Question about Fuji FinePix F470 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera lens does not retract & view finder is just blue, will not go to other screens

I was using the f470 when the screen went blank and the lens would not retract. I tried turning it on with no results. I charged the battery and tried to turn it on, the fine pix logo came up then it went to a blue screen. I was afraid that the pictures would be lost, so, I plugged it into my computer and the screen came up with the hooked up to the p.c. I was able to down load the pictures. I disconnected form the computer and the screen went back to blue. The camera will not turn off either.

    My camera lens won't retract

    My problem is exactly the same as Haake's. The lens will not retract. The logo comes up momentarily and then goes "blank". I was able to get my pics off the memory card but have not been able to take new pictures since this happened. I am wondering if this is fixable at a decent cost.

    I have the same problem, also with a reoccuring Zoom Error when the camera does actually turn on.



    It also makes strange buzzing sounds every now and again when turned on and off

The lens maybe out of track. Perhaps you have bumped the camera or dropped it. Look if the lens are a bit tilted, if so, try straighten the lens with your fingers, very gently. Hope it works.

I was using my camera and the viewing screen went blank. The battery is fine, there is power... you can see info on the small view finder but nothing on the screen


hello,
You may have accidentally pressed the DISP button on the back of the camera.
This turn the screen off/on.
Try preesing this button when the camera is on
I believe this button is the up button on the back
Hope this helps

You have over exposed pictures due to the shutter sticking.
The video is the clue to the problem. It doesn't use the shutter.
Shutter needs to be cleaned. This is no easy task im afraid

Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.
