Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My S5000 wont switch on to shoot mode

When I switch my camera on I can view the pictures on the memory card and perform all the functions on the menus, but when I switch it to camera mode I get no response - it just stays on the picture view mode, I have tried replacing batteries, memory cards etc, I think it might be the switch. Any Ideas??

    ya...a risky switch in this model...i bought a parts camera but the switch looks like a difficult item to remove and install. i ordered a service manual and will look at the switch replacement procedure...looks like a cheap design isue...good luck

    I am having the same problem.. can do everything except switch on to shoot mode and take a picture! Called Fuji who said to send it down to their service centre but i'm a bit iffy about how much it might end up costing...



    what a bummer!!

    The same thing happened to me last night at my birthday party, right when I wanted to start taking photos!

    I've had my Fuji FinePix S5000 for more than three years and ***** had a serious problem with it. But **w I can only view photos, **t take them, ** matter what mode setting I'm in.

    Very frustrating and I don't k**w how to get this fixed or what to do, but I use my camera constantly and don't want to give it up...

    I'll call Fuji and perhaps take it to a local camera shop, but does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Ok, mine is just the opposite. Mine will take pictures just fine, but when I switch to review mode, I don't get anything at all. I can transfer the pictures to my computer, but can't review them on the LCD screen at all. ???

After I shoot a picture the camera freezes up. I have to power off and up a couple of times to get it back to shoot mode. It does not store the image when it freezes up.


Can you power up the camera don't take a picture but move around the functions and view pictures on the LCD screen? If the camera does all the functions it's suppose to except hold a picture then I'd say the memory is at question. You might not have a memory card installed in the camera and it's working on the Internal Memory which is now full or not able to load another picture. If there is a memory card in the camera it might have the protection switch in the lock position which then would shift the picture storage to the internal memory. You need to check to see if there is a memory card in the camera if so make sure this card is in the unlock position. If the images are on the internal memory then you need to transfer the internal memory pictures to the memory card for download to the PC. Make sure the memory card is unlocked and formatted to the camera after you download the pictures to the PC

My Fujifilm s5000 camera turns on but when I go to take a picture it turns off. I can view my pictures but can't take any.


Your memory card or internal memory may be full. I've run into situations where the card full doesn't flash on the monitor or LCD screen because there is lets say 3 gigs of memory left but the picture you are taking is 3.5gig's it won't take the picture because there isn't enough memory to put the image anywhere. Download your pictures to your computer, format your memory card and all should be good again. If you are using the internal memory you will need to obtain (buy) a memory card for your camera and download from the internal memory each picture from the memory card one by one until all the internal pictures are on the removable memory card then download these to the computer. After you have them on the computer go back into the internal memory and delete each of thse pictures and you are ready to start taking pictures once again. it took me longer to type this then the process will take to do.

Snowy lcd screen and the eye view is also snowy


Test the camera by taking a picture and saving to the memory card. Then download it from the card to the computer and view it. If it is clear, the problem is in the playback system or the LCD.

Mode switch has broken off and the camera screen says no image


it probably remained locked on the viewer and there are no images capture stored into the camera ..that's why it says that ....and it must be a way to restore the function of that button cause no matter if you lock it permanently into the the shooting mode its still a issue of getting pics out of it ....most cameras have to be on viewing mode when are plugged on the data cable ...but ..if you can open it and switch it on the mode that allow you to take pictures...you can always get the pictures from the SD card directly via an card reader ...adapter ( USB) that cost only a few dollars...

Cannot shoot picture


The mode switch (off/play/record) is a weak point on many digital cameras. It is likely that yours needed to be replaced.
