Having problems with your Kyocera Finecam S4 Digital Camera ?

Error-C1 I was on holiday in dusty hot conditions when my second hand camara became unusable. I turned the camara on to take a photo and the zoom lens and shutter became stuck. The screen went blue and 'error-C1' appeared on the screen. Every time I turned it on thereafter the same blue screen came up and it makes a strange mechanical noise when I turn it on. It also turns itself off after a few seconds but the zoom still doesn't shut. The battery symbol still appeared but it appeared to be out


Answers :

Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).

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. I turned it on and off a couple of times, but without success. The lens is extended and will not withdraw back into the camera. I have taken out the batteries and re-inserted them. Finally, I gently pushed the lenses back to the body of the camera (as they seemed to be trying to go back to the camera), I am still getting the zoom error reading a

Just bought the ViviCam X014. Installed batteries and SD card. The camara will turn on and the LED screen will illuminate (becomes white) but that's about all the thing will do. No image appears in the LED screen. I cannot zoom in, or out, and pressing the Mode button (or any button for that matter) does nothing. There was no user manual with the camara, just the basic quick start guide, which has provided no information on what to do. What am I missing?


Are these regular batteries or rechargeables? Are they fully charged? If they are regular batteries that came with the camera, test them to be sure they didn't die in the packaging. If all fails, return the camera. ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen. The lense does not move outwards after I turn the power on, nor does the plastic sliding screen close when I turn the camera off. The lense is exposed whether or not the camera is on or off. The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off. When the camera is on, the screen is working, but the image is blurry. I tried other poste

On my Fuji s2000hd I have a zoom error, the screen is black and I can't take pictures. The lens will not zoom out.
