I cannot solve the problem, but will say that in searching for a solution to my problem, I read in the manual that if you are not going to use the camera for a while, to take the batteries out. This is probably why you now have a malfunction. I sympathise - only now do I know this myself, having not referred to the manual very much in the past eight busy years. Sorry for your loss.

Ps sorted manual downloaded free from fuji uk

problem still persists after being sent to fuji they informed me repair costs would be £389 and thats it no breakdown of what the problem is just

FAULT

great service NOT.

so they think i would pay £389 for an 8 years old superseded many times s1 pro against the cost of fuji's latest s5 pro being less than £450.

I get an err messasge when the camera is turned on.Also I would be interested in a service for the camera. How to get it to you, and how long for return, and cost? David Plessas


If "Err" is displayed on the LCD panel on the top of the camera when the "MENU/EXE" button on the FinePix S1 Pro is pressed, check the following:


<If "Err" is not flashing>

1. If the slot cover is open, switch the camera off, close the slot cover and switch the camera back on.

2. If the remaining charge in the AA-size batteries is low, switch the camera off, replace the batteries and switch the camera back on.

3. If steps 1 and 2 above do not remedy the problem, contact the store where you purchased the camera or your nearest authorized FUJIFILM repair center.


<If "Err" is flashing>

1. Pictures cannot be taken because the remaining charge in the lithium batteries is too low or because the camera mechanism has stopped operating due to the camera being used in cold conditions.

In this event, switch the camera off, replace the batteries and then switch the camera back on. If replacing the batteries does not resolve the problem, set the focusing mode to "M" and release the shutter before switching the camera off briefly.

2. If step 1 above does not resolve the problem, contact the store where you purchased the camera or your nearest authorized FUJIFILM dealer.

Hi, using my new ac mains adapter, the camera does not work, shows err in the top display screen, if you try to take an exposure the camera clicks, any help would be appriciated


Is it an original Fuji part, your new AC adapter?
It sound like it's not powerfull enough. The ERR error is normally related to low batteries.

Fuji s1, when I power up I get "Err" message on top LCD screen. Batteries are all freshly new.


"Err" message relates to the batteries.
If constantly lit, It's the AA batteries. When flashing, it's the lithium batteries. It can also be the tiny switch in the media door. Try activating it gently with a pointy object to see if the message disappears.

Err..message from top displays on my FujiFilm FinePix S1Pro


This problem is caused by the plastic memory card door.

There is a door that hides the memory card on the back of the camera.

The door has a small plastic part on the left side that when the door is closed fits inside the camera.

When the door is open this part is exposed. It is right next to the "^" in "^ PUSH TO EJECT"

If you place one drop of superglue on the top of this little plastic part of the door(when open) and let it dry overnight(LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN OVERNIGHT.)

This will slightly build the plastic up about .05-1mm.

The problem is caused by the plastic part being about 1mm too small, liking resulting from normal wear.

I have tested this, and it seems to have resolved my issue with the S1 Pro I bought on e-bay

I strongly recommend you use a memory card reader to solve this problem.

The cause is likely a bad USB cable, USB port on the Camera, or low battery.

A USB memory card reader will work around any of those causes.

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! =]
