Question about Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera stuck at power on - says set date/time, but buttons don't respond.

Just a quick note to see whether any of you fine folks have run across / solved the following: After not using my camera for a few months, I fired it up, only to find that it shows the last picture I took, along with a dialog informing me that the date/time was not set. None of the buttons seem to work (ie. I can't make a choice to either set the date/time, or skip). The buttons do depress, they just seem to have no effect. The camera does this regardless of whether the memory card is in it or not. New batteries make no difference. Turning the camera on in Playback mode or Camera mode makes no difference. If anyone may have run across this issue or have an idea as to its eventual solution, I'd love to hear it. :)

98 Dodge Caravan keeps blowing the wiper fuse. Works for a few seconds then blows.

check for bare wires grounding out , wiper motor failure or wiper shafts seizing up and overloading the motor
using a bigger fuse will only result in the wiring harness burning out and possible fire in the car

My SB 700 shows temperature after few shuts and when it's twisted

From the SB 700 manual page b8:

v Notes on continuous fl ash photography • To prevent the SB-700 from overheating, allow it to cool down for at least 10 minutes after 15 times of continuous firing. • When continuous flash firing is repeated in quick succession, the internal safety function adjusts the recycling time by up to 15 seconds. If flash firing continues, the thermal cut-out indicator appears on the LCD and all operations are suspended. (0E-31) Allow it to cool down for several minutes to disable this function. • The conditions under which the internal safety function is activated differ depending on the temperature and the SB-700 flash output level. Operation B B-8 Slide the battery chamber cover open while pressing the battery chamber cover lock release. Insert the batteries following the [+] and [-] marks. Close the battery chamber cover. STEP 1 Inserting the batteries Operation B B-9 1.5 V alkaline AA battery 1.5 V lithium AA battery Rechargeable 1.2 V NiMH AA battery Suitable batteries When replacing batteries, use four fresh AA-type batteries of the same brand from any of the following types: • For minimum recycling time and number of flashes for each battery type, refer to "Specifications." (0H-27) • Alkaline battery performance may vary greatly depending on the manufacturer. • 1.5 V carbon-zinc AA batteries are not recommended. v Additional precautions regarding batteries • Read and follow battery warnings and cautions (0A-19 - A-22). • Be sure to read and follow the warnings for the battery on the section, "Notes on Batteries" (0H-9), before using the battery. • The recycling time can be longer when lithium AA batteries are used because they incorporate a function that suppresses the output current when heat is generated in the batteries.

Husqvarna 141 starts with choke and then cuts out

If the chainsaw has been used recently i would say It sounds like the screen filter inside the carburetor is dirty item # 507432582 or the metering diaphragm is dried out item # 530035165. Also check that the fuel lines are in good shape. If that doesn't solve your problem you should do a pressure and vacuum test to check the seals and gaskets.

Playback problem

I've encountered this exact problem a month ago, except cleaning the heads did not fix it. However, I was able to find an alternative solution...

After leaving my camera closed up in a drawer for a few weeks, I decided to take it out and leave it in the sun for 15 minutes, assuming that perhaps the gray bars were a result of moisture damage. The next day (Today, to be exact) I turned my camcorder on, and the gray bars have gone away from playback, as well as the reduced sound quallity it caused.

Flash: PCB Replacement v. New Bulb!?

I had the same issue. The flash is set to go off, the camera assumes it went off, (as the record metadata shows) but it doen't go off at all, and the piture is underexposed.

I bought the 100 page repair manual, which is ONLY a dissassemble/reassemble manual with NO diagnostics. (Got it on ebay) So I was atleast able to get to the capacitor and flash bulb. I saw 300V across the capacitor leads, and the same 300Volts across the flash bulb leads. SO I am assuming that there is a transistor or relay that drops to ground to fire the flash that isn't working, or the electronic signal to drive that isn't working.

It seems most people replace the entire flash circuit board(which is near the capacitor under the left hand side). But it seems Nikon only sells parts to it certified repair facilities.

Ugh.... Looks like I'm buying a SB-600, as this is the cheepest solution. Too bad, because the on-board flash is more than decent. I hope the SB-600 thrills me enough to change my mood. :)
