    Turned on the camera and the lens did not open. I hear the lens attempting to open but it can't. I get the green light to flash but it turns off. I tried many times but nothing helps.

    Yes, very similar problem.



    First time this happened on a trip that included bumpy road but camera in protective case. Went to turn, gears ground away, lense popped out then it shut down and would not turn on.



    Removed and changed batteries with fresh. No change. 4 hours later I tried again and it turned on part way and turned off again. Did this several times within a few minutes and eventually it stayed working. Worked OK for 6 months, then did the same thing again, but has failed to revive. It will start up but shuts off (freezes/no further action) after a few seconds.



    What recourse do I have? Just giving up and buying a new one doesn't seem quite right, nor is it a solution. If this is irrepairable, what is the problem and why?



    I have enjoyed the camera for its lense features (unbeatable close-focus & wide angle) and there is no copmparison on the market. Please give me osme good news.

Fuji Technical Support team website is the place to ask for further advice. But if the camera is more than a ear old - replacement is the only remedy.

Everything works fine until I engage the PTO for the mower deck. The battery discharge light comes on and eventually the battery goes dead.


The PTO clutch is an electro magnet. There is probably a dead short within the clutch body. Replace the Clutch.

Hi all...I was stuck in a horrible traffic jam 4 2 hours...in which 1 1/2 hrs were less than 5 mph. My truck is a 2003 Ford Escape. My radio went out then the lights started 2 dim and a brake light came...


I suppose its possible the alternator stopped charging the battery enough at the low engine speed but then worked on the way home.
The alternator will charge 12 - 13 volts at idle, but you could have enough accessories and the cooling fan running to use more voltage or amps than it is producing. Stopping at a traffic light for a couple of minutes does not hurt anything since the battery is usually fully charged. But idling for an hour or more with everything on could run the battery down.
You might want to have the computer checked for codes even tho the check engine light may not have been on. Also have the alternator and battery tested again to see if something happened while in heavy traffic.

My laptop is completely dead, fine yesterday. Today no lights, sounds nothing. I tried removing the battery , unplugging no response. Thanks,


Remove the battery for at least 3 minutes... Then put it back and then plug in the charger and switch on the charger. If the battery is completely drained, it would take a while for the charging to initiate. Please have patience and leave it on charging even though without the charging indication for at least an hour. After that still if the charging indicator doesn't lit, then its definitely your charger or laptop. You will need to take it to a service centre in that case.

The truck stalled a few days ago. It was jumped and ran fine. Yesterday it stalls again, but won't the battery won't hold a charge. It was towed to the shop and they said everything tested fine once they...


sound like might have a prooblem with the charging system. if the altenator is not charging the battery while driving then when the battery voltage gets too low (prob around 10volts) then the computers will shut down, then when jump started it gets some power back, and when the battery is charged will all work fine for a while.
does your model have the voltage gauge in the dash? should be over 12 volts when engine running, 14volts is a good charge rate. and should stay up above 12 all the time, with lights on air condon etc...
and altenators can be funny, work sometimes, and not atother times,

Not sure if this will help... however an altmeter will allow you to test along your electrics for any faults. You can check at the lights for example and throught the system.

Battery Charge - First Use


My experience was similar to yours. The LED turned green after about only 2 hours. Because I didn't want to stay up until midnight to start playing with my Axim, I took it out of the cradle after the 2 hours and everything was fine. Besides, having downloaded and read the user's guide 2 days before receving my Axim, I knew that a green LED meant it was ready to go. 3 days later, everything is still fine and seems normal. A year ago, I received a Palm with similar initial charging requirements, and it also didn't take as long as the directions said it would.
