Question about Cameras

When i turn on my fujifilm S5000 in photographic mode, it moves the lens out, but when the lens is out, the camera shuts down and the lens stays out. Anyone knows what that might be? I tried new batteries but the problem stays. greetz, Gerard

Hello Gerard

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

My view screen is white but I am able to view my pictures on my memory card


Most likely a dead CCD (imager) unit. Happens to these cameras. Usually they are supplied with the lens and are expensive if ordered from Fujifilm - could be about $200-300. I wouldn't recommend using used parts because they could break down again sooner or later. I suggest you buy a new camera.
I have worked for Fujifilm.

Keeps saying to turn off camera and won't take pictures


What the troubleshooting guide suggest is to turn off the camera and turn it back on which sound like what you have been doing. The cause of this generally points to a camera malfunction between the camera and lens. This makes me believe that either something is restricting the lens from moving like the lens cap is tethered to the camera and tight on the lens so it can't do it's "pre" view and goes into the shut down mode. If the lens has any restriction be it the lens cap, ever ready case or anything that is restricting the lens movement remove it and try it again. I have another theory which is completely opposite to anything even suggested and that is the camera can't read the SD card so goes into shut down mode. If you remove the SD card and check to make sure the "lock" switch is in the unlock position. I'll give you a diagram for this.
The little switch needs to be pushed forward towards the gold contacts.

Fujifilm S5000 model, works well but have picture problems.


You want to set the focus mode to S-AF, then move the focus mode selector to the lock position.
Hopefully that will fix the problem.
