SOURCE: shutter

try this:

1.turn on yer unit

2.press the menu button(if it gives you the "turn power off and on again message just switch to play mode or preview mode and access the menu from there.)

3.select setup(the option with the toolbox icon)

4.select setup 1 (not camera 1 ayt?)

5.select initialize and select OK for every prompt.

you\'ll know if you\'ve sucessfully initialized the camera if it will ask you to set the date and time.



if this does not work.... i guess it would be better to have th unit checked by an authorized serivicer.

Whiteout on fujifilm f20. how do I remove the lens?


Firstly, to isolate the shutter as the problem, turn the camera on and the flash off. put the lens into full optical (not digital) zoom. Then turn the camera lens to face you and look at the lens and take a picture.
With the camera in full optical zoom the shutter assembly will be right up to the outer lens so you can see it clearly. When the button is pressed you should see the shutter fire across the lens inside. It should cover the lens completely. If it does not or doesn't fire at all then you get over exposed pictures or lines across the photo. The most likely cause for this is moisture residue on the shutter leafs sticking them together.
To clean you will need to strip the lens down almost completely to access the shutter assembly. If this model of camera uses a sealed shutter unit then it will be impossible to clean. The only models i have found so far that use a sealed unit are the F460 and F470. Yours I am not sure of as I haven't opened 1 up but the solution for most is to strip it down and clean.
Tip: use another camera to photograph each stage to help on re assembly

LENS PROBLEM


The slightly open shutter is the reason for this problem. Thank God you mentioned it.
Solution: Try with your fingers to shift the shutter “blades” back and forth to see if they move freely. If they do no move freely it maens the shutter “blasdes” and stuck by particles/dust/something. So you just continue to shift them like that untill they are free again. Once they are free turn your camera back on and it should perform as normal.

Turn the power on and off again


I fixed this issue with my Sony Cybershot by gently (carefully) hitting the camera 3 times against a carpeted bench with the lens retracted and the camera turned off. It seems the lens gears were stuck. Now the camera works fine again.
