Most likely a dead CCD (imager) unit. Happens to these cameras. Usually they are supplied with the lens and are expensive if ordered from Fujifilm - could be about $200-300. I wouldn't recommend using used parts because they could break down again sooner or later. I suggest you buy a new camera.
I have worked for Fujifilm.
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)
First of all, you do not need Finepix viewer. Make sure the USB cable is properly connected to camera and PC. Ensure that you have installed the driver for the s5000 if you do not have Windows XP. Then select "view" and the pictures taken should be copied to any photo prgram you select. or try a different cable if this does not work.

I have the S5000 and have found that the shutter lag does present some problem with action shots. You do have to focus on the subject, & then hit the shutter just as it comes into the frame. As to the blur, have you tried shutter priority? I recently took a picture of my cousin's daughter jumping over a dog, & got the action perfectly. (I will be posting it in my gallery shortly - I don't remember offhand what the shutter speed was). Set the shutter speed to at least 1/500, or even faster depending on the subject.
