Fujifilm S5000

Most digital camera repairs run just over $100.

Since the S5000 was released in July of 2003, you should consider updating.

If you can find a new Fujifilm S1000, you can probably get it for under $200. It is equivalent to the S5000.

The S2000 has a few more bells and whistles (and image stabilization).
It sells for about $275.

Here is a comparison of specifications:

Probably means the File Number is Full.
Probably means the camera has reached the highest file number.

Time for a Reset.

Look in the User Manual Index and find the section called "SETTINGS".
Under that, look for "Set-Up"
On that page or next page you should find an instruction called RESET.
Do a reset and the camera will reset to factory settings.
It should work then.
