    Hi..

    Just received one of these Digital Camera's.
    However it will not power off when the switch is turned to the "Off"
    position. It sems to stay in "playback" mode and eventually powers off after
    2 minutes. (which is the default power save setting"
    I'm assuming that switching to the "off" position the Camera should power
    off immediatly?

    Cheers

    GD

    Yes, within a second or two. While it sounds as if the camera is
    defective, the Fuji does have a menu option to drain the batteries,
    so make sure that option hasn't been enabled. I'd assume that even
    if it was enabled, once it finished discharging the batteries it
    would revert to its normal setting. But as I haven't had any direct
    experience with that feature it's best to check it yourself, as it's
    possible that a software/firmware bug rather than a defective switch
    or other hardware malfunction is causing the problem.

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for that.

    The menu option in the S5500 is just an "ok" selection via its setup menu.
    Cant find any eneabe/disable setting.
    Its the only thing that is wrong with the Camera ,everything else works
    fine.
    I agree with you on the Firmware/Software causing the issue, i will give
    Fuji UK a call when they are open. hopefully the will honour a non UK
    sourced Fuji Warranty

    This is one of the hazards of buying online..getting a "non uk" Camera for a
    prezzie..past the 28 days the retailer will replace it at..still its a fab
    camera for the money.

    Regards
    Graham
