LCD Panel doesn't work

I recently went to use my s5000 and I can't get my lcd to work. The eye piece evf is fine but I have been spoiled for to long. Is there a way to easily fix this, sucj as a light bulb or something. Or should I just use the eye piece viewfinder. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: LCD Panel doesn't work

It's amazing how a given day concentrates the exact same questions... one ady all the cellphones drop in a cup of coffee, and another everybody is pushed into a pool with their camera, and now everyones camera LCD is gone. Either the connection to your LCD was cut off, or the backlight went. Both shouldn't be expensive repairs, but with digital cameras I wouldn't be surprised if you get qouted with the usual 150 $ flat rate. The LCD is auxiliary i think, it's not like the lens mechanism or CCD died, and probably the screen doesn't need replacing, just the backlight. Get an estimate, if you're asking, then probably you won't be able to do it yourself(unless you find a step by step guide, and a good parts source). Good luck

No picture on lcd in picture taking mode

Have you switched view to the EVF by mistake? Other than that it sounds like the CCD has failed and needs to be replaced.

Snowy lcd screen and the eye view is also snowy

Test the camera by taking a picture and saving to the memory card. Then download it from the card to the computer and view it. If it is clear, the problem is in the playback system or the LCD.

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.

I have new batteries in my S5000 but do not get an image on lcd

On the back there should be a small button above and to the right of the LCD screen that says EVF/LCD. You might try pressing it to change it, this is provided you can see through the viewfinder already.

My fujifilm s700 takes pictures but the lcd screen is busted.. you can see the pictures and screen through the eye piece.. but thats it. What should i do?

The only thing you can do is take or send the camera to an AUTHORIZED service center for replacement of the LCD screen. If you can live with just using the viewfinder, like in the old days, the LCD being broken should not effect the camera operation. Set the selection to the EVF (electronic view finder) position and this will stop the LCD screen from coming on. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly. Thanks and good luck. (BTW: I LOVE my Fuji S700)

Yes, that appears to be the LCD.
You will need to buy a S5000 with a different fault and then change it.
If I cannot find another ccd-sensor, then I might have one for sale.

good luck germander

Above the screen display on the back of the camera are two small buttons. The left one is blue and the right one is marked EVF/LCD.

Push the right side button to change from the viewfinder to the screen.
