Finepix S9100 humming type motor noise

When ever I turn the camera on there is a motor type noise that does not stop. Almost sounds like the auto focus trying to run all the time.  Just got the camera used so I do not know what normal is for this camera.  All seems to work fine however. Any input?

There is a setting on the left side of the camera- you have it set to constantly focus. I had the same problem

    addendum: the auto focus switch (AF) should be in the (S) position. Hope this helps.

How to fix my camera


Without having someone inspect the camera in person, it sounds as though a fault/defect has developed with the lens focus mechanism...that's about the only thing on this camera that's likely to make such a noise.

The first thing I would check is any focus options you have set in the menu. For example, is the camera set to continuous focus? That could keep the lens motor going constantly. If available, see if you have an option for spot focus or manual focus and if so, try setting it...that should, in theory, turn off the focus mechanism (and eliminate the noise).

If that solution don't help, unfortunately it may simply be time to replace the camera. The Finepix S3000 is an older 3.2 mp camera, which by today's standards is something of a dinosaur. Used, they're only worth $50 or less (I've seen a couple for as little as $15), so they're not really worth much effort at repair. Fuji makes some fine cameras, however like so many modern electronic devices today, they're simply not designed for longevity.

The paddle on my kitchenaid won't turn. It just makes a humming noise. Any suggestions?


Is the humming noise the sound of the motor straining to turn without moving (it won't last very long like that) or the sound of the motor turning but not operating the paddle?

Is there anyway to reset my s9100 to its default settings? I dont know what I've done but almost all of my photo's are turning out blurred.


You could go into the menu and find "reset" but, you should try some experiments first. Set the camera on a tripod or firm surface and take a couple of shots. Are they better? If so, you need to examine your shooting technique.

Fuji s9100 Blurred view in the viewfinder but reads okl on lcd?


Look on the left side of the viewfinder - there's a small dial which you can rotate to adjust the viewfinder. I hope that's the problem. If not, please let me know, it's just that the problem description is quite poor.
