After taking a picture, the camera made a fizzling sound and the screen went blank. It stopped responding to any buttons and is locked in the on position with thwe lens out. I've used this camera for three days with joy and success, and was on my third x-mas pic when it quit. I've taken about 50 - 60 shots in all. I've tried replacing the batteries, with no results.
I just fixed it!, you need to use rechargable batteries, i had it set on rechargable and when i put alkalines in it it made that noise, but when i put rechargables back in it and gave it a slight pat against my hand to make sure nothing was loose inside it came back on and works fine!

I will second that. I can't seem to find a solution for the exact same problem. I tried to take a picture but does not respond, If I take the batteries out and put them back in as soon as I turn it on it takes a picture, then doesn't respond again. AHHHHHHH. Ive only had this camera for about 18 months and I'm so disappointed. I had a fujifilm 5600 Which I passed onto my sister we both have never had a problem, it's 5 years old now and still going strong, Now my camera is wiggin out and I need it to work ASAP CAN ANYONE HELP US
Are you formatting the card in the camera as you're supposed to? Have you tried going into the menu and finding "reset" and followed the on-screen instructions? Do you have photos on the internal memory? If so, remove your card and format the camera to erase the memory.
There is a diaphram between the shutter button and the shutter that does the focus. Pushing the button half way down pre-focuses and then the picture is instantanious. If the diaphram is broken it take a while before the shutter takes the picture. One of the AA batteries may be defective so try another set and see if that is better. There is also a slight possibility that the secondary battery (hidden within the camera) has gone bad.
The only way this could happen is if there's no memory card in the camera.
Easiest solution is to take the camera with you to Best Buy, hand it to someone in the digital camera department, and ask them for a compatible memory card. They'll most likely respond asking you how many pictures you want to store on it. You'll respond accordingly, hand him/her a debit/credit card, and be on your way.
I had an older nikon and it gave me that same problem, I was told that it was the internal lenses getting stuck. If that is what your problem is, then take the camera while it is off and slam it against the palm of your hand, I know it sounds pretty weird, and I was nervous to try it, but after a couple of hard hits to the hand, it turned on and stayed on perfectly.
I need more information about what symptoms you are experiencing.
I am going to guess that your shutter is stuck closed. This would cause a blank image to show on the view screen and your captured pictures. The regular icons and text would still display normally. Is this what you are seeing? If not please explain further what is happening and I will respond again with more information.
