I had same problem. Found that doing a complete reset fixed it. Go into setup and at end there is a factory reset. If not working after that would suspect your ccd sensor is on way out. They should last 5-7 yrs. Be cheaper to get another cam with way prices have come down

We have lost the cord to download pictures off of our Fuji Fine Pix S5000 camera - where can we purchase this cord?


Go to a computer store or Radio Shack store and get a USB to camera cord. Take the camera with you to make sure the USB carmera jack fits your camera. These are pretty common cables. The cable should cost less than $6.00.

I have problems focusing my f8000sd fuji camera when zooming in on small things.IIf I try to zoom right in on a butterfly for example,it will not focus and I can't use macro and get closer in case it flies...


Use spot metering & focus when taking pictures of an object.
Set your camera to highest Megapixel setting, Only use max. optical zoom on the subject (do not use digital zoom) .U dont need to get close to object as you can edit/zoom/crop the picture using any photo software program afterwards .

STILL PICTURES NOT IN FOCUS


Sounds like camera shake. When you use the zoom you get more camera shake. Try taking pix without zoom and see if you still have blurred photos.

Use only optical zoom and use a tripod.

Problem with focusing on Fuji finepix S5000


I would say not because: The focus mechanism is a contrast detection and is built into the firmware/CCD of the camera. There is no focus benchmark that the camera can fall back on, ie. rangefinder type camera that knows infinity setting. Or more of a possibilty is that an internal lens has broken loose from a mount and the focus just gives up as it cannot attain a lock, like when youare too close to a subject. Either way it is a professional repair unless you want to dive in. Just get yourself a set of jewelers screwdrivers and another digital camera so you can take pictures of every phase of disassembly for refference. As a 3.2/6.4 camera, there are cameras out now that are more advanced and less expensive that a repair, which would more than likely be a flat rate of $150+ and you would still have an older camera. Kodak makes a very nice camera such as yours for under $200.

Fine pix fuji S5000


Motherboard is dead, and it costs much to take it to the repair shop. It doesn't pay off, for that amount of money you can buy a better camera. I'm trying to find a web shop and to check the price, so i could repair it myself, but had no luck finding it so far. Anyone?

Won't auto focus


The release button could be at fault. It is a 2 position switch, pressing halfway starts the AF sequence. It could be dirty or need replaced.
