Err means that the camera is in fault mode. There is no code, so that the fault is generic. This kind of error is often associated with shutter problems or other loens error. If you have a spare lens, remove battery and test the spare lens.

Try releasing the shutter by pressing it, that will probably not make any difference, as camera or lens is faulty.
If the above does not work, the only thing you can do is contacting Fuji to get directions to have camera repaired, you can also get a quote from a tird party service here: Repair.
Someone reported this problem on a web blog:
\015\012I don't like the magnet that keeps the card compartment door closed. Jiggle it just a little and you get an "Err" message...a latch would have been better. My biggest complaint is that it does require the "AA" and CR123 batteries to operate fully. Would like to see Fuji address in a future model...
\015\012You mentioned formatting your memory card, and I'm wondering if it's a 4gb card. Read this interesting web blog about them:
\015\012If nothing works, take it into a camera repair shop and see what they think. Often, they will know if a simple fix will work or if more service is required.
\015\012Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

Last night was taking photos indoors with flash on auto setting. All appeared fine except thre was a vertical line on the viewfinder, not quite half way across. After about 4 flash photos, the flash turned itself off and it wouldn't allow me to adjust the settings back to flash again. I checked the setting and it was still on auto and there was plenty of battery left. Tried a couple of shots and they took, but no flash, so useless. Turned camera off for half an hour then tried again and it was f

I have a panasonic lumix G2. Im only a beginner with a SLR camera so im a bit stuck. I have the Camera set on A but for some reason the screen & photo's are very dark.

Monitor unlit I'm using my colleges D40 for my digital photo class. The camera was set by a prior student. I'm trying to find on the camera where the "Auto- Off Timers" is. I'm thinking the camera was set so the monitor is always off avoiding extra use of the battery. It has to be something simple and getting used to moving around the camera program. Thanks

Why is my olympus e420 taking green tinted photos? I bought a new camera which I received yesterday, and it was until earlier, but has suddenly started taking yellowy/greeny tinted images. I've tried changing the settings, I've changed the camera modes, I reset the settings altogether and even changed lenses and yet the camera still takes tinted pictures, inside and outside. Also, when I switch the camera to live-view mode (shows exactly what the lens sees) it shows pretty much an entire green s

Intermittently, I get a scene in the viewfinder which is just a mass of streaks of various colors. I tried snapping the photo anyway, and that's also what came out as the image. Camera was set on "Auto". Sometimes when I gave up in disgust, the camera would work the next day, sometimes all day, sometimes only for a while. I tried fresh batteries (though I had no low battery warning) and also tried reseating the memory sD card, all to no effect. This is an S7000, about 7-8 years old, with no pri

There is a f 689 in the view finder. I tried both MF and AF , both AUTO PICT and P ,The camera is set at defalt settings.I need help or must return it asap.

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

I have been trying to get clear pictures of items to list on ebay. I have had a trombone and a suit jacket. I have tried most settings, different places in the house for light, etc., but they are never clear, the colors are not right, and the picture is too bright making the object look faded.

I recently bought a Canon powershot SX200is and I was using it to photograph my 4 year old grandson's birthday party, however a lot of the shots were blurred, these were mainly taken indoor, when I checked the camera settings I found the speed settings were ranging from 1/60sec to 1/6sec. I was shooting in P and AV, however I then switched back to automatic (auto) and took shots with the full range of options and still found some shots blurred, I think the problem is, the camera is trying to foc

The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto.

When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

The camera has auto-focus. Can you advise a fix? We tried the Reset button on the side ,but this didn't fix it. Thanks

The last two times I've used the camera, I can take only a few pictures (2 or 3) before the camera shuts itself off. It will come back on by itself, after a while, but I have to totally reset it to take only a few pictures, then it shuts off again. I have set the auto shut off to 30 minutes, but that didn't help.

I have a Nikon D40 which is coming upto being two years old. Recently I have noticed that the auto-focus will not work. If I manually focus I can still take photos but when auto is engaged it will not even try to focus and therefore will not allow me to take a photo.
