Question about Fuji FinePix A700 Digital Camera

Camera never powers on.

My camera seems to never power on, and the the lens is constantly out. Changed the batteries.........no joy, and plugged it into the computer, and again still no power. Got some really important pictures on the camera and would be distraught if i couldn't receive them. Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated!

Regarding the pictures on the camera, you just need to pull out the memory card and downloaded them to your computer by using another camera (which has the same type of memory card) Good luck !

Here is the link to the user manual; http://www.fujifilm.co.uk/technical/download/FX%20A700_E.pdf check page 108 of the pdf file - they suggest it could be because the battery cover is not securely closed - possibly the same could happen if the battery cover was slightly damaged also. The other suggestion is that the batteries could be inserted the wrong way round - unlikely but check to be absolutely sure (page 15 of the manual). Hope this helps; that's all i can think of for now but please ask again if you get no luck with that :)

    If the lens is actually mechanically stuck in the "out" position, there is the possibility that the camera will not power on - although usually it would power on and then off rather than nothing at all.

    Usually if the lens assembly is stuck, it is because of damaged mechanical components (usually accompanied by noise and reports of having dropped the camera), grit or sand in the mechanism, powering on by accident while in a case or lots of use in extreme heat or humidity.

    The best thing to do is take it to a service centre - post back with your general location and we can find one for you if you like. One possible quick fix to try is to free the mechanism by vibrating the camera. Put it on a towel on top of the washing machine, or take it for a drive (depends on how much vibration your vehicle produces). A few minutes should be more than enough if it is going to work - usually a few seconds. try to power the camera on while it is vibrating.

    If this works, there is still the cause of the problem inside, so the problem will most likely happen again.

    If this doesn't work, then a few gentle slaps may get things moving. Best not to try and force the lens in, although trying to gently pull it outwards may help.

    Hope this helps, ask again if you need service details :)

Changed batteries in a coolpix l110 and cant get anything to work. No power and lens wont retract. tried everything in manual thus far with no results.


What type of battery did you use with your camera? Is the type your L110 support? Seems your camera use AA batteries, but not all of the AA battery which can put into your camera is OK. many cameras only support Li-ion battery or Alkaline batteries

Camera lens is stuck in . Changed the batteries, light goes on but lens starts to come out only a fraction and stops.


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

My camera sony cyber-shot dsc-h2 does not switch on when the button is pressed. please suggest solution


I had the same problem.
In another post on this site I read that a stuck lens or bad batteries can cause this. My batteries were OK and it seemed as if the motor or lens gear was stuck.
The shutter could still be opened and closed by pushing power while the lens cap button was either pressed or released.
As I could not move the lens and some soft "shocks" did not release it, I once again disassembled the whole camera. (5th time the last two days...)

Note that for my camera there seems to be some protection mode being activated after a few unsuccessful tries to power up the camera with the lens cap removed.
After this protection was active it was not possible anymore to even display anything until disassembling the camera and pulling some of those internal plugs.

After having removed the lens with moter (without the circuit boardss attached) I used an external DC laboratory power supply set to 2V DC (and with current limitation activated) to directly power the lens motor at its two soldering points at the backside.
First it did not work at all, but maybe because of bad contacts.
But then I managed to let the lens move in and out by reversing polarity of the 2V.
After a few times the lens seemed to move much smoother.
With the lens still out I carefully re-assembled the camera again.
Now everything works fine again.

If you do not have a DC power supply you might be able to put the two batteries in series and apply that voltage to the motor.
Do not use a larger DC voltage than retrieved by those two batteries... or you might damage the motor or lens or...
I am not responsible if you damage your camera...

Be careful with the cables and note that a part of most of the small connectors can be carefully lifted upwards at the end to release the cables !

Maybe this helps to reactivate more of those stuck cameras.
Good luck !

Fuji F10 No power


You said that you changed the battery, did you put it in the right way around?.

I had exactly the same trouble, changed the battery (got it on ebay for £2.99) charged it and it worked.

Having said that, I closed the lense from external power. If the camera wont operate from external power then the camera is probably dead.

Canon 20d, mirror constantly setting under power, sounds like the camera shutter constantly engaging, like a multiple exposure. with or without lens attached, with or without memory card, with or without...


preliminary reviews of various forums indicate that this is a shutter-lock issue, requiring the whole shutter assembly to be replaced.
I just sent mine in for repairs for the same issue, but they haven't diagnosed it yet.
It seems that the going rate is around 200$ for a replacement assembly, though some have claimed it has costed as much as $350.

If you take the lens off, pop the battery in, you'll notice the shutter isn't actuating, only the mirror is flipping up and down.

I733 POARIOD PICK CAMERA.


I just dropped mine last night and the lens got in this funny bent position, so I popped it back to where its suppose to be. Now the camera turns on and off without the low battery signal but the lens doesn't retract or do anything by itself anymore. I can hear the little motor running that retracts the lens, but the lens itself doesn't actually move when I hear the little noises. So now, I have a wonderful camera with the lens stuck out. I should state that I have the i631. It's just like the i733 but one megapixel smaller. I've the receipt from the retailer that I bought it from so I'm hoping polaroid will at least look at it. I bought it back in June! It's only 4 to 5 months old!

I'm not sure if this will work for all of you, but try plugging it into your computer. When I had this issue for no apparent reason, plugging it into my computer seemed to awaken my camera out of the protective sleep mode that it was in. Sadly, it's not working for me this time.:-(
