FUJIFILM Australia Camera Repair Procedure

If you believe your camera does have a fault, it will need to be looked at by our Camera Repairs Technicians at our Sydney head office for assessment. We do not provide quotes or estimates until we have inspected the camera.

Please print out and complete the Camera Repairs Lodgement Form. Please send the lodgement form along with your camera ensuring the camera is packaged well, making sure it is secure and does not move around in the box.

Make sure to fully describe the problem or fault you are experiencing, including prints if you think that will help identify the problem (these will not be returned). You should also include any accessories that may be affected by the problem you are having. For example, if you suspect the camera has a power problem, make sure you include the batteries you are using and associated power charger in the box with your camera. Be sure that you make a list of everything that you are sending to us as this will be logged.

If you are claiming the repair under warranty, you will need to provide your proof of purchase (receipt). Photocopies of this document are acceptable. Please note the terms of the warranty are strict.

The quotes are free and if you do not wish to proceed with the repair we will return it to you free of charge. Repair costs generally start from $128 Ex GST plus parts. Once your camera has been received and booked into our system, you will receive a letter of acknowledgement providing you with a Job Reference Number.

You should send your camera via registered mail or Australia Post Express to:
