FujiFilm FinePix A500 screen turns off when trying to take a picture

My camera turns off when I try to take a picture. I can push the power button and it will turn on just fine, but when I try to take a picture, the camera turns off. I can still scroll through my previously taken pictures, I just can't take new ones. My batteries cannot be the problem, because I just put new ones in four days ago. What could be the issue?

I had the same problem with a fujifilm finepix... It didn't take pictures with 2 sony batteries, just turned off after pressing the shutter. Then I tried 2 panasonic batteries and it worked fine....

My solution: try panasonic rechargeable.

I push the button but it wont take a picture


Did you try it like it is said in the manual? press the button half till the camera is focused and then press the button completely down?
Don't expect the camera to shoot with the same speed as a camera with film did. Give it some time to focus and everything will be fine (I hope)
If not let me know.

My fine pics camera is not uploading the pictures to my pc. It's saying connect camera and turn power on. Can you please tell me what the problem is


I think you are missing a step or pushing the wrong power button.

The sequence should go like this first make sure the batteries are up to power if there is an interruption the pictures could become lost and corrupt the memory card.

Turn the camera off, connect the USB cable to the computer USB port not a hub or keyboard port.

to turn the camera on Fine Pix Viewer will start and the save Image Wizard will display follow on screen instructions to download pictures.

To disconnect make sure the indicator lamp is off then press the same button for about a second to shut the camera off THEN disconnect the camera from the computer.
You should then format the memory card to begin fresh with a clean card and allow the camera and memory card to properly communicate between each other without errors.
Here is a diagram to show you were and how to format the card.

DSC-W150 SteadyShot says turn power on & off & lens pops in/out


I had the same problem with my Sony DSC-W150 camera. It turned out to have an easy fix. At the same time, press the power button and depress the shutter button halfway (the one you snap to take pics) as if you were trying to engage the autofocus without pressing the button down entirely. The lens will attempt to autofucus, which in my case was enough extra power to dislodge whatever debris/sand had clogged the lens. Hope this works for you!

The camera turns on when the power button is pushed the start up screen comes up then the camera shuts off. Battery is fine and can view photos on card. Help!


If you mean you no longer see anything on the screen. Try hitting the picture taking button slightly and the rear view screen should come on again. This is a energy saving setting and can be changed in the menu setup.

Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?


Hi Jeanice21, I just posted the same problem a few minutes ago with my SD400. I followed a few steps of the suggested solutions and here's what worked for me.

1) take apart the front and back by unscrewing the six screws holding the camera together
2) on the left of the flash, there are two little retangular holes with grooved dials in them
3) using a little flat head screwdriver, push up or down to turn the grooves while power up in the movie or capture mode
4) the lens retracted at this point and my camera started working again. Good luck!

Nikon coolpix s510 keeps turning on


See if there is a way to check out the power button. If the contacts are stuck in on position or unstable it is possible that the unit is behaving erratically. Try cleaning it out chemically if possible.

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display


It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
