when i press shutter button my finepix 900 switches off
cleaned the card. New batteries.
How old is the camera? in months or years since you bought it.Has the camera been dropped or otherwise subjected to mechanical shock(s) in its lifetime?Has the camera been operated in or subjected to, temperatures below 32 degrees F (freezing point) or above about 100 degrees F ? Has it ever been subjected to a humidity higher than 85 % ?Has the camera been operated in a gritty or sandy environment, such as a beach, a seaside, a construction site, or the like?I doubt that these measures will help, but I still offer them for what they might be worth:Try spraying compressed air (of the sort used for electronics, the filtered-air kind in a can, so as not to introduce further particulates) into the crack around the lens assembly.Also try removing the batteries, and leaving the camera on a (dry, non-humid, non-dusty) shelf for overnight. Then put the batteries back in and try the camera again.
my answer to all of your questions is no/don't think so.
As i switch the camera on the lens ejects as normal. The camera shuts down as soon as I click shutter.
How old is the camera? measured in months or years since it was purchased.
Sorry forgot to answer that one! It's approx 5 yrs old
If it is 5 years old, then it is probably not worth fixing owing to its age - and it is certainly out of warranty.(The reason it would be not worth fixing owing to age would be, that at 5 years or more it is likely to fail or break in some other fashion not too long after it is fixed for the current problem.)( If the alternative is to throw it away and you don't feel like having it fixed at your expense, you might want to try giving it a slight blow... which might free up the apparently jammed shutter. But, you could damage it still further, and the chance of this fixing the problem permanently is negligible. )If you'd like to look into having it repaired, go tohttp://camerarepair.fujifilm.co.uk/which will allow you to get an estimate of the cost of servicing for your camera.

Ok thanks Russell. One last question.....Can you reccommend a replacement camera? Nothing special, just a decent everday camera.Up to around £150.00?
Canon and Olympus and Nikon are possibly the best names in cameras, though some would say Olympus might be left out of that list.But I take it you are not looking for something top-of-the-line, but rather a fairly good camera at a modest price. FujiFilm cameras, as you can see, can have defects.But a lower-end Canon camera might suit you, I suppose -?The Canon Powershot A1200 might do for you, then... it is within your price range, according to this listing from pricerunner.co.uk :http://www.pricerunner.co.uk/pl/29-2671300/Digital-Cameras/Canon-PowerShot-A1200-Black-Compare-PricesI would recommend using Amazon.co.uk from those listings, if any of them (I am not quite sure whether the prices and offerings in this listing are new or new-condition or used or in what condition... but obviously the Powershot A1200 is a lower-priced Canon camera of everday but adequate quality...) owing to Amazon's good reputation overall. The price(s) offered may not be lowest, but their merchants are possibly best, XXXXX XXXXX would be worth it to you to get good quality rather than lowest price, since you have already looked for lower-price listings.
