Question about Fuji Finepix S9600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Our fuji finepix s9600 has started coming up with an error message "focus error", even if you set it to manual focus, any ideas?

It started doing it when we outside taking pictures in the snow, when the camera is switched on, and on the AFC setting which means it should be constantly adjusting to suit, I can't hear the usual "grinding" sound you get as it focuses

    maybe "griding" was the wrong word, but you could definitely hear the lense adjusting when on the "constantly adjust" setting, it's now working again after a gentle tap on the lense, not impressed though, it seems to me that something like this will let down a perfectly good camera!!

If you say that the camera was making a grinding sound before it quit working the grinding noise should have been looked at then, cameras do not make grinding sounds if they are working properly. the sound is the drive unit going bad and that is why you are now getting the focus error because the drive unit has quit working completely !!!! It is now time for the shop.

SOURCE: Fuji Finepix S5200- Problem with autofocus

Hi I had exactly that problem and in frustration left it in the cupboard for 2 months and then it worked again perfectly, but the same problem has reappeared, I have had a quote from Fuji in Singapore s$246 for new lens and it is only 2.2years old! Can sympathize and would think twice about buying another or even fixing it.

SOURCE: focus error

Check out this link: www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/fuji-finepix-z1_question.html?qid=4289
After the basics, try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

Hi

I have the same camera and have devised this solution. Remove batteries, leave for about 10 mins then replace batteries ( make sure they are in good condition, Cover the aperture whilst switching it on and it should work - mine did on the 2nd attempt.

Good Luck

Try buying lense cleaner to remove fingerprints, smudges and other 'particles' from the optical lense. Call Fuji, let them advise you.

My fuji s9600 has pixel problem i.e cannot enlarge the photos more than 4*6 size


It sounds like you are using wrong settings.
S9600 produce 3488x2616 pixels with the highest settings, which should be more than sufficient to produce 11x 8" prints.
To change picture settings, press the F button, choose Quality, select 9M F (or N, if you can live the more aggressive JPG comprimation)

Sounds like the CCD (main image sensor) is dead. It should be covered under warranty. It doesn't sound like there is anything you've done, or can do to rectify it. Get it in to a Fuji service center with your warranty/receipts.
