Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera
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.
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.

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 :)
