Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S5700 Digital Camera ?
My fujifilm s5700 has a small problem...
The flash itself works fine, the light that is, but it does not automatically pop up. It pops up about a milimeter or so, but not enough to be functional. If I hold the flash upright it works fine, its just annoying. Just curious if this could be fixed fairly simply? help!
Anyway if you are brave and handy you CAN fix this.
First remove the back of the camera - 3 screws in battery bay, 1 in the side above the memory card door, The two rear most on the bottom, two in the USB/video door, and the rear most on the left hand carry strap bracket.
Carefully prise the back rearward about 5 to 8 mm.
Now take a look at the two screw holes under the flash (when popped - or flopped out now that is broken) now go and bend a screwdriver of the type you used for the previous screws - you will need a 90 degree bend very close to the tip to fit in this gap and be able to turn the screws a few degrees at at time.
A little at a time lock the screwdriver into the screws and undo until the flash cover comes off.
You can then slide the shaft out of the flash to release the spring which will have the end that should fit into the broken bracket now sitting proud..
Make a suitable U shaped bracket that will slide over the broken plastic bracket and drill a tiny hole in the side where the spring will clip in.
make sure it fits really well and then epoxy into position.
Getting the spring back in is a fiddly job - I found the best way was to fit the end of the spring into the new bracket, slide the shaft just into the spring - the lever the other end of the spring down into the back of the flash body and then slide the shaft all the way into place.
I did have to file down the little plastic "blade" inside the lid which presumably is designed to assist the the (now broken) bracket from breaking....
reverse the dis-assembly and now you should have a working flash

Turned my fuji finepix camera on today and the screen remains white and I get no image of the scene in view. The batteries are fine and all the remaining functions such as menu items all work fine. The camera sounds exactly normal when it starts up but there is simply no image on either version of the viewfinder. Have replaced batteries and taken memory card out and in again.any help available please. Thanks
The iris may have stuck closed due to moisture or the CCD may be bad. Let it dry out for about a day if the iris is stuck. If you still can't get an image, then more likely the CCD is bad - take it in for repair. ... Fuji FinePix S5500 Digital Camera

It suddenly stopped showing the playback when I move the switch to position. This means that I cannot do any of the functions that require me to use playuback, like for example erase.

Reset option and clean sensor option are not visible in set up menu. Canon D20 I had a two spots that kept appearing in the same area of the photo so I looked at the manual and did the clean sensor function a couple of times and the spots remain. I had also done a reset all functions since my stepson gave me the camera and I wanted to restore it to its original settings. Now I don't see either the clean sensor option or the reset in the set up menu. Help!

My HP Pavilion 9000t cannot seem to detect my Canon ZR830 camcorder. Even though the Canon shows "DV IN" when I connect the firewire, after using system restor to roll back prior to Windows update, and after updating the IEEE driver in device manager, the computer can't find it. Annoyingly enough, I was previously able to "see" this camcorder on my computer. No help on the Canon site, and no help on the HP site either.
First check if other USB device is working in the USB slot on your computer. Disable the anti virus or firewall from the system and then connect cam corder . ... Canon Digital Cameras

Do you have a easy to understand diagram that simply describes the operation of the back side of the camera as to what all of the button choice mean, i.e. , bs, menu , etc. Also in one area on the back side, there is a square with a button in the middle and four lines pointing in different directions just as you would view north, south, east and west. I assume that 2 of the lines assist in moving the view of the pictures forward and backwards. Any help that you can provide would be most help
