Wow, these cameras work the best with rechargeable type batteries the Alkaline batteries will just die before you get 50 pictures. If you are using the LCD screen all the time it's a power hungry hog and will kill the best of batteries quickly.
You should program the camera to auto shut off in 2 minutes, review time should be about 1 minute and the camera should be in sleep mode or turned off between pictures to conserve as much power as possible.
I use a Fuji S100fs camera a lot for a walk about, documentary, time laps and generally shooting and can get about an hour of continues use from one battery and about 190 frames.
Have you been in a high humidity environment? Did you use the camera in cold weather and then brought it in to a warm room so moisture condensed inside? If the problem keeps recurring, I suspect mold in the camera. If so, repair could be expensive.
When that problem has happen to my Fuji A210 is because the slider that cover the lense has not gone all the way to the right ! I usually move the slider strongly 2 o 3 times to the left and to the right, and then turn the camera on. Fortunately, that trick has worked for me, so I hope it also works for you !!!
Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Walmart sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and slap yourself in the head for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.
Mine shuts off when I press the shutter button. I put in new batteries and I can get the lens in then. But it shuts off when I try to take a picture. These cameras are notorious for having a zoom problem. They say the Zoom error appears and the camera dies. There is a fix of gently pulling the lens out all the way till the cover open then twisting it gently clock wise till it clicks. They say this fixes this problem but I don't think that is what is wrong with mine. Do a search on Fuji E550 zoom problem fix. It should show up.
