu and the msg went away and the camera went bck to normal so when it happened again I press reset but this time it hasn't made a difference. Any suggestions?

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

Error 99 This is the second day with the camera and i got a Error 99, i read up on some websites that said to take out battery for a few mins and that resets the error, well it worked. Before I reset it I did take off the lens and put it back on. Now the error seems to be gone. I took the camera out with me to work and it was quite cold in the car so i am hoping that it was the moisture/dew that caused this error. Anyone else have any input on this?

My fujifilm E550 digital camera has a problem where the cilyndrical piece in front that usually moves in/out is stuck half way (won't go back inside) and the camera will not take pictures. The camera is giving me a "zoom error" message. This problem started when the batteries where running out of charge. The problem is not resolving even when I put in fully charged batteries.


You may need to use some light "force" to manipulate the lens barrel into its proper orientation. Try a combination of turning it on and helping the barrel to rotate one way or the other. Also try a little manipulation when the camera is shut off, to ... Digital Cameras

Zoom error Today after using my camera for awhile the back screen displayed "zoom error" and a little sound whirled. Then the camera shut off by itself.

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please


The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

I don't know how to restart the camera and if that means turning it of then on it still doesn't work. What can I do now?


If your camera went into "standby" mode, the lens retracted and you may have thought it was off. You put it into the bag and slight pressure on a button reactivated it and the lens tried to come out but may have been prevented by something in the bag ... Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera

It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera


Fuzzy pictures are most often caused by not holding the camera steady enough it's the number one problem with shooting "Live View".

I have purchased two Kodak C143 Digital Cameras since August of this year. The first one, only had for a couple of weeks, worked great at first and then when I would turn it on the lens would come out but there would be no screen at times. At other times the screen would disappear after a couple of seconds, but the lens would not close. I tried taking the batteries out and putting back in, but that did't help.
