20 Most Recent Fuji Discovery 1000 35mm Point and Shoot Camera Questions & Answers

A camera is for recording images onto film, not reading the film.

You can download the manual at

The camera uses standard 35mm film. 35mm film is available in black-and-white, color negative (print) and color reversal (slide) forms (and others). 35mm film should be available at any camera store, as well as many drugstores and even supermarkets.

Parts are no longer available, and like almost all 35mm compact cameras (and many SLR's), your brother's camera is utterly worthless so repairs are totally uneconomic to repair unless you can fabricate a replacement latch yourselves.

Although this may sound gloomy, it's not. The silver lining is that you can easily find a similar or better model on your local FreeCycle or Freegle groups for zilch. There are millions of perfectly good 35mm film cameras lying unused at the back of peoples cupboards and drawers and the majority of owners know they're near worthless so haven't even invested in the replacement batteries that many need.

With a physically damaged card the only option is to send it to a data recovery specialist. But their services cost a fortune, so unless the images you wish to save are invaluable then the only "fix" is to discard the card and the images and replace it with a new one.

If there is any electrical contact showing at all then you *might* be able to cobble together a temporary fix by using electrically conductive glue (from electronics shops, not cheap) to stick a temporary contact made from a tiny cut-off piece of an aluminium drinks can (make sure that you sand all paint and varnish from both sides of the aluminium). If you have excellent soldering skills then you may be able to solder on a temporary contact, but it's difficult to do without overheating the component. Either way, the job needs to be really neat to avoid damaging the camera contacts and it's safest to use an external card reader which can be replaced cheaply and easily if the "fixed" card damages the contacts.

Sounds interesting - what does it mean ?

Follow the "instructions" in the "manual"

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

Ebay or Fuji, possibly ?

This query does not appear to relate to any model of camera - are you sure you have posted it in the correct forum ?

Simply download it from Fuji website! If that is not possible, google it.

It sounds like maybe one of the pins are broke, I wold try flashlight and magnifying glass to inspect it, If you find one of the mettle contacts on the card is broke it is probably ok to just pull it out firmly it will break the card contacts but I doubt it will harm you camera ~T?M~

Is the display blank only after taking pictures, or blank all the time (i.e., can you see the menus)? If you can see the menus, try performing a Reset All (page 67 in the manual). The idea here is to set the contrast/backlighting to factory presets.

The manual can be found here.

If the display is blank all the time, try holding it near a bright light and look at it from different angles to see if you can see any image on the display (if the backlight isn't working, you may be still able to see items on the display). If that's the case, you may be able to navigate to the menus and perform a Reset All.

Otherwise, pull the batteries out and leave them out for a longer period of time - several days, if possible. This should also reset the camera.

Failing this, you will likley need to send it in for repair.
