I was successfully taking pictures, then all of a sudden the shutter button stopped functioning. It doesn't even respond to the half-click. I was using the self-timer at the time, if that helps at all. My CF card is empty. Help!

First try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. If that doesn't help, astuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
For this kind of pictures, Don't try to focus on a lightning, it is to quick and mabe the overall brightness is not enough for your camera to focus. So you can try to focus on something at infinity, if you manage then, put your focus on manual before re focusing, this way you will be able to take as many pictures as you want.
You can also try to focus manually directly.
And for you information the best way to take a lightning picture is to put your camera in bulb mode, use a remote control, open the shutter and close it as soon as you'v seen a lightning.
I will second that. I can't seem to find a solution for the exact same problem. I tried to take a picture but does not respond, If I take the batteries out and put them back in as soon as I turn it on it takes a picture, then doesn't respond again. AHHHHHHH. Ive only had this camera for about 18 months and I'm so disappointed. I had a fujifilm 5600 Which I passed onto my sister we both have never had a problem, it's 5 years old now and still going strong, Now my camera is wiggin out and I need it to work ASAP CAN ANYONE HELP US
No, it's not an error. What this
display indicates, is the availability of the total number of photos
you want to take. If the display says, "r06", then you are in JPEG
Mode. If it says "r03", then you are either 1) in RAW Mode, or 2) have
your Noise Reduction on (see FAQ #2). As you take a few photos in
succession, you will notice the indicator drops by how many photos you
e “shoot and select” modes allows you to select an image out of a sequence of still pictures you have taken by depressing the shutter button and storing it. This is best for shooting moving objects.
SHOOT & SELECT 1: Shoots a rapid succession of 4 still pictures by keeping the shutter button pressed.
SHOOT & SELECT 2: Shoots a succession of still pictures by keeping the shutter button pressed. The Stylus 500 will continue to shoot until you take your finger off the shutter button or until the card is full. After shooting, you will have the option to immediately delete the pictures you do not wish to keep.
