Fuji F650 won't turn on

My Fuji F650 just stopped working - went to turn it on yesterday and nothing happened. Recharged the battery, tried again, still nothing. I wonder if the switch on the battery/memory cover has malfunctioned since the camera is designed to not turn on if that cover is open.

Had the same problem.

I 'fixed' it by connecting it to the computer by the usb cord.

Hit the power button, turned on. Works properly (for now).

Re: Fuji F650 won't turn on

Check the underside of the battery door. There should be an "L" shaped tab which presses on the shut-off switch. These are often broken off when closing the compartment. If it's broken off, you can defeat the switch by stuffing a piece of paper in it, and then closing the door (with battery installed). If the tab's not broken, you're probably in need of the service department.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format.

Zoom on fuji f650 stuck

Hi Sandra, Try power reset for your camera. Turn the camera on, and without turning the camera off, open the battery door and take the batteries out. Leave it for a minute or two. This helps camera get reset and helps correct the basic functionality and also zoom error. Hope it helps u otherwise u will have to take it to authorised repair center. Good Luck.

Battery fully charged but cannot use camera. Applied new batteries works in review mode only Fuji Fine Piix F420

My camera had a similar problem. It would work only in review mode and as soon as photo/film mode was selected it went dead. What I did was 'discharge' the battery totally and then fully recharged it. This can be done by going to Menu-Option-Setup-Discharge. After I had done this the camera stopped going dead but the battery still had a very poor lifespan. I bought a new battery and now the camera works as new. Hope this helps-Steve.
