My camera has frozen the same as many i have read about on this site. The camera is 20months old but has very rarely been used. Can anyone tell me if there is any hope of getting this repaired or replaced? what is the warranty period for my camera?

The voltage across the points when fired is very high on old style flashguns if you try this on a modern digital camera you may fry the electrics in the camera. Get a flash gun that is compatible with your camera Have look at the Yongnuo range.
Your camera is a seven year old model using a 3.1MP sensor which has been out of production for a long time. I've just checked my parts catalogues going back to 2007 and the sensor had already been de-listed back then and the part is not listed on any of the trade sites I subscribe to. Even good used examples of your model are proving to be as rare as rocking horse droppings.
The only way you'll find one is by pure luck as an NOS (new old stock) item. There are bound to be some around but the nature of most NOS parts is that they lie around in boxes completely forgotten until the owner has a clear out and then they usually end up on auction sites. One eBay trader (romancamerarepair) has been listing 602z parts recently but hasn't listed the part you're after, but you have nothing to lose by asking at http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/romancamerarepair/
Sther than that, it's probably time to sell your camera for "spares or repair" and buy a newer replacement. It's a real shame as the 602 zoom is a fine camera but like all digital cameras it was never destined to last as long as a good 35mm film camera.
Not the answer you were hoping for, I'm sure, but I hope that you still found it to be helpful. All I ask in return is that you return the favour by rating my answer.
They do go bad in rare cases......
buy a cheap card reader from radio shack and use your PC to try and read it.
- or -
find a buddy with a devise that takes the same card and see if his reads it.
- or -
buy a new card and test the new card in your devise......if the new card reads ok then your old card is bad
I suggest that you logon to the fuji website and update the picture program offered for your camera. But any picture program on your computer may read the pics when you attach the camera and turn it on picture display. I have an s7000 and rarely use the one offered by Fuji. My olympus and canon programs also work with my fuji camera.
