On the back there should be a small button above and to the right of the LCD screen that says EVF/LCD. You might try pressing it to change it, this is provided you can see through the viewfinder already.
"If the digital camera will not turn on, run through the "Checklist" given below.
If this does not solve the problem, take the camera, the batteries, and the AC Power Adapter to an authorized FUJIFILM service center for testing and repairs.
1. The direction of your battery might be wrong. Confirm it and put it again.
2. Load new or fully charged batteries.
3. The battery terminals may be dirty in a way that cannot be seen (fingerprints, etc.). Wipe the terminals clean with a soft cloth.
4. Press the Power button again firmly."
Cleaning the battery contacts sounds worth a try.
Fuji also say;
"Please use only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries with Fujifilm digital cameras
Please note that instruction manuals provided with Fujifilm digital cameras recommend that only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are used with those digital cameras which require AA or AAA type batteries. If other types of batteries are used together with an AC adaptor, this may result in the rare occurrence of the battery overheating. Please do not use batteries other than those recommended in our instruction manuals."
Check that the type of battery is correct
Did you buy the camera new? is it still under warranty?
Here is the link to the support page for the s7000 including manuals, repair centre details etc;
or direct to the manual;
Apart from contacting Fuji for service, the only suggestion I could find in the manual was that the battery cover may not be closing fully. Worth checking.
Hope this helps :)
Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP (Display) button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save battery power. You could then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn it back on, just the DISP button one more time.
You hit the EVF/LCD button near the "eye hole". When this is pressed it will cycle viewing through either the optical viewfinder or the LCD screen. This display is controlled independantly on each of the modes: shooting, or viewing. This is so you can set the camera to view pics before taking them from the optical viewfinder and view pics once taken from the LCD or vice-versa.
If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
