Question about Fuji FinePix E900 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lines on photos taken with Fuji FinePix E900, but not videos?

There are bowed lines showing on my photos in playback/display and when transferred to computer. Videos replay just fine. Have I changed some setting that is causing this. Also, when I go to snap the picture, it clicks when recording (I don't remember if it always did this). Pictures look great ... except for those pesky lines. :-) I've barely used this camera. Thoughts?

Lines displayed on your pictures during play back seem to be a common problem with some of the models of fuji that I have repaired and all that I can suggest for a reason for this is Moisture in the lens unit. The lens unit on the Fuji E900 for example has 4 shutter leaves that decrease the amount of light that hits the sensor. Like your eye when you look at strong light. And 7 or 8 other leaves below the first 4 to control the light further. These are operated by electro magnets and guided on plastic slides. So, when moisture gets in and collects over time it seems to stick the shutter leaves together and the camera no longer controls the amount of light accurately enough and you get wierd and wonderfull paterns on your pictures. So far 4 fuji E900's and 1 E550 I have found this problem with moisture and It Isn't a quick job to fix either. But it is possible if you know what you are doing.
Hope this is of some help

    Video does not use the shutter so should be fine. Solution is simple enough but getting to the shutter involves stripping the lens down almost completely. Some parts of this lens are non repairable so once they are assembled breaking the securing clips whilst dissassembling will render them useless. GREAT care is needed during repair as the flash unit is still charged and will give quite a shock even when camera is switched off and batteries removed so watch out!

    so are you referring to take it to service center for service or any other fixes for it..

  • david May 27, 2012

    This is no job for a beginner. Because the lens is virtually sealed inside the camera body changes in temperature result in moisture forming inside the camera. The fuji manual will tell you to allow time for this to disapate and the camera to adjust to the enviroment temp before use. If too much moisture builds up and can't evaporate then it tends to leave a sticky residue behind. this stops the shutter working. As i've said before, cleaning is the only real solution and if your not up to it then sending to a fuji repair place is the only answer.

Could be a weak battery or a sensor going bad. I hope it's the battery.

Try the video function.
If this works fine then it is most probably the shutter sticking.
To confirm the shutter is sticking turn the camera on, put the zoom to full optical and turn it to face you so you can see into the lens. Watch the inner part of the lens when you take a picture. You should see the shutter fire across the lens. Lines on pictures or over exposed pictures are caused by gaps in the shutter or the shutter failing to fire altogether.
Moisture residue on the shutter leafs is the common cause for this problem.
Some people on here have their own views about what causes lines on photo's. Someone even said digital cameras do not have a shutter and problems were due to software issues....
I have dealt with 100's of different models, including Fuji's E900 and always have found moisture residue to be the cause.

Lines on your pictures are due to the shutter not closing completely. The video should work fine indicating there is no problem with the sensor. Shutter needs cleaning, inspecting for obstruction

Does these pictures have the lines when you transfer them to a computer? If so,, than it is likely a capacitor needs to be changed out which is causing the interference. If it does not show up when you transfer them, than it may just be the review program on the camera.

I have contacted Fuji but they say it will cost £99 to repair or have offered £50 discount on any other camera. I just want my F460 working ok. Please, please can anyone help us?

White pictures and lines across pictures


Try this to isolate the problem.
Switch on the camera in auto and put it into full optical zoom. Now turn the camera to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. On full zoom the internal lens will be right up to the outer lens. Now press the button to take a picture. You should be able to see the shutter cover the inside lens and then open again. Did it completely cover the lens? It should do. If not then you will get an over exposed picture or a picture with lines across it.
