Don't bother. The SAME exact thing happened to mine after 5 weeks of use. I send it back to Fuji to get it repaired and they give me some BS that the body was seperated. I have to pay $85.00 to repair it. When I got irate the rep HUNG up on ME! I just e-mailed the manager and am waiting for a response. I'm sure I'll have to pay for the repair. They are just making excuses for a crappy product that they don't want to foot the bill to fix. After this I will never buy anything from Fuji again. I saw some bad reviews on line and should have listened.

It appears that the moving parts of the objective(those that go in and out when you zoom) could be damaged.This occures when the camera is dropped-in this case the most you can do is cleaning the moving parts and try gently to shake them or do anything that may unblock it.
Another blame could be the weak batteries or acumulator of your camera.Try get some new batteries or charge the acumulator.
A final thing you could do is reset to default the camera settings.
If any of these won't help, I suggest you should go to a specialised service, cause the problem-more common than you think- could be serious. Good luck Smitty
It seems to me the most obvious thing to look at would be the power switch. I don't think impact would damage the battery unless it cracked or punctured it - and I assume it hasn't since you haven't mentioned that.
Have you checked the switch itself for any damage, and made sure it's making contact when it's switched, and traced the leads from the switch back to the board - or even all the way to the battery? I think you'll find your problem somewhere in there.
The smaller battery should be for storing long term memory - i.e. any configurable settings. Even if that was dead, the camera would still turn on, it just wouldn't remember any settings.
just wondering if you figured out how to "fix" it...i realize you didn't get any suggestions...this happened to my camera last night i'm going to be a tid bit pissed if we can't retrieve the pictures from the card...just got back from hawaii...awesome timing huh
