20 Most Recent Fuji FinePix 1300 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


The finepix 1300 is an entry-level 1 megapixel camera that came out in 2000. It was never designed to be able to take videos. I think it's time to update your equipment to a nice, modern camera.

It might not be worth getting it fixed, but there are some things you can try before you toss it.
The following blogs describe two conditions that can cause this, and things you can try to fix it.
They say about 50% of the cameras can be fixed trying their suggestions:

You're either experiencing a power probem, or a lens issue. Hopefully these blogs will get you up and snappin' pictures again.
You can take the camera in to a local camera repair shop and get an estimate on repair, but often the cost of repair justifies going ahead and buying a new one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

MIne's doing the same thing. I've had this problem on and off ever since I bought the camera.

I think they had a defective control chip from the factory and there's no excuse for them to have released these cameras for sale with this problem.

The problem evidently stems from the stupid way they power up the camera. The switch is basically a momentary switch that turns the camera either on or off and the chip then recognizes what the operator intent is by changing whatever state the camera happens to be in (if it's of then it turns it on and vice-versa).

The chip will also turn the camera off if it hasn't been operated after a set time and theis is also the reason that the camera will run down the baterries if it hasn't been operated...there is always a slight drain on the batteries even if it's turned off.

So to answer your question, this isn't built-in obsolescence, it's defective design.

I will never own another Fugi product.

If the removable disk does not appear when you open "My Computer" in Windows, it is possible that the USB drivers are not installed correctly. Update to the latest version of FinePix Viewer (including the USB drivers). To update FinePix Viewer, you must have the software from the CD-ROM bundled with the product (Utilities for FinePix) already installed. As an alternative method to updating the software, you can also reinstall the USB drivers. The USB drivers can be reinstalled by installing the software from the CD-ROM again. If the removable disk is still not displayed after the above measures have been taken, check the following: Windows system checks 1. You should be using Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 or Windows XP. 2. The Windows XP USB drivers are supported as standard system drivers but are only compatible with Software for FinePix versions 2.0 or later. If you are using an earlier version of the CD-ROM, an update to FinePix Viewer is required. 3. The software cannot be installed properly from "Scanners and Cameras" in the Control Panel. Digital camera checks 1. Check that the digital camera can play back images on its LCD monitor. 2. On digital cameras with the PC Camera function, select "DSC" as the USB setting. (Refer to the Owner's Manual for your camera for information on specifying the camera settings.)

Description When I connect my FinePix camera to my computer, the AutoPlay Wizard does not launch as shown in the manual. I have Windows XP and I have installed the FinePix Viewer software. Cause AutoPlay is a Windows XP feature. The AutoPlay setting may not be working properly in your Operating system. This situation is not the result of a faulty camera or FinePix Viewer software. Solution We suggest running the Microsoft AutoPlay Repair Wizard utility which is available as a free download from the Microsoft Download Center. The AutoPlay Repair Wizard scans your computer devices to find defective AutoPlay settings, and attempts to fix those it finds. To download this utility, please go to the Microsoft Download Center and enter "AutoPlay" in the Keyword box.

About the HS10 autofocus problem, I discovered the cause and solution. It is a problem of camera design, and is caused by three screws securing the CCD sensor. These screws are not properly secured and the vibration eventually dropping. In two cameras with the same defect, the screws were loose. These screws adjust the sensor position relative to the lens and the sensor is loose when out of position not allowing proper focus. The solution is to disassemble the camera and secure the screws. These screws can not be too tight they need to be adjusted to position the CCD sensor correctly. The camera is difficult to dismantle because several wires are soldered. Care must be taken to discharge the capacitor of the flash, this may cause an electric shock and burn the camera board. Those who want to try the repair, follow the link to the service manual. http://elektrotanya.com/fujifilm_finepix_hs10_hs11_sm.pdf/download.html Milton Maenishi

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.
