Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S1 Pro Digital Camera ?

Camera shuts down when the flash is opened


\015 How do all:) bit of a problem here i have a fujifilm finepix s1 pro I was taking photos and needed to use the flash after pressing the flash release the entire camera shut down and wouldnt come back on until the lithium battery cover was opened and closed, i have tried leaving the flash open still no joy so i closed it again then opened and closed the battery cover once again then the camera came back on, i tried holding down the flash and pressing the flash release the cam stayed on until i slowly let it get half way open could it be that my lithium batteries are not up to powering lense, shutter and flash, its not any knocks or been dropped as far as i know and no water punishment\015

I bought a S1 on ebay it came with the lithium pack and the watch battery, I put in 4 NmH batteries, and as soon as I tried to take a flash photo had the same problems. Just bought new batteries to replace the 3v lithiums in the camera. No more problem.
The flash circuit of the camera is short. the moment you switch on the flash it drops the supply voltages of the battery. you have to show it to a repairer.

Hi, My D80 has suddenly developed a fault, where it registers the flash as open and in use even when its shut. This has the effect of syncing the shutter speed and limiting it to 1 200th in all modes. In addition, whilst the flash button will still change the flash mode using the command dials, it won't open the flash- almost like the camera thinks the flash is already open. I have tried prising open the flash, and it still doesn't fire even when open. There was no indication of a problem previ

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!


The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power. Only way to get mirror etc back to normal is to remove the battery and refit. When camera is turned b

The camera was dropped while the lens was open. The camera now only opens about half an inch out and then shuts on itself. When it shuts it powers down and will not stay on. I am assuming that the motor is the problem, if so is it fixable? How would I fix it? How much would that cost?

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.
