I had the same problem with this particular camera. Here is the necessary steps to fix your problem.
1. Take out the battery because you dont want to short anything when you're inside it.
2. Free yourself of any static.
3. Remove six screws on the outside of the camera. Note that two of the screws in the botton are not phillips head. If you have a very small flat-head screw driver that will work.
4. Pull the camera apart very carefully. Unplug the little wiring harness by pulling up the little black clip that holds it in its seat.
5. Carefully remove the LCD screen. You dont have to remove any screws here. Just carefully pull it out. There is a peice of double sided tape that holds it in in place so you will fell some resistance.
6. Remove the two screws behind the screen that holds the lcd holder in place. Theres also one or two in the left side of that.
7. Plug back in the lens wiring harness. This is where your problem was. It came unplug from probably being dropped.
8. Repeat the steps 6,5,4,3,2, and 1 to put it back together.

Hope that this fixes your problem. It fixed my camera.

I have horizontal lines across the screen of my fujifilm f470 camera. what would be the cause of this please


It's a faulty ccd. There are several comments on this website regarding this problem. If it's under warrantee you can return it but otherwise you either have to live with it until the whole thing dies (tapping it might help occasionally) or repair will cost around $100.

Whiteout on fujifilm f20. how do I remove the lens?


Firstly, to isolate the shutter as the problem, turn the camera on and the flash off. put the lens into full optical (not digital) zoom. Then turn the camera lens to face you and look at the lens and take a picture.
With the camera in full optical zoom the shutter assembly will be right up to the outer lens so you can see it clearly. When the button is pressed you should see the shutter fire across the lens inside. It should cover the lens completely. If it does not or doesn't fire at all then you get over exposed pictures or lines across the photo. The most likely cause for this is moisture residue on the shutter leafs sticking them together.
To clean you will need to strip the lens down almost completely to access the shutter assembly. If this model of camera uses a sealed shutter unit then it will be impossible to clean. The only models i have found so far that use a sealed unit are the F460 and F470. Yours I am not sure of as I haven't opened 1 up but the solution for most is to strip it down and clean.
Tip: use another camera to photograph each stage to help on re assembly

The pictures turn out either as an all white screen or with lines running horizontally accross the image


This is due to the shutter not completely closing over the lens or not firing at all. The live view on the screen looks perfectly all right because the sensor is fine. The video function should work fine as this does not use the shutter, indicating the fault lies with the shutter mechanism or more commonly the shutter leafs are stuck because of moisture residue building up.

My F470 Fuji Fine Pix takes stripey pictures but when it is in movie mode it is fine


Your cameras shutter is sticking. lines on photo's or over exposed photo's are due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens.
Video is fine because it does not use the shutter.

The shutter will require cleaning.

FinePix F470 Lines on images and faded colors on photo mode.


You have over exposed pictures due to the shutter sticking.
The video is the clue to the problem. It doesn't use the shutter.
Shutter needs to be cleaned. This is no easy task im afraid
