Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Open Question

Camera won't go out of view mode

I have a Fuji FinePix S5000 that I bought new in 2003 and it has been a wonderful camera. I went to take some pictures today and when I turned the Power Switch to the Photography mode and it was in Playback mode. I move the Power Switch to Playback mode and it was in Playback mode.
I have taken the batteries out and replaced. I have taken the memory card out and replaced. Still stays in Playback mode no matter which location the knob is moved to, nor does the shutter button work in any position.
When I turn the Power Switch to Photography mode after taking the batteries out, the time and date should come up, but it doesn't, it just goes to Playback mode.
The photos that were on the card were not affected, but I can't take any new ones.
Please help as I love this camera and hope that it is something simple.

This appears to be loose connector to the motherboatd from the screen.
Try gentle squeezing of the casing near the bottom of the body
This may do the trick- otheriwise it is a workshop job and frankly not worth the cost - the money would be better spent on a more uptodate camera.

Your CCD sensor has failed. Common digital problem that uses Sony sourced CCD chips. Proffesional factory replacement of CCD is only fix or buy another physicaly damaged unit and swap CCD boards. Not hard but intricate and time consuming.

I am afraid your CCD is faulty.
No diy possible unless you can find a working CCD-chip.

Sounds like the CCD (main image sensor) is dead. It should be covered under warranty. It doesn't sound like there is anything you've done, or can do to rectify it. Get it in to a Fuji service center with your warranty/receipts.

Testimonial: "Thanks, Steve. I took it to an authorized service center and the CCD sensor was indeed dead. Warranty covered! Thanks again!"

My s5000 screen is all white in record mode. It breifly had a picture then when I pushed the shutter it went white again????


Does the EVF work? The small view finder above the LCD screen. You can switch to it using the EVF/LCD button on the right side above the main display. If it is okay then you'll likely need a replacement LCD.

Finxpix s5000 display has black/purple/pink lines


There was a recall (free repair) for the Finepix S5000 from Fuji.
It affected the ccd-sensor of many cameras.
It does depend on the serial number of your camera.
Email them and give them your camera details.
You might get it repaired.
They do not sell any ! spares .

Try them

Contact Fuji at their New Jersey offices for info on how to get your camera repaired.
