SOURCE: wont turn on

Only use Ni-MH or AA-size alkaline batteries. Do not use Ni-Cd (nickel-cadmium) because the heat emitted can damage the camera.

I would suggest using e2 batteries from Energizer.

In the manual, on page 80 there is a description and procedure for discharging Ni-MH batteries (but NOT regular batteries, so don't do this with regular alkaline batteries) AND do not do this when the external power is connected.

Moving on... The discharging of the batteries procedure should happen when:

  • the batteries last for a short time after being charged normally
  • the batteries have not been used for a long period
  • the batteries are new.
Follow these instructions:
  1. Press the menu/OK button to display the menu on the LCD monitor
  2. Press the "left" or "right" on the pad to select "SET" OPTION and then press "up" or "down" to select "SET-UP".
  3. Press the "MENU/OK" button to dipslay the "SET-UP" screen.
  4. Press "right" or "left" to move to option 5 and then press "up" or "down" to select "DISCHARGE".
  5. Press "right"
  6. Press "left" or "right" to select "OK".
  7. Press the "MENU/OK" button.
The screen changes and discharging begins. When the battery level indicator blinks red and discharging ends, the camera turns off.

Remember to not have the camera external battery plugged in so the battery can discharge on it's own.

Then, at this point, recharge the battery using the external battery charger. This helps to "renew" the battery. This is because Ni-MH batteries will remember the last place where they recharged, and too many times, the memory "bookmark" gets marked to low and has to be reset, done by the recharge.

It may be necessary to repeat these steps multiple times. This effect is not because the batteries are deffective. This is a normal side-effect of Ni-MH. This is the reason the camera comes with a discharge feature.

I the batteries are old and don't function even after performing the discharge procedure as part of the normal operation of the camera (like of the year or two), then the batteries may have reached the end of their service life.

Hope this helps, if so, please rate FixYa! ThankYa!

SOURCE: Fuji finepix lenses

See my other post ref long/wide angle lenses.

Just check out ebay - look for fuji convertor lenses, a pair of basic Raynox long and wide angle lenses are about £100 although you can buy higher spec ones for significantly more. With Jessops going through hard times they tend to put these in their junk/clearance bins - I got my wide angle for £1.39 after waiting for about 3 weeks for it to drop in price. Check out when they are closing or clearing stock. Guess all high st retailers will be in the same boat wherever you are based at the moment so willing to sell-off slow moving stock.

SOURCE: I got a pink Fujifilm Finepix Z20fd and pictures won't download

You don't have to use the software that came with the Fujifilm. I have the same camera. If you're on a laptop that has a slot for SD cards, (if you have an SD card) you can just put your card straight into your computer and load the pictures that way. Also, if you have an SD card reader, you can use that. And if you're on a desktop without either of those options; once you plug your camera into your computer, go to your start menu and click 'My Computer,' then your camera should come up as a removable disk device in the folder. From there, you can drag and drop the pictures onto your desktop or your My Pictures folder.

When i turn on my fujifilm s5500 i cannot take any photos or view and photos, if i format the card on the camera it than says card full. Than if i turn the camera off and than on again it comes up with...


I downloaded a PDF manual for your camera to make sure what I was about to say was indeed correct. My first impression/thought about this problem is that your camera Firmware is not capable of that size a memory card. I looked into the card capacity and according to the PDF manual you camera takes an XD - Picture card the capacity on the original Firmware is for 512mb here is a chart.
XD Card Max covers the S5100 and S5500 models

You may be able to go onto the Fujifilm web site and actually update your firmware.

Another thing that came to mind is that these cameras are often "clock" dependent and if the camera batteries have been removed for some time the clock date and time may also be giving an error. However my first impression is that the memory card is to large in capacity.
