Dreaded FZ zoom stuck
Aug 31, 2014

Whomever started that thread did put the jinx out there.  I had never had that problem with my FZ 150 or my FZ 200.

I have had the FZ 1000 for about 3 weeks now and guess what the damn lens got stuck.  Would only zoom from 25-75mm.  Had been working just fine, despite being dropped the first week I got it.

I tired taking the batteries out and replacing them, no luck. I checked out the link about "stuck zoom lenses", no luck either.

Well the helpful folks at B&H tech support had me go into the menu and reset the camera settings and it worked like a charm.  So far so good.

I would be tempted to send it back to B&H, but of course they are out of stock.  I bought the camera for an upcoming trip and would have time constraints anyway.  Hopefully this fix takes care of the problem, only time will tell.

So if your lens gets stuck, try resetting your camera and perhaps it will work for you too.
