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. ???

How do i delete memory card


In photo mode (not in view mode) there is a 'format' function under 'Menu'. This erases everything on the memory card, so transfer the pictures you want to keep to a safe location first.
A download link for the manual of your camera is provided below.

I took pictures on my camera without a memory card can i still download my pictures


I'm glad to provide the steps to transfer images from Internal Memory of the Camera. When the camera does not have a memory card in it, the images are saved by default to the camera's internal memory, which holds different amounts of images based on how many megapixels are built into the internal memory and what image quality and compression are selected in the camera's menu. Once a memory\picture card is inserted in the camera, the camera then saves the photos to the memory\picture card and ignores the internal memory.

There are two ways to transfer the images from the internal memory.




  • To transfer photos to a computer from the internal memory using the USB cable, first remove the memory card from the camera. Then, when the camera is connected, the computer and software will only see what is in the internal memory and transfer those photos or videos. During the transfer process, the computer makes copies of the photos and videos-the original images remain in the internal memory. After the transfer is complete and the camera is safely disconnected from the computer, the contents of the internal memory can be deleted by using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.


  • The other way to transfer photos from the internal memory is to transfer them to the memory\picture card using the BACKUP function in the SETUP menu. If there is no memory\picture card in the camera, the BACKUP function is grayed-out. During BACKUP, copies of the images are transferred to the memory\picture card-the original images remain in the internal memory. After the BACKUP is complete, the internal memory can be cleared by removing the memory\picture card and formatting the internal memory using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.


Note: When the camera is connected to a computer using the USB cable with a memory\picture card in the memory\picture card slot, the computer will only see the contents of the memory\picture card.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any additional help.

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

How do l free up my memory stick after downloading the pictures?


assuming that you are talking about a memory card ..just get into view mode..and on the menu choose storage ..than options and clear memory card ..or ..just again in view mode..choose a picture and options and when you try to delete will ask for multiple delete ...select them all and delete ..or just insert the card into a card reader and when it shows in the my computer folder open it ..select all pictures and than press delete ..
the fastest way though is to simple select in the main menu the storage ...in there select card ..and on options format card ...this will erase all on it ..and format it in the same time for best performance in the device ..

Important photos are stuck in the internal memory of my camera.


Select the Display mode with the top dial. Press the Set button to bring up the menus. Press the Rev key to scroll down through the menus. On the second page of menus, select the Copy menu. Then press the Lightning Bolt key to scroll right. Select the top of the 2 menu items. This will copy the internal pics to the memory card, assuming you have a memory card inserted.

Erasing the memory card;


All pictures in the internal memory and/or on the memory card can be erased at once. This is accomplished through either formatting or the "all-frame erase" function. I copied the following instructions from the advanced manual, which can be downloaded here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/d545zadvman.pdf. Adobe reader should open that file with no problem. If it doesn't, that's another issue altogether.

1. Enter playback mode by pressing the play button.
2. Press the OK MENU button.
3. Press the right arrow button (next to the lightning bolt) to access [MODE MENU]
4. Then, press the down arrow to access the [MEMORY(CARD)] tab.
5. Select the [ALL ERASE] function.
6. Select Yes and press OK MENU.

(You'll need to use the arrow buttons to navigate the menus. Please see pg 16 of the manual for instructions on how to do so.)

Note: when the memory card is in the camera, it will erase the pictures off the card. When the card is removed, the function above will erase the internal memory.

Taking pictures


You may have turned off the viewing screen mode. I've turned my off just to save the battery. There should be a setting/mode so that can at least scroll thru to view the images you've shot. As for the Busy Message my best guess is the memory cards full. My camera (a kodak) has the option to save images to a very small, useless internal memory or another card. Perhaps yours offers same - so switch to large memory. As for zooming in as close as you can, you may want to visit a state that's closer. Yea as you can see the zooms on the Point & Shoot cameras are very limited. Its only good for zooming into things that are just a very short distance away.
