Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

Help! Won't turn on

I just purchased this camera today. It was fine and taking good pics. I was exploring the buttons while the camera was on. I pushed the evf/lcd button, to check out the viewfinder and the camera shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, it did so for a split second and then nothing. I was able to get it turned on with the playback button. But again in pushing the evf/lcd button it kicked off and did the same thing. I tried new batteries, so it's not that. Can anyone help, I'm pretty bummed out right about now.

    Yes, I purchased it new. And, have tried multiple sets of new batteries. It seems like the evs/lcd button is what triggered the problem. The camera was on and functioning great. I pushed that button and that's it. Thnaks for the info though. I'm taking it back to the store today.

    Thanks for the help Noggin. I returned the camera today for an exchange and this one works fine. I just wonder if that was a freak thing that I had or will be a problem for future owners. Have a great holiday.

    Thanks Inky. Pressing the evs/lcd button turned the camera off and it wouldn't come back. But, it turned out that the camera was faulty. I took it back and got a new one and this one is fine. I guess I just had the unhappy fortune of getting an oddball reject. I thank you for your help, though...:-)

When you press the EVF/LCD button the camera toggles it's display setting from using the LCD to using the viewfinder or vice versa. So if you were in normal mode and pressed the button, it should switch from using the LCD to using the EVF. If the lens is capped, the LCD/EVF will show nothing. The toggle setting is retained even when powering off the camera. Set the power switch to the camera symbol Set the mode dial to Auto Set the focus mode S-AF Looking through the viewfinder with lens uncapped, press the shutter release half way. Do you get the beep and a green indicator (Near the zoom buttons) - steady means camera is ready? Will the camera now take the picture? If so take a picture and record it onto the memory. Set the power switch to the |> symbol and see if the recorded image(s) are now displayed on the LCD. If you see a recorded image it suggests the LCD is OK. If no image is displayed the LCD may well be faulty.

    Sounds like you have the same luck as me. If they make one in 2,000,000 that is faulty - that will be the one that I buy!!

    Glad it's sorted for you though. Happy Snapping

Fuji suggests; "If the digital camera will not turn on, run through the "Checklist" given below. If this does not solve the problem, take the camera, the batteries, and the AC Power Adapter to an authorized FUJIFILM service center for testing and repairs. [Checklist] 1. The direction of your battery might be wrong. Confirm it and put it again. 2. Load new or fully charged batteries. 3. The battery terminals may be dirty in a way that cannot be seen (fingerprints, etc.). Wipe the terminals clean with a soft cloth. 4. Press the Power button again firmly." Cleaning the battery contacts sounds worth a try. Fuji also say; "Please use only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries with Fujifilm digital cameras Please note that instruction manuals provided with Fujifilm digital cameras recommend that only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are used with those digital cameras which require AA or AAA type batteries. If other types of batteries are used together with an AC adaptor, this may result in the rare occurrence of the battery overheating. Please do not use batteries other than those recommended in our instruction manuals." Check that the type of battery is correct Did you buy the camera new? is it still under warranty? Here is the link to the support page for the s7000 including manuals, repair centre details etc; http://www.fujifilmusa.com/JSP/fuji/epartners/ServiceSupportBrowse.jsp?prodcat=616757&sscucatid=664272&sscucatid=664271 or direct to the manual; http://www.fujifilmusa.com/JSP/fuji/epartners/bin/S7000Manual.pdf Apart from contacting Fuji for service, the only suggestion I could find in the manual was that the battery cover may not be closing fully. Worth checking. Hope this helps :)

    Ps if none of that helps, it sounds like the problem is with the lcd screen, probably only repairable by replacement.

Have a fuji finepix S5600, but my lcd remains black even the camera is on! i can see the pictures i already made at the lCD. But LCD is not working if i want to make new pictures??


Hello, I think I know what the problem is..we'll see. On the back of the s5600 there is a button marked EVF and LCD(EVF on top LCD underneath) try clicking this button to see if your LCD screen becomes available, only one of these can be used at a time and the default for playback is the LCD screen. However if you have set it to EVF it will revert back to this format when you leave playback and try take new footage. I hope this helps and it is nothing more complicated. I have some problems myself and know how it feels. Alan

My s5000 screen is all white in record mode. It breifly had a picture then when I pushed the shutter it went white again????


Does the EVF work? The small view finder above the LCD screen. You can switch to it using the EVF/LCD button on the right side above the main display. If it is okay then you'll likely need a replacement LCD.

Cant view photos on the big screen of my camera


I think you must have pressed the EVF/LCD button which changes the review area to inside the tiny view finder.. the EVF/LCD button is found on the back of the camera at the top left hand corner.. it is a little silver button. Hope that helps.. :)

LCD screen not on when camera on?


You hit the EVF/LCD button near the "eye hole". When this is pressed it will cycle viewing through either the optical viewfinder or the LCD screen. This display is controlled independantly on each of the modes: shooting, or viewing. This is so you can set the camera to view pics before taking them from the optical viewfinder and view pics once taken from the LCD or vice-versa.

Above the screen display on the back of the camera are two small buttons. The left one is blue and the right one is marked EVF/LCD.

Push the right side button to change from the viewfinder to the screen.

Won't stay turned on


Since mine was only a day or two old, I took it back to the store and got it replaced. Since then, it's been fine. Hope you have the same option.
