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

My Fuji finepix 2800z uses
Wow, these cameras work the best with rechargeable type batteries the Alkaline batteries will just die before you get 50 pictures. If you are using the LCD screen all the time it's a power hungry hog and will kill the best of batteries quickly.
You should program the camera to auto shut off in 2 minutes, review time should be about 1 minute and the camera should be in sleep mode or turned off between pictures to conserve as much power as possible.
I use a Fuji S100fs camera a lot for a walk about, documentary, time laps and generally shooting and can get about an hour of continues use from one battery and about 190 frames.

USB port appears not to be working
Consider NOT using the USB connection.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
