Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera ?

When I take a picture the lcd shows all black? Is there a chance that I'm using the wrong CF card or is it a bigger problem?


Answers :

Fuji had a problem with the CCD unit and put out a bulletin years ago to send them back and they would replace, but they no longer can do that, as the part is not made anymore. I had the same problem.
LCD is black,no image seen,so it is the lens unit,shutter problem so get it to a camera tec.

Pictures missing some (not all) of pictures taken end up missing from the camera ; they can't be viewed on the camera or loaded into my pc. I know the pics were there but missing later. this has happened with two separate memory cards so I know it's not a card problem. I've had the camersa a few years and this is the first problem. One of the memory cards intermittantly comes up with a "memory card error" message but not the card that was exclusively in use when the problem first showed itself.


If you haven't done so yet, take one of the cards, reformat it correctly (please ask again if you need info on how to do this) and see if you get any change.\015\012\015\012Are you using a PC card reader to transfer the photos or a USB cable?\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

It shows a JPEG thumbnail with a file # and if you place the cursor over it, it shows a file size of any where from 2mb to 4 mb like there is something there but cannot view it. I know the pics where there because I saw them in the lcd screen. My card reader wipped the picture off when I downloaded so can't see them now in camera. Is there anyway to fix these pics or some

I have Moultrie game camera 160 ,the problem is that most of the pictures are only black and white .....only a few are in color ! What am I doing wrong ? Also when trying to veiw my pictures on the TV screen I can't view them ,do you have to use only the Moultrie SD card or should any brand SD card be able to be used ???


The camera defaults to black and white in low light conditions, so only daylight pics will be in color. Any SD card should work fine, but you may need reader software -- check your operating manual. Bill B ... Moultrie Digital Cameras

Hi Good Day... I just bought my Canon Ixus 130 last October 23, 2010 at Changi Airport, Singapore and am currently here in Cebu Philippines. Chances of going back in Singapore is very slim so I may not be able to use the warranty card provided since Canon Sevice Center here in our province will not honor the card. The problem is on the photo shots and no impact if i use the video. When I point my digicam to an object the result is very bright and almost you cannot see the picture coz of the

CAPACITY Problem I am using a 2GB Kingston CF card on my S9500, and at 5MP it can store up to 1000 pictures. Recently I had it formatted on a computer and when I inserted it back to my camera, the capacity went down to 590 pictures! i thought it caught a virus or something so I scanned it, then formatted it on the camera. but the display still says I got 590 shots left. so I reformatted it on another PC, and on Properties it says 0 usage so i'm positive there's nothing wrong with the card.

Am in Italy and my Lumix DMC ZS6 camera was dropped on a stone floor. The LCD is was cracked but the lens tracted and retracted and it took pictures. Two weeks later however, whenI wanted to use the camera, it did not turn on and the lens did not open. Is this simply a matter of replacing the LCD or could it be a bigger problem with the electronics. Would it be better just to buy another camera? Thanks!
