Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera ?

Fujufilm S700 won't power on. New batteries and are in correctly. Battery door closed properly, however, the door covering the SD is broken in half. Will this cause the camera not to power on?


Answers :

Yes it will. The door activates a micro switch that cuts power to the camera when open to prevent accidental removal of the card and loss of pictures stored on the card. You can bypass this switch with either a solder "bridge" or remove the switch and use a piece of wire to bridge the pads on the board.

My Fuji 1500s 10 Mp camera will now power on when USB cable is connected. As per the upload instructions on the monitor, I am to plus the USB cable into my computer, then into the camera, then power on the camera. At which time the upload to Finepix Viewer should commence. BUT it doesn't. I unplug the camera, then have to open and reclose the battery door before I can get the camera to power on without the cable. This causes me not to be able to upload my pix. ANY suggestions would be fab!!!

Fuji a345 I have a 2 year old Fuji a345 which periodically has a problem with the lens cover not opening and, of course, the lens not extending into position when the camera is powered on. Generally turning the camera off and on a few times will eventually result in the lens cover opening and allowing the lens to extend into proper position for shooting pictures. Any ideas.

I have a canon Power Shot S50. The mechanical slider that covers the lens is loose. When I open it, it doesn't power up the camera. I suspect there is a switch underneath the cover is broken.


The open door button on a circuit board is usually micro. A loose cover will likely not make contact with this small switch. Take the cover off and tighten the screws on the inside. Try to locate the switch to inspect if it has been wore off, brok ... Canon Digital Cameras

My daughter's l18 has a broken LCd and powers on but quickly powers off. If I change the LCD, would you expect the other problem to resolve? My daughter's friend thought the solution was to go buy a l20 as a replacement. But a second friend (friend?) managed to break the LCD on that one too! Are these cameras known for fragile LCDs? I'm assuming the warranty won't cover - but might I be wrong? Thanks, Frustrated Mom in NJ

I have a Nikon D40 where the battery cover latch has broken through on the bottom of the camera body. It's similar to a door jab busting where the latch fits into the door jab. It looks like the bottom of the body can be unscrewed and I'm trying to find the part online so I can repair.


You'll have to get that from Nikon, ( the bottom cover ). I doubt if you will find it else where.Nikon Parts 841 Apollo Street, Suite 100, El Segundo CA 90245(310) 414-8107, (310) 322-6979 ... Digital Cameras
