I just got a Fuji Finepix 50i second hand. It was dead to start with so I charged it and set the date & time. It then froze. Nothing would work. The screen was off, the green light was on and all the buttons do nothing now. I have removed the battery. I replaced the battery. I replaced the memory card and it still won't power off or work.
I have seen on the Internet that other folk have had this problem but don't say how they fixed it.

Re: 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.

your camera is kind of getting old but it is still great. some people really like it. personally I like also.
however, fuji finepix f810 has little problem like yours due to delicate design. on your flash problem could has two sequence check. first is flash circuit defective or flash tube defective. second is main pcb doesn't work properly with flash function. your local repair shop would charge around $75 to 185.
Fuji camera usually charge more than other brand. I am sorry that you know.
Good luck with you and best regard.
I have same problem as edmoze mentions above - batteries went dead. I first tried to use regular Duracell AA and it would still not come on. Went to internet & it recommended getting the Duracell rechargeable NiMh which I did. Got the charger & last nite they charged overnight. Today the camera did come on & I was able to download what I had taken. But what concerns me is that the low battery light is still flashing after a night of charging. What's up? Should I expect this kind of battery problem to continue? Seriously considering getting a Nikon Coolpix.
The problem of yours,is the battery is need to change a new one.That's is the symptom of the battery is near to "run out"it cannot stored the charge,it will automatically discharge,when you pull out the charger connection...
there is a option in the menu that turns the camera off after 2min. and then after that it is hard to get started.I took out the rechargable batteries and installed new duracell batteries,and it started and then I went to the menu and disabled the powersaver option.
I just today sent my camera to Fuji to have the same thing repaired. I've read that the on-off switch tends to fail on this camera.Mine is just a few months past warranty, of course!
this is my 3rd Fuji and 1st problem though.
