Fuji Cameras - Page 2 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Is the display blank only after taking pictures, or blank all the time (i.e., can you see the menus)? If you can see the menus, try performing a Reset All (page 67 in the manual). The idea here is to set the contrast/backlighting to factory presets.

The manual can be found here.

If the display is blank all the time, try holding it near a bright light and look at it from different angles to see if you can see any image on the display (if the backlight isn't working, you may be still able to see items on the display). If that's the case, you may be able to navigate to the menus and perform a Reset All.

Otherwise, pull the batteries out and leave them out for a longer period of time - several days, if possible. This should also reset the camera.

Failing this, you will likley need to send it in for repair.

Many occasions LCD on camera display never fails but back light fails unless physical damage to LCD screen. Hold a torch to display when camera is on you will see faint(black and white) image means LCD is ok but back light is failed, it's replaceable but needs little skill to replace. Or replace full Screen with backlight. This is easy. Just remove back cover, remove display by loosening flex lock, put back new display carefully lock it holding flex with one finger. Please do not touch display flex contacts.

Check the basics first. Some of these suggestions may sound silly but I have done stuff like this.
Have you got something screwed to the tripod mount? This can overlap the door and stop it opening.
Have you dropped or bashed the camera recently?
Are you moving the door slide release in the correct direction? Check there is no damage visible on the camera or if there's anything trapped round the edge of the door jamming it?
Using a gentle but firm pressure with you thumb, press the door down into the 'closed' position. (I find sitting with the camera in my lap works best for this). Then use the slide release on the door. Release the pressure to see if the door has opened. You might need to roll your thumb round in flat circles to feel if the door is tight or slack when closed.
If this doesn't work or you have found some damage I would recommend you take it to a camera specialist as they will have the correct tools and skills to sort it out.

I had a Finepix camera and on it was a feature for image stabilising. On the display it showed a hand. Have a look for it on the menu

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Have you fully charged the new batteries

Wipe the contact area of the memory card with a soft dry cloth. Most issues involving memory cards can
also be resolved by formatting the card. Detailed instructions can also be found in your camera's user manual.

I have several cameras and had left my 1730 in an old house for a year. It had been in a bag with the lens cap on and no batteries, but the house left without heating over winter. When I put fully chaged batteries in it, I got a little motor noise but no lens movement. I thought this was the end of it but did #6 above, switching it on while banging the right (grip) side of the camera against my palm. After many times I saw that the lens was starting to move out and after about 10 more times it came out and started to operate. It then failed when I went to macro but it got better as I used it. Now it seems to be back to normal.

Change battery .. and use external chargers

The "W" indicates that it is a recoverable error. The "24" indicates that there is a problem in the paper feeder. The "25" indicates that it is a laser printer problem. Looks to me as though you have a paper jam.
