And after removing the battery, you first charged the battery before reinserting it?
Because when a camera suddenly stops, most of the time the battery is empty. At least it does not have enough power to work safely.
Try charging the battery, and reinsert it. Then I hope everything will look different.
Still it could be the battery is not in working order, but you should notice a different behaviour when charging it. If it almost takes as long as normal to charge the battery it should be ok.

SOURCE: camera frozen open, but isn't on

I also have this same problem - we bought a new camera after we were told that it would cost about the same to have it repaired as to buy new.

I own a Fugifilm digital camera that is frozen


It swounds like the system battery may need replacing.

This is separate from the usual batteries that you change and charge up. look on the base of the camera to find a round disk with a groove in it. Inside is a button battery CR2032 or similar. This is the battery that controls all the setting you have set for brightness contrast number continuity etc etc. replace this noting the way it came out + up or down and i think your problem may be solved for abot $4.00

please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

My zune froze when I turned it on. It is frozen on the Zune welcome screen with the loading bar at the bottom. I have tried the back and up button and it has not worked. I have also tried the back, up and...


There's a fix:

Your Zune will need a "hard reset."

To do this, use a small screwdriver to pop off the plastic shielding where the Zune cable plugs into and remove the two screws on either side of the plug. Next pop the cover off and locate the battery plug at the top left corner of the Zune, using your screw driver, pop the cable connection half way off, and do this to the other plug on the right side. Wait 3 seconds, then push down the right connector and then the left battery connector. Your Zune should start up immediately. Press the backing of the Zune down (make sure headphone jack is aligned) and put the screws and cover back in place.

It's an easy process but if you're unsure don't attempt it.

Camera Frozen in "On" Position


Hi, I read somewhere that this happens with alkaline batteries, but I have had the same problem with my rechargables (...don't use alkaline batteries in this camera). Anyway, removing the batteries with the camera in the off position and replacing them with fully charged ones usually clears the freeze. I also carry a spare CRV-3 just in case the rechargables go flat and this can help overcome the problem. Just don't leave it in the camera as they are too expensive to have it flatten them overnight!

I had the same problem with mine freezing. It happened when I kept pressing the back track button (on left side) to go back to an earlier song. It then froze in the middle of a song, couldn't hear the song, the time of the song was frozen, etc., and the unit stayed lit, despite pressing all the buttons. I tried holding down power but nothing happened. I read another person's post that you need to hold it down 15-30 seconds. I did this and it worked, you just have to hold it down until it shuts down, which was about 15 seconds as suggested, could be longer for others.
For me, next time I wont keep clicking the tracks repeatedly, I'll simply go out of the song and back to the song I want through the menu.
Thank you for the good posts. Glad I didn't have to mess with the battery like others....

Frozen?!


it locked up
although it may not sound safe, the only way to resolve or at least check camera condition further is to do a powercycle

remove the battery and card, wait for 10 seconds and but back the battery only - turn on the camera, check performance through internal and if ok, try it with the card
if not, go to www.kodak.com/go/itg for troubleshooting or repair
