It appears that the software crashed. Take the batteries and the memory card out, press the on/off button as if you are turning the camera on (this is to drain any residual power in the camera). Leave it for a few moments (10-20 seconds) then put the batteries and the card back in and restart the camera. If the camera has a reset button or reset hole try this too. Good luck.

Try Power Resetting the Camera. To Power Reset the Camera, First, please turn OFF the Camera. Then, remove the battery pack from the Camera. Then, press and hold the POWER button on the Camera for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the battery pack and check whether the issue is resolved.
I took the ****** apart and found two spring-loaded black triangular plastic pieces poking out of two rectangular chips about 2mm square, just below the circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes mode – play, video, camera. Actually I found one of the above, because the second triangular piece was stuck in the closed position. A bit of jiggling and voila the problem was fixed.
That was the good news. The other news is that I must now reinsert inside of the shell a black circular piece of plastic that affixes to the rotating circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes the mode. When properly attached this circular piece manipulates the triangular pieces to change the mode.
I think that the likelihood of getting this piece properly aligned and affixed so that it moves the triangular pieces properly when the mode knob is rotated falls into the statistical probability range of pork taking wing. But worth a try.
The ribbon cable for the top switches has come loose.Undo the four screws holding the LCD screen (two are special--I used the corner of a small flat screwdiver), then gently prise the camera apart and try not to dissconnect the ribbon cable for the menu buttons --it's a pain to get back on again. Gently ease the ribbon cable for the top switches further into the socket and all shout be well---if it is hard to move flip open the black locking flap on the socket
The sliding button above the LCD display has three settings. You need to slide the button to the right, A camera icon for taking pictures, a movie camera in the middle and the green arrow on the left to view pictures and movies taken
you need to open the camera caseing a small amount. As you put the case back make sure the switch is in the movie position so it will engage the switch inside on the circuit board.
Looks like the switch has been knocked off the control inside.If you have been moveing the switch back and forward you may have broken it.
If you remove the back cover you will see that there is a switch on the main board wich changes the operation mode for the camera. It's normal position is "movie mode". On the back of the camera there is a know which changes the position of the mode switch - most likely that knob is damaged and would need to be replaced in order to resore normal operation to the camera. Please be aware that Fuji uses special security screws for the camera case to dicourage people from opening the cameras. With the right tools and replacement part this is an easy repair - I could do it for about $30, including shipping back to you - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested, or I could also buy your camera as is.
