I have a finepix s3000 fuji camera that ceased working sunday . I have researched the problem and it seems if I could manualy pull out my retracted zoom lens which is now nicely nestled and frozenin 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. the threads for attachables is on the outside metal sleeve around the lens that extends - and is afixed form.rats
