Tip & How-To about Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

Lens not retracting when you turn off the camera

I had this problem for a while and after sending it into the shop I was told that it was because of a small piece of sand that had been lodged between the lens and the camera... So I was told that it is a good idea to wipe down the entire lens mechanism after each use where it might get dusty or sandy. I'm sorry this doesn't fix the problem if you are already experiencing it but you can prevent it! If you do find that the lens isn't retracting try turning the camera back on and off if that doesn't work I recommend service...

If a small piece of the ingition key cylinder broke off and is now lodged deep in the key cylinder, how do I remove it for replacement? The key does not completely insert, since the piece is lodged in there.


you can remove the lock cylinder and try to knock the piece out. You need to turn the key to the on position and then insert a small pin in the hole on the side of the lock cylinder so you can pull out the lock cylinder. A large paper clip would work.

Freezer not freezing, and leaking


If this unit has an ice maker and you noticed water leaking into the refigerator, I had a similar problem. The water turn off valve for the ice maker had a small piece of sand or grit lodged in it and stopped the valve from closing properly. So it could not turn of completely and the valve became increasingly more sloppy as the piece of sand was wedged in further. The solution was to replace the samll valve. An easy job for someone a bit handy.

If the water has frozen in the bottom of the freezer compartment the colliing port for the cold air may also be affected. Don't chip the ice out of the bottom, defrost it with pans of hot water.

Hope this helps

Scuba Gauges cleaning


"It's probably sand, rinse it well in strong running water and it should be fine. I had a compass once get sand lodged in it and prevent it's rotation, a strong rinse fixed it. Sand can only get where water travels, so if sand got there you can rinse it out with water."

panasonic lumix lens go crazy...


Read my latest comment, it might be a fluke, but it's worth a try to unscrew it because it's not worth sending it back, and the only other thing you could do is sell it on ebay or craiglist for parts. Good Luck! MINE WORKS :)
