Question about Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera
Camera turns on and works fine in playback mode. But as soon as you press the shutter button, the power goes off leaving a blank screen. We went to the beach last fall -- could it be sand? However, the camera worked fine until just a few months ago. Wanted to open it up to see if I could see any sand, but don't have a screwdriver small enough to do the job. Any suggestions?? Need to get it fixed quick with the holidays coming up!
For some reason, Fuji does not emphasize that if your batteries get low, this is what happens. You just need recharged batteries or new batteries. Be careful with rechargables--before recharging them when this happens, you first have to drain them using the discharge mode of your camera. Then they will take a complete charge. (Good for some 300 charges or so, I believe.) But if you don't discharge them first, they will take less and less of a charge, and last shorter and shorter. If you use regular batteries, they might not last for 50 pics before running out of juice.
