Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Fuji FinePix S500

Camera has been working fine no problems like the images and the camera too. I have not used the camera for some months no batteries were left in it. Upon putting batteries in read the memory card and set up with date etc no problems. When I went to use the camera had a white screen seemed that it was being flooded with light when try to take photograph the camera shuts down but the lens stays retracted. Seems that it is safety feature of the camera. Nothing shows up view finder now and cuts out immediately camera lens has deployed. Is it fixable or time to buy a new camera?

Thanks

The iris may have stuck closed due to moisture or the CCD may be bad. Let it dry out for about a day if the iris is stuck. If you still can't get an image, then more likely the CCD is bad - take it in for repair.

Fuji Finepix F30 Suddenly takes only all pink screens (no image)


This sounds like one of two problems -
Either an LCD screen problem or a bad CCD sensor.
A LCD screen problem would indicate one of two of the following - it was cracked, or the cable inside is either damaged or moved out of the plug and need to be reseated.

A bad CCD sensor would show a pink screen on cameras, but would also show menus on the screen as well, do you see those? The CCD basically captures the image the lens is seeing and translates it to an image the camera can save. Generally the CCD can not be replaced separately from the lens and will require an entire lens assembly for repair.

Fuji FinePix S1000fd Digital Camera, freezes!


We have the same problem. Less than 6 months after using it the flash seems to lockup the camera and the only way to free it up is to remove the batteries.
Hopefully someone has a solution or answer.

Fuji j10 - my mac wont recognise it even using finepix


I had the same problem with my camera & mac.  I got this off the Fuji site and it worked for me:
If images cannot be downloaded from the camera to a Macintosh, check the status of the camera and the Macintosh and resolve the problem accordingly.

1) Check the status of the camera and Macintosh.
1. Connect your camera to the Macintosh and turn the camera on.
2. Open the "Applications" folder on the Macintosh HD.
3. Double-click "Image Capture".
* If the "Imaging device not connected" message appears, follow the steps described in [Checking the connection between the camera and PC].
4. Select "Preferences" from the "Image Capture" menu.
5. The procedure for using the Image Capture Preferences window differs depending on the OS version used. Use the correct procedure for your version of Mac OS.
- Mac OS 10.4: Click "General" in the Image Capture Preferences window.
- Mac OS 10.3: Click "Camera" in the Image Capture Preferences window.
- Mac OS 10.2: Simply proceed to the next step.
6. In "Items launched at camera connection", select "FPVBridge" and then click the [OK] button.
* If FPVBridge is not among the displayed items, follow the steps in [Displaying FPVBridge] below.
7. Quit "Image Capture".

If you implement the above procedure up to step 6, FinePix Viewer launches automatically.
* To stop FinePix Viewer from launching automatically, follow the steps in [FinePix Viewer Setup] below.

The date time problem ist he internal battery[ A watch type button inside the camera body]
has worn out- replacing it will be a workshop job.
The other problem seems like wear and tear on the switch any repair will be costly.

If you are using rechargeable Ni-MH batteries discharge fully using the camera facility. Recharge and then discharge again. Recharge and hopefully the problem will be resolved.

Good luck

My computer will no longer recognize the camera


Maybe you need to add a software driver for your FinePix 2800, got a disk with the camera? Try loading (reloading?) the driver.

A BATTERY PROBLEM WITH THE FUJI S500


Old motors and mechanism is eating too much power, thats what you will expect after three or more years using your unit. Digital cameras lasts for about three years working in good condition, after that expect your head to turn using that cam.

NEW Batts but keep getting low batt indicator and....


Sorry, no solution. Same problem here. I am very unhappy because initially it took great pictures. The first one I tried only worked a couple of days and I returned to store and they replaced. Second worked a couple of months and now immediately draws down power and won't work on new batteries. I was told to use NH-10 batteries (rechargeable). I did this from the beginning. Still won't hold charge.
