I recently bought a s2 pro, and it was working fine for a couple of days, but then all of sudden every time i took a photo a few seconds later the LCd screen would say "write error", i emailed the shop i bought it from and they said to format the card, done that and still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Re: Fuji S2 pro, LCD screen flashes up write error.
It could be a faulty memory card. Or maybe dirty contacts on the card itself. Try swapping cards with a friend or your local camera shop and see if it works then. Maked sure the card is correctly inserted too.
If the card formatted in the camera it should be OK. If it was corrupt it would show up during format.
I hope you didn't buy the card off Ebay through an Asian or Chinese dealer. They are conning people with half a gbyte card marked as one gbyte. Some of them are reworked so they show the full Gbyte but when you go to format them they crash when you try to use them.
Anyway it should be under warranty so ask for an exchange or even a different brand.

This is an old post but if you haven't found your solution yet here is the solution. The Fuji FinePix S2 Pro uses two sets of batteries one set located in the camera body grip and another set in the battery grip itself. If you are experiencing the problem you are then the batteries in the camera body are dead and need replacement. here is a diagram. Replacing
the batteries in the camera body require removing the grip. Diagram
the lithium batteries power the flash and some of the metering. But if they drop below a certain power, the camera dies.
The F33 error is probably the accidental movement of the aperture ring on the lense. If you get the error, check the aperture ring is set.
Try removing the lens, the memory card, and the lithium batteries. With freshly charged AA batteries, turn the camera on. If it comes on without the "err" message in that case, your problem lies with the memory card, the lens, or the lithium batteries. Turn off the camera and add these things until you encounter the problem again.
For a lens, check to make sure the electronic contacts are clean and that the lens gets fully twisted into place, and that if there is an aperture lock, that the aperture is set to the smallest possible aperture (22 or 16, usually).
For the memory card, reformat it elsewhere if it is causing problems. The Fuji S2 is notorious for being picky about memory cards.
Lithium batteries that are slightly run-down can cause all sorts of issues. Your S2 doesn't need to use lithium batteries, except for the built-in flash. You can add an extra AA battery pack to replace the lithium batteries, and that will improve the camera's reliability.
My S2 is on its second out of warranty CCD, and Fuji replaced both for free, the first was due to the same dead CCD as many has had, the second was due to the CCD being defective to the point of being off center and producing photos that had a very distinct leaning to the right, Fuji did not charge me for either CCD's, and if the tech said otherwise, if I where you, I would call them back and say you belong to many on line forums, and have read that Fuji is replacing them at no charge, its possible that the rep you talked to is unaware of this!
That is another point, make sure you talk to an actual camera tech, and not just a rep, the rep will probably give you the run around.
