Question about Fuji FinePix S5500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fiji Finepix S5500

My camera opens up the lens deploys, it will connect to the computer etc, but when the power up is done and the lens deploys, the LCD screen shows the date and time setup, and asks to press OK for set, and back for NO. Trouble is the buttons do not respond to either when pressed. the camera appears to lock in that position. any ideas are welcome.

Solved my own problem, but for the benefit of others.
the camera is held together via about four/five small phillips screws. these need to be removed. the back of the camera will come away from the body. Make sure you don't pull too hard as there is a small connecting ribbon between the camera and the rear circuit board attached to the back. This ribbon is held in place at either end by small brown/tan coloured clips that hinge up to release the ribbon and down to clamp the ribbon to the connections. Try removing the ribbon ends and replacing it. If you are careful you can do this with batteries in place. Make sure you have your card in place, it won't work otherwise. I just realigned the ribbon and the camera works wonderfully. Might help with other errors. also a small ribbon attached to the multi function button, may have the same result for other problems. good Luck.

My camara is a finepix z i can se my photo on the camera but went i conected to my computer nothing happen my phto didnt come out event the computer dindt read the camera and nothing


You need to locate the driver for your camera, In a CD form or direct download form manufacturer website in order to have your laptop read the device you have to tell the laptop what device is attatched either by driver CD, or at fuji website for example.
look up your model on fiji site look for download drivers for your operating system on laptop XP vista etc.. then reboot your computer add the device by connector USB cord then it will see the device OK ? open My computer icon when it starts to see the digital camera icon

Hi. I have a model S5500 that I have


I have one which you can buy off me... Everything is great with mine except hole where the tipod goes into has had the thread stripped and the flap for the battery door is broken... I also wanted to repair mine but can't find the parts. So I guess I could sell you mine as I have just upgraded to a Canon 40d.

Fuji finepix lenses


See my other post ref long/wide angle lenses.

Just check out ebay - look for fuji convertor lenses, a pair of basic Raynox long and wide angle lenses are about £100 although you can buy higher spec ones for significantly more. With Jessops going through hard times they tend to put these in their junk/clearance bins - I got my wide angle for £1.39 after waiting for about 3 weeks for it to drop in price. Check out when they are closing or clearing stock. Guess all high st retailers will be in the same boat wherever you are based at the moment so willing to sell-off slow moving stock.

If you have no data on the memory card, you should hook up the card to the computer. If your computer doesn't have a slot to insert your memory card, hook the camera up to the computer. Then format the memory card (if you don't know how to do that, reply and i'll type it out for you...)

Changing lenses


Tell me more about the lens- make etc full detail. Check also the Fiji web site for their lens's. Make sure you are attaching the lens the right way round- there is presumably a set of contacts that match the contacts on the body[A connectiviry issue] So far I am guessing but your remark 'See them all over the internet'leads me to wonder if some of this stuff is genuine Fuji or a reputable make.
