    I have a problem with my Nikon N75 i was hoping someone could help me with. It seems like the zoom is jammed. I can't turn the lens zoom in or out. It's locked in at 80mm. The camera did fall off of a nightstand onto the carpet about 2 feet, so i'm worried it has something to do with this. But its possible i pressed something to lock the zoom and i just don't know what i did. It's a relatively new camera. Could someone help me? I'm not quite sure what to do.

    Thanks so much!

    that lens doesnt have any kind of zoom lock. if it wont turn then i think you should take it somewhere to get it looked at.

    check if you have a macro switch on the barrel......it could be locked into your maximum zoom setting......if it is switched on macro switch it back to normal.....i have a N75 also with a 55mm lense that has a macro switch on it.....when i first got the camera i would always lock it on accident.....see if that's the problem.....

    haha okay thanks anyway for your help. I did pay for an extra warranty at Best Buy. I'm hoping that it'll cover fixing the lens. :?
