Problem with focusing on Fuji finepix S5000
\015 Hi, not sure how it happened, might be after I dropped it from about half meter on carpet. Everything works fine including zoom, but all pictures are unclear and out of focus - in and out doors with or without flash... Not sure if I am imagining that but sounds as if the camera is not taking enough of time to focus before taking picture.Would be very grateful for any advice - had the camera for about 4 years now, is it worth repairing?Many thanks Blanka\015
I would say not because: The focus mechanism is a contrast detection and is built into the firmware/CCD of the camera. There is no focus benchmark that the camera can fall back on, ie. rangefinder type camera that knows infinity setting. Or more of a possibilty is that an internal lens has broken loose from a mount and the focus just gives up as it cannot attain a lock, like when youare too close to a subject. Either way it is a professional repair unless you want to dive in. Just get yourself a set of jewelers screwdrivers and another digital camera so you can take pictures of every phase of disassembly for refference. As a 3.2/6.4 camera, there are cameras out now that are more advanced and less expensive that a repair, which would more than likely be a flat rate of $150+ and you would still have an older camera. Kodak makes a very nice camera such as yours for under $200.

Fuji finepix f50 camera was dropped with lense out, and now wont return. it also says focus error on screen. I have the same problem and Fuji want £88.00 to repair it - you can buy a new camera for £99.00!
Unfortunately dropping this model, and the f40, 45, 47 fd models, is suicidal for the camera. The lens has an inner slide ring which other models do not have and this ring has three lugs to keep the lens from spinning when powered up and used. Unfort ... Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital Camera
My Fuji Finepix z1 is having a few problems. When I slide it to on, I can focus on something take a pic but then it swithches itself off without saving it. I thought it may be the battery but it is telling me the battery is fully charged. It doesn't seem to be saving any new vids I take either,as soon as i stop recording I get "Write Error" across the screen and it switches off.. A few months after I had it the sound output in Video mode stopped working, although when I transfered it to my P.

Have you tried using the Zoom control. If the lens does not change its length (both focal and physical) then it looks like a lens problem. Just make sure that you have the mode control set to the little camera (for pictures) before you sw ... Fuji Digital Cameras
Fuji S5000 I have a Fuji S5000 digital camera. It hasn't been a problem for me ever before and i have taken the best care of it. The screen see's the image but is covered in horizontal flickering pink and gray lines. What is the problem and if its repairable where from and how much will it cost? Thanks Shane
A few questions for youIf you take the picture and move it to a computer do the lines show up on the picture when it's on the computer screen? If yes you probably need a new CCD. A CCD take what the lens see and turns it into a digi ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

I have had and used my fuji finepix A204 camera for 7 years with no problems. My son had a new (fuji finepix) camera for Xmas and he downloaded the software onto my PC. Before he left for home he uninsalled this software. I can not now get my photos to upload into any of the photo programs on my computer. Adobe, my pictures, microsoft picture it or fuji fine pics. All these programs will not highlight camera but only scanner
When your son uninstalled the program, the drivers for your camera went with it. You could start using a card reader to download your pics...it's much easier and foolproof. ... Digital Cameras

I need a new BATTERY DOOR for my Fuji Finepix S7000. I tried to order just the door from numerous sources & they could not get it (because Fuji insists on me sending my entire camera to them)! This repair would take 60 seconds IF I could just get a door....I finally sent the entire camera to Fuji & they charged me over $100. Obviously the door is flimsy, but I love the camera. Would like to order the door ONLY (and maybe even a spare for future similar problem) Thanx!

Fuji finepix s1500 - difficult to get it to focus at close macro. I found that I have to have the lens at its widest angle for the camera to focus on a close subject - like at 2 cm like the manual says. If I zoom up just a bit then the focus changes and my close subject is out. Is this the way it is supposed to operate?
Yes. You won't have the same macro focussing ability at all focal lengths. But usually the important thing is that it's not how close the camera can focus, but how large the image is, so you'll often find that a longer focal length (i.e. ... Digital Cameras
I have tried several cards. They all work on my other camera. It is not a problem with my card (in case you were going to ask). The problem is after I format the card, it reads the "frame no. full" when I try to shoot. When I press the play button it reads "no images" Any Ideas on how to solve this problem with my Fuji FinePix S3 Pro?
1. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory.\0122. Insert the card and do the "format" thing again. ... Digital Cameras
