I want Date & time stamp on pictures

Hello and Welcome
To set the date and time stamp on pictures, Follow the given instructions:
  • Power on the FUJIFILM FinePix J28 digital camera and wait for the hardware to finish running through its start mode
  • Press the "Menu" button on the rear of the device, then choose "Setup."
  • Select "Options," followed by "Date." This brings up the date display. The display blinks as it has not yet been set.
  • Push the top button on the control display to advance the first number in the date. Once you have the correct number selected press "Enter" and repeat the process for all the numbers. When the date is set the time information appears. Follow the same procedure to set the time. Press "Enter" to accept the changes.

When I turn on my camera the shooting setting display menu comes up, but after I take a picture the screen just goes black. I can still take pictures and everything. I have a Canon EOS 1000D by the way...a

Okay, there are a few possibilities and things to check out if you haven't already found a solution to this problem.
First, it sounds like you've turned off the display by hitting the button. Page 42 of the manual describes hitting the , which toggles the display between being off and on. So, try hitting that button and see if that fixes your problem.

One other thing to check out is the LCD Monitor Off/On setting, which is described on page 115 of the manual. If you're still having problems with your display after toggling the button then check this setting and make sure that it is on the [Shutter btn.] option.

Finally, it's possible that one of the custom functions is affecting the behavior of the display. To get to the custom functions just hit then use the arrow buttons to select [Custom Functions (C. Fn)] under the second to last menu item along the top, as shown in the next picture from page 152 of the manual.

From there choose C.Fn-11 for "LCD display when power ON" and make sure it is set to 0: Display, which will turn the display on when the camera is turned on, instead of 1: Retain power OFF status, which will keep the display off when the camera is turned on.
Since it's been a while I imagine you may have already solved this issue, but if not, then I hope these troubleshooting tips will solve your problem.
Good luck and have fun. :)

The images apprear purple on the screen, and dark in patches. New photo's taken, come out purple. But existing photo's appear on the screen as, normal.


If the previously captured images are appearing fine in the Camera, then the issue is with the CCD Image Sensor unit only. Check if the display icons are appearing normally on the Camera screen.

Try power resetting and Factory resetting the Camera to check if the issue can be resolved:
Power reset:
Remove the batteries from the Camera.
Press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds.
Then, reinsert the batteries after 1 minute.
Factory reset;
To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.

Home-->Settings-->Main Settings 1-->Initialize-->OK

When trying to take picture of my children it is very blurry. Yes they are somewhat moving but it didn't use to be as bad as what it is now. Should I try another setting? Thanks

Check if the white balance setting in the camera menu is set to Auto White Balance (AWB) . Ordinarily, the auto white balance function of the camera can resolve issues with color accuracy, but sometimes certain lighting conditions can still cause discoloration. For example, the entire image may appear blue under cloudy conditions and white subjects may have a reddish tint under incandescent bulbs. If the auto white balance does not resolve the issue, try a different white balance setting, depending on the condition - Daylight , Cloudy , Fluorescent , etc.

If the issue still persists after changing the settings, please initialize the Camera and that should resolve the issue.

To Initialize the Camera,

Press MENU to display the menu of the Camera.
After pressing the FORWARD ARROW key on the Control buttons, go to SETUP and then press the FORWARD ARROW key again.
Scroll to the SETUP 1 submenu using the Arrow keys. Press the ENTER key ( the key at the center of the arrow keys ) once you reach SETUP1.
Then scroll to INITIAZE setting.
Then select the INITIALIZE option using the ENTER key and then select the OK option.
Then press the ENTER key to select the OK option.

After initializing, the Clock Set will be displayed, set the Clock and capture an image and then the images should appear perfect.

If the issue still persists, then the Camera requires to be physically examined to determine the exact issue.

Thank You!

When looking through the display screen the picture has a pink tinge. When reviewing the pictures they're definately pink in colour, especially the blues.

Try taking pictures and download them to a computer. Check the colors and evaluate the quality compared to what you have seen in the LCD display.
If the pictures are good and the colors seem to appear good on the computer, then some thing is either not adjusted correctly for the LCD or you may have a menu setting which is incorrect. Check all setting in the menus.
Test the camera again, and see what the colors look like in the LCD display.
If both the LCD display and the pictures on the computer are the same, then some problem exists in the camera, and may need fixing, or sell on a site such as Ebay for parts or repair as is.

When I try to view my pictures on the LCD screen, the white area of the picture flashes. Last week on vacation, it would intermitenly stop taking pictures. I would have to set the lens and camera to...


If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

As for the focus problem check if you have set the front control to AF not M, also check if the lens is set to A not M.

Turn on camera but the lcd sceen is black

Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.

Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.

If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
