Hi,
Going to Best Buy was not really a good place for this problem. A lot of Camera Repair techs work from Photographer Supply companies. When you walk into a good camera shop you should see tons of darkroom equipment and a large section devoted to quality used cameras.

What you can do here is get a referral if they can't work on your model.

What is at fault is probably is one or more IC Chips controlling a sensor or two. To remedy this you have to short two pins on the chip, but the key is knowing which pins for which chips. This information is tightly held by the manufacturer. Still, should there be a shop or person in your area it will be the camera shop the pros use that will suggest one for you.

All that being said, your easiest method to pursue would be to send this camera to Fuji at a repair center.

I know this doesn't solve your problem with the camera. But, I hope this empowers you to take your next course of action.

Regards,
Worldvet

Have you tried removing the actual lens(?) to see if there's something inside the camera house that's not supposed to be there. I'd find it highly unlikely that the, thou who knows. The best thing to do, would be to drop it off at your local camera repair-store.

Hi
I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

Join the club of many s5000 users.
Your CCD is faulty.
No DIY repair possible because no spares from Fuji available.
A Fuji repair is not worth it.

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.

Fine pix fuji S5000


Motherboard is dead, and it costs much to take it to the repair shop. It doesn't pay off, for that amount of money you can buy a better camera. I'm trying to find a web shop and to check the price, so i could repair it myself, but had no luck finding it so far. Anyone?
