Fuji Finepix S5000

Hello and Happy New Year to all. I have a problem with my S5000. Turned it on last week, lens comes out as it should BUT no image on either viewfinder or LCD and camera shuts down after about a minute. I have been told that the chip is none too healthy and needs replacing (which would cost about the same as buying a replacement camera). If I cannot repair the camera myself I shall consider upgrading to a better model though I will have to save for a while which means that I miss out on the 'spring shots' of Bluebells and Daffodils. Please can anyone point me in the right direction for faultfinding and diagnosis. Also where couls I buy replacement chips etc..

Re: Fuji Finepix S5000

CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced by Fuji agent free of charge because properly manufactured CCD sensor should last 15 years at least. Otherwise pay for labor to have new CCD block put in ( 1 hour ) and insist on the agent covering the cost of the part.

We have a Fuji S5000 digital camera we really like. However, lately it takes shots that are more like artwork with colors running down the page. I looked it up and it appears to be the image sensor. Where...

Yes, it's the image sensor (CCD). For Fujifilm it usually comes together with lens and that makes it quite expensive - about 200$ here. I whink you should get a new one.

Can't see image in viewfinder or on lcd screen.

Bad CCD.
See if Fuji have Service Bulletin and will fix it for free under Lemon Law.

A few questions for you

If you take the picture and move it to a computer do the lines show up on the picture when it's on the computer screen?
If yes you probably need a new CCD. A CCD take what the lens see and turns it into a digital image.

If the picture comes out fine it may be a loose cable or bad LCD screen.

Either way can fix it for you, they are a bit expensive but do a great job.
