Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom - Black strip down picture

When I look through the viewfinder I can see a black strip down the right hand edge of the picture. This is also reproduced on the saved image. This only happened after 2 or 3 shots of the group of pictures I was taking and I can't get rid of it. Any advice?

    Hi i have the same problem,

    Yesterday I tried to take pictures with my camera and found that both the viewfinders only displayed 2/3 of the screen. The remaining 1/3 was a vertical black band. The same black band comes out on the photos when I look at them on the pc. It views old photos loaded onto the card fine. The same happens when I use the video mode.

    I have not knocked it in any way so I am hoping it Could be fixed by a firmware upgrade.

    Please help,

    Pretty much the same problem; I can see (exactly) half a picture perfectly, the other is black. From the series of pictures that I took, I could see the right hand side fade gradually....hazy colour, then green and finally black. It's not worked since! - Pretty sure that my next camera won't be a Fuji, since my warranty has run out =[

If you see the black line on your images and it is a very crisp clear line then it is an issue with the cameras image sensor. If the line is less crisp and clear then it may be a more simple of contamination in/on the lens. If the line is crisp and clear and the camera is under warranty get it fixed or replaced. If it is out of warranty look into getting the CCD component replaced at a repair facility. There is an outside chance that it is just the connector which bridges the sensor to the processing board - but that usually manifests all over the image, not just in 1 strip.

How do i get the viewfinder to show fullscreen. At the moment there are 2 black strips down each side in "iauto" mode. When i first had the camera it was fullscreen. Thank you.

The LCD screen on the Olympus SP-800uz camera is widescreen (16:9).
If you set the camera to take pictures in (4:3) ratio you het the black sides.

Select a Widescreen Image Size (see the manual page 30) by selecting one of
the available Image Size settings 16:9 (L) (4288×2416) or 16:9 (S) (1920×1080).

Kodak C643 Screen black

One way out of the glare is to use the optical viewfinder (if your camera has one) to preview your image instead of the LCD. Another possibility is to buy a camera that has a backlit LCD.

Blured viewfinder

Look at the viewfinder on the camera.

Now look on the LEFT side of the viewfinder; just above the swivel-screen.

You will see a little thumb wheel there.

That is the focus for the viewfinder. Move it up and down to bring the viewfinder into focus. (Don't forget to do this while you are looking through the viewfinder so you can see what you are adjusting.)

Easy fix. :)
