Fuji finepic F470 - Damage Ribbon cable for menu controls

I am unable to change any setting on my camera or zoom. I open the camera only to find that the ribbon cable for the menu, zoom, delete, timer etc. is broken. Can any say where I can get a new ribbon or how can I contact Fuji or a Fuji parts store.

thanks,
Gordon.

Has this camera encountered any water or moisture? Sounds like the Ribbon cable to the
option panel is either loose or has been compromised. It could have come loose after a
drop or hit, compromised cables are results of water damage or moisture damage.

Menu button is not working


My Optio E30 was not zooming because the small ribbon cable from the button strip was dirty/oxidized. All of the back panel buttons are on the same button strip. I needed to open the camera and remove the ribbon from the connector and gently clean the ribbon cable contacts with 600 grit sand paper. It now zooms perfectly.

Memory Full or something esle?


Can you use any of the buttons on the back? A common problem for this model is keypad failure due to the connecting ribbon strip splitting, over time, where it is folded over.
All the buttons on the back of the camera run off the same ribbon. Only the on/off and shutter/zoom button run from a different ribbon.
For the memory problem, this camera has an internal memory but it is very limited and requires an xd card to increase memory capacity. If you cannot use the keypad to view or delete pictures then try either connecting a usb cable to the camera and computer or removing the xd card and use a card reader to view pictures.
If your pictures are stored on the internal memory then obviously you will be unable to view them if your keypad is not working and only by connecting to your pc via a usb lead will you be able to upload and view your pictures. You should also be able to delete them from the camera when plugged into your computer once you have uploaded.

Switch Control unit, having Stop, Play, FF, Rew, Pause and Tele-Wide switch at top of camera is cause of this problem. Its ribbon wire has been damaged / cracked, going to camera board. You need to replace that complete part because ribbon wire is not available individualy.

None of the buttons work


The control panel circuit board may need to be changed, or there is a bad ribbon cable between it and the main processor board. It is also possible that the processor is at fault.

You should give the camera to Canon to have an estimate. You cannot fix this yourself. It involves changing parts and re-calibraiton.

Did you ever get the camera wet? Water damge can cuase this type of problem in a camera.

E18 ERROR SNAPPED RIBBON CABLE ON REPAIR ATTEMPT CAMERA WONT RUN NOW


Hello Dear,
You are requested to take the camera to the Canon Care Centre, but only if the Ribbon cable is removed from its locked it can be reinserted but if it is torn off, even after setting the zoom lense of your camera the Digital Zoom will not work and you will have to use the camera only with Optical Zoom.
Regards,
Manoj Joseph

Zoom lever (Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera ) does not work


If you can get to the ribbon cable that the zoom lever is attached to, you can use a multimeter or a continuity tester to see if the lever is actually shorting any traces on the ribbon. the zoom lever acts upon a motor that rotates the iner lens barrel, possible the motor lead is open or the switch under the lever is dirty/faulty.
