Fuji Finepix 50i won't switch off & has frozen.
There are a few things you can try. I had a fuji that would sometimes do this also. I found low power was one of the main issues. First try a new set of NiMH as alkalines just wont cut it specualy with these older cameras. Next check the memory card door. There is a little tiny switch on the memory door that will turn the unit off if the door is opend. Make sure the door is fully closed and maybe even hold it down tite while you try and use it.

Washed out pictures outside
I'm not familiar with that exact camera, but buried in the cameras menus - there are various options to set the camera to such setting as auto exposure and that sort of thing. Sounds like you may have discovered that already.
In addition, some cameras offer a "white balance" setting - and that should be set on day light.

Focus error finepix hs10
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.

I have a FinePix S1 and the display screen is not working. All other modes are working but no display
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.
