You may not be able to. However let us try. Reset all menus to default, or factory settings. Another way to do it, possibly is to remove all batteries and let the camera sit for at least 24 hours, then put the batteries back in and try it.
You may need repairs.

Hello

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.

Regards
Andrea

I don't know if there is a function to do this on your camera, but on the cameras I am familiar with, there is not.

However, if what you want to accomplish is to get your pictures from internal memory into your computer, there is a way. Simply remove the memory card from your camera before connecting the camera to your computer. The computer will then see the camera's internal memory instead of the card memory, and you can copy the pictures over.

If you have been accessing your pictures by removing the card from the camera and placing it in a card reader attached to your computer, then this won't work for pictures in the internal memory. You will need to use the other method, connecting the camera to the computer with the USB lead.

Take a small flash light and see if there is a part of a memory card in there, if there is cleaning it out would solve the problem. Also make sure you're putting the memory card in the right way. I've you've done that and it's still giving you problems try going into the menu's and formatting the memory card in the camera.

I cannot clear Protected card message from my memory cards on my s5700 model. I have tried everything, including resetting but stii does not work. Is there a problem with the camera?


Look at your memory cards. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Will sdhc card work in my fuji s700 camera


The SDHC memory card is a newer version of the SD card and will fit in the memory card slot. However the maximum memory capacity your camera is capable of is 2gig, beyond this the card may not work. You may be able to extend this capacity with a firmware update from the Fuji site.
The SDHC memory card has a lock the same as your SD card here is a diagram to make sure the lock is in the correct position for use. Remember also to format the new card and format after each download of pictures to the computer.

I get a card reader come up on the lcd screen of my fuji finepix s 1600 camera how do i fix this ?


Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Do download them through the usb port and cable or do you insert the memory card itself? Try inserting the card into the computer slot and see what is on it. Also try installing the camera software disc again, it might be missing some files. Upgrade the software from the net also, if it gets too old like the one from an older Fuji, they no longer support it.

Fuji xd memory card


I had same problem especially in flash mode. I changed SD Memory card and it is now 100% good. You must always use Premier brand cards, cause others may cause problems. You must als format your card first, before changing it.

Memory Card problems


It may sound stupid and obvious but try just taking the memory card out, give it a bit of a blow/wipe and putting it back in again, worked for me when my s5700 said it had a full card or that there was some other problem with the card
