Thanks for your prompt reply. The problem has been solved!!!! I put in new batteries and the camera is functioning normally.!!!!!!! It seems the batteries in the camera were old ones and not fully charged. I think its safer to put in new batteries than to use recharged ones !!!!!!
Anyway, thank you once again and have a Happy Christmas.
Gratefully,
Ken

How do i upload pictures from finepix e550


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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Camera shuts down

Depressing my shutter button on my Fuji FinePix E550 causes it to turn off. When I turn it back on there is a no image message. Is it cheaper to buy a new camera than to have it fixed? Thanks for help


You just need new batteries. That's what the E550 does when the batteries get too low. Please get the latest rechargables. Many of the ordinary AA batteries won't last 50 pictures. Fuji also is rather poor telling you how to charge the rechargables. When the screen goes blue when you take a picture, you must use the camera's de=charging system before recharging--otherwise the rechargables will not take a full charge--that's what's likely happened to you!

Fuji e550


This sounds like there is an internal short which is draining the batteries as soon as you put them in. Were the cameras taken in from the cold to a warm room? that will cause internal condensation which can fry the interior. Clean out the battery compartment completely, be sure no metal is floating around in there, and be sure that you have the polarity of the batteries correct. If that doesn't help, send the camera back to Fuji if in warranty.

Factory default reversion


Sounds like you have a poor connection to the batteries. If you take the batteries out, the settings all revert. Clean off the metal pieces which connect to the batteries with a dry abrasive substance. Good luck.

Camera will playback but wont take pictures


I found that the e550 eats batteries very quickly if the memory card is full (or nearly so).  I have installed a 512MB XD card.
