Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S5200 / S5600 Digital Camera ?

Stuck flash on Fuji S5600

\015 Whilst taking some photos for some items that I wanted to sell on eBay, I rested my Fuji S5600 camera on my lap, with the flash open (or in the "up" position). Now stupid me was fiddling around with some cables, and sure enough, I felt the camera fall from my lap. I managed to grab it just in time, but in doing so, my hand landed on the flash, which pushed it down, but the flash didn't stay down. Once I got a better hold of it, I gently pushed the flash down, it clicked and stayed down. I then tried to take another photo, but when I tried, the flash refused to pop up, and the camera then shutdown. My guess is that the latch on the flash is buggered. Is there anything I can do? How do you pull one of these things apart? Is it even repairable? Do I chuck it in the bin and buy another? Come to think of it, are ANY of the digital cameras for sale today mechanically repairable?\015

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting". Since that item is not described anywhere else and the only turnable dial is the "mode" dial, I assume that it means to press the flash mode arrow. When I do that nothing happens. The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre

I am unable to suppress flash on my Fujifilm s9100 in any mode that supports flash. Even with the flash down it still fires except in Landscape scene mode and Super Macro mode.
