Customer Question
I have Fujifilm...

I have Fujifilm fine pix s-3700 camera.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your S-3700?

10 years. It will not stay on in the photo mode. Is it possible that the chip is full?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your S-3700?

Changed batteries and made sure it will work in the review mode. It simply will not stay lit in the photo mode.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

The camera has been flawless. I have taken thousands of pictures of it and it is like a old friend. Is there a way to repair it if it is broken.
