Re: camera problems

The reason the camera may go off by itself is that battery low. Or, if you don't use it for a while, power saver kicks in.

If it turns off immediately, you may have problem with a short in power switch (if something was spilled on it). In this case, you can try to disassemble the camera, and clean the power switch with Q-tip dipped in alcohol.

The zoom browser does not recognise the camera is connected to PC

Windows updates change the registry. Sometimes this means our connected equipment no longer works. Now it is time for you to start using a separate card reader.

I take a picture and it doesn't appear to go to card

Your camera probably wants you to format the card in the camera to get it to work properly. This will erase the card so download any pictures first.

Did you transfer them to a computer? Sometimes that will automatically delete them. Did you go into the menu and accidentally erase them? It's hard to say what happened without knowing exactly what all was going on. It's usually not real easy to just erase pictures.

Can't take pictures.

try zooming in on a object and see it it get clearer. the problem is your zoom lens motor is stuck or malfunctioning. This is a very common problem with digital cameras. sometimes you can take compressed air and blow around the lens and clear the blockage or lightly tap the camera lens down with it off to free up the focus gear. if it does now work it then needs tobe serviced or repaired. I had the same model last week for the same problem. That lens had tobe replaced. but try that first and see if it helps.

Fuji FinePix 2600 Zoom Digital Camera Problem

If you have a card reader for your computer, see if the card works on your computer. If it does then try just using windows to format your card, sometimes after extensive use cards can have their contents table messed up with lots of pictures being erased and created. Otherwise try another card to see if it is the camera itself. If more than one card doesn't work its probably the camera, and unless you bought a extended service plan with the people you bought it from your probably be better off to buy a new camera then trying to get it fixed. Small electronics like cameras are very rarely cheap to fix and thats if the manufacturer will even consider doing it
