Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S6500 Digital Camera ?

Starting problems My Finepix S6500 was left unused for about 6 months, the batteries were removed though. Now, when I inserted new batteries and tried to switch it on, it isn't turning on. How can I make a firmware reset, if at all it is required ?


Answers :

Sounds silly but try turning it on slowly, sometimes when i turn the slider to on, it doesnt load up, but if i turn it to off then back on slowly it comes on. Does that make sense?

My Finepix s5800 camera won't turn on properly. I slide the power switch and the green light comes on for about 2 seconds then turns off. But I turn the playback button on, and it lets me view the pictures. I tried recharging the batteries, cleaning the battery terminal and making sure it isn't on the viewfinder setting. Help?

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?

I have a Samsung TL220. I was taking pictures yesterday and all of a sudden the camera shut off but didn't retract the lense.

Dsc-P73 When I try to turn on my camera, the power on light appears bfor about a second and the startup sound starts, then the camera switches off. The batteries are new and there seems to be nothing else wrong with the camera. I have tried reseting but to no avail.


Still it sounds like weak batteries. Be sure to use either rechargeable batteries ( charge for a minimum of 14 hours ) or alkaline. DO NOT USE "heavy duty" carbon-zinc cells - they're only good for low power equipment. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

I last used my camera about a week ago with no problems. Now, I can't even turn it on. I have not even touched it since, so I'm not sure why it will not work. I was wondering if maybe there was a reset button on it somewhere, but I can't find anything. I have tried switching batteries, and that doesn't work either.

I have a D5000 camera w/ kit lens VR 55-200, less than a year old. Recently and only occasionally what is happening is when I press the shutter release button, the lens won't focus, it won't move in or out and it makes a odd noise, not the usual lens motor noise, but an odd squeaking noise, like it's trying to move but is stuck. The only way to correct it is to either shut the camera off and turn it back on again, or switch to manual focus, then back to auto. The battery is full, so it's not

My camera fell on my floor when I was trying to film a video. Now it is stuck with the lens out, and when I try to turn it on it makes a weird noise, stops, makes it again, makes a new 'bloop' powering off noise, and that's it. I can click the little play button in the square to view my pictures and it will make noise and turn on and I can go through my settings but it will not let me switch to actual camera/video mode!
