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 most 3 three wires in the flatcable are for the shutter, so if your cable is also a bit loose, this might solve the problem.

NB Remember to only open the backside of the casing, there is no need to open the lens-side. Opening and closing the backside is really easy and could be done by anyone with the right tools. (read screwdrivers...)

The shutter did not work at all.
After reconnecting the flat cable the camera is fully functional again.
I did not used the triblade screwdriver, just small flat from a good precision screwdriver set.
Thank you.

How do you replace top plate on fugi finepix E900


Does the dial selector and shutter button work? All are linked to the main board by a flexi circuit. Problems resulting in failure include - water/moisture damage, worn or damaged flexi circuit, micro button or the flexi circuit has partially come out of its socket. Spares available.

Fuji Finepix F30 Suddenly takes only all pink screens (no image)


This sounds like one of two problems -
Either an LCD screen problem or a bad CCD sensor.
A LCD screen problem would indicate one of two of the following - it was cracked, or the cable inside is either damaged or moved out of the plug and need to be reseated.

A bad CCD sensor would show a pink screen on cameras, but would also show menus on the screen as well, do you see those? The CCD basically captures the image the lens is seeing and translates it to an image the camera can save. Generally the CCD can not be replaced separately from the lens and will require an entire lens assembly for repair.

Fuji FinePix F30 shutter problem: won't take pictures


Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All that is needed is the special screw driver for the F30 (easily purchased online, just google it: "screw driver for fuji f30" ) or bring it to your local watch/jewelry repair store and tell them to open it up for you.

We have two F30's and they both have been dropped, both did the same thing with the shutter button. But both were easily fixed. Always keep the camera in a safe place and away from kids, they are very sensitive devices. Use the wrist cord when taking photos.

My Fuji Finepix F30 has a broken shutter button. The problem seems mechanical, because it won't work in any mode. Can it be repaired?

Fujifilm FinePix S1000FD shutter button won't focus


There is an option in the menu to put camera on continuous auto focus. You must have the camera on manual setting to have this option available, but once selected, it should stay on in auto setting. It will wear the battery faster, but it should solve the issue you are having. Hope this helps!!!

Shutter opening problem


How hard did you press on the button? it will focus if not all the way. Also, check your battery. Other than that, I don't know.

Maybe it the connector inside is loose, you might try to open the case (a 5 euro triblade / triwing screwdriver is needed) and see if any of the connectors is loose, before sending it for a 160 euro repair.

Shutter release button


Fraid not. It is increasing the case now that -with the exception of warranty work repairs are not feasible - The technology and models change so much are are no spares for older kit. A repair shop will cost you -packing shipping and inspection fee plus packing and shipping back to you with little prospect of a repair Money best put toward the next-more up to date camera in my view
