Fujifilm FinePix F401 Zoom review

Up until yesterday I was raving about this camera to everyone who would listen to me. However, now, I too have the exact same issue with the breakdown. Details below


Screen has gone black, unable to take pictures or film, but can review pictures. 9/10 times the camera will switch on, 5/10 times the zoom lens will no longer retract back into its hobbit hole.

Bought my Cam in 05/2004 - would be interesting to know if Fuji considers this to be a problem or not. I have looked after the camera and all worked great til last night. I had not used it since Xmas, it had been sat in its case on my shelf, and had not been dropped. COme to switch it on and nothing.

Such a shame. It was a great camera. If it is indeed £100 to have it fixed according to Fuji then I wont be bothering. And I will be buying a new camera instead, and it wont be a Fuji, despite the quality. I expect items I cuy to last longer than 20 months or so. Esp when they are £150.
