    I have the same problem where the camera turns off when hitting the shoot button. Checked a couple things; replaced batteries and bought a ac adapter. New batteries does not resolve the issue. To some extint the ac adaptor fixes a minor problem, it will let me take pictures and function well while it is plugged in, however it does not charge the camera. Power shortage?

Replace your Batteries. Low power supply is the only Problem. turn off the Flash. again check. If it is working, Problem only with Batteries.

I have a FUJIFILM Finepix S1500 digital camera and I love it! But i find it hard to use the macro settings and how to get really clear shots! Any help? :)


Macro photography usually requires a steady camera. This means you need a tripod for really clear shots and you need to be within the distance range as outlined in the owner's manual.

Camera - Fujifilm Finepix A500. The screen goes blank when taking a picture. It does not take the picture and although the screen goes blank and only comes on again when the power button is pushed the lens...


What worked for me with the same problem is to reformat your internal memory and/or picture card. First, download all your pictures saved from your camera to your computer, since the reformat will wipe them off the camera memory. Next, follow the instructions on page 75 of your manual. If you don't have it anymore, you can download it:

Hope this works for you.

My Fujifilm finepix A500 camera will not download it's photos. It was fine until a couple of weeks ago. I have tried downloading a driver fro their website but makes no difference. Help!


Consider NOT using a driver.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Can't get my computer (win xp) to detect my finepix camera


Sounds like there is no connection between your camera and your pc.
Try another USB port on your PC.
You actually do not require a driver for XP.
XP will automatically detect the camera. SP2 + 3
If all fails, get a card reader.

Fuji USA does not offer the Finepix software as a free item on their website. The upgrades can be downloaded though. Here is the driver link for the A500:

The United Kingdom site has the drivers for the A510:
