Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Fuji E550 I have same problem for over a year, since the camera is so old, not worth repairing? Did Fuji give any iscount for buying another Fuji camera? Thanks. ( I just kept thinking that I was the problem) outdoor photo's which are continually overexposed no matter what combination I try to solve the bright light issue. After about 250 photo's some began to have lines, striations like finger prints once the images were transferred to the computer or taken to a Kiosk for development. They look fine on the LCD screen.

BILL,

No, Fuji did not give a discount on my replacement camera, but i believe i found it on sale somewhere for less than I paid for the same model the year before..looking at my Fuji Finepix A500 (#2) here at the desk as I'm typing this.. 2 years old and no problems... $149.00..........

I believe the problem with the first camera was due to an over exposure to sand and salt air during a two week vacation in Florida... The lines started the last night there.... its death was noted by the lens failing to retract fully when turned off... then no movement at all...... hope this helped..... buy one that takes decent pictures, inexpensive, keep it clean, and just replace it if it breaks!!!!!

My fuji E550 lets me view pictures but WIL NOT LET ME TAKE THEM! help would be very very appreciated


This is most likely an issue with the camera's image sensor. Your camera will need to be repaired by an authorized Fujifilm service center. Contact Fuji though as sometimes they have service advisories for issues such as this.

I was recently given the FinePix E550 by someone who had purchased a newer camera. I do not have the usb cord to download pix and my Dell 942 All-in-One will not recognize the camera card. What do I need...


Hi

The problem you are experiencing with your Fuji FinePix E550 could be down to a number of reasons.

You do not say the memory card size you are using but the Dell 942 will probably only read cards xD-Picture Cards 1Gb or lower.

It maybe a better idea to remove the xD card from the camera and use a USB card reader to take the images off the card. Alternatively you could buy a replacement USB cable

Hope the suggestions help.

Can the BC-NH01 battery charger also charge AAA


In reality, yes. The AAA batteries are to short for the charger, so some fiddling is required. I'd recommend you buy a suitable multicharger instead.

Theres a small back-up battery located on the main

Pictures have distorted coloration


This has happened with a few cameras that I have had in for repair and removing the optical sensor ribbon from its socket and then fitting it back in has worked about 80% of the time.

Fuji E550 Date


Not in the camera. The Fuji Frontier lab equipment can do it for you. Ask at the shop. You can also add to the image in software, but it's time-consuming.

Can't take picture


I'M NOT AN EXPERT BUT CURRENTLY ON MY THIRD FUJI CAMERA. THE "FINE PIX" CAMERAS TAKE FANTASTIC PHOTOS BUT ARE DELICATE IN SOME WAYS BUT FOR THE PRICE THEY ARE HARD TO BEAT. MY FIRST A500 HAD THE SAME PROBLEM FROM THE SAME EXACT CIRCUMSTANCES.... TALKED TO 2 DIFFERENT CAMERA REPAIR SPECIALISTS AND TO THE AUTHORIZED FUJI REPAIR CENTER...... ESTIMATES FOR INDEPENDENT REPAIR AND FROM AUTH. FUJI CENTER RAN ABOUT DOUBLE THE COST OF A NEW UNIT... BEST ADVISE IS TO START SEARCHING "BEST BUY" OR "CIRCUIT CITY" ON-LINE SPECIALS/ CLEARENCE

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!

Reversion to defaault settings


I read that if you hold the memory button down it resets the camera to factory settings. Could you be doing this inadvertently? Probably not your answer, but it's worth a shot?

Overexposure and vertical lines


My E550 started producing over exposed frames (everythings white except maybe across top) with lines.This just happens outside.On inside the pictures are great.
