    It's strange but true. When I put the lithium battery the camera is dead. Without lithium battery it works except flash. What has caused this problem?

    I had the same problem today. The camera stopped working in the middle of a shoot - after about 5 shots. I did everything I could think of until I read this post. I took the lithium batteries out and it works fine.

    "Err" message over here, too. Here's what I've tried.

    1. Removed Lithiums and inserted 4 fresh AA's. Still getting the ERR.
    2. Used the AC Powder adapter and still get the ERR
    3. Several different CF cards and several lens in both P, A, S and Manual mode. Still getting the ERR message.

    Time to upgrade to the D700?

    Thanks...Stan

The lithium batteries power the flash and some of the metering. But if they drop below a certain power, the camera dies. The F33 error is probably the accidental movement of the aperture ring on the lense. If you get the error, check the aperture ring is set.

Hi there. A mystery error shows the Display of my Finepix S2 pro. Its like that: "o - -" or "o _ _" in the upper Display. Has anyone an idea for that? Best regards, Harry


Try resetting the camera by removing the battery for 15 mins. Replace the battery then go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings to set the Date and Time.

My fuji finepix S2 pro camera can not turn on when i put 2 cr batteries into its grip, when i remove 2 cr batteries it's turn on and work but i can't using flash, error no cr batteries found. Please show...


This is an old post but if you haven't found your solution yet here is the solution.
The Fuji FinePix S2 Pro uses two sets of batteries one set located in the camera body grip and another set in the battery grip itself. If you are experiencing the problem you are then the batteries in the camera body are dead and need replacement. here is a diagram. Replacing the batteries in the camera body require removing the grip.

I bought a 4 gig CF card for my fuji S2, and when I intiailize the card, I get a "card error". Is my card bad, or will my camera not support such a high gig card? 1 gig cards work fine.


From administrative tools in the control panel on a pc,you can format a 4 gig card to fat (not fat32) in the disk management window. It works fine in my Fuji s2.

Fuji FinePix S2 Pro won't turn on


I had a very similar problem a couple of years ago. Found intermittent power from AA source when battery tray was moved slightly while shooting. I ordered a new AA battery tray from Fuji ($50 I think), problem solved, no trouble since. The tray must hold the batteries tightly against the contacts inside the camera. Camera had only shot about 5000 frames when the problem arose. Hope this helps.

Err message on my S2 Pro


Try removing the lens, the memory card, and the lithium batteries. With freshly charged AA batteries, turn the camera on. If it comes on without the "err" message in that case, your problem lies with the memory card, the lens, or the lithium batteries. Turn off the camera and add these things until you encounter the problem again.

For a lens, check to make sure the electronic contacts are clean and that the lens gets fully twisted into place, and that if there is an aperture lock, that the aperture is set to the smallest possible aperture (22 or 16, usually).

For the memory card, reformat it elsewhere if it is causing problems. The Fuji S2 is notorious for being picky about memory cards.

Lithium batteries that are slightly run-down can cause all sorts of issues. Your S2 doesn't need to use lithium batteries, except for the built-in flash. You can add an extra AA battery pack to replace the lithium batteries, and that will improve the camera's reliability.

Ensure the batteries are the correct kind and chemical makeup (yes it does make a difference!)
try using lithium or alkaline as oppose to standard =]

Otherwise there may be an issue with the camera itself, check for warranty? if it isnt under warranty, document the error message/number, consult the manual AND the support site for the manufacturer.

good luck! =]

S2 pro electronic malfunction?!?!


If your lithium batteries are depleted, having them in the camera will shut it down. A common cause of depleting the lithium batteries is leaving them in the camera while using the AC power adapter. For some odd reason, the Fuji engineers did not build in a disconnect circuit when on AC power. You should always remove the lithium batteries when using the AC adapter.

The Fuji S2 will run fine without the lithium batteries, except that you will not be able to use the built-in flash. Fuji recommends that as an "emergency" procedure, but I ran my S2 off NiMH AAs only for my heavy use over four years with no adverse effects.

If you buy the MB-16 battery pack or one of the modified versions for the S2, you would be able to use 8 AA batteries to power the camera, including the built-in flash, and never touch another lithium battery. The MB-16 itself does require some modification in filing off edges around the base and building up material around the post to firmly engage the switch you found.
