    Same problem and out of the blue my s9600 wouldn't switch on regardles of power source. The camera was less than 1 month past the 12 month warranty, and I was furious. I contacted the Fuji repair centre after reading a few similar reports expecting to have to make a complaint. They offered to look at the camera and would extend the warranty if the problem was not user abuse. To my astonishment they repaired the camera F.O.C as it was an issue with the 'top cover' which they replaced. Top marks to their repair team, as I would consider that excellent customer service. Many manufacturers would bang on about being out of warranty and end up losing customers. Most companies still don't get the British way of complaining to their detriment.

    Might be a batch problem with the 'Top Cover' (still unsure what part they mean) but it is worth enquiring with Fuji.

I have the exact same problem. I only just received the camera 2 days ago,after using it for only 3/4 hours or so the camera refuses to switch on. Before it stopped working when I turned it off the switch seemed to be jammed ever so slightly,a sort of gritty feel to it,when I attempted to power it up nothing happened after that. I think whats wrong with the camera is a connection in the power switch has broken leaving it useless until repair where i'm just preparing my camera to be sent away for.

I have a Fuji S9600 which seems to have a faulty On/Off dial. When swithing the camera on, the playback screen is displayed without any problem. However when selecting the picture taking mode, the LCD or view finder becomes a very faint grey colour and is dimly illuminated. When switching the camer off, this grey screen still remains until the batteries run out! The only way to switch off completely is to open the battery compartment. has anyone any ideas?

I have a Fujifilm FinePix S9600 and the zoom lens is turn all the out 300mm and dont want to turn back. Just got the camera a day ago bought it 2nd hand

For your camera there is still a manual online. Check out with Fuji.
When something strange happens with your camera, the best thing to do is to remove the batteries for a few seconds. After you reinserted them, you can switch on the camera again, and wait what happens. If the lens did not come back, because of a software problem, or just because you touched it while it came out, this could solve the problem. If any mechanical problem, like a defective motor, gear or even en electric one, like a broken connection. nothing will happen. If the camera won't retract the lens, I would go back to the person who sold the camera and asked him to solve the problem, or to give back the money.

I have fujifilm finepix s9600 and need the software to download photos. Can i download this from the net

when you connect your camera with the pc the camera will probably appear as a seperate drive on your computer. for example if you have a hard disk C: and a dvd driver named D: check to see if a new external disk appears as E: which will contain the folder of your pictures on your camera.

Fuji Finepix S9600 - Photography mode doesn't work

Sounds like the CCD (main image sensor) is dead. It should be covered under warranty. It doesn't sound like there is anything you've done, or can do to rectify it. Get it in to a Fuji service center with your warranty/receipts.
