Question about Fuji FinePix A205 Digital Camera

Open Question

No display, will not take photos

The camera will come on but it does not have a display and will not take pictures. while trying to take pictures the camera did take video. Did not know that the video was taken until I put my pictures on my computer and saw that the video was there. the camera is a fujifilm finepix A210. without the display you also do not have a menu reading which makes it almost impossible to trouble shoot. The only thing you can do is push the buttons which does not seam to respond.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. However, this advisory repair is currently limited to the US. Please check the following two links for more info:

SOURCE: READ ERROR

I would try another card with the camera to see if there is a fault in your camera or the USB cable. If the other card works fine, then there nay be some compatibility issues with the M type XD card in your camera. Just for reference: I have several older FujiFilm digital cameras that I still will not use the newer style cards with. Newer meaning the 'M' and 'H' series cards. Fuji says they will work fine, but I'm always leery of newer techno gear being 100% compatible with older stuff.

You don't have to use the software that came with the Fujifilm. I have the same camera. If you're on a laptop that has a slot for SD cards, (if you have an SD card) you can just put your card straight into your computer and load the pictures that way. Also, if you have an SD card reader, you can use that. And if you're on a desktop without either of those options; once you plug your camera into your computer, go to your start menu and click 'My Computer,' then your camera should come up as a removable disk device in the folder. From there, you can drag and drop the pictures onto your desktop or your My Pictures folder.

Try these:
1) Make sure the lens cap is off. When the camera fires up, if it feels any resistance, it will stop zooming and tell you "zoom error"
2) Recharge or fit new batteries. Use 2700 power if you can get them.
3)Is there a bit of dirt between the zoom part and the camera body? I had this problem after my camera had been in my overcoat pocket. I cleared it out with a stiff artist's brush. Do NOT use WD 40 or similar, as I found to my cost on another camera. It eventually seeped through to the works and made all the pics cloudy!
4) Hold the camera body in one hand and gently wiggle the zoom part from side to side and up to down.You will hear a quiet click in the mechanism.
I have used my S1000fd lots now, and the initial "zoom error" problems have stopped.
It's a fine little camera, I especially like the 12x zoom and the live histogram. Mine has taught me lots about photography.

This is the classic symptom of a failed CCD sensor. The only fix is to have the sensor replaced, but as the camera is around six to seven years old now any repairs will not be cost effective and you will likely have trouble sourcing the parts as Fuji stopped making their 3MP sensor many years ago. New, old stock sensors may also have degraded to the point where they are either faulty straight out of the box, or will develop the same fault within a few months of being powered up.

Sorry, but your camera has reached the end of it's useful lifespan: five years is pretty good going for any digital camera and six to seven is really exceptional. Digital cameras simply do not last anywhere near as long as many of the film cameras which they replaced.

Your only real choice is to buy a replacement, but if all you need is a similar technical specification to your current model then there are plenty of cameras for less than £100 (around $175 in OzDosh) which will do at least as good a job as your present camera. Just don't expect a sub £100 camera to last anywhere near even five years though.

One other advantage of an update is that you'll finally be ditching the expensive and highly inferior xD memory cards which were basically repackaged and slightly tweaked SmartMedia cards. If you buy a new Fuji then you'll find that they all take SDHC cards now (back compatible with SD cards) although they often still accept xD cards as well.

Sorry I can't be more positive, but I hope that I've still helped you. All that I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

LCD Screen


Your camera is working exactly as SLRs have worked for the first half-century since their invention. You frame the picture through the viewfinder then take the shot. The display is for menu settings and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Newer DSLRs will let you use the display for picture-taking (and take videos) but the A200 belongs to the previous generation.

My camera says no file exists what does that mean


You'll hate me for saying this.

In camera-speak, a file is either a picture or a video.
If "my camera says no file exists" that's exactly what it means.
It means there are no pictures nor videos the camera can display/playback.

Is that a problem?
It is a problem if you took a bunch of pictures and videos, and when you try to see them you get that message.

Otherwise, it means the memory or memory card is empty. No problem.

Try hitting the display button(the small TV resembling icon in the bottom right of the camera). You may have accidentally pressed it while using your camera and caused it to turn off your display.

Camera switching on ok but lcd sceen blank


Your problem can be the result of a number of causes - two common ones I will list here.
Most common cause would be a failed printed connecting cable between the main camera electronics and the flip out display panel. This special cable passes through the display hinge and is sometimes subject to failure.
A second possibility is a faulty display backlight.
You can check that the camera is still producing video output by using the AV cables conected to a TV display with the camera set to CAMERA mode.
I trust that this information is of assistance. RHN

Video downloads, but no picture, just sound


Your computer cannot decode MPEG-4 video format. Try to play it in Windows Media Player (this should find and install required codec automatically if connected to internet) or install Kodak Easyshare Software CD (supplied with camera) - should install required video codecs too. You can try to download and install codecs on your own from here.
