I have a crapped out unit (PCB Board $250.00 part!!!! + labour) that I am either going to sell for parts (complete with all accessories that came with it), or try to find a broken unit that I can steel the PCB board from. Let me know what you end up doing with it.
I am in Calgary, Alberta,Canada.
Thanks,

Time for some "tough love"...suggest you buy one of the new Pentax point-and-shoots that are especially made for people who continually drop their cameras. This one can be dropped from 3 feet and still work. Leave the good DSLRs to the rest of us.

Zoom lens is stuck on my camera


Hey, my husband just fixed it! You just wiggle/bend the zoom lens, and you feel a "pop", and then the zoom retracts and you're fine! I was afraid to "break" it, but someone on vacation had the same problem and told him this solution a few weeks ago. So don't be afraid to use a little force-at least, in our case, it worked! Good luck.

Fuji 4700 zoom


there is some chance that it's not getting power for the shutter release. Either becuase of some internal error on the switch, the circuit isn't closed, or that the batteries aren't performing. Unless you're tired of this camera, you could try with new, maybe borrowed, NiMH bats. Good luck
