XT4 dead after firmware update

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

1) Just tried updating my nice new x-t4 to firmware 1.02 and now my camera is 'dead' !. Have tried leaving battery out for a few hours but that has not worked, . Have e-mailed Fuji and am waiting for their reply. Will also talk to shop where I purchased camera to see what they say. At the moment regretting my purchase . 😠

2) Received mail from Fuji Sweden , seems a nice helpful chap. Said to hand it into shop who can then send it off to Sweden for a 're-boot' and check.

Delivered to camera shop where I purchased it and they will now send it to Fuji in Sweden.

So fingers crossed all will be back to normal soon.

im new to this forum but no stranger to fuji 
@LEEP sorry to hear your having issues as well! 
I’ve been shooting on an xt1 since the first release, I just upgraded to the xt4 last week. 
As soon as I unpacked it, fiddled with it and connected it to my phone, it prompted for a firmware update and I figured why not.... bad move? Jury is still out. 

since then, randomly, maybe every third time I go to use the camera it won’t turn on. I’ll have to completely remove the battery and put it back in and it fires right up. It doesn’t happen every time, but enough to be obnoxious for. $2k camera. 

Formatted the cards, checked power settings etc. Fully charged the batteries. 
 

Yesterday I did the new firmware update to 2.54 hoping for the issues to be fixed. 
Nope. 

If anything, it’s even more buggy now, still won’t turn on randomly. 
 

And there’s another issue with the kit lens 16-80 f4, where at f4 it won’t auto focus if I’m zoomed in. But I can cycle power, and if it turns on then it’ll focus again. I haven’t looked into this one yet. 

Im hoping it all gets resolved with firmware, I’m patient for now. 
 

hopefully all goes well with yours, I’m hoping to not have to send it off

This sounds horrible. It may not be the time to upgrade to this camera. I read Fuji rushed to release this camera early to have it available for the Olympics.

Yeah, that sounds bad.  Check my post.  There is one dude, on the forum, and Ken Wheeler, who is trying to be helpful, to which I am very thankful.  Usually I try to wait at least 6 months to 1 year before buying.  Risky being a consumer tester for a new product.  In my case, I too had issues.  The "What Have You Done?" post.  Took it back the next day, but am willing to be as helpful as I can be.  If I don't have the answer, I'll ask around.  I'll definitely remain active in the forums, as I really do want to try and help Fujifilm make the XT-4 better.  Regardless of the hate I get from the fan boys.  I was given a beat down by "Experts and Fan Boys".  I forgive them.  And I still remain to be as helpful as I can be.  And Yes, I'm saving for new XT-4.  I'm taking the risk.  I believe that it can be a legend, once it is refined.

I do remember reading from the website, and from Ken Wheeler that you need to use an SD card for updating.  Ken Wheeler highly recommends using SanDisk 300Mb/s cards.  Just relaying information.

    • @maplineThanks for the answer,  I think i'm gonna opt for a wifi card instead, as it suits more my needs, (reducing transfer times and  timelapse real-time rendering). The hdmi thing would be ok if i wanted to capture video material, but i mainly do long exp/timelapses   Cheers
    • 1000 is a curious number - if you are using F-Log the minimum ISO is 640 - but haven't heard of any setting that restricts to 1000
    • I recently purchased a used Fujifilm X70 and there is something going on that I don't understand. Some times when I take photos the image comes up heavily distorted. It only seems to happen when I take a photo of a moving object, even at 1/1000 shutter speed and I'm not moving. I can understand some blur if my shutter speed is not fast enough, but this distortion? It only happens with moving objects, using manual and auto focus. I attached some images. The images are taken at 1/1000  F8. What co
