Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera ?

Hinge Pins The hings pins for the door to the memory card compartment have disappeared. The camera won't turn on unless the door is closed. I am using duck tape to hold the door in place. I tried Fujifilm and a local camera shop. Both said would cost $160.00 and take 6 weeks. Anyone have a helpful suggestion?

Answers :

Try a different store - its a common problem with this camera and larger stores might have the parts in stock it cost me $40 on the spot 
The camera itself is only worth 30 dollars now but if you look under the door there is a small black square if you wedge something in there like a piece of a paperclip or whatever you can defeat the "open door" sensor
or buy another fuji finepix s3000 (like a broken one from eBay) and pull the door off that one and put it on yours

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent. Recently took it to another repair shop and he inserted a card with less memory and the camera worked. Is it the cards or the camera? Will the camera work (with bent pins or whatever) if I get a new memory card?

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially

I don't think that it is something wrong with it ..but just the charger unable to load enough voltage to power it on ..Just look for another charger on line ..and try it ..cause If it was something not right with the camera it would not worked at all ... Digital Cameras

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

If the CCD were bad and everything else OK, you would see all the icons on the LCD (viewing screen), and you would be able to see images on the memory card that had been taken in the past while in Replay mode. The service letter you refer to covers r ... Canon Digital Cameras

"Please describe your clean terminal xd card dry cloth problem": Well, that is exactly what my Olympus camera tells me to do whenever I switch it on! No amount of wiping makes any difference. I also went to a local photography shop where they tried my card in a reader (with no response whatsoever), and in one of their cameras, and again there was the request to clean it with a dry cloth. The shop said there is nothing that anyone can do. Please prove me wrong! By the way, the card is an Oly
