Question about Fuji FinePix S5200 / S5600 Digital Camera

Sluggish picture taking, unknown symbols on screen

My camera seems to be very sluggish. It's not the batteries. I never got a manual so I don't know what the symbols mean. When I turn the camera on there is an exclamation point and a hand that has a little symbol which would indicate the hand waving. How do I clear this up? What does it mean?

I just looked it up in my manual, and the exclamation mark with the waving hand means: 'There is a strong likelihood of camera shake because the shutter speed is slow.' The remedy to this is: 'Use flash photography. However, use a tripod for some scenes and modes.'

It sounds like you need to adjust your shutter speed. I'm no expert and I consult my manual often, so if you need any assistance doing this or anything else, feel free to ask.

I don't know how to use the lcd screen when taking pictures


Many cameras that have view finders do not support use of the LCD display to compose or frame a picture. This is generally to conserve battery life of the camera. Most of these cameras limit how long a picture is displayed on the screen to 10 or 15 seconds, immediately after taking for the very same reason.

The exception would be a camera that lacks a view finder - or has a menu item that allows the user to compose the picture on the LCD in addition to the viewfinder. Some manufacturers call this "live view". Check your camera manual to see if it is supported. If so, be sure to buy extra batteries!

I hope this helps & good luck!

Wont go to picture taking screen or playback menu


A lot of cameras seem to be having this issue (including myself). Eventually it got to a point where the camera doesn't even turn on properly anymore. Better take it back for repair, STAT before it ends up like mine :(

No Flash


Is there a symbol on the screen of a lightning bolt in a circle with a diagonal line going through it? If so, your flash is turned off. If not, maybe the pictures you're trying to take don't require flash. Do they seem to coming out ok?

My camera's screen is blank. It does not seem to view the scene. It takes black pictures.


Don you hear it function when you press the shutter? Does it start up in any way when you turn it on? Knowing whether or not it is an expensive camera or a more "point & shoot" would be helpful. Are they rechargeable batteries? It coud be as simple as your batteries (rechargeable) have worn out. If it is not the batteries, well, time for a new camera. Batteries are the only thing you can address, provided they are removeable.

Wont take a picture unless I turn off the flash


Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Pictures are dark, even when flash is being used


Press the FN button under the toggle on right side of LCD screen. You will see white balance on left. Toggle down to the "flash" symbol".  Should work a treat now. If not using flash go to FN again and raise ISO.(Don"t forget to go to Auto white balance again!!)
