Question about Fuji FinePix S3100 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Fuji FinePix S3100 will not turn on.

The camera just will not turn on. It is about three years old and is a nice size to handle, plus the menus are large enough for a gramma to read and I love the camera. But now it just does nothing.

    I have the same problem and from reading the other comments it is quite common. I replaced the batteries as well and nothing. Has anyone heard if there is a recall for these? Hartyrr

    My 2005, S3100 Camera just would not turn on. I took it back after 9 months, they sent it to repair, and about 2 months later I got it back. 2 weeks later it would not turn on again. The retailer (RS) manager gave me another one. While I was there another customer was having the same no power problem. On 12/23/08 I put fresh batteries in my S3100, no power again. Went to the holiday function without my camera. This morning I adjusted the mode switch to auto, and set the power off, then put new batteries in, flipped the power to view and It turned on. I tried all the modes and it appears to work properly. I hope this may help some of you with the same problem; it is at least worth a try. I would think with me personally seeing this 3 times and witnessing the other customer’s problem while in the (RS) store. Shouldn’t there be a recall from Fuji, or is this planned product obsolescence?

    Me mother and I both purchased this camera at the same time. And both cameras stopped working at the same time. Is this some kinda "Y2K" bug?

Sorry, no real solution. My friends have one that would not turn on and they left it without batteries for a month, then put the batteries in and it worked. Mine has failed and will not turn on. I have left the batteries out but nothing has miraculously fixed itself yet. May have to send it in to Fuji.

Download pitures to hardrive

Plug the camera into the computer using the USB cable. Open My Computer. There will be a new drive listed there, that is your camera. Open the drive, your photos will be in folders -- just save them to your My Picures (or whatever folder). It is possible, if you have autorun enabled, that you will get a wizard open when you plug in the USB cable-- you can also just follow the choices there as to how you want the computer to handle your photos. Hope this helps.
