View screen sticks on view mode when switch to take picture mode

When I turn my camera on the view screen shows my last picture taken instead of what I am trying to take - even thought he switchis on take picture mode. If I move the switc from view to picture mode it may flicker for a moment but then it goes back to the view picture mode and I cannot take a picture. i have changed memory cards & batteries and that did not work.

Hi dear, you need to see the manual (http://www.retrevo.com/support/FujiFilm-S700-Digital-Cameras-manual/id/2488ag805/t/2/)

Display screen no longer works while taking pictures


Sounds like they accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of the camera. This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time with the camera turned on.

Camera is on! but blank screen when i turn it on !


Does it actually work? Does it take pictures? It may be that "liveview" is off-that is the screen you normally view on when taking your photos. Try using it and then playing your photos back and check if its woking. A mate of mine had that problem last week and thought her camera was broken!

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS


I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

I took some pics on my laptop built in camera last night n tried this morning to save them to my sd card so i could look at them in my digital camera, but even tho they r stored on the card, i know this...


This is because camera will show these pictures with specific file name/ number.  You need to check camera taken picture file name/ number and change uploaded file name/ numbers as camera firmware generate it.  Please change picture file name according to camera taken picture.
let me know if further help required.
