Question about Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera
When I turn my camera on I get static or irregular lines running across the picture, I can see them in the viewfinder and on the LCD screen, sometimes they stop for a minute but they are there most of the time. Is there a problem inside the camera?
Sounds very similar to the problem with the Sony CCD which caused an upset a while back. Although your model doesn't seem to be one which should be suffering from said problem. It may be worth an email to Fuji to see if your camera may be on the list. The problem is caused by a faulty Sony CCD which was fitted to many non Sony cameras and Sony cameras too of course. One of the complaints experienced was white horizontal bands across the LCD and if fitted the EVF. There were other prolems such as black LCDs or weird discolouration of the display. All of these problems carried through to the finished photo so anything you shot had any of these problems too. According to the US list of cameras fitted with this CCD yours isn't among them but it could well be that a factory in another country may have used them. It's worth a try as all the cameras effected are able to have a new CCD fitted free of charge no matter if the warranty has expired or not. I have a Konica Minolta G400 which was covered and they fitted a new CCD 18 months after the warranty expired. If it isn't the problem, keep your open on Ebay and buy the same model with a fault which doesn't effect the CCD and do a transplant. BMW

Do they transfer when you upload the pics? Usually, on these models, when you get the funny lines on the screen and/or in pictures, it's the main PCB in the camera that is faulty. Unfortunately, Fuji's parts costs are out of this world. Call them up to get a flat rate repair. Sorry
