White Square with brighter Oval in middle on LCD and Pictures

I have a Fuji FinePix S7000 and it recently developed a large white square that covers almost the entire image. There is a also a brighter oval in the middle of the square. This distortion shows up on the LCD as well as the downloaded photos. Fuji quoted the repair cost as 166.00 which is ridiculous. That's almost 1/2 of what I paid originally. The camera gets mild use and has never been mistreated. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any information!

    scrajmer,

    I think you might be on the right track. I did what you told me to and even though I couldn't really see anything, it definitely affected the pictures. I zoomed the camera completely in and out as far as it would go and did this a few times. Then I took a picture and the distortion was a lot better. Then I used the manual zoom and I actually got one picture to take without any distortion at all. Is there anything else I can do to completely eliminate this issue? Would I have to take anything apart to fix this? I appreciate the tip and I'm wondering if from my results you are able to pinpoint the problem.

    Thanks for the help!

Have you checked the lense assembly. One of the possible cause may be any of the lense element, inside the lense assembly may have dislocated from its fitting. Just swithc on the camera look inside the lense from the front and try to zoom the camera. if you happen to find any obsticle in the movement may be i am right.

My fuji s7000 zoom has coloured wavey lines when turned on. It goes back to normal intermitantly but at the moment it is constant Ian


Hi Ian.

If the lines are reproduced in the pictures taken, then the image sensor located behind the lens is starting to fail. The problem will usually get progressively worse until you won't be able to shoot regular pictures anymore.

Call Fuji and ask about repair. You can get a quote from a third party here: Repair.

Regards.

My fuji S7000 automatically shut down (Switched off) frequently while I am taking pictures. Let me know what is the problem?


If the batteries are OK, then the shutdown has a simply-cured physical cause. Open the CF card door and look for a small square opening at the bottom of the door. Look inside this and there should be a small plastic 'plate' or flap. DO NOT TRY PUSHING IT WITH A PENCIL OR NEEDLE etc. The bad news is that if you DO see that flap inside the little square opening, then your problem probably lies elsewhere. But if what you see looks like the tip of a pencil, then THAT'S your problem. The flap is there to keep dust out. It's thickness is needed so that closing the door operates the switch. Without it, the door seems to be open and the camera shuts down. If you can find an alternative for that small plate, your problem should be solved. One solution is to attach a small (about 3mm square) piece of foam pad to the tip of the protrusion inside the square. A typical example for this type of foam pad is what scrapbookers fasten photos into their albums. There will be other solutions - but the loss of that flap will be the cause.

My camera only shows half a picture after I take the picture on the little screen and if I keep taking pictures it goes all white? it's not the batteries. thank you


Hello - from a fellow Fuji user.
I'm assuming the pictures are looking OK on the PC when you download. If so this will be a LCD fault.
If NOT and the downloaded pictures are the same on the screen and the PC , then it looks like a sensor problem (CCD chip). I just did a quick search on the google.co.uk site and could only find 4 complaints , so it's pretty rare.
Try re-formatting the SD card just to eliminate that from the equation --

Plus there are S7000 forums to ask like http://forums.techguy.org/digital-photography-imaging/562485-fuji-finepix-s7000-problem.html
Hope this helps , but , if it's a sensor problem I hope it's still under warrantee -- Ray

Set s7000 white balance


Navigate through the settings menu's until you find the one that addresses the white balance. Either leave it set to automatic or experiment with different settings until you are pleased with the results. If this was helpful, please rate.

Photos are "whited" out, like a burned out image in the center


Did you point it at the Sun?
I think you have burned out the CCD/CMOS sensor.
The display wont have been affected.

If its not insured for accidental damage, its a bin job!

Cloudy white pictures


Cloudy images are usually a result of ccd gone bad. Try power reset, maybe it helps..

This is a CCD/processor problem for the still image side. Fuji Technical Help team will advise what your next moves will be.
