SOURCE: Fuji S5700 Replacement LCD

I just purchased a replacement LCD screen off of Ebay from a seller called D & H Camera in Chicago, IL. The cost was $49.99 (Buy it now) with a $15 shipping fee. It came very quickly and I am going to attempt to install it myself although the seller offered to do it free of charge if you would rather send it to him. The local camera shop from where I purchased the camera said it would cost as much as the camera did to replace it so this is a good deal in my opinion. Good luck.

You may not be able to. However let us try. Reset all menus to default, or factory settings. Another way to do it, possibly is to remove all batteries and let the camera sit for at least 24 hours, then put the batteries back in and try it.
You may need repairs.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Don't blame the Fuji Designers for this fault - it was the Fuji Bean Counters that are at fault - the flash design is for TWO springs, the plastic casting has the holes for a second spring on the other side - which wasn't fitted so 100% overloaded the single spring mount.
Anyway if you are brave and handy you CAN fix this.
First remove the back of the camera - 3 screws in battery bay, 1 in the side above the memory card door, The two rear most on the bottom, two in the USB/video door, and the rear most on the left hand carry strap bracket.
Carefully prise the back rearward about 5 to 8 mm.
Now take a look at the two screw holes under the flash (when popped - or flopped out now that is broken) now go and bend a screwdriver of the type you used for the previous screws - you will need a 90 degree bend very close to the tip to fit in this gap and be able to turn the screws a few degrees at at time.
A little at a time lock the screwdriver into the screws and undo until the flash cover comes off.
You can then slide the shaft out of the flash to release the spring which will have the end that should fit into the broken bracket now sitting proud..
Make a suitable bracket like the one in the photo attached to slide over the broken plastic bracket.
make sure it fits really well the epoxy into position.
Getting the spring back in is a fiddly job - I found the best way was to fit the end of the spring into the new bracket, slide the shaft just into the spring - the lever the other end of the spring down into the back of the flash body and then slide the shaft all the way into place.
I did have to file down the little plastic "blade" inside the lid which presumably is designed to assist the the (now broken) bracket from breaking....
reverse the dis-assembly and now you should have a working flash bb61266_2.jpgbb61266_1.jpg

Night shoot and Indoor photo quality is not good with Fuji S5700


Your Sony camera must be more noise-free at high Iso settings than the S5700. As you view your shots on the camera, press the button with the square and the +/- symbol in it. Now you can see what Iso setting the pic was taken at. The 400, 800 and 1600 settings are all noisy on this camera. The only solution is to use a tripod with long shutter time and Iso 200 or less.

Changing Shutter Speeds


The +/- button is located on the bottom right corner on the back of the cam. If you do not find it on your cam, probably "you are not using a Genuine Fuji S5700".
