I have a finepix s3000 fuji camera that ceased working sunday . I have researched the problem and it seems if I could manually pull out my retracted zoom lens which is now nicely nestled in the in position - and turn the camera back off and on that the camera would correct itself..

I have not been successful in finding a safe manner to grab my lens and pull it out - it is just over an inch and half wide. There is not much space between the lens and the surrounding metal. About the width of a metal nailfile. there edge is smooth so it is not easy to grab. I am wondering if there might be some tool for such tasks? feel free to email me at cybercanoe at american on line if you have a solution or recommendation

I called Fuji about this before I bought my e550, and they told me if the zoom error occurs, take out the bateries and let the camera sit for several hours. Replace the batteries after several hours, and then turn it on. It should work, if not, give Fuji a call.
