Question about Fuji FinePix F30 Digital Camera
I own a fuji finepix f30 and it was knocked off a table.It landed on the top right-hand corner and as a result there is a slight dent. It seems as if the dent has knocked the shutter botton out of place so that it does not function. I can look at pictures i have taken before-the screen still works etc etc but the shutter button does not so i am a stuck with a completly useless camera!!!
I need to get the camera fixed asap- do you think this is a difficult thing to fix? Is it advisable to send it back to fuji or do you think i can get it repaired quickly in a local repair shop? If so, can you reccomend any good repair shops in central london?
I had exactly the same problem as user astralbee. my fuji f30 dropped from a table, and i could only turn it on by play button, and look at the photos but can't turn it on by power button and take photos.
i simply buy a trigram screwdriver from ebay / shipped from hongkong for 1,5 euro. i simply pushed the second ribbon cable at the top a little bit to the mainboard, and voila! it works as new.

I had a very similar problem, only it was the power button that would not work. The camera would go into playback mode but would not switch on to take photographs. I followed Solution #2's advice - bought a trigram screwdriver (99cents / 50 pence from dealextreme.com), opened the case and there are two ribbon cables that connect the buttons on the top to the circuit board. They must jolt out really easily. I saw that one was slightly out, pushed it back in and now the camera works again. :)

My Shutter button would not work on a FX-F30 Fuji camera. Found this solution here and it worked!
opened the case and there are two ribbon cables that connect the buttons on the top to the circuit board. The right cable was not all the way in on the right side. Pushed it back in and now the camera works.

I also dropped my Fuji F30.
The half-press of the shutter didn't work anymore.
I bought a triwing / triblade screwdriver (about 5 euros) to open the case.
The flatcable running from the knobs on top of the F30 to the main print was a bit loose. After reconnecting it, the shutter button was fully functional again.
It seems that from the backside the rightmost 3 three wires in the flatcable are for the shutter, so if your cable is also a bit loose, this might solve the problem.

1. A local shop will most likely send it out or order a new camera case.
2. It is best you send it to an "authorized" Fuji repair shop.
3. I don't know of any local shops.
4. Here is their customer service link:
