Re: fuji e550

This sounds like there is an internal short which is draining the batteries as soon as you put them in. Were the cameras taken in from the cold to a warm room? that will cause internal condensation which can fry the interior. Clean out the battery compartment completely, be sure no metal is floating around in there, and be sure that you have the polarity of the batteries correct. If that doesn't help, send the camera back to Fuji if in warranty.

My fuji E550 lets me view pictures but WIL NOT LET ME TAKE THEM! help would be very very appreciated

This is most likely an issue with the camera's image sensor. Your camera will need to be repaired by an authorized Fujifilm service center. Contact Fuji though as sometimes they have service advisories for issues such as this.

Depressing my shutter button on my Fuji FinePix E550 causes it to turn off. When I turn it back on there is a no image message. Is it cheaper to buy a new camera than to have it fixed? Thanks for help

You just need new batteries. That's what the E550 does when the batteries get too low. Please get the latest rechargables. Many of the ordinary AA batteries won't last 50 pictures. Fuji also is rather poor telling you how to charge the rechargables. When the screen goes blue when you take a picture, you must use the camera's de=charging system before recharging--otherwise the rechargables will not take a full charge--that's what's likely happened to you!

Camera will playback but wont take pictures

I found that the e550 eats batteries very quickly if the memory card is full (or nearly so).  I have installed a 512MB XD card.

Overexposure and vertical lines

My E550 started producing over exposed frames (everythings white except maybe across top) with lines.This just happens outside.On inside the pictures are great.
