Question about Fuji FinePix 4700 Zoom Digital Camera
The camera must have been subject to some kind of physical pressure because: The card slot did not open properly, but I have manipulated it back into place and it works now. The flash would not pop up because two plates at the top were slightly overlapping, but I have manipulated them back and it pops up ok. The lens cover won't open when I switch on, and I can't seem to manipulate it at all. I haven't undone any screws. I really would be grateful for suggestions. Thanks David
I have been told by a camera mechanic i contacted on line (in America) that there is a fuse within the camera which is very small and soldered onto one of the boards. I was unable to get a precise location and the only details were that this component was either white with black writing or black with white writing.This may have a bearing on your problem.

SOURCE: Lens shutter stuck
had this solution, tried everything.
Eventually i slowly applied pressure on the focas len, and the zoom mechinism, when it was switching off, and it make a click. some sand came out, and the camera started working.
the motor is loud though, i then polished and oiled the zoom lens cases. and ran some more compressed air though.
I mean, a loud zoom motor, or a £100 repair bill?
i'd rather doing it my way. hope this helps

Had a similar problem once. Fixed it by opening the camera and freeing up the lens cover.
1)Undo 2 screws each side and the base (6 in all) ignore the one on the front edge of the base for now.
2)Separate the base from the case (gently!) don't pull them too far apart, because they're joined by ribbon cables.
3)Then remove the long screw you ignored above, and again carefully separate the front panel.from the body.
4) At this point, you should be able to access the back of the lens cover, and free up the mechanism.
Once that' s done, put it back together, reversing the above sequence. Don't force anything, just make sure they're all lined up and fit before inserting the screws.

Have you ever dropped your camera??
If you have , this is why.
No need to buy a new camera just yet.
Try celotaping it in.
My mom had to do this , after it worked fine!
