20 Most Recent Fuji FinePix S9500 Zoom Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Unfortunately, six years appears to be about the limit for modern consumer cameras. To get it fixed would cost more than replacement.

I'm afraid it not just fell in, but was pressed in. Meaning the housing had some damage to. When the camera is still in warranty I would send it back to bring it to a certified Sony repair centre. If not you still can o the same, but first ask what it will cost. To my experience (retired electronic repair engineer) it is almost impossible to repair modern electronics, without special tooling and good skills.

Try taking out the batteries, then the memory or sd card and then putting the card back in and then your batteries (worked for me)

Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work. Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.

Do both the LCD display and the Viewfinder not work? Or did you press the EVF/LCD button?
I can remember I had some panicking events with my camera, because I switched to a mode I did not understand (or even did not notice I did switch something) and only after intensive searching I found what I did wrong. My camera still works as it should, although I have fought severals times, now it is really defect. So don't panic or thing the worst.
Don't think you are stupid when you take the manual, to see how settings are.

Had the same problem. Was quiet desperate. But then I remembered that the last thing I did just before the apparent death of my dear camera was to remove and put back the CompactFlash card to transfer pics. That caused a pin on the card connector to be bent, making contact with the next pin. It wasn't easy to put straight, because the contacts are rather deep inside the shaft. But that was the cure. My FinePix came back to life.
Let's hope the same thing happened to you...

Is that 10 seconds? 1/10 second? f/10?

What happens when you turn the command dial? What happens when you hold down the exposure compensation button and turn the command dial?

this happened to my s9600 basically it would of cost more to repair that to get a new camera the usb connector has probably gone inside and fused something out when it was lose

If you mean you can view images on the screen but can not take pictures then your camera needs service / repairs

This is a non essential part and does not have to be in place for the camera to operate properly. I would suspect that the part can be ordered through a Fujifinpix sales dealer. This little plastic cover on all my cameras is the first thing to be removed and lost.

try to put a little contact cleaner solvent+ or contact spray. You can buy from radio shack, or computer stores, or electronic supply.

God bless you

The microphone is located on the front of the camera, just behind the flash pop-up button. As far as I can tell there's no way to turn it off, but you can easily strip the audio out and replace it using video editing software on a computer.

That's probably the best way to eliminate wind noise as well. Remember that the camera is primarily an image recording device. Leave the sound recording to a device better suited for it, with a microphone shielded by a wind screen. Or record the sound in a studio. But then we're getting into real money, the way "real" filmmakers work.

If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
