Question about Fuji FinePix S20 Pro Digital Camera
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.
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

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.

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
