    The camera is a Fuji Finepix Z5 and its only 2 years old so I think it should last a lot longer than it has...

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
May I know the make and model of your camera? If a camera doesn't fire anymore it is usually caused by a worn out internal parts that needs to be diagnosed by an experienced tech on hand.

This will surely cost you so if you think that this camera served you for quite sometime then a replacement is surely recommended.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Happy New Year!

The camera not starting or not shooting anymore may occurr for many different reasons. Most of the time the camera must be taken apart and tested by a technician.

If the camera is starting and operating normally but simplu does not take pictures, ensure that the camera is not in PC mode, and check and replace the batteries (use alkaline or rechargeable type). If that does not fix the problem, then it is usually the shutter button itself (providing that camera is functional). The camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

If camera does not start at all, then the main board inside the camera or the ribbon cables connecting to main pcb are often responsible. Fist ensure that the problem is not battery. Test with camera connected to computer via USB. Test with no memory card inside camera.

    Many cameras have an internal coin battery in addition to the main battery. The internal battery if present must be replaced every few years. If this is the case the battery type and replacement procedure are reported in the manual. I can be more specific if I know the camera make and model.

    Sorry, I was online.

    With Z5 the problem is the rechargeable battery.

    If you get display flashing and flash not shooting, test the camera using a new rechargeable battery. That is the first step in troubleshooting.

    Here the manual.

    Here one of the forums on the problem.

My Chevy 2,000 Mailbu will not start. Sometimes when I try to start it the trunk will pop open. Can you please help?!

Its time to replace the battery. This is common in Chevy cars, if the battery goes bad it doesn't hold a charge anymore. Whats happening in your case is the low voltage isn't keeping the trunk relay closed. When you turn the key all the juice goes to the stater and lets the truck pop open. Just to prove my point, give it a jump start and it will fire right up and the trunk will stay closed.
