Question about Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I dropped my camera in water, the lense got moisture in it but was working right away. I had opened the inside of the camera to make sure nothing got wet. I set it out to dry. The lense is dry of moisture but the buttons wont work and the camera wants me to input the date. But, since the buttons won't work I can't, and now I can't take picutres.

Get a new camera - you will have other problem besides the obvious ones. Liquid will produce corrosive material after it drys and remain in the camera and will be difficult to remove later.

My camcorder was some time without use and now when i turn it on i cant see the picture from the lens. Seams that somthing is blocked inside. Is there a solution?


Dust in the front and back elements are easy to remove, you can do it by yourself with the help of a right tool. it is also possible that lens got affected with fungus due to moisture and dust. you should make sure your camera is weather protected. Overall, one of the best ways to control moisture is to keep small packets of "Silica Gel" desiccant inside the case with each lens.
you need to go to your local professional camera store and purchase lens cleaners. These are special clothes and cleaning solutions that you use to clean the lenses and have them streak free. In fact, even if your lenses are not dirty right now they're still a good thing to have on hand. Your lenses will eventually get dirty and if you have the cleaners then you can clean them instantly.

Lense sticking with good battery?


If you have a Kodak EasyShare V603 and have the lense sticking or not retracting all the way when you power down with a known good battery, this tip may save the day for you ...

Note I said MAY save the day, NOT "will" ... Nothing in life is certain ...

The extending/retracting lense assembly is very sensitive to dust or foreign material. If even the slightest amount of dust... pocket lint, anyone?... gets inside the camera housing in the area of the lense mechanism, the sticking can occur...

the solution is to undo the screws holding on the front half of the housing and get that shell out of the way... then run a clean q-tip around the outer rim of the lense assembly ...

filthy, isn't it? ... now repeat... once your q-tip comes up clean, blow away any residual dust. The jury is out on whether alcohol helps at all here ...

Repeat the procedure to clean the opening in the camera housing through which the lense extends as well ...

Reassemble the housing and you MIGHT be good to go ...

Of course, if you dropped the camera into the La Brea Tar Pits, don't expect a miracle, but this procedure can get rid of a surprising amount of dirt & dust that can build up inside the camera from carrying it in your pocket or purse ...

I DID say you need a known good battery, right ? oh, and it helps if it is fully charged too ...

Worked for me !

Remove moisture inside Olympus digital camera


Place it in a sealed container covered in rice for a few days. The rice will absorb the moisture. Works on cell phone dropped on water too.

A little water got into my camera lens now it can't take photo in the properly inthe day it is all white, in the night its a little better but still not perfect


first thing if you got water in your camera, take out the battery, open the battery chamber, dry it with fan for a night or if you have silica gel, put in a lot of silica gel in a plastic bag with the camera inside it for a night, silica gel will absorb the water.

Moisture light wont go out


There can be only one reason, there is still moisture inside it. You should not have operated it for 3-4 days, so that it can get dried fully.

The problem is when i switch my camera on, on the


ok so I was searching for the answer for this myself.. very hard to say, because it really depends on what happened to your camera.. Did you drop it? Did it emerge in water? But for me, I have come to the conclusion for everyone who has the problem.. it is most (99%) probably a problem with the lense.. another site told me to take it to get fiixed- or to take the battery out and wait 20 min to put it back in, because this resets it. I decided to manually open the lense myself (who knows if thats bad/good to do, but a girl's gotta take her pix!!) So anyway, i opened the lense, and turned it on- the "on again off again" msg went away. So most likely, the problem does stem to the lense not being able to be opened, so the msg pops up, if you open the lense yourself your camera works fine, when you turn it off- my closes the lense-just doesnt open it. different results for different people, but i hope this helps because it was very simple.

The lense will come out


Lens problems can be caused by a number of happenings. If the camera has been dropped, or some kind of impact such as when in a purse or pocket, then being hit which may not seem much at the moment, but can cause problems.
Lens problems can also be the result of something such as water damage to the camera. If any moisture has been introduced into the internal parts of the camera, damage can result, some of which can cause problems to the lens controls or circuits. Any debris such as sand, dirt or dust can cause damage to the internal workings of the lens.
If nothing works, the camera is only good for parts or repair and can be sold for such on sites such as Ebay.
Always use a padded camera bag such as a zipped type. Also it should always be a common practice to use extra care in the use of such electronic and mechanical devices.

Camera got dropped now it won't turn on.


The only way to sort it properly is to dismantle and reassemble. Because it has sustained damage you will have to check for any internal damage caused by the drop. Now the lens is jammed open would suggest the guide pins have either come out of their slots preventing movement or something is obstructing them.

Dropped camera. lens open and crooked


Sorry to say you have broken the lens, replacement of the lens is the only practical repair and if you cant swap one yourself from a dead camera it would be beyond economical repair.
If you are adventurous you could buy a faulty one of ebay and swap the lens or if the faulty one has a broken screen or mode dial swap yours over to the faulty one..
there are a couple of "tricks" do getting this camera open drop me a line if you decide to proceed...

best of luck
