FinePix 1400 won't turn on, it beeps and shuts off immediatly
My finepix 1400 has fresh new batteries, it has a memory card in place. When I try to turn it on, it beeps and turns itself off. I can't find my usb cable for the camera, I wasn't trying to download pictures so it isn't exactly the same as a previously posted problem.
Is it toast?

Hello and welcome! The most common cause for a Lens error:
Misaligned Lens rings
Sand and grid wedged in between the lens and the barrel.
Dropping the camera
Ran down battery
The following solutions are there by which you may Fix the lens error
Firstly you can try removing the batteries and replacing it with a new set of fully charge ones
If the batteries ran down while you were taking photos with the lens extended, you might also get this error. Remove the the memory card and replace the batteries with a fresh recharged set. Try to power on the unit with the fresh set of batteries while the memory card is removed
Connect your camera to your computer using your USB DATA cable which came with the camera. Once the camera gets power in this mode, the screen should stay off, hence, supplying the lens with more power to push or pull out/in
Place the camera on a sturdy table with the lens pointing to the ceiling. With a fresh set of batteries installed(Do this without a memory card) hold down the shutter button while you power on the unit
Now, you can either use a compressed air canister to blow around the lens area. This will result in the sand or dust particles to be blown out of the area between the lens and the barrel. Or, you can use a vacuum and and carefully place the nozzle around the lens to out the particles

remove the batteries, let it sit for a week or so, then load fresh batteries and it will turn on. Apparantly the auto shut down feature prevent it from turn on until the internal memory is erased. This is a stupid problem that Fuji should fix
Check the memory card or battery door for the tab that activates the cut out switch. It ,or the switch, may have sustained damage. I'm not 100% on this model but if it's like the S5700/ S5800 models then the memory card door has a tab for the cut out switch to prevent card removal whist powered up.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
