I love my new 850SD, but in the last month I have noticed that it takes several attempts of pushing the button to turn it on or off. I can feel that I am pushing the on/off button, but sometimes it takes about 10 tries before it actually powers on or off. Any ideas?

Re: Camera does not power on/ off easily
The power button on the inside of the camera, not the button you see, has probably been damaged slightly and replacing that assembly would fix the problem.
One solution would be to buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two, another is to buy just the part you need or have somebody do the repair for you.
We are an affordable digital camera repair business, (google: DARNTOOTHYSAM) and if I recall correctly the ribbon cable you need that contains that button and the menu buttons is part of the flash assembly... Strange, but true. We can get the part you need and even install it for you, just let us know if we can help.

The battery must have run down over prolonged storage. It mayhave been stored while still on causing battery shortage. First attempt to power charge for full extent to ascertain if the camera is is in functioning order. Any unobservable faults thereafter equates to usually functionality. goodluck
There is a 7.5 Amp ATO automotive fuse on the rear electronics tray that is probably burnt out. The ammeter will not work when this happens. Also, if you have a bad on-board charger that will inhibit movement of the chair. Unplug the on-board charger and see if you get it to move. Hope this helps.
Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The
shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be
re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All
that is needed is the special screw driver for the F30 (easily
purchased online, just google it: "screw driver for fuji f30" ) or
bring it to your local watch/jewelry repair store and tell them to open
it up for you.
We have two F30's and they both have been
dropped, both did the same thing with the shutter button. But both were
easily fixed. Always keep the camera in a safe place and away from
kids, they are very sensitive devices. Use the wrist cord when taking
There may be dirt or debris that collected under the button causing it not to work properly. Try using an electronics cleaner on the button. This will clean out any dirt and hopefully allow the camera to "snap" pictures better. Here is a link to electronics contact cleaners.. CLICK HERE
This could be due to a jammed lens element preventing the camera from focusing properly. When you push the button the camera attempts to focus the image before it takes the picture. If the focus component in the lens is not moving properly it cannot focus and thus will not take the picture. Do you see the camera attempt to focus the image when you press down the button?
If it does not make any noises when you push the button, and the camera does not attempt to focus the image then it is most likely a jammed or malfunctioning focus motor.
This would require professional repair.
The LCD goes dark after the camera has been inactive for a time, to save battery. When that happens, you can easily restore the LCD display by half-pressing the shutter.
If you want to, you can turn this off by selecting menu-setup-SleepTimeout and turn it off. (I don't recommend it, though, as the LCD always on will drain your battery).
