are you using rechargable batterys or weak batterys. my fuji won't work unless I use a e^2 titanium batterys. they have lots of jam (3500's?). anyways when the picture or ccd goes to charge there isn't enough juice to fire and the cammera dies. or maybe there is junk on the connections and won't let enough volts through. rechargeables are bad becouse they don't have the volt output needed - 1.2v charged I beleive. the other batterys are expensive but they've been in my cammera for three months, or about 300 pictures.
hope that helps :)

SOURCE: Fuji FinePix S3100 will not turn on.

Sorry, no real solution. My friends have one that would not turn on and they left it without batteries for a month, then put the batteries in and it worked. Mine has failed and will not turn on. I have left the batteries out but nothing has miraculously fixed itself yet. May have to send it in to Fuji.

Hit the lens (smack it on you're leg); that seems to be the solution..........
But try cleaning the lens and the AF assistent first!!

SOURCE: Fuji FinePix F30 shutter problem: won't take pictures

Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All that is needed is the special screw driver for the F30 (easily purchased online, just google it: "screw driver for fuji f30" ) or bring it to your local watch/jewelry repair store and tell them to open it up for you.

We have two F30's and they both have been dropped, both did the same thing with the shutter button. But both were easily fixed. Always keep the camera in a safe place and away from kids, they are very sensitive devices. Use the wrist cord when taking photos.

Why wont my fujifilm finepix1300 take video

The finepix 1300 is an entry-level 1 megapixel camera that came out in 2000. It was never designed to be able to take videos. I think it's time to update your equipment to a nice, modern camera.

My fujifilm finepix s5000 SN 4FL37025

This is the classic symptom of a failed CCD sensor. The only fix is to have the sensor replaced, but as the camera is around six to seven years old now any repairs will not be cost effective and you will likely have trouble sourcing the parts as Fuji stopped making their 3MP sensor many years ago. New, old stock sensors may also have degraded to the point where they are either faulty straight out of the box, or will develop the same fault within a few months of being powered up.

Sorry, but your camera has reached the end of it's useful lifespan: five years is pretty good going for any digital camera and six to seven is really exceptional. Digital cameras simply do not last anywhere near as long as many of the film cameras which they replaced.

Your only real choice is to buy a replacement, but if all you need is a similar technical specification to your current model then there are plenty of cameras for less than £100 (around $175 in OzDosh) which will do at least as good a job as your present camera. Just don't expect a sub £100 camera to last anywhere near even five years though.

One other advantage of an update is that you'll finally be ditching the expensive and highly inferior xD memory cards which were basically repackaged and slightly tweaked SmartMedia cards. If you buy a new Fuji then you'll find that they all take SDHC cards now (back compatible with SD cards) although they often still accept xD cards as well.

Sorry I can't be more positive, but I hope that I've still helped you. All that I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

My finepix A825 has a problem where it seems to default to internal memory. After taking 3 or 4 pictures it states the internal memory is full. However, when I insert a memory card the camera doesn't...

Are you trying to format the card in the camera? That's the accepted way. Go into the setup menu and find an entry for "reset"...try that. Try removing the card and all the buttons...insert the card and then the battery..try it. Remove the card and erase the pictures the camera says are in the internal memory.

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.
