Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.

camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Cannot get lens cover to open also no flash
Lens cover is easy to open. Two opposite side of lens cover can be press slightly and pull to opposite direction. Flash may not work for so many reason. primarily, low bat power, then bulb is busted or micro wire is lossen or no contact. lastly your circuit maybe not in perfect condition.

Any small distortion to the case will jam the dust shutter mechanism, as will dislodged dust and dirt. Remove the battery and carefuly remove the case screws. DO NOT LOSE. Lift off the front cover, take care with the top control knob and on/off switch as there are dust shields that may tear. This reveals the dust cover mechanism on the front of the camera. Dust off with an air-duster or soft spotlessly clean (new) paintbrush. Check a narrow ribbon cable is plugged-in at the front as this powers the cover motor. Gently guide the case around the top rotary control & on-off switch and line-up the circuit board beneath the rotary switch. Do not force anything together. Lightly re-assemble without screws and insert the battery - you cannot make this test without the cover-on as the case supports the switches needed to control the camera. Check that the cover operates correctly or is jamming on the case cover at the front where the shutter moves. If all OK replace the screws, else gently straighten the case with your fingers. This has happened several times to mine and cleaning it/lightly straightening the case cover always make it work again.

MX1700 - NEED HELP
First, ensure that both computer and camera are turned-off when you connect the two.
Next, ensure the your serial port is not servicing another application.... In my case the Hot-Synch Manager for my Palm Organizer conflicted with Picture Shuttle. I simply exited Hot-Synch Manager and the Picture Shuttle worked as promised.
I hope your fix is as easy...

Fuji-mx1700 and night shots
Use the manual set up ( the small camera icon with the "M" next to it. Play around with the flash settings and set your flast to night. Check out the manual on this feature.
I just got my 1700 last week. The Halloween photos were a lot of fun. Its also my first digital camera and there is a lot to learn.
I read every thing I could find on the web prior to my purchase. I felt the MX1700 was the best value. So far this camera has met or exceed all my expectiations.

Check batteries and the terminals that connect to your batteries. Often the contacts get corroded because batteries have acid in them.
