Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Camera cuts out when using AC adapter

My S5000 is 4 years old already ~ how sad.....I always use a AC adapter for close-up pix of items I sell online ~ then transfer to a zipfile... Lately when taking the pix as I move the camera around it is shutting down. My husband replaced the tip on the adapter and I am still having problems....Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Maybe the pin inside the camera is loose or some internal component. Try batteries for a short time to make sure.

My camera won't turn on and the lens won't close


Perhaps you have bad batteries? Connect it to another power source such as an AC wall outlet and use your power adapter and see if this helps. If it does not or you have already tried this then your camera may need to be serviced.

I have a Canon Powershot A60. Has always worked well until recently my photos contain a green fluorescent like outline on some of the items in my picture.Looks like stalactites at times. Help!!


You've been pretty lucky. :)
I had an A75, loved it!
It lasted me about 4 years before I started to have problems. Sadly, at the time this wasn't publicised, so I wasn't aware of any free repairs.

Please take a look here, and see if there is a remedy available for your camera.
Canon issues advisory notice

It's old news, I know, but ... who knows ... eh?

Good luck.

How much is a 1991JVC RX-805V worth now in 2010


hello. Sadly, 20 year old electronics have little or no value. There is no warranty and often no repair parts available. If you are looking to sell this item, offer it for $10.00 or best offer. J.

I have a sony cibershot camera for over a year now, it has always worked nicely, up until a month ago, it suddenly wont turn on anymore. I,ve already charged and re-charged the battery but nothing...


make sure the batt is charging and working fine.check also the batt contacts.make sure its clean.insert batt to your camera.instead of pressing the power button, press the play button instead to power camera on. if unit turns on,might actually be an issue w/the camera unable to power on in camera mode.if it turns on initialize cam (p.75 of the manual).see if it works.if still wont turn on try using a diff batt (or if you have an optional ac adapter model#acls5k use it, attempt to power on cam to isolate issue w/power source).if batt or ac adaptor not available try to check batt with another cam if possible to test batt. if still unit doesnt turn on using a fully charged, diff batt, or using an ac adaptor,unit would reuire service. hope this info helps.thanks:)

Kodak Camera V610 easy share


Hi!
This is what I need you to try..
If you're using a 5v ac adapter to charge the camera's battery - please hook it to the camera WITHOUT THE BATTERY in it. The 5v ac adapter can be an alternative power supply.

Turn on the camera - check if it would do the same thing - like lighting up, making a noise (attempting to extend the lens) and closes. If it does, the camera needs to be sent in for repair.

visit www.kodak.com/go/itg to arrange repair

If you are using a photoframe dock2 or camera dock series 3 to recharge the camera's batt - use its 5v ac adapter. It will work with the cam. Make sure, the batt is not in it to check the cam's condition, isolating the possible interference of the battery.

If the camera works fine - when the AC adapter is attached, no battery in it - consider buying a new battery.

V610 is a very nice camera, but it was manufactured in 2006. If you have not replaced the battery yet, it might just need to be replaced. Even Li-ion rechargeable batteries wear out eventually - it can only last up to 300 charging cycles.

If you're using a batt that is less than a year old, the cam might just need to be sent in for service.

Fuji pine pix a600 will not power up.


Possibly not worth repairing.
You may have ruined the internal parts from over-voltage.
Any thing has a value to the owner, thus it is up to the owner as to how much he is willing to pay on repairs to fix the item. This applies to cameras of any kind, cars, houses, and so on.

I would suggest to look up the value that your camera has been selling for (on a site such as Ebay). How old is it? If it is over a couple years, the value may not outweigh the cost to repair. That will depend on the condition and other factors.

If the internal parts have been burned out, then the cost to replace a main board ,probably what you need, may be far more than what you want to pay. Since this is a 6.3 mpxl. camera, I would guess it is over two years old, and will not bring more than $100.00 if sold in good condition with all the things it had when new.
A suggestion is to sell this camera as parts on a site like Ebay, and get what you can. You may choose to sell all or just the camera.

Jack is broken on portable CD player


Mystical Chicken, all that needs to be done is to open up your player and re-flow the solder connection where the ac adapter goes. It is a fairly simple task, given you have used a soldering iron before. If not, just send it to me and I'll fix it.
