Set date and time and camera should work. If camera asks to have date set everytime you take batteries out then the memory 3 volt battery is flat ... replace.

Forgot to set time and date when i turned camera on

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

If you have forgotten to set date and time then you can also set date and time after turned on the camera. to set date and time follow the given instructions:
  • Press the Menu button on the rear of the device, then choose Set with left or right button, Then go to Setup menu.
  • Select Option followed by time icon. This brings up the date display. The display blinks as it has not yet been set.
  • With the help of Right or left buttons select Year, Month, Day,Hour or Minute. Then press Menu/Ok button after the settings completed. Now every picture captured with the Fujifilm FinePix F460 will save the date and time to the pictures
I hope this solution helps you
For further assistance, I am here to help.

Says date/time not set but wont let me set the time or date!

Broken keypad ribbon. It's because the keypad ribbon is folded over twice and the creases split over time. have a look at my tips page for this problem. It won't help you much I know and the only solution is a replacement membrane.

I have new batteries in my S5000 but do not get an image on lcd

On the back there should be a small button above and to the right of the LCD screen that says EVF/LCD. You might try pressing it to change it, this is provided you can see through the viewfinder already.

How do I set the date on a fuji finepix 5200

take the batteries out and put them back in. the back screen will say setup, push in the menu button and it will display the date, after doing it, click it up once for it to read month day year, it is default for the opposite.
I can't find how to have it display that in the photos though and I have the manual.

Camera turns on but it does nothing.

The ribbon cable for the buttons has either come out of its socket because it was not locked down (does happen) or it is broken and will need to be replaced. Fuji will not send out spare parts but will fix it for a price. Last quote I got from fuji to fix the keypad ribbon on an F470 was £80. check ebay for donor camera

Fuji FinePix S5000 - Display has turned pink!

4/8/08 FOR ALL CCD SENSOR'S MFG by Sony: Found the answer. Sony Repair service is fixing for free any CCD sensor problems on "any" camera that had a "Sony Manufactured CCD sensor". I have now called the service center and they sent me a UPS Return label so I can send my camera in for "free" repair. This is good news!!! I can't remember the site I was on but they listed all brands that had the Sony mfg. CCD sensors in them. So call the Sony Repair Center to find out if your camera has the Sony CCD sensor in it. This was an error in the manufacturing process and they are standing good for this.

Above the screen display on the back of the camera are two small buttons. The left one is blue and the right one is marked EVF/LCD.

Push the right side button to change from the viewfinder to the screen.
