Fuji S9000 Command Dial stopped working - Fuji Digital Cameras

SOURCE: Fuji FinePix S9000 battery change clears date/time.

Hi

I started having a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix F10 after about 3 1/2 years of problem-free use. Another poster had some really helpful advice which I thought I'd pass on. It seems there is an internal battery or capacitor which basically fails after a while, meaning date/time settings etc are lost when the battery is removed. (Some people claim this is a motherboard/chip problem instead - seems to be contentious!) So the camera is faulty, but the problem can be worked around.

The advice I found, which worked for my camera, was this:

- Turn off camera and leave off for approx 15 seconds before opening battery door.
- Change battery quickly (within a few seconds).
- Close battery door and leave camera off for approx 15 secs before turning back on.

This retained all settings when I tested it multiple times. I imagine it might not work if changing over a totally dead battery though.

Hope it helps!

SOURCE: is there a repair for command dial on a fuji s9500

Yes. contact Fuji and it cost about £14.00, its a doddle to fit.
When you recieve it you'll work out how to remove the broken part because you'll understand how it locates, basically a small Pozi screwdriver and a sharp knife to lever the top off.

My finepix s9000 will not turn on, it clicks a few times and then there is no power on screens or other features


remove the batteries, let it sit for a week or so, then load fresh batteries and it will turn on. Apparantly the auto shut down feature prevent it from turn on until the internal memory is erased. This is a stupid problem that Fuji should fix

Command Dial not working


I have had 2 cameras which developed a fault with the selector dial for exposure compensation & other parameters. Problem was a faulty selector switch on 1st camera. I was lucky to have this repaired under guarantee. Fuji replaced the top end of the camera to fix the fault.

Don't know how much it would cost to get fixed. These cameras are no longer made by Fuji, but I like them for a number of reasons and plan to use them for as long as possible.

Might be cheaper to buy a used replacement on Ebay rather than getting it repaired.

It Isn't Working


I just today sent my camera to Fuji to have the same thing repaired. I've read that the on-off switch tends to fail on this camera.Mine is just a few months past warranty, of course!
this is my 3rd Fuji and 1st problem though.
Good Luck.

Command dial is operating mechancally but does not adjust/ change any settings.


If it is still under warranty- your are in luck A repair shop if you can one- will charge about the value of the camera. Bearing this in mind and if you have the nous and suitable fine tools- have a go at looking under the button- you may find slight adjustment to be made. You do this by removing the batteries and removing the fine screws that hold the top plate and /or back cover on. But don't hold your breath.
