Question about Fuji FinePix 4700 Zoom Digital Camera
I recently dropped my fuji finepix 4700 zoom. It now has the lenscap open with the lens stuck inside. When switched on I just get a warning that lens cap stuck. I love this camera but have been quoted £170 to send back to fuji for repair. Although I have just bought a reconditioned fuji, I would like to try to fix this problem with the old one.
The following blog outlines some other repair options for a lens error:

Having read a post from May 19th 2006 in which moderate shaking was suggested, I tried it and it worked. http://www.fixya.com/support/t103741-lens_cover_stuck Comment by David Cainer, posted on May 19, 2006 There must be something mystical about this website. No sooner had I logged the problem, when I picked up the camera and felt something click inside it. I shook it moderately vigorously and the lens cover opened.
