SOURCE: I need to Repair my Fujifilm Digital Camera

I had the same problem with my S3100. Last year I sent it back to Fuji and the power board had to be replaced. It cost around $80.00 to get fixed. I got the camera back last Xmas and I am having problems again. You can call 1-800-800-3854 and talk to their repair dept. I am going to replace mine, it is ridiculous that you spend all this money on a digital camera and then have continuous problems. I have always had Fuji cameras and liked them, but I think I am going to try another brand.

SOURCE: FUJIFILM 3X OPTICAL ZOOM FinePix 4.0 mega pixels digital camera A340 its about the xd-picture card 2GB

Be sure you have formatted the card, not the internal memory (if the camera has that).
Be sure your battery is fully charged, so that the device can fuly write the file.
Be sure you are writing the file to the card, and not the internal memory, as there may not be enough space on it to write the file.
If this does not resolve the problem, let me know.

Try buying lense cleaner to remove fingerprints, smudges and other 'particles' from the optical lense. Call Fuji, let them advise you.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix S5200. Need to know if there's an option to set a 2 second timer PERMANENTLY, and not have to set the 2 second timer every time i take one picture. Thanks -Leo

I'm sorry, but I don't believe that can be done. The settings for the timer should clear after you power cycle the camera. The timer is not the default setting, so it reverts.

Thank you.

I have no picture coming through on the screen or viewfinder, just hazy purple with jumpy lines. Fujifilm model#s5200. Pictures on card i can view. Any ideas? Rob from Ontario

That is strange, maybe taking the batteries out and putting them back in could reset the camera to normal. Electronic problems are real tough.

Power on to take picture, but view finder is dark, and snapping a picture, provides a black picture.

Probably the CCD is dead. It's a well known problem with S7000. It's a hardware problem, the CCD has to be changed. For S7000 it usually comes with the lens and it makes the repair quite expensive. It's about 250-300$ here. You should contact your local Fujifilm service center.
I work in a camera service center authorized by Fujifilm.

Sorry for the bad news!

This camera's playback function works through the lever around the shutter release button. Change it to picture taking mode (the red camera icon).
