Question about Fuji FinePix F402 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Picture is very distorted

The LCD works fine, but the camera is malfunctioning somehow. The picture is rather distorted and has no color except a hint of purple. When a shot is taken, it comes out even worse as mostly purple and green lines or blurs. The menus appear fine and so do pictures taken before the problem occured when viewed on the camera's LCD. It happened once for a few seconds on start up and went back to normal. Then the next time I went to use the camera it stayed like that and has been that way for the most part. The other day I tried it out of boredom after letting it charge up. For a second the picture was fine when I turned it on but then it got distorted again and I have no idea what's going on. I have some hope it is fixable because of the 2 seconds of normalness the other day. Any ideas out there?

First of all, if you're still under warranty no use trying solutions that might be only temporary, go complain. Since you have normality relapses, it sounds like its something a reset could fix. Follow the instructions in your manual on how to perform a full reset, in case you no longer have the manual i'll attach that part of it to my post(just from a slightly different camera, if you have a digital manual for the 402 please post it). Now, if that doesn't work, i would suggest you try resetting the good old way - take out all batteries, disconnect all cables, and make sure the camera just lies there taking it easy for a few days, then try again. No go? it might be a problem with the memory card, try replacing. If you don't have one available try going to a repair shop/retailer and ask for one of their cards just to test it as a last resort before sending it for repair. Good luck

My vivitar vivicam X327 only takes black pictures. Everything works but nothing shows up when I take a picture


If you transfer the pics at pc, is the same condition? Black pics in pc? If yes, then isnt the LCD viewer, sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your technical service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps

When reviewing a picture on the camera, fine white lines appear in the picture similar to venetian blinds.

I have a Canon Powershot A70 and when I take a picture now, the display shows a photo with horizontal lines across with very little color. Is there anything I can do? Donna


Dear dkserv:

This is almost certainly a CCD image sensor problem. The PowerShot A70 has a Product Advisory on this very issue and if you are indeed experiencing it, Canon will repair the camera at no charge regardless of how long you've owned the camera.

If the LCD screen shows this distortion in all shooting modes, yet you can see the menu (press the MENU button) just fine and/or any images taken previous to the malfunction without distortion then you've got it!

Call Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 (M-F; 8 am - midnight EST) and tell them you think you might have the CCD Image Sensor issue and they will take care of it.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Distorted color on image


You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."
