Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

1 Answer


Ive been using the s500 now for about 4 years but all of a sudden now im not getting many pictures from the camera when the battery light comes on and shuts me down, but the strange thing is no matter how many different batteries i try it just seems to drain the life out of 1 battery and when i change the whole set i have to reset the time abd date, which i didnt have to do before, so i was wondering if there is an internal battery inside the camera that might need changing

Old motors and mechanism is eating too much power, thats what you will expect after three or more years using your unit. Digital cameras lasts for about three years working in good condition, after that expect your head to turn using that cam.

Fuji Finepix F30 Suddenly takes only all pink screens (no image)

This sounds like one of two problems -
Either an LCD screen problem or a bad CCD sensor.
A LCD screen problem would indicate one of two of the following - it was cracked, or the cable inside is either damaged or moved out of the plug and need to be reseated.

A bad CCD sensor would show a pink screen on cameras, but would also show menus on the screen as well, do you see those? The CCD basically captures the image the lens is seeing and translates it to an image the camera can save. Generally the CCD can not be replaced separately from the lens and will require an entire lens assembly for repair.

I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

Cant upload photo from my digital camera to my computer

There is probably software that came with your camera that you can install for automatic reading --if so you need to visit their webpage to see if a driver update is available before you use it.

Otherwise you can do it manually by hooking up your camera or reader and opening My Computer -- look for an added drive, that will be your photos. Open it and you can save to your hard drive.

Hello guys fuji film s1 pro problem

From the Fuji S1 Manual:

F-- (Flashing) or (lit in M Mode)

The lens mounted is not a Nikkor lens with built-in CPU or no lens is mounted on the camera.

Use a Nikkor lens with built-in CPU (excluding IX Nikkor lenes). (Note that pictures can still be taken in M mode.)
