SOURCE: I have a FinePix Fuji

You don't say which camera model it is.
Probably an option to format it somewhere in the settings.
Switch it to the mode where you view/erase pictures and look for it there.
Sometimes you get option to erase1, erase all, format card.

SOURCE: have canon Powershot A75 3.2 Mega pixel camera .. Now it is having display issue. Once i open my camera lens come out power come but unable to see the image in lcd to shoot.. Can you assist

First try pressing the DISPLAY button. If that doesn't fix it then this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

SOURCE: its shutter is not opening

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Lens will not extend, gets LENS error


Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. To start with try to blow compressed air around the lens cover so that if there is any dirt it cleans if off. You can also stick a thin strip of paper between the lens shutter and the outer support ring & move it in a way that it clears the debris that's stuck in there. If still the issue is not resolved then you'll have to replace the lens assembly & lens mechanism to fix this issue. It is recommended to be done by a professional. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Try the video function.
If this works fine then it is most probably the shutter sticking.
To confirm the shutter is sticking turn the camera on, put the zoom to full optical and turn it to face you so you can see into the lens. Watch the inner part of the lens when you take a picture. You should see the shutter fire across the lens. Lines on pictures or over exposed pictures are caused by gaps in the shutter or the shutter failing to fire altogether.
Moisture residue on the shutter leafs is the common cause for this problem.
Some people on here have their own views about what causes lines on photo's. Someone even said digital cameras do not have a shutter and problems were due to software issues....
I have dealt with 100's of different models, including Fuji's E900 and always have found moisture residue to be the cause.

My F470 Fuji Fine Pix takes stripey pictures but when it is in movie mode it is fine


Your cameras shutter is sticking. lines on photo's or over exposed photo's are due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens.
Video is fine because it does not use the shutter.

The shutter will require cleaning.

The camera goes on but lens error appears on sscreen and the lens does not protrude out. shutter is half open


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

Lens error


Place the camera flat on its back on the kitchen table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

Lens cover jamming


Try blowing lots of compressed air around the open lens shutter to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds (don't want to heat up the camera). Also with the lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. A grain of sand in the mechanism is usually the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it.

You can open it up, but only as a very last resort. The above procedures usually work if you try them enough. But for those particularly nasty stuck mechanisms, here's an example repair on a Canon Powershot A400 (do this at your own risk, and it will void your warranty):
