Question about Fujifilm Finepix S2980
The only error I can think of, is there is a great risk of blurring your picture, because a long shutter time is chosen. But that is very strange when you have enough light. Try to make a picture in the auto exposure mode. If the hello camera comes back I'm baffled like you I guess.
I have to admit I can't find a manual of this camera.

Short of a manual, there's an excellent guide with pictures at
I haven't solved the cable problem yet, or know how to use it. I've ducked the need for it so far because I use a card reader which came with it's own software. I'm reviewing one I got from dcables.net (their DCRO 10) but it came with the wrong serial connection end for my computer, and hasn't been a priority yet to figure out how to adapt it.
If you can identify the software, I'm happy to look for it on my computer. I may have installed it when I got my Fuji MX-1200, but just haven't used it. I'm not even sure you need it. With the camera connected by serial cable to the PC, the PC may recognize the camera as an external device and allow you to drag and drop images from the camera to the PC.
Great camera though and easy to keep with you.
Many of the photos at my evolving Google web album page at http://picasaweb.google.com/wolfsphotoden were shot using the Fuji. "Ortega Park" and "Dottie's Back Porch" are exclusively Fuji MX-1200; also a good number of the "Sea Cliff" building shots (not the long distance ones or the bird/vegetation shots).

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
Hope the advise is useful.
