Problems with the display

Hello,

when I turn on the camera I only see a USB-sign and below a symbol which shows two arrows (like a changing-symbol) and a "DSC".
When I press any button nothing happens. I already changed the batteries and I also ejected the card and waited a while before I turned it back. The result is the same.

With kind regards
Jessica Obermann

SOURCE: No picture taken when shutter release is pressed

if you see no reation of the pressing of the button i.e. no focusing, no error message nothing , then most probably a simplest problem , the shutter release button may not be working for few reasons : 1) defective switch. 2) defective flex cable. 3) camera exposed to some physical jerk or dropping resulting into disalingment between inner switch and the shutter release button.

SOURCE: My camera wont turn on

Well sometimes my camera does basically the same thing as both these comments and it is the battery quality.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would appear that all the hardware perform nominally. This would then indicate that it is the software half that has some glitch. The software/firmware normally could be re-flashed or updated but would require specialize equipment/interface which are not readily available to most user(s).

This then would require the services of an authorized service center for Fuji digital cameras capable of handling your camera's specific requirement. If the cost of repairs and downtime would be factored in, then you may have to re-evaluate your options of having it repaired and/or consider a replacement.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

My Samsung L200 does not turn on anymore while everything is at its place, And when I connect to any USB port, it shows a red arrow sign blinking on its cabke. Nothing else. Please help


It may be the battery has failed or isn't charging, have you charged it? Try taking out the battery and connecting to usb, does that change things? If so you should charge or replace the battery.

What should I do if my PC still won't recognize the camera after I reinstalled the USB drivers?


If the camera is still not recognized after the USB driver has been re-installed, one of the following situations may apply. "PC Camera" may be selected as the USB setting on the digital camera. Change the USB setting to DSC or select DSC in USB MODE. (This only applies to models with a USB Setting or USB MODE option in the SETUP screen.) Does the LCD monitor on the digital camera show that the USB connection is active (USB, DSC or a USB symbol with an arrow, etc.)? If not, the digital camera and PC may not be connected correctly. Check the items listed below. a) Restart the PC and reconnect the USB cable. b) If the PC has multiple USB ports, connect the cable to a different USB port. If steps a) and b) have both been tried and there is still no USB connection indicator displayed on the LCD monitor, there may be a problem with the digital camera or USB cable. Contact an authorized Fujifilm service center and ask them to check the digital camera together with the USB cable. Refer to the Digital Equipment Repair page for information such as the procedure for requesting checks and the locations of authorized Fujifilm service outlets. The USB driver may not be installed correctly. Download the USB driver from the Digital Camera Downloads page and re-install the driver The camera may not be recognized correctly if it is connected to an added USB interface board or via a USB hub. Always connect the camera directly to the USB port on the PC.
