Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flash button won't select mode.

Hi everyone, I just inherited a Fuji S5000 in great condition and love it apart from one thing...I can't get the flash button to work. I've followed the instruction manual, selected AUTO but the button just won't select any flash setting. I know the button itself is working because I can use it to navigate through the setup menu but in normal photography mode it doesn't do a thing. Any advice would be welcome, many thanks.

You cannot set anything on auto mode! The camera sets itself automatically. try taking shot(AutoMode)in dimlit area or no light at all. If it's taking shots and flash isn't firing, your flash bulb is already busted! I suggest you buy a separate flash unit (they cost the same as replacing parts and service fee), a cheap one is comparable or works the same as the costly one, if you know how to set up on manual mode ( they call it compose or advance or creative mode!)

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power


see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

The flash is not working anymore. how can i replace it?


Hi, Check your setting for when you take photo's inside or outside. In dark areas the flash should come on. Check and /or replace batteries. Good luck.
Take a picture in a dark room and see if flash comes on.

    Pictures with a flash are way overexposed. It just started this so I am sure there is something wrong with the flash. Pictures without a flash are fine


    My Fuji has started doing the same thing!
    The only way I can get a reasonably exposed photo is to place a piece of white paper in front of the flash to act as a diffuser.
    Any info you can find out would be appreciated...even if to know that this is a permanent situation.
    Still takes GREAT outdoor and moon shots!

    Flash problem


    Same here. Any flash picture comes out nearly bleached out. Started from one picture being fine to the next being white. I'm very frustrated because I love this camera. I have a Digi Rebel and prefer my Fuji 5000! Anyone have any ideas?

    Flash


    Sounds like the bulb might be a gonner. Can you hear it charge when you turn it on flash mode?
