Question about Fuji FinePix E500 Digital Camera

Fuji FinePix E550 got wet

It was set down, then I turned on the sprinklers. It got soaked. I took out the batteries and card, opened the flash and let it dry over several days. It appeared to work. Now, two weeks later, I tried to take a picture OUTSIDE, and it's not working. Inside pics are fine. Any lights or bright sunlight and the pic is washed out and has lines in it.
Any ideas?

I was recently given the FinePix E550 by someone who had purchased a newer camera. I do not have the usb cord to download pix and my Dell 942 All-in-One will not recognize the camera card. What do I need...


Hi

The problem you are experiencing with your Fuji FinePix E550 could be down to a number of reasons.

You do not say the memory card size you are using but the Dell 942 will probably only read cards xD-Picture Cards 1Gb or lower.

It maybe a better idea to remove the xD card from the camera and use a USB card reader to take the images off the card. Alternatively you could buy a replacement USB cable

Hope the suggestions help.

My daughter has the fuji finepix that is white with pink polka dots. she took it to the beach and it was wrapped up in a towel, the tide came in and got the towels a little wet but not soaking wet, she...


you did good and removing the battery and memory card was also a good idea....leave the unit for a couple days the way it is...check later to see if there is any white or green residue(powder) or rust looking areas around the memory card and battery location...if it seems clear then it should be fine, if you see any type residue, then water got into the unit and is starting to corrode it...which means 2 things...either buy a new one or you can still try to salvage this one by having it opened and cleaned out with acetone and dried up completely..then for sure it will be good to go..but first try what I suggested

Dropped my e550 in the river


I'm afraid so. The insides of these types of cameras are very compact, with layers of circuitry and connections. You might have been able to save it (a slim chance at best ) if you had gotten it to a repair shop or removed the covers and dried it quickly.

I have rescued cel phones (my own), film SLR camera and lens from water damage, but they were still wet when I started. Your Fuji would be a pain to take apart since they used the tri-head screws on that model

Depressing my shutter button on my Fuji FinePix E550 causes it to turn off. When I turn it back on there is a no image message. Is it cheaper to buy a new camera than to have it fixed? Thanks for help


You just need new batteries. That's what the E550 does when the batteries get too low. Please get the latest rechargables. Many of the ordinary AA batteries won't last 50 pictures. Fuji also is rather poor telling you how to charge the rechargables. When the screen goes blue when you take a picture, you must use the camera's de=charging system before recharging--otherwise the rechargables will not take a full charge--that's what's likely happened to you!
