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?

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.
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.
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. Just live with[out]it- or buy a new camera
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.
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.
