Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera ?

Fujifilm S700 flash will no longer pop up, it still flashes if i hold up the flash,and it pops up about 1/16th of an inch but no further ,how can this be fixed?

Answers :

I use a bend paperclip to prop up the flash. Easy & cheap. Flash is always in the 'up' position but that doesn't bother me.
Fuji will fix it for $110, my solution was to buy a new Fuji S1500 for $132 though....

My Flash stop working, do i need to replace it? The built-in flash does not stay up. I can hear the clicking sound when it wants to pop up, but it stays in place. At this point it's pretty easy to open it manually, so I noticed what it seems to be a small spring on the right hand side. I guess it is there to hold the flash and it looks like it is off it's place. Is there a picture somewhere of how it is supposed to assembled? Thanks in advance, Gene
