Re: Problem with F470 Fine pix camera
Sounds like the keypad ribbon has either popped out of it's socket or, and this would be the common fault, the ribbon has broken. In which case fuji will be your only way to fix and get it serviced at the same time. last quote I recieved was £80.
source a donor camera on ebay for the cheaper option

The Fuji FinePix F470 camera is an excellent device. Most of the controls are computerised in such a way that makes picture taking and viewing less stressful. Changing from shoot mode to playback mode is by the press of the play button which looks like an arrow the zoom lens is not manually adjustable it adjusts by the press of the W and T buttons.

Ribbon strip busted or come out of it's socket on the board. But I'd say the ribbon is busted because it has to be folded back on it's self to fit in it's socket. And it's a common problem with this model. Cheapest option is a donor camera off ebay for parts
Try turning the power on and gently pulling the lens outward as it powers up. This may force the gears to re-align themselves. Use "fingertip" pressure only. Don't force it excessively. Also try turning on, and then applying slight pressure to the front of the lens while you power it off. You can also try rotating the lens barrel segments while it powers up or shuts off. Sometimes either can get the lens back on track.
I used to get that error all the time with a earlier Fuji FinePix with the slide-over lens cover. If the cover wasn't pushed back completely, the lens would extend only so far and then give an error. Make sure that there's nothing (dirt, hair) on any of the lens surfaces and make sure the lens is fully extending when you do turn the zoom on. Don't let anything touch or bump the zoom while it's moving, either.
Not sure if this will help, since you have a different model. This is what worked for me, though.
