Question about Fuji MX-600 Digital Camera

602Z Flash

OK... I got me a 602Z. As you probably know, it has a hot shoe right! Now, I went into my local Jessops (Camera store) and asked the nice lady behind the counter about getting an external flash for it. Her reply shocked me, She said that there weren't any flash's that would be compatible with the 602Z, Even Fuji dont do one. All of the flashes would fit, they just wouldn't flash when I pressed the shutter! Now, After leaving the shop in complete shock, I started to think... well why do fuji put a hot shoe on the thing then??? So my question is to you lot, Is there a flash that would be compatible with a 602Z or is Fuji insane and sticks hot shoes onto cameras just to make them look pretty

Re: 602Z Flash

I use a Sunpak 383. The Vivitar 285HV is more powerful but it is heavier and I don't think it swivels like the Sunpak.
From time to time they both both pop up on ebay.
The Fuji 602 was way ahead of it's time and is still used by many today.

Re: 602Z Flash

Well she is right in one way and wrong in another. The Fuji 602 does not have flashes that it will work TTL metering with. This is due to the single design posted on the hotshoe. But the big advantage with the 602 was its ablility to handle about anyflash you pop on it. It has been unoffically released many times, but most say the 602 can handle a trigger voltage of 500. Which is WAY more than most (5-8). There are alot of good flashes and manufactures that are out there, and with a quick search you will find MANY... Just stay below 500, actually 100 to be on the safe size and you will be ok. You stated it would not fire? Did you go into you menu system and set it for external flash? Its all way over on the left side, i think the first option. Other than that, you should be good to go. Good camera, hope you enjoy it.

My flash isn't popping up automatically or manually, someone said something about a shoe problem, but I don't know what that is. Help?


The "shoe thing" people were referring to is the camera's hot-show. This is where powered attachments (usually a flash) is mounted on the camera. The metal plate on top of the camera is the hot-shoe. It should look something like this: http://a.img-dpreview.com/reviews/CanonEOS450D/images/hotshoe.jpg
However, it is likely not an issue with the actual hot-shoe. It is most likely an issue of your camera's mechanical mechanism for releasing the flash being out of alignment. Try wiggling the "manual release" button for the flash to the left and right and see if it will catch on the mechanism. Then try pushing the button to see if the flash pops up.
You can try gently opening the flash manually with your finger, sometimes it is simply a buildup of dirt and grim blocking the mechanism and once this is cleared, it should work normally.
If you get the flash to pop up but it still will not fire, try the below method: Sometimes the camera can be confused into thinking that an external flash is attached to the body, thus making it ignore the internal flash. This can be resolved by moving the microswitch under the rails of your hot-shoe into the up position (it should be down when you see it) using a toothpick. You can access this after opening the flash up manual, as described in the previous paragraph. Here is an image showing where to find the switch: http://www.business-improvement.org/fixes/canon_350d_rebelXT_flash.htm

Do you have a manual for my camera centon dc8s please


Interesting search's and they always came back to Jessops in the UK. Looks like Jessops made the 8mpixel camera and sell batteries (3.7V).
I would be inclined to get back to them and ask - I tried about 3 sites that advertise manual for free but they don't have that Camera listed , Jessops do but only if you buy the camera.
http://www.jessops.com/?tduid=ed05c6eb38ac7249a7a438e933a90d78&url=http://www.jessops.com
Did the camera come with a disc ?
Tell them your copy is missing or got corrupted and won't open so you want another one on a later version of pdf. Ray

Have an 0.5 error in my Rebel XSi, done the q tip and still nget the flash up, two clicks and then error again! Any other tips before sending to canon???


I looked at the date on this and thought you know I just can't get to them all. Anyway Error 5 is to do with the pop up flash you are right. What the camera "thinks" is that there is something in the hot shoe above it and won't "pop up". New cameras come with a crazy plastic piece stuffed in the hot shoe, might be nice but it's going to get lost so take it out and try it. If the piece is already gone then it's back to Canon. Here is why. There are two tiny little hols under the hot shoe where a sensor pin is installed to "feel" if something is installed on the hots shoe. The alignment tolerance is so critical that changes in temperature or traces of dirt can block these pins from working. It's a warranty thing I would think and if not an authorized service facility should only take a few minutes to realign and clean the area solving the problem. In the mean time any Canon EX type external flash will work.

Flash not working


Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.

Wanting to use add on flash


The "error 99" is a general error on Canon cameras meaning "something's gone wrong and I don't know what to do about it". If you get them all the time, the camera is effectively dead and must go back to Canon for a service repair (circa £175 if I remember correctly).

If the error 99 only happens when you try to pop up the flash, but otherwise the camera can take good pictures, then yes, an external flash unit could well solve your problem. With an external flash on the hot-shoe, the internal flash is completely bypassed and the camera will never try to pop it up.

I recommend taking your camera to a shop such as Jessops and ask to try out a flash gun to be sure.

Hot shoe


If the flash is not sitting securely on the hot shoe when attached to the camera you may want to send the camera body to Olympus repair center for service. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3 to discuss the repair process and pricing if needed.
