Please go to settings and set it to Factory Defaults. And when the zoom starts working you can set it to your preferences.
Smart kid! He/She has set the camera in simple mode! That is the reason why the zoom is not working. No need to worry though. It is very easy to change the setting to pict mode. To do this press the Menu/Set button, use the arrow keys to scroll, highlight the Pict mode setting and press Menu/set to apply the setting. Press menu/set to exit.You may want to download the manual for troubleshooting issues like this in future.

Casio ex-z750. I have a problem with the zoom on this camera. You can zoom in, but when zooming out it activates the 'Best Shot' scene selection. If you press the zoom button again the scene selection dissapears, then the third push allows you to zoom out. I have 'reset' the camera to standard settings but htis did not help. Everything else works fine. Hopefuly you can suggest something. Thanks

Sorry Chris but that is definately an electrical issue that needs to be checked by repairs. I recommend that you send that in so they can check the internal board. ... Casio Digital Cameras

Digital camera I have a digital camera (Pentax Optio A10) and just recently the camera stop working. Every time I turn on the power button, the lens zoom out and a few seconds later the camera will turn off, and the lens will come back in. I bought a new battery thinking it help, but it still does the same thing. The camera is not even 2 years old yet and I paid over $300 for it. HELP?!?!

I had almost similar problems with my A10 from day one. The camera shuts down before the battery is depleted, most of the time while I was operating the zoomlens. I bought a new battery, but that didn't solve it. Later I decided to take it apart as a ... Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera

First let me say that I know nothing about the camcorded (600x digital zoom). It was my sons and he bought a new one and gave me his. I charged the batteries and put them in and I put the proper vhs cassett in.

I set Recording start/stop on A and pressed the red button but nothing happens. It just continues showing featues. Can you help me.

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.

What about the menu switch, manipulate it, see what that does. ... Digital Cameras

This is a recently purchased camera that was working beautifully until recently. It just stopped taking pictures; when the shutter release is pressed, nothing happens. The only clue I have to what is happening came when I pressed the Quick View button and got a No Card message. I changed the CF card to one I took from my Canon Rebel XT and that I knew was working fine - again the message No Card when the QV button was pressed. Does that help at all in defining the problem? Any ideas what the pro

Brand new (one hour old) Canon Powershot A490 looks like it has a software bug. All the buttons used to work but now no button responds except fpr the left button when one of the two bottom buttons (camera and menu) is pressed.

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

I pressed d shutter button, it doesn't constantly work. If its working, it captures the pics like normal. Mostly I pressed the button, it doesn't do anything even it is already focussed. Please help me.

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?
