Fuji finepix f11. When press the button to turn camera on the shutter does not open. The last few times its been turned on the shutter half opened and if switched off and then back on again it would open properly but now it just won't open at all. Will I have to take it to repairers and will it be a cost effective repair?

It's a little difficult with this camera since the slowest shutter speed is 3 secs. You need to have the timing right to get the best result:
Set mode dial to M, Select shutter speed with 4-way switch up and down : 3 secs. Now select Aperture: Hold down +/- button and select aperture with the same 4-way button, up and down. Choose F8, which is the smallest opening. You need to have the camera on a tripod when taking the picture. If the picture gets to dark, adjust the aperture. If it gets to light, you adjust the shutter speed, making the timing even more difficult.
It's called "shutter lag"...a common problem with all point and shoot cameras. To avoid it, press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way.
Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The
shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be
re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All
that is needed is the special screw driver for the F30 (easily
purchased online, just google it: "screw driver for fuji f30" ) or
bring it to your local watch/jewelry repair store and tell them to open
it up for you.
We have two F30's and they both have been
dropped, both did the same thing with the shutter button. But both were
easily fixed. Always keep the camera in a safe place and away from
kids, they are very sensitive devices. Use the wrist cord when taking
Hello, To solve this problem you need to use the SP shooting mode. Replace battery with new High power ones. and switch ON keeping pressed the PLAY Button. If still does not retract disable the flash and repeat the operation without the XD/SD Memory Card inserted. It will then close the shutter magic. Regards, PDG
turn the power on from the back. do not open shutter. press middle button menu/ok. the first selection to come up is the erase option framed in orange. there will be a trash can at the bottom. then use the button in between the zoom buttons to highlight the frames or all frames option then press ok. that should do it for you.
all figured out,,,,the shutter button is too close to the shut off button,its happened to me many times ,next time it happns try to catch yourself and see which button you pressed,,guaranteed!!! it sucks
I also dropped my Fuji F30.
The half-press of the shutter didn't work anymore.
I bought a triwing / triblade screwdriver (about 5 euros) to open the case.
The flatcable running from the knobs on top of the F30 to the main print was a bit loose. After reconnecting it, the shutter button was fully functional again.
It seems that from the backside the most 3 three wires in the flatcable are for the shutter, so if your cable is also a bit loose, this might solve the problem.
NB Remember to only open the backside of the casing, there is no need to open the lens-side. Opening and closing the backside is really easy and could be done by anyone with the right tools. (read screwdrivers...)
