Fujifilx Finepix S20 Pro - Viewfinder and Screen Problem

My Fujifilm S20 Pro has developed an issue with the viewfinder and the LCD screen. The view finder is completely black and the screen has a large green "glob" in the middle. It will not hold the picture for more than a second. I took it to the camera store and they said that the aperture sensor is bad and the repair will be aprox. $250-$350 or to buy a new one. Please help! Thankyou.

SOURCE: viewfinder

The shutter remains closed on a DSLR until you take a picture. There is no way to preview an image that does not exist yet.

Being stuck with the tiny viewfinder as earlier cameras had is a good thing. Holding a camera out from your body will give mixed results due to your movements. You will get better results with the traditional method

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

SOURCE: FUJIFILM FINEPIX S5000.No image on viewfinder or LCD.

I think there is a small button on the back of the camera near the bottom that turns the viewfinder off and on I think. It should be in the manual.
It might have gotten bumped while in the bag.

SOURCE: zoom error appears in viewfinder on FinePix S7000.

Hi, recently got zoom error problem on my loyal fuji s7000, after years of service. first time, I was able to retract lens by hitting it gently while power cycling. 2nd time, hitting wouldn't work so ended up opening the lens barrel assembly. It inst that hard as described by some of the posts. here is what I did: 1. open up first three screws near lens. 2. gently pull out the front assembly, which composed of front holding part, focus ring, white toothed ring. 3. then opened up three screws near flash side, pulled out the barrel assembly. it also have a plastic ring in it. 4. noticed some dust around plastic ring, cleaned it. Wiggle the internal barrel, it moves back and forth. Tried power cycling camera few times to make sure it works. 5. put the ring back together in barrel first aligning with peg and hole. 6. put the barrel back in and tighten screws near flash. 7. put the white and external focus ring back on. 8. put the external holding ring in. 9. it is easy to align if you slide it inline with front screws. done and camera works for now. -Salman

Fujifilm FinePix S1600 The monitor display is not working. Can it be replaced and if so how easy is it?


It could be that you have it set for EVF which means that you are using the tiny view finder instead of the LCD screen? It should have a button close to the view finder labeled EVF/LCD, you can alternate between the LCD screen or the tiny viewfinder? This function if mainly to conserve battery power or if you are out in the sun and cannot frame a shot and so you use the view finder like the old cameras, hope this might help you?

I cannot see through the viewfinder of my new fuji finepix 1500


The EVF/LCD button on the back switches between the lcd or the Electronic View Finder. Basically it's a small screen acting as a view finder

Finepix S1000fd just suddenly quit working...


I'm not sure how old this is, but I had this identical problem on my Fujifilm Finepix S1500 and the solution was embarrasingly easy and it may be related to this same problem. If your camera has a viewfinder, see if there's an image there. If so, look to see if you have a EVF/LCD button or something similar on the back of the camera. If so, press it. What had happened with me is that my wife likes using the viewfinder for framing and she presses that button to turn off the rear LCD and on the viewfinder. Maybe the button got pressed accidentally. Press it again and it should switch back. Hopefully this is the solution.

My fujifilm s700 takes pictures but the lcd screen is busted.. you can see the pictures and screen through the eye piece.. but thats it. What should i do?


The only thing you can do is take or send the camera to an AUTHORIZED service center for replacement of the LCD screen. If you can live with just using the viewfinder, like in the old days, the LCD being broken should not effect the camera operation. Set the selection to the EVF (electronic view finder) position and this will stop the LCD screen from coming on. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly. Thanks and good luck. (BTW: I LOVE my Fuji S700)

LCD screen and Viewfinder not functioning


there is probably a problem with the connection between the sensor and the displays, I would send it back to Fuji for repairs, because it would be almost certain death for your camera for someone who does not have the machinary and clean room to service the camera to try to fix it
