Fuji S9600 Memory Card Holder Broken

Hi,

A few weeks ago, I was taking some photos in a park. The CF card became full, so I went to put in a new one. As I put the card in , I felt some grating to the sides of the slot/holder. I was just using normal strength, not forcing it. I may have put the card in wrong way round. When I took the card back out to put it back in , the card does not go completely in.

I returned the whole camera back to Fuji in the UK and have now been asked to pay £99.99 ! I've only had the camera for about 4 or 5 months.

Does my guaranteee not cover such an occurence ?

Thanks.

Sadly a warrenty will not cover accidentally putting the card in the wrong way, as it is tecnically your fault, but you can use the slot for xd cards, if you do not want to pay for a new cf slot

We have been using our Finepix s9500 for a few years now with minimal problems (we preferred the previous model). A couple of weeks ago, we were out using the camera and the 1GB CF card read as full after...


firstly try checking your settings. i get used to get alot of customers who came in with similar problems and some of them were because they switched their save settings to internal. if that doesnt work make sure all pics are saved somewhere and try reformatting your memory cards.

Older VHS-C Palmcorder Memory cards size recognition


Dear Sir,
Yes all noted on your SD/CF card question, well this was a very good question for me simply because I too have had this same problem with my own Sony Digital 340 movie camera.
My camera come with a 128 mb SD card, and like a fool I went last week and bought a 2 g card, and my camera just cannot see it let alone use it, and I now find that camera's before 2004 cannot see any g cards, and like me you are stuck with small max of 128 m because the camera hard-ware is old tec stuff, sad I think my friend, but that's it.
Take care,
from
David

My Fujifilm S9600 draining batts rapidly...


Hi !! With your comments I was thinking on al old problem that I have with a Fuji S7000 using a CF card, it drains the battery very fast, but the problem was the CF card, not the camera, I switch to a XD memory card and problem solved, Are you using a CF memory card?

Fujipix S9600 - just a white screen - can't get to any menus.


the s9600 does not use sd carde, it uses xd and cf, you might have damagesd the camera by forcing the wrong type of card in, fujifilm's repair center might be able to fix it, but it might be broken too badly

Sony Alpha 100 gives error message when attempting to take pic.


Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. I was getting the same error message as reported above: "Unable to use card" then "Format?" then that format fails. Thinking the camera is broken, I checked online camera repair sites and also called Sony directly. Sony's flat rate, and that of PrecisionCamera is $228 to fix CF card failure. Then my daughter said, "the CF card in my room works fine in the camera" - and lo and behold - it does. The CF card that works is brand PQI and is marked Hi-Speed 60 2Gb. The cards that do NOT work are marked SanDisk Ultra II 1.0Gb and SanDisk 128 Mb. So my advice is, before you give up on the camera as broken, try a number of different CF cards first.

The second cause of CF failure is if someone has pushed a CF card in the wrong way. That can bend one or more of the tiny metal contact pins in the CF socket in the camera. Look carefully to see that all the pins are straight up. [I don't know how one can straighten these pins, or if the whole socket would need to be replaced...but at least you can determine the cause of the CF failure.]

Best regards - Michael

Selecting storage media for finepix S9600


http://www.dpreview.com/news/0608/06082412fujis9600.asp. this link says that your camera can run with either the XD or the CF card.

There wil not be any noticable change in performance.
