Our Fujifilm 2650 digital camera does not power up properly. When we push the power button, the lens may or may not be projected from the camera body. Additionally, the LCD does not fully illuminate and only lights to a "dim grey".
Any ideas as to what is happening?

"If the digital camera will not turn on, run through the "Checklist" given below.
If this does not solve the problem, take the camera, the batteries, and the AC Power Adapter to an authorized FUJIFILM service center for testing and repairs.
1. The direction of your battery might be wrong. Confirm it and put it again.
2. Load new or fully charged batteries.
3. The battery terminals may be dirty in a way that cannot be seen (fingerprints, etc.). Wipe the terminals clean with a soft cloth.
4. Press the Power button again firmly."
Cleaning the battery contacts sounds worth a try.
Fuji also say;
"Please use only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries with Fujifilm digital cameras
Please note that instruction manuals provided with Fujifilm digital cameras recommend that only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are used with those digital cameras which require AA or AAA type batteries. If other types of batteries are used together with an AC adaptor, this may result in the rare occurrence of the battery overheating. Please do not use batteries other than those recommended in our instruction manuals."
Check that the type of battery is correct
Did you buy the camera new? is it still under warranty?
Here is the link to the support page for the s7000 including manuals, repair centre details etc;
or direct to the manual;
Apart from contacting Fuji for service, the only suggestion I could find in the manual was that the battery cover may not be closing fully. Worth checking.
Hope this helps :)
You forgot to pull out after the lens was pushed in on the side. That mistake makes it very expensive to fix. If you buy the same parts camera with a bad lcd on ebay. You can have your good lcd replaced on the ebay parts camera. Replacing lcd is an easier job.
Unfortunately it sounds like there is damage to the lens which is only fixable by replacing the lens assembly.
The labor involved plus the price of a used lens (a new one would only be possibly be available through Fuji directly if they will still repair the camera) would be far more than the value of the camera.
You can probably buy a used one on 3b@y for $30. (They don't pay me so I don't type their name)
The lens is having a hard time retracting out that is why it is giving you that error. Make sure that your battery is fully charged and if it is, but still does not do any good, then do this little trick:
1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.
2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.
are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the
sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.
The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!
