    My X100s is now dead.
    After turn on, it only showing this OPT: ELE:
    Cannot do anything, even turn off also cannot.
    Only can remove battery to turn off.
    I have even reset the settings in Menu but no improvement.

    My Firmware ver is 1.20

    Anyone have this problem before? I tried to Google but didnt get any relevant result :(

    Sounds like a major malfunction. I would send it off the Fuji. Hopefully still under warranty.

    Stick it in a container of rice for a day or two to suck out all the moisture. Certainly could not hurt.

    Issue resolved by service center. They use their in house system to perform software reset. This reset is different from the reset in camera menu, sound like low level reset. Now ok and FOC even no more warranty.

    I just found out after the powerful reset by service center, the shutter count also set to 00 now :)
