Hi there: Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card. When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value.
I suggest you phone Photo Local support and tell them the problem and that you suspect the CCD.Ask for a repair quote for a CCD replacement.If the product is under warranty.

NOISY PICTURES One of the major
difference between a consumer digital camera and a digital Single Lens
(DSLR) is that the former produces images with a lot of noise when
ISOs and long exposure times, and the latter is practically noise-free
(though high ISO performance varies depending on camera manufacturer
and model). Noise
is apparent by the presence of color speckles where there should be
example, instead of a blue sky, you notice faint pink, purple and
speckles amongst the otherwise blue sky. read AT http://www.photoxels.com/tutorial_noise.html
Could be the CCD image sensor go to bad;
this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong
images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures,
and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash

Hi, You no need to fix this problem. This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall.Contact Kodak support this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way. They will do it for free of cost. Thank you !!
You get a picture with sharp and correct colored parts as well as parts blurred with wrong colors?
I assume this only happens indoors, when you use the flash?
It sounds like you are using Slow Synchro flash mode.
Try switching the flash mode to Auto instead.
How are your pictures coming out? If the photos you take after seeing these lines come out good, then it could be the LCD only. However, if you are unable to shoot, or the photo files are damaged, there may be a problem internally. You should contact Fuji to see if they have heard of this problem, and if not, contact local camera shops to see if they can take a look at it. Also, digital cameras and card will only last so long - they will wear out much sooner than their film counterparts did.
I had the same thing happen to me last November. Canon has a recall of sorts on a wide range of older cameras. Apparently there is an issue with the sensor. Canon will fix the camera free under this recall program.
Here is a writeup of my experience with Canon's customer support (good):
If your old pictures look fine on the display, then the problem is related to the ccd sensor itself. The purple color is displayed because of a problem in the signal transmision from the ccd sensor to the camera's main processor. This is done using 3 channels one for each primary color (RGB red green blue). If the connector to the sensor is broken, or got out of place (loose) because some mechanic shock or symilar, the data processing woun't come out right. It is purple because your camera's processor mess up blue and red signals therefore resulting same purple instead of blue or red colours.
In order to fix this you will need to either send the camera to a service center to have those connections checked (if your camera is still in warranty you will want to do this) or ask me for further instructions if you wish to try to dissasemble the camera yourself.
In either way the problem is fixable and in most probabilities a cheap fix will work.
Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color:
If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light.
If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash.
If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange.
If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights.
If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
