Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Fuji F700 Hi, where did you send your camera to in order to get the free repair ? was it still under guarantee ? I am in UK and on the Fuji.UK website I had to fill in a form where it asked for my seriel number. It quoted me a £59 = $100 repair or a £35= $70 trade in. Now whenever I return to the site it seems to know me and asks me if I want to go ahead with the repair or the trade-in ! Its not good as although the camera is out of it's 1 year guarantee , I have hardly used it . maybe taken less than 100 photo's . Anyhow , any help on your free repair might be useful. Thanks ... homemender

    OK . i'll give it a try .... might try the form again from a different location and PC , then it might let em start over although it did ask seriel number too so it will probably lock the form to that number .



    Thanks for help.

My camera is around 4 years old and they replaced the CCD under warranty. They returned it within 10 days and didn't quibble about the warranty. They can obviously trace the age of the camera by the serial number.

I am also in the UK so I filled in the same online form. However, I clicked yes to the box that said 'warranty repair' because I had read on the internet that several other people had the same problem so decided this wasn't just normal wear and tear.

I think if you just print off the form and hand amend it to yes for warranty and send it off. If they don't have your credit card details, they can't take the money.

Service Advisory to Owners of

spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif Thank you for your patronage of Fujifilm FinePix digital cameras.

FUJI PHOTO FILM U.S.A., INC. announces that some of the FinePix A303, F410, and F700 digital camera models may develop a problem with the CCD imaging sensor. However, the problem affects a limited number of units and may not occur in all cameras.

The symptoms are captured images that appear completely black, have a purplish cast or multi- colored distortions. These symptoms would be seen on the camera LCD monitor when the camera is in the shooting mode or during playback. A limited number of these models will have these problems. The following list of serial numbers and model names may be affected:

Model Serial Number Range FinePix A303 3JA4****∼3JA5**** FinePix F410 32A1**** 32A6****∼32A7**** 32A9**** FinePix F700 33A0**** 34A1****
Serial numbers are found on the bottom of the cameras

If your camera serial number is on the list and experiences the symptoms described above and have no other additional damage/malfunction, FUJI PHOTO FILM U.S.A., INC. will repair your camera at no charge, even if your standard one-year limited warranty has expired. If your camera is beyond the standard one year, limited warranty period, you will receive a written estimate for any additional damages or malfunctions not listed in this Service Advisory.

Fuji Finepix S7000 zoom error


If it is 'relatively' new then the best place is the place you bought from- under UK legislation they are responsible to repair or replace. If you are not in the UK then look up the Fuji website for your country- technical help. there is possibility they will direct you to a suitable place.
