Question about Fuji FinePix A203 Digital Camera
Hi, The lens cover on my Fuji Finepix will not open when camera is turned on. I have tried new batteries etc... but no good. If there is an obstruction there, can I correct it or will I have to send it for repair? Warranty is well out of date now. Thanks for any replies.

After the basics, try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

I have this company in the uk:
you could also have a look on ebay, just type in s1000fd lens cover and see what you come up with.

I've just bought this camera off ebay and after purchasing noticed that it was going to come without a lens cap. After a bit of searching i found this link - it's not an official fugi one but it says it's for this camera.
I can't find one in the UK though

I started having a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix F10 after about 3 1/2 years of problem-free use. Another poster had some really helpful advice which I thought I'd pass on. It seems there is an internal battery or capacitor which basically fails after a while, meaning date/time settings etc are lost when the battery is removed. (Some people claim this is a motherboard/chip problem instead - seems to be contentious!) So the camera is faulty, but the problem can be worked around.
The advice I found, which worked for my camera, was this:
- Turn off camera and leave off for approx 15 seconds before opening battery door.
- Change battery quickly (within a few seconds).
- Close battery door and leave camera off for approx 15 secs before turning back on.
This retained all settings when I tested it multiple times. I imagine it might not work if changing over a totally dead battery though.
Hope it helps!

The s7000 has three different display modes: Screen, viewfinder, and off. Screen is for looking at the big screen, viewfinder is for looking through the digital viewfinder, and off should turn off all the displays. Try pressing the DISP button once. That should reactivate the screen and make it possible to use the camera again.
