Fuji Finepix F401 - cannot switch to playback mode
I've had the F401 for exactly 4 years and never had a think go wrong with it, however it recently stopped switching between capture, playback and video modes.
At the moment when I switch the camera on the lens pops out even if the switch is on playback or video. Flicking the switch between the modes does nothing. Taking photos still works fine but I cannot review them afterwards or take video.
Any suggestions would be most welcome!

Re: Fuji Finepix F401 - cannot switch to playback mode
There are no remedial suggestions I am sorry to say.
These devices are made in such a way that a 'repair' would not be possible only replacement if under warranty- which this one longer is.
4 years is a good life and technology has moved on now so much that a new camera is going to be the only option.

i have a Fuji S9600 which seems to have a faulty On/Off dial. When swithing the camera on, the playback screen is displayed without any problem. However when selecting the picture taking mode, the LCD or view finder becomes a very faint grey colour and is dimly illuminated. When switching the camer off, this grey screen still remains until the batteries run out! The only way to switch off completely is to open the battery compartment. has anyone any ideas?
