We have a Fuji Finepix F420 that has had no accidents or falls. Suddenly it will only work in Play mode. In camera or videocamera mode it won't do anything, we can't even press the menu button or turn it off.
We have emptied the memory card and fully charged the battery.

Hi there, First of all i like to say its a problem of your lens guide pin. Its happens during dust or drop down camera or lens pressed by turn on mode. Just try this.
1. Turn on the camera and make it camera mode then clean the external lens area & make sure there is not dust or any scratch.
2. Reset the camera and remove the memory card. Now turn on the camera with out the card and see the result. If not success then let me know. Thanks.
Hello Jrmb, I would like to know what mode are you clicking these photos
in.. because overexposure is due to either slow shutter speeds or large
aperture. Try setting the camre mode according to the surrounding light
conditions.. for example, no need of flash when you are clicking
pictures in broad day light, instead of setting the camera on Auto
mode, try using Portrait mode for short distance (5 to 6 meters away)
Let me know if that fixes the issue.
And important .. Do not forget to rate the solution :)
yes ther is no problem using Ni-MH batteries, as they do not have a memory effect they will be better (subject to your charger), you can get the Fuji Finepix NH-20 batteries (wj=hich are NIMH) here - Fuji Finepix F420 battery
i have the same problem. no fall or accident but problem is same. i think it is common problem on finepix f420 and fuji has to find a solution for it. the guarantie of the camera expired and after that the problem happened. fuji has to repair them for free because the source of the problem is the machine. so it is fuji. not us !!!
