I read up about it and turns out that that model turned out unsuccfull cause it was verry easy to lose data wipe the system cause a code error and dropping usially stuffed it up 2
but try this anyways if u have a docking station plug it in than make sure its off first then turn on
make sure u conect it to the computer when it reads the camra on computer then remove it then replug it back in and open the camra to the computer leave it runing on for 5 or 10 mins if your camra is stuffed it will show this message
An error occurred in the io-library ('Could not claim the USB device'): Could not claim interface 0 (Operation not permitted). Make sure no other program or kernel module (such as sdc2xx, stv680, spca50x) is using the device and you have read/write access to the device.»
or u simply have jammed the lense and broken the motor works in the camera
jaming the lens can cause a programing loop in the hardware and software i think the best way to fix it
would be to incert the CRV3; 2-AA lithium charger in and out a few times to stop the programing loop by a certian amount of electric voltage current that will shock ur programing system to automatically correct its self
you should have a flash memory built in and a SD/MMC card make sure that its incerted it will help stop any programing functions by automaticly sending data to the hard disk flash memory forcing the program to work
basickly try forcing programs to pick up the camra software like the printer dock the usb cable and the av cable
if none works it basickly stuffed
thoe u can hack it but seriously if u dont knw what ur doing don try lol
so yeaa thats about all i can do for u
if you understand programs and software and can hack heres a link youll just have to search in for the latest post on the download link
http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1011&message=20329748
this allso allows u to do a load more with ur camra like super zooming , auto face detect , more video effects ,extending a flash memory to ur internal memory and **** like that lol
write bakk
l8ers aii hope it works

Samsung camera still not working


I personally have had great luck with the Kodak Z650. It's an inexpensive full featured camera that provides a good zoom ratio (10x optical + 5x electronic = 50x zoom), the convenience of a charging dock that lets you connect to your computer AND charge the camera by simply dropping the camera into it, and plenty of available accessories. I have two of these cameras and I recently gave one to my daughter and her husband. Kodak.com is a good source for these (new & refurbished), and eBay is probably an even better source. AVOID the Kodak printer dock though. Quality is poor, and they are prone to multiple problems.

Don't give up on the Samsung yet, though. The problem you describe is frequently battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

PLEASE HELP.


someone595,
Don't panic, keep in mind to turn off the camera before you remove the SD card or change lenes. Charging the battery shouldn't take too long put it back in make sure the lens is properly locked in place, put in the SD card in then turn it on and you should be good to go. let me know I'll check back in an hour to see if that helped.

Turn off the camera, remove the battery pack. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds. Reinsert the the battery pack. Turn on the camera.

Please make sure the Battery is fully charged before performing this steps.

Also try changing the Batteries of the Camera. "AA" NiMH, "AA" Alkaline, "AA"

Please check the following things when the camera does not turn on.

Possible causes and how to handle them

1. The camera is not on

Turn on the camera. (Operation procedure varies between camera models. Please refer to the camera user guide supplied with your camera.)


2. The rechargeable battery is not fully charged.

Make sure the rechargeable battery is fully charged. If the battery has not been used for an extended period of time, or if it is being used for the first time, it may not be fully charged. In cases like this, fully charge the battery and then discharge it completely in the camera several times to bring the battery back to its normal performance.



The rechargeable battery's capacity diminishes the longer the battery is used. When the battery consumption becomes quicker, the battery life may be at its end. Replace the battery with a new one.


3. The battery terminals are dirty.

When camera does not operate with a brand-new alkaline battery (for cameras that use AA-size batteries) or with a fully charged rechargeable battery, the terminals may be dirty.
Polish the terminals with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are clean. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and power may not be fully supplied to the camera.

Also, polish the battery charger terminals with a dry cloth before charging the battery. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and the battery may not be fully charged.


4. The batteries are not installed correctly (for cameras that use AA-size batteries)

For cameras that use AA-size batteries, multiple batteries are used in one camera. Make sure the direction of each battery matches the direction indicated on the camera. If any of the batteries are improperly inserted, the camera will not operate.


5. The battery cover or CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed

Most cameras have a lock mechanism on the battery cover. The camera will not turn on if the battery cover is not locked or securely closed, or if the CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed. Make sure these covers are securely closed.



If your camera does not operate after checking each of these things, or if there is any visible damage on your camera that could be the cause, please contact the nearest Service Center.

My camera wont turn on


Yep you need to get an AC adapter. Can get a multiple voltage one at electronics store cheaply enough. Cheaper than getting an actual Fuji one that is for sure..
Then try to download the firmware for it from Fuji and that should do the trick... If not like you said time to get a new one.
Good luck.

Depleated batteries?


But is the camera working? Check out the HP technical Support team-there may be an issue that are aware of and a reworked camera will come winging your way If the camera is more than a year old-repair is not an economic option

It won't turn on!


If you are sure you are running the camera properly. And you put good fresh batteries in making sure the batteries are in the right way. You might want to find the receipt and return it to the store. Cameras can get pricey fast to repair.
