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. BMW

My fuji finepix S2 pro camera can not turn on when i put 2 cr batteries into its grip, when i remove 2 cr batteries it's turn on and work but i can't using flash, error no cr batteries found. Please show...

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.

I bought a 4 gig CF card for my fuji S2, and when I intiailize the card, I get a "card error". Is my card bad, or will my camera not support such a high gig card? 1 gig cards work fine.

From administrative tools in the control panel on a pc,you can format a 4 gig card to fat (not fat32) in the disk management window. It works fine in my Fuji s2.

Weird colors in viewfinder

Sounds to me like a CCD problem, which is a bad thing. CCD faults were quite common in the early S2's. It would be worth contacting Fuji about.

can you insert a few images into the thread to have a look at. Need more than one to check consistency of problem.

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.

Err message on my S2 Pro

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.

Ensure the batteries are the correct kind and chemical makeup (yes it does make a difference!)
try using lithium or alkaline as oppose to standard =]

Otherwise there may be an issue with the camera itself, check for warranty? if it isnt under warranty, document the error message/number, consult the manual AND the support site for the manufacturer.

good luck! =]

Before the heart attack, check your lens. I believe its the D series lenses that need to be set to all the way open. I get this "err" alot, and then look down to see that Ive rotated the appature.

No picture

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.

LCD cover on S2

I've had my pre-owned s2 for over a year and have had no problem. Also, I've seen them sold on Ebay.
