BROKEN X100S // BROKEN FEELINGS


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I'm writing to you guys in a despaired tone


:(


About two months ago, my fuji x100s just stopped working.


I sent it to fuji Brazil technical assistance (Im from Brazil). After about a week, they sent the camera back to me with the following technical opinion:


PARTS NO MORE SUPPLIED FOR REPAIR // MAIN BOARD FCB2398A100 //


Apparently there's some kind of trouble on the "motherboard" of the camera.


I'm negatively surprised with this fact, because it's only 3 to 4 years since this model has been released, and fuji just stopped to manufacture repair parts.


I'm really don't know how to proceed. I tried others assistances and nothing could be done. Im also tried to get in touch with another FUJI offices around the world but them just said me to get in touch with the same FUJI Brazil that couldn't help me.


Fuji cameras has a superb image quality, but they probably should manufacture repair parts for 5 years after the release of the cameras.


I Think my only choice is throw the fuji x100s carcass on the bottom of a drawer, hoping to occasionally find someone selling these parts on internet.


With some one could help me with some advice about this, I'll be eternally grateful.

Hi

Definitely I would be dissapointed about this situation!

What are your countries laws about manufacture support for spare parts.

Maybe they may have a second hand x100s to replace your faulty one

Mainboards shouldn't fail unless you have dropped the camera.

Remember nowadays your just buying a computer disguised as a camera

Thanks

That is rather strange, I would be leary of buying a new fuji in Brazil again.

 

If you can't get a third party repair service, maybe get one second hand when the f arrives, prices should drop considerably on second hand s and t's. (maybe to the point of being cheaper than a repair anyways)

    • I don't have a definitive answer, but it seems to be that ON1 can get confused(!). Using this "trick" it is ignoring previous read attempts and seemed to have solved my problems. I had about a dozen photos that were problematic. Hopefully ON1 will fix this "feature" in the future. Glad it worked for you.
    • That seemed to do the trick.  Any idea why that was the fix? I think some of the issues on most of these may be tied to the matching Jpeg being an Acros film simulation.  That still seems to be confusing ON1 as the colors occasionally is messed up unless I set the Jpeg and Raw to be treated separately.  Perhaps its a coincidence . 
    • Hmmm. Thanks for getting back. Next thing to try.  Quit ON1 Create a temp folder Use Finder (on Mac) or Explorer (Windows) to copy the image files that have the problem, to the temp folder Start ON1 and browse the copied files IF they wok, then from inside ON1, drag them to their original location and when prompted, select Replace Report back!
    • Hello evryone. Just this i ask my self last 48 hours. For example: my question are? Tracking are think tò use for muve subject. Ok But when i shot my be at 360 shutter Speed i see face subject focus and other in muvment. I m sure if i shot in AFS or AFC the picture Will be more Better. Zona or point Notting change to much. So when i Need use tracking?  I have think the Only situation can use Is when you not can muve the camera. Or when you want take a picture of a background and subject muve.  Becouse if i shot in AFS or AFC the photo look Better ...  What you think about? Thank you
    • Ok great. I’ll try the built in flash to ensure I’m on the right path then look to invest in an external flash.  I’ve heard about Godox so I’ll do some further research.
