Question about Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fuji won't stay on

The automatic shutoff feature turns camera off, as soon as I turn it on. If I'm lucky, sometimes can get 1 or 2 shots before it shuts off.
It does record pictures but, very frustrating.

Most likely explanation for this is the presence of dirt/sand in the lens unit and in the zoom motor/gearbox assembly which is part of the lens unit. When camera detects problem in the zooming process it will shut off.
Solution : will have to go in for service but should not cost you arm and a leg cause no spares are required to sort this problem out.

Hi Doug,
You are right in identifying the cause of the pre-mature shut-down of the camera during video recording. Battery saving features (auto-shut down) detect the camera as idle while you are recording. you could do two things to avoid this;
1. A short term practice is to manipulate the camera to stay on by using the zoom button, taking a snap-shot or anything like that from time-to-time, before the 2 minutes is up. This will keep the camera awake long enough for you to record a good length of video.
2. The second and permanent option is to program the camera - just as you mentioned. You can do that by opening the menu and under camera setting , scroll down till you find the auto-power save. Change the time to your preference

Please note: You have to switch off your camera as soon as practicable while the auto-switch-off time is set at a bigger value to conserve the battery. otherwise the battery will be drained quicker than you imagine.

I hope this helps.

FujiFilm fine Pix A 345. Lend won't open upon turning on camera. Camera makes a buzz noise and then the display reads zoom error.


Those things get stuck.

You have to mess with it until it comes unstuck, if it even does.

Try hitting it while you are turning it on. Tap it from all sides and directions.

You might get lucky.

I got mine to come back to life temporarily.

Please don't give me a thumbs down just cause its bad news.

SOMETIMES IT SWITCHES OFF EVEN IF BATTERY IS CHARGED. and the internet connection problem


Most if not all digital cameras have an auto shutoff feature which will turn the camera off after a set period of inactivity in order to conserve battery life. You may be able to modify the setting in the camera preferences to a longer period, depending on the camera, but as far as I know, there is no way to disable the auto shutoff.

Hope this helps.

I can turn the camera on and when I go to take a picture it takes one and turns off.. on the four indicator lights the far left one blinks yellow..


Hi Dear,

This issues seems to be because of discharged battery. As the battery is not charged enough to take more than one shot. Hence it automatically switches off you camera after one shot.
Please change your battery to full, and then try to take some shot.

Let us know if the problem persist.

Have a nice day.

The pictures i take are blury how do i fix it


If you don't know how to use the manual focus switch it to auto focus, Check the MACRO feature, try to capture photos about 2 inch or 4 inch nearby the object, if the shots are clear and shooting in distant objects are blurred meaning you have set your camera to MACRO setting, Turn off the Macro feature

Fuji FinePix 2650 slowing down


I would say that if you've had the camera for five years, it's possible that it could be wearing out. My first inclination would be to tell you to try lithium batteries but from the sounds of it, you already have. If that hasn't worked, then it may be time to try a new camera. There are a lot of really nice cameras out there for $200 or less. They'll have a lot of new features and the resolution will be clearer.

F710 turn off


THIS MAY NOT SOILVE THE PROBLEM ... BUT MAY DELAY YOUR CAMERA GOING TO THE "OFF" MODE. TURN CAMERA ON AND HIT "MENU" ... SCROLL DOWN TO "SET-UP" THEN SCROLL TO "LCD POWER SAVE" SWITCH IT TO "OFF". I HAVE A FUJI 650 AND I LOVE IT ... THATS HOW I GOT MINE TO STOP SHUTTING DOWN BETWEEN SHOTS.
