Having problems with your Fuji FinePix 6900 Zoom Digital Camera ?

I switch on my camera today (finpix 6900) for the first time in a few months and with a new battery. When it comes on it is displaying 'set date & time' but doesnt let me do it or even cancel it as it normally does. Any idea?


Answers :

The digital camera relies on the date and time and without setting it the camera will refuse to cooperate with anything you try to do with it. My concern is that once you set the date and time you will be fine until you shut the camera off again because I believe that when you start it back up you will get the same display message and if you do the camera internal battery needs to be replaced.

I've had the 5700 since 2003, which at the the time I paid $1200 for it. E-Bay is now selling for a bid of $85. At any rate, I cannot manipulate the menu to make any settings. I have a flashing update icon for date & time, but cannot set. Also, the zoom control is unresponsive. I have no idea where to get an estimate for a repair & let's face it, the repair would probably cost more then what I can purcahse a new digital SLR camera for with more features than what I paid for the 5700.
