Camera shuts down when I go to take pic mode

Hi I have a fuji s7000 It was working fine, then suddenly when I tried to take a pic, the camera just shuts down, the screen goes blank, the lens stays out. I can view pictures on the camera in play mode so no problems with the screen, I have replaced batteries. I have recently been on holiday, on the beach wondered if sand may have got in somewhere. not sure if it would cause this problem though.

Re: camera shuts down when I go to take pic mode

I had this problem too and discovered that when the slightest bit of pressure was put anywhere near the door where the memory card goes, it would shut the camera down. I taped the door shut and it never happened again. I'm going to have it fixed at some point, but this did the trick!

Re: camera shuts down when I go to take pic mode

Ahhhhh! I have the same problem occuring!! I cleaned all of the battery terminals and replaced the batteries, and STILL have this problem, although not as frequent. It always happens when I take the best pics, the image shows on the screen for a fraction of a second, and then the whole camera shuts off. Again, I can play back images with no problem. What's the deal here?? It's become so frustrating that I just want to throw the camera in the garbage. It has been such a good camera up until this point. PLEASE, someone help us here!!!

May sound naive to you, but sometimes, particularly in XD card, when it is not being read by a card reader or camera, just try to wipe it's Copper plates firmly with your thumb and try again. Repeat the process. It happened with me and i tried it accidently once, and it worked, and it has worked many times. Don't scratch the copper plates, just wipe with ur thumb. Hope it works for you too. Good Luck.

Hi. From past experience I would say that these symptoms suggest the early stages of CCD failure. It usually starts with lines etc as you describe and progresses into wavy, blurry pictures or partial pictures and eventually the ccd just goes black. If it is CCD failure, the camera will usually still work when viewing pics that are already on the card.

Try it with a different set of battery. It is possible that one of your battery is "dead" or close to it, and the camera shuts down.

You have to find the bad battery.

It worked for me.

FUJI FINEPIX S5000 - Screen purple in Camera mode - No picture

This is a chip problem... My FIRST S7000, had this problem, and I had it replaced by Fuji {out of warranty}, now today, the SECOND S7000 is doing the exact same thing!

Contact Fuji at their New Jersey offices for info on how to get your camera repaired.

Fuji fine pix s7000 flash not working

Check to see if the flash has been set to a lower power or underexposes via a +/- setting. If not, warranty repair unless the camera has been damaged.

Have you/can you try another card or try the card in another Fuji camera to establish where the fault lays - Camera or Card? Also contact customer support at Fuji.

I think I Had that problem too. mine also quite suddenly started showing low battery even on new ones... it seemed better with non-rechargeable types. Now the reason I'm on this site is as the lens doesn't open.

Card Error?

i think you have broken or bended any of the pin inside the card slot, and that is creating problem. Try looking in the card slot you may find any of the connector pin broken or bended. Try straighten the pin cautiously and may your machine start working .
