Question about Fuji FinePix F401 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fuji Finepix F410 compact loss of images

I took about 300 photos on the 256Mb XD card which left space for 14 more shots. On returning from holiday I put the card back in the camera and the LCD screen says 'No images' when in photo view mode. The strange thing is that if you then select 'shooting' mode it says there is space for 14 shots. Surely if the screen says there is space for only 14 on a 256Mb card there must be the remaining 300 images still in there, somewhere !!! Now, this may be just coincidence, but throughout this holiday the 3 blue LED lights on the front slide swith of the camera did not work. They should illuminate during battery recharging & timer mode. However the battery does recharge OK. Does anyoue have any ideas please what I can try. Thank you, Vinnie.

Re: Fuji Finepix F410 compact loss of images

I have a blue LED problem too....One day the F401 was in its cradle with lights working all right. Next day they were not working. I tried removing and replacing the battery, I also borrowed a cradle, usb cable and mains adapter - but still no LEDS. However, the images upload to the PC as usual, the self timer works, the camera continues to take perfectly good pictures and, as far as I know, the battery is being charged. Any advice/comment will be appreciated if it helps to overcome this problem.

Incidentally, this latest malfunction is a bit annoying since the camera has already had a major CCD fault. I appreciate that digital cameras rely on microelectronics, but it does seem a bit 'throw-away' when you are told by the Fuji technical people that the cost of a possible repair is more than the current worth of the camera.

I have two conventional SLR (Konica TC Autoreflex and a Nikon 601S) both of whcih are working perfectly despite being 27 and 9 years old respectively. So much for progress, eh?!

Fuji FinePix Z2 Digital Camera

lens retracts fully into the body and is protected by an automatic metal cover - no more lost or dangling lens caps.
The F410 Zoom makes use of the new xD-Picture Card media that is smaller than a postage stamp. Fuji supplies a 16MB card and they are available now up to 256MB. The F410 is powered by a small proprietary lithium rechargeable battery. This battery pack performed well in our use and if the color LCD is used sparingly, I see no problem with the battery delivering enough power for a conservative day's use. As with any camera that uses a proprietary battery pack, it is always a good idea to purchase and carry a charged spare at all times. The included power supply / charger is an auto switch type and operates on 100-240V AC which is convenient when traveling. It charges the battery in 3 hours (or less) while in the camera and also functions as an AC power supply for extended use at home. The battery is also charged any time the camera is placed in the optional camera dock.

I have purchased a 2GB XD memory card for my FinePix A330 camera. My camera is showing "Card not Initialized". Can you please inform me of the procedure I need to follow to initialize. Thanks

Your problem is that your camera is totally incapable of formatting an xD card of that large a capacity. You have an older 3.3 megapixel model designed when the maximum xD capacity planned was 512MB and the largest capacity available was 256MB.

Your camera will work with a maximum 512MB xD card but cannot use larger capacities. 512MB should be plenty though as on the fine setting it allows you to store about 330 images and on the normal setting it's 665 images. On the two video resolutions it's about 53.5 minutes and 182.5 minutes although on the lower resolution the battery would run out long before 3 hours!

There are no firmware updates to extend the capacity as it's a hardware limitation in the camera itself. Even if it could handle larger capacities then the camera would become very sluggish in operation. There's even a noticeable slowdown in camera response when using 512MB cards, so I recommend that you stick to a maximum of 256MB (you can always carry extra xD cards with you if you want additional capacity).

If you would like a free download of your camera user manual then click here for one from the Fuji website.

You only have two fixes: replace the xD card with a maximum 512MB capacity (preferably 256MB), or replace your camera with one of the recent models which accepts the 2GB xD card.

I hope that I have provided you with a clear explanation and practical options to fix your problem. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

Blue screen

You should check the settings to see which type of memory card you are using, xD versus Compact Flash. The default xD card that the camera comes with is very small and may not support saving the size of image you're trying to capture. If you are using a card with enough memory the card itself might be defective..

Retrieving images off fuji xd card

A clearer indication of missing images would be useful - how do they know the images are 'missing' have they seen them previously from the card?
If images have been deleted- accidentally then that's another story
Download PC-Inspector from the web
This is a free image /data retrieval program for such situations.

Card problem

It is possible that the largest card this camera will accept is 256MB. Check your manual to be certain.
At 3.2MP this will store up to almost 300 images so it should be of ample size.
Regarding the next question, I don't believe it is possible to lock an Xd memory card. The writhe error is likely due to the above or damage to the card or the card port on the camera.

Digital camera faulty

The Dark LCD can mean the backlight has gone down- no repair option here. or A connector to the board has come adrift- Are you sure there are no images being made - have tried? As a try take the camera firmly in your paw and squeeze or flex the casing at the base of the screen area.-This is where the connectors are You make get a re connection. Also tell Fuji Tech Support about this
