Question about Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera

Camera/screen works in playback but not in camera mode

posted by jlr1205 on Oct 27, 2007 Report abuse

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!

    same problem with my e550

  • dlhiggy Nov 03, 2007

    I took 5 pictures OK and then when I pressed the shutter button, everything went blank. I put in a different memory card--the same thing happens. Every time I push the button to take a picture, it's as if I had turned the power off.

This always happened to me when my batteries were low. Disappeared as soon as I changed them.

Canon 60D playback images turning up black


Did you switch to Tv (shutter mode) and took pictures for several seconds? like in the dark? Because saving the picture can take as long as the shutter time was.
Before panic. (Actually you never should panic) check your camera in automatic mode. And make sure you did not select any power save action, that puts your display on dark while shooting.
But always be sure your battery is charged and check its capacity. In the menu yo can check under the wrench symbol, when you select Battery info. Page 268 of the manual.
Working with a bad battery can damage the camera in the end.

Tapes won't Playback in other deivice


Hello! If the recorded tapes playback ok on the camera and not ok on another devices, you need to readjust the playback on this camera using a tape which playbacks fine on the other devices. This means that is a small difference on the tape transport. So when the supply and takeup post rollers readjusted and the audio and video playback are good, then your camera is fine.

Screen works in playback mode but turns off in camera mode as if batteries are going dead.


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.

Camera turns off


CCD sensor is faulty and the sound you hear is camera switching off lens after no signal from CCD block is delivered to the main CPU. CCD has to be replaced and should be done free of charge if the camera is newish and has not been abused ( you bought it with poorely manufactured CCD sensor which should last 15 years ).
