Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

Help! Won't turn on

I just purchased this camera today. It was fine and taking good pics. I was exploring the buttons while the camera was on. I pushed the evf/lcd button, to check out the viewfinder and the camera shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, it did so for a split second and then nothing. I was able to get it turned on with the playback button. But again in pushing the evf/lcd button it kicked off and did the same thing. I tried new batteries, so it's not that. Can anyone help, I'm pretty bummed out right about now.

    Yes, I purchased it new. And, have tried multiple sets of new batteries. It seems like the evs/lcd button is what triggered the problem. The camera was on and functioning great. I pushed that button and that's it. Thnaks for the info though. I'm taking it back to the store today.

    Thanks for the help Noggin. I returned the camera today for an exchange and this one works fine. I just wonder if that was a freak thing that I had or will be a problem for future owners. Have a great holiday.

    Thanks Inky. Pressing the evs/lcd button turned the camera off and it wouldn't come back. But, it turned out that the camera was faulty. I took it back and got a new one and this one is fine. I guess I just had the unhappy fortune of getting an oddball reject. I thank you for your help, though...:-)

When you press the EVF/LCD button the camera toggles it's display setting from using the LCD to using the viewfinder or vice versa. So if you were in normal mode and pressed the button, it should switch from using the LCD to using the EVF. If the lens is capped, the LCD/EVF will show nothing. The toggle setting is retained even when powering off the camera. Set the power switch to the camera symbol Set the mode dial to Auto Set the focus mode S-AF Looking through the viewfinder with lens uncapped, press the shutter release half way. Do you get the beep and a green indicator (Near the zoom buttons) - steady means camera is ready? Will the camera now take the picture? If so take a picture and record it onto the memory. Set the power switch to the |> symbol and see if the recorded image(s) are now displayed on the LCD. If you see a recorded image it suggests the LCD is OK. If no image is displayed the LCD may well be faulty.

    Sounds like you have the same luck as me. If they make one in 2,000,000 that is faulty - that will be the one that I buy!!

    Glad it's sorted for you though. Happy Snapping

Fuji suggests; "If the digital camera will not turn on, run through the "Checklist" given below. If this does not solve the problem, take the camera, the batteries, and the AC Power Adapter to an authorized FUJIFILM service center for testing and repairs. [Checklist] 1. The direction of your battery might be wrong. Confirm it and put it again. 2. Load new or fully charged batteries. 3. The battery terminals may be dirty in a way that cannot be seen (fingerprints, etc.). Wipe the terminals clean with a soft cloth. 4. Press the Power button again firmly." Cleaning the battery contacts sounds worth a try. Fuji also say; "Please use only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries with Fujifilm digital cameras Please note that instruction manuals provided with Fujifilm digital cameras recommend that only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are used with those digital cameras which require AA or AAA type batteries. If other types of batteries are used together with an AC adaptor, this may result in the rare occurrence of the battery overheating. Please do not use batteries other than those recommended in our instruction manuals." Check that the type of battery is correct Did you buy the camera new? is it still under warranty? Here is the link to the support page for the s7000 including manuals, repair centre details etc; http://www.fujifilmusa.com/JSP/fuji/epartners/ServiceSupportBrowse.jsp?prodcat=616757&sscucatid=664272&sscucatid=664271 or direct to the manual; http://www.fujifilmusa.com/JSP/fuji/epartners/bin/S7000Manual.pdf Apart from contacting Fuji for service, the only suggestion I could find in the manual was that the battery cover may not be closing fully. Worth checking. Hope this helps :)

    Ps if none of that helps, it sounds like the problem is with the lcd screen, probably only repairable by replacement.

My lcd display won't show the camera image while taking pics but it will show the menu and previously taken photos by pressing the play button. What could be wrong?


Turn the camera on, and press the DISP button on the back of the camera. This turns the LCD screen on and off. The idea of this button is to save battery power (you would then use the peep hole optical viewfinder in its place).

I have lost my camera book and need help .when I try to print pics at Walgreens computer will not load pics.it says no photos available.but I can take pics fine and look at them on cf card in camera b


You may download the manual and more from here.

Are you possibly shooting pictures in RAW format? Photo kiosks such as those at Walgreens won't recognize Canon RAW photos, only JPEGs. Check the camera's image quality settings, as described beginning on page 60 of the manual.

Hi I am an older person and not very computer savy I just got this camera for my birthday and I have read the manual and for the life of me I cant work out how to use it , can you help me?


I have the same camera. First ,use brand anme batteries...not the discount type. The "power on" button is the one on top that is the larger of the tow next to each other. . The taking the pic button is the very largest of the threee silver buttons on top. I personally do not mess with the "settings" because it seems rather pointless. You will notice that as soon as you turn the camera on it functions as a recorder ratehr than a camera. Do not be alarmed. Just find the shot you want to take and hit the larger button on top. I purchased a 4gb card to insert in the camera so that mine would hold more pics.. The slot for that is on the bottom. Take it to your local shop or drug store and they can help you chose the correct one. The button on the back that says W and T are for wide angle and zoom. You can choose that option any time. The small button under witha tiny green arrow above that is for seeing what is on your camera. Just play with it. You wont kill it. Its not a living thing. For each picture you scroll thru on your camera, if you hit the menu or options button on the bottom yuo can delate or save them.
Just play with it. Take pics around the house you dont care about nad then play with the menu options buttons.
Now as far as downloading to you computer...just turn plug in the cord and turn the camera on. The rest of the info on that,what folders to choose and how to relocate them, i will have to get back to you on. I have to play with those things every time.
Now just go play in the house or outside. The more you explore, the more familiar you will become.
As far as using it for avideo recorder...i havent explored that yet.

To view the pics on a D80, you do not click on the Menu button. Instead, you should click on the green button with a triangle shape pointing to the right. That is how you can review your pics.

To move between pics after clicking the button, press the left/right button or move your main dial clockwise/counter-clockwise

To close your preview session, just click on the same button with the triangle.

Card not initialized


Kyle850. I have a fujifilm finepix camera myself, and just recently had the same problem. The camera worked fine until one day I turned it on to take a picture and there was the "card not initialized" message. To fix the problem, just turn on your camera, push the menu button and use the right/left arrow buttons near the zoom button in the top left corner of the camera. Push the right arrow button until you come to the "option" window in the camera's view finder and use the "up" function of the zoom to highlight the "set-up" window. Press "ok", and use the right arrow button scoll over to the "2" tab and press the ok button again. Then use the "up/down" function of the zoom button to scroll down to the "format" tab. Press ok button again and use the "left" button near the zoom in and out button to highlight the "ok" option in the format window. By pressing the ok button here, it will reformat and reinitialize your picture card. If you do have pics already on your pic card, you may want to take your pic card to a photo center and see about recovering these pics before you go through the reformat process because there is a good chance that when you reformat your pic disk any pics on it will be gone. Good luck. SG

Won't stay turned on


Since mine was only a day or two old, I took it back to the store and got it replaced. Since then, it's been fine. Hope you have the same option.
