Question about Fuji FinePix S20 Pro Digital Camera

3 Answers

Fuji s 20 pro

My S20 Pro has suddenly developed a problem whearby the view finder and LSD Screen are now half purple half B&W with lines running across the screen. THe digree of purple varies.

When taking picture the result is blured and purple.

I have not dropped the camera or had watter ingress.

Any help please would be appreiated I have the same camera that has developed an issue with the viewfinder and screen. The view finder is completely dark and the screen has a large green "glob " in the middle! The camera store manager said that he thinks the aperture sensor is bad. The solution, according to the store, is to send it back to Fufji at a cost of $250-$350 or buy a new one. If you have any suggestions it would be appreciated. Thank you.

Prior to this current problem did the pictures have a hazy contrast to them? if so then yes the apeture is faulty. if the cost of the camera does not exceed the the repairs then you should purchase a new one. this is the best option because i'm sure if you send it straight to fuji it will cost more than 350 bucks guarenteed. however you might save alot by just taking it to a local shop and have them repair it and you most certainly get it back alot quicker as well.........please rate this thanks

I need to have a Fuji S20 Pro, and a Kodak P880 cleaned, adjusted and overall adjust to the Factory Specs.


The best way to do this is to fine a kodak certified service centre close to you for the P880 and a Fuji certified service centre close to you for the S20 Pro. But first ask them what they will charge you, because lager is expensive and it could cost almost as much as a new camera.

Hi
I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

I had the same problem - called Fuji in UK, they denied all responsibility. Had a rethink, checked on the web, and then called them back with the following -
Fuji USA and Canada both fix this problem under warranty
S2 pro and S700 both on their recall list for failed CCD's and the S20 pro uses the same CCD so why won't they fix it?
Lots of apologies and they fixed it for free!

Fuji s20 pro failed ccd, where can i get a replacement ccd from? how much would it cost regards steve


A little research shows me that Fuji has undergone an extensive repair recall for several Fuji models because of failed CCDs. My S20 Pro just lost it's ccd as well. For some reason it looks like the S20 was not covered in the free repair offer by Fuji. Has anyone else had a CCD problem with their S20

I have four S20's great cameras when they are working. Three don't. All have the same problem blurred image then eventually no image. I have posted one today for repairs at a cost of £99.99 fuji include a new 12 months warranty on the entire camera.
Solution..send it to fuji for repair. Or bin it & change manufacturers for your next camera. Personally I love the S20 especially when useing Raw.

All images are vignetted


Recently my Fuji S20 pro pictures started to look like purple and green blurred water colour images. Sometimes there is horizontal lines in the pics. like when your printer stars to get low on toner. I called customer service. They said to send it in. My cost. They will send an estimate if I want it fixed i pay. If I do not and want it back they will charge me $25 to get it back. Or they will keep it and recycle it. How kind of them!!!
