I can only offer advice if you're feeling adventurous which may lead to a solution. Intermittent faults are a real pain and could be located in any one of several places, however, the screen is fairly easy to access with a tri-blade screwdriver and a small pozi-driver. ( The tri-blades are available on eBay.) Remove the battery and memory card if fitted. The camera back panel can be released from the main body by removing 5 screws, 2 on each side of the camera body, and 1 on the bottom nearest the screen. Tease the camera apart but take care, because a flat ribbon cable joins the two parts. The 2 halves can remain connected but opened out, outsides face down.The screen is revealed. If you gently lift the screen with a fingernail on the opposite side to screen ribbon cable it can be lifted across revealing the ribbon cable socket. Your possible fault could be a poor connection to this socket, unlikely, but possible. Any sign of misalignment or incomplete insertion could be the problem.( The ribbon socket normally comes in white with a black clamping strip.) The ribbon cable is released by inserting a fingernail under the edge of the black strip away from the ribbon cable and gently lifting - the cable may then be eased from the socket. Just replacing and re-clamping may clear a connection problem but a quick wipe with clean tissue would help. Any signs of marks or heaven forbid corrosion, would need more attention. A second area for scrutiny is the backlight connection, which is a soldered connection adjacent to the main ribbon on the screen sub-assembly. To date, spare screen parts come as 2 sub-assemblies, the LCD, and the backlight. One or other of the soldered joints could be dry. The greatest of care should be taken if a soldering iron enters the equation. If this doesn't help, then return to Fuji repair centre. I have assumed that said camera is out of warranty and you've got nothing to lose.

My finepix z5 by fuji flash quit working how can i fix this or do i need to get a new camara?

I had the exact same problem; my camera wouldn't turn on when unplugged from the wall, and wasn't charging, and I thought that it was broken.
It turned out that I actually had the battery in the wrong way around (embarrassing for a technician really :| ) ; you have to flip the battery so the left is now the right side and vice versa. NOT top to bottom, just a flip on it's Y axis (if it were standing with the shortest face as a base).

When the camera is turned there is no isplay on

Sounds like you yanked out the cord without using the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your screen. Now your camera is corrupted (probably the card,too). To get back to life as you knew it: 1. Go out and buy a card reader and use it to download the pics from your card. 2. With no card in the camera, remove the all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. 3. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen directions. Now, enjoy your camera.

I have a Finepix Z5 but the screen wont go on, the camera sounds like it is working when you turn it on but the screen stays black. The flash works when you take a picture.

You may have already tried this, but try pushing the button that says "DISP" on it. If this doesn't work, I would say that it needs to be repaired.

Fuji Fine Pix Z5 battery won't charge

I looked up this question with the same problem and while the battery was placed in with the right side in, the three metal tabs weren't on the right side with the three metal chargers- so I had to spin it around the other way...i hope i'm explaining this it's charging! I am so glad. This camera is excellent.

when I slide the camera to turn it on, the camera turns on BUT the monitor doesn't.  I can hear the camera as I take pictures, and zoom in/out (all beep sounds work) but I can't see my pictures because the LCD doesn't turn on.
