Question about Fuji Cameras
What do I have to do to take night pictures with my new camera?
Taking pictures at night is just like taking pictures during the day, except it's darker. In order to get enough light to the image sensor, you need to either increase the sensor sensitivity (increase the ISO), open up the aperture (smaller f/numbers), use a longer exposure (which may require putting the camera on a tripod or other stable platform), or a combination of the three. Or put more light on the subject, perhaps by using the flash.
The flash on your camera doesn't put out very much light (when compared to the sun). You can't use it for subjects far from the camera, or when you want things at different distances illuminated evenly.
You didn't state the model of your camera so I'm afraid I can't tell you how to change any of the three settings I mentioned in the first paragraph.

Any auto camera like this is going to have trouble in dark light...
Photography is all about light, and in dark situations, compromise as well.
You best chance is to set the ISO up to the highest setting available, use flash, and a faster shutter speed, however, faster shutter speeds means less light can enter the lens, and hence give a darker image. Higher ISO makes the camera more sensitive to light, but produces grainier images as a result. Flash creates artificial light...
The only real way to get good images at a concert in the dark is with a high end camera, a lens costing many thousands of dollars, a tripod or monopod to steady yourself, and a longer open shutter time.
In the meantime however, experiment with higher ISO setting, flash and try to keep your hand steady at all times because the shutter speed needs to be slightly slower for the lens to capture more light.

Use the manual set up ( the small camera icon with the "M" next to it. Play around with the flash settings and set your flast to night. Check out the manual on this feature. I just got my 1700 last week. The Halloween photos were a lot of fun. Its also my first digital camera and there is a lot to learn. I read every thing I could find on the web prior to my purchase. I felt the MX1700 was the best value. So far this camera has met or exceed all my expectiations.

Keep the camera on AUTO, and refocus on every shot (push the button down until you see the green cross-hairs in the center of your subject - let up and then "snap" your photo).
To change the battery - open the door on the bottom right.
