Question about Fuji Finepix S3280 14mp Hd Digital Camera 24x Zoom 720p Video 3 Lcd Black
This camera has only been used approximately 3 times. It won't even power on. Tried new batteries but still doesn't work. Can't believe this camera failed in this short of time. The camera looks like brand new but I guess it is just a piece of junk.

This may or may not work (it's primarily a trick for certain Canon cameras with similar symptoms). Remove the cameras battery, then remove the memory card. Insert a BRAND NEW or fully charged rechargeable batteries. DO NOT insert the memory card. Instead, just turn on the camera. If the lens retracts, turn off the camera, insert the memory card, then restart the camera.
If this doesn't work, here are some other things to try. But don't get your hopes up, as they only seem to work for little less than half the cameras with similar problems:

Either your camera board is dead, or you are not using the right batteries. There are 2 types of AA batteries on the market today. One type is the normal 1.5V batteries. The other is the special lithium batteries that run a slightly higher voltage, usually about 2V. Many camera owners do not know this fact.

I had the same problem, same camera. So I checked to see if other digital cameras had the same problem, and some did. Seems to be with the batteries. I took out my memory card, and reinstalled the batteries that came with my camera, I've only had it a few days. Turned it on and it worked, so I took a pic, and then turned it back off and reinstalled the memory card, and made sure it was formatted. Turned the camera back on and it worked, and took another pic with no problems. The batteries I have right now are Panasonic Alkaline for Digital. They seem to be a heavier battery, because the cheaper ones are lighter and didn't work. So I say try that brand or make sure the batteries are for digital purposes. Hope this helps.

Check the memory card or battery door for the tab that activates the cut out switch. It ,or the switch, may have sustained damage. I'm not 100% on this model but if it's like the S5700/ S5800 models then the memory card door has a tab for the cut out switch to prevent card removal whist powered up.
