    ps. I took the battery and sim card out overnight, but still it did not work. Also the odd thing is that the video option still works and I can see all previous photos on the camera. It just won't allow me to take new photos. The camera is only 10 months old and hardly used.

  • Harrie Apr 24, 2014

    When this was my camera? I think I tried to clean the shutter button area, with Some pressed air. But because the camera is not yet one year old, I would-be go back to the shop, or contact a Fuji certifieer repair centre. It could be you solve the problem for two or there months and When you don't have any warrants, the error could return.

    rebecca Apr 24, 2014

    Yes I think that is the best solution. Since I bought the camera in Australia and now I live i Nice France, do you know how I can find out where a fuji certified repair centre is here in Nice?

  • Harrie Apr 24, 2014

    I don't know how it is arranged in France. My best guess is to contact Fujifilm direct and ask their advice. Perhaps they already point out on the website where you can get service. To my knowledge your warranty in Europe is 2 years, so even being close to a year, having the camera, it should be warranty.

While you took out the sim card, I think you mean the memory card, did you switch the lock switch to the lock? Or is it in another position (half way) and not in the position, so the camera sees it is allowed to write on the card?
Are you sure the card has enough space to store pictures?

    Thanks for your valuable comments. Sorry I meant memory card. Unfortunately there is still plenty of space left on the card and I even deleted some photos from it to ensure it wasn't that. The switch on the memory card is also in it's correct unfortunately it can't be that. I also took the memory card out and tried to take a photo using the phone memory - but I still have the same problem ie when I click on the shutter button it won't take a photo. Everything else on the camera works - the zoom in/out, the video, all menu settings can be changed etc. Hence I can't work out what happened overnight whereby it was working perfectly the day before and then it just stopped taking photos

  • Harrie Apr 24, 2014

    Rebecca, You keep calling this camera a phone. Although still no phone can take pictures of the same quality. being it a new camera, not much van be wrong. If you took out the memory card, while inserting it, there coud be a little spec of dust between the contacts. But if it is not possible to make any pictures to the internal memory, we have to dismiss everything about the memory. The only thing I now can think of, is the camera is not focusing correct. You still can check if the shutter button works correct. Please check if your camrea is in automatic mode. Then, with enough light, point the lens to a subject with lots of contrast. Then press the shutter button half way. When the lens is moving, the button works half. Wait till you hear a bouble beep. then the camera is in focus and you can press the button complete. As long as you get a warning !AF in red on the display, the camera can't focus and you cant make a photo. Let me know if you come a step further? it is very difficult to help, as long as you don't have the camera in your hands, so you be my hands and eyes on this. success

    after I wrote back to you this morning I tried to take some photos and it started working again and took about 10 photos. However it then stopped working. I tried again about 2hours later, and it took 2 photos and then stopped again.

  • rebecca
    rebecca Apr 24, 2014

    Now it isn't working again. It is in shooting mode: SR Auto.

    I tried your focus test. It note that initially it seems to 'slightly' focus itself without me even touching the shutter button. When I press on the shutter button there are no noises and I can't see any difference in picture when I press half way down or the full way.

  • rebecca
    rebecca Apr 24, 2014

    nor is there any red !AF icon

  • rebecca
    rebecca Apr 24, 2014

    I tried the focus test again- this time it gave me the double beep sound and allowed me to take the photo

  • rebecca
    rebecca Apr 24, 2014

    This is the normal way it use to take photos - now it has gone back to just a nothing response (no noise/ no focus / no half way shutter button reaction)

SOURCE: 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!!!

An update to the initial posting. As a warranty service provider, I can state that physical damage as a result of mis-use is NOT covered under warranty. Lens problems caused by dropping the camera are considered mis-use and are not covered. There is a good posibility that the lens assembly is just out of timing and can be rebuilt, but the cost to do this will not be paid by the manufacturer.

I don't want you to believe that this repair will be for free as it will not.

SOURCE: Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time for new batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

My focus button keeps sticking on my Fujifilm S2000HD camera.?

Have you tried focusing before you take a photo? To do this, press down the shutter button on your camera but don't push it far enough to take a photo. This enables the camera to focus on what it's about to photograph before you press the shutter button again and take the photo.

Normally there are two reasons for the given problem.

1). Bad or defective CCD. and/or

2). shutter not working.

in the first case the only solution is the replacement of the CCD.
Please click HERE

And in the later case sticking of shutter blade, non functioning of shutter blade will cause the problem. This can be rectified by sending it to some repairer.

Why Fuji Finepix XP20 won't take photos?

Check the settings of the camera. Put the recording mode for stills (photos) to auto, so the setting can't stop the camera from taking a picture. If you are in one of the manual modes, and the system calculates it won't be possible to make a picture (to dark, to light, or out of focus and so on) it won't react when you press the shutter release button.
Please use the manual, so you will be able to solve this every time it happens to you. The manual is still online.

Fujifilm finepix f20le. circular grainy pic loss of sound

First go to the SETUP menu and make sure that the PLAYBACK VOLUME setting is set to a value greater than 0. Try increasing the shutter speed of any photos as CCD's will notoriously produce grainy images on slow shutter speeds. Grainy videos will indicate poor light, camera shake during filming or moving too quickly so the autofocus cannot function correctly, or using too low a resolution and will be especially noticeable at 640 x 480 when viewed on a large high resolution screen. If all the above make no difference then you may need to get the camera serviced.

You have over exposed pictures due to the shutter sticking.
The video is the clue to the problem. It doesn't use the shutter.
Shutter needs to be cleaned. This is no easy task im afraid
