Question about Fuji FinePix F402 Digital Camera

LCD display looks like an xray, has white border around edges, and photos turn out with red & white lines

Dear sir or madame: if i were to try to focus on any subject, my LCD display looks almost like an xray image, you can see shapes, but the colours are not realistic; and there is an irregularly shaped white border around insides edges of the display itself. very strange, this happened about three days ago. when a photo is snapped, the result both on the display and when downloaded is a very faint photo, no variation of true colours showing. everything comes out to look like only thin red & white lines. there is only the tiniest bit of definition of shapes almost more like an aura around an object rather than anything like the object itself. i took it into a camera store, because i thought it was the battery, which has never been replaced since i purchased the camera several years ago. the gentleman insisted it was Not the battery. he demonstrated that it still looked exactly the same on the LCD display when he swapped it for a battery in the camera shop. he told me it had to be sent away for at least a month, for someone to identify the problem and repair it in another city. i have been trying to identify the problem myself. and have checked all the camera settings, which are hopefully set correctly. i have also tried another picture card, as i thought maybe the one in the camera was damaged. i hope i have explained this well enough to have the problem targeted, and hopefully to solve it? thank you very much for your kind attention & help. sincerely, april dolkar

Dose the video out look the same as if it does then you have a faulty ccd processor or lcd itself is bad. It may be time for a new camera.

CobraRocket - I ended up sending the camera to Fuji and they fixed it for free. I had owned the camera for a couple of years. I went to Fuji's website and there are directions for sending the camera to the repair facility.

They fixed the camera and sent it back. Works great!

I wasn't using the rechargeable batteries. That does sound like it would present some problems.

Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.

This is a CCD sensor problem ( see enclosed image of one taken out of a Cannon camera with similar specs to yours ). Contact Fuji agent as this is repaired under warranty .48f4e65.jpg

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

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

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Each photo shows on the sceen either totally white or very bright with lines across

Digital camera lens is faulty at this situation, when you take movie the picture will be good, the reason for this is the shutter in side the lens is not working properly, if you can open the lens you will see the iris lens unit connection is broken, in some cases we can join this with soldering, but if it is broken at the bending edge, it is not practical.

White line on viewing screen

If the line is also on your photos it is a bad censor assembly, if the line is just on the LCD than the LCD is faulty. Either way you are looking at a trip to the repair shop.

Red line on the display and shows up on photos

if this red line is still on the picture when you open in the computer, I`m a fried you will need a new CCD. If the pictures are ok in the computer is probable some wire that connect the LCD are interrupted , or the LCD have some dead pixels.

Photos have horizontal lines

Ok, first of all......when you transfer the pictures to a computer are the blue lines still in the picture? Also if you reset the camera does the image still come out white?

A lot of times what happens is that there is nothing wrong with the actual picture it is the lcd. When you transfer the picture it looks ok you are only seeing the blue lines on the lcd. That means that the lcd is going out. If you transfer the picture and the blue lines are still in the picture after transfer then we can try to reset the camera as there is something else going on besides the lcd. More that likely it is just an lcd that needs to be replaced.

With a white image that usually means that the white balance is off on the camera. I would recommend resetting the camera and then try retaking some pictures to see if they are still coming out white. If they are then you would have to send the camera in to be repaired.

Red/White Lines On Photos and LCD


The scren is just displaying the input from the CCD (Digital Sensor that actually takes the picture).. If The pictures were fine, but the screen was funky if you could live with it then there wouldn't be a problem.

Since it's on both the screen AND on your photos it points to there being a fault with the CCD

Given the age of the camera, the cost of a repair I'm afraid it's time for a new camera. there's nothing you can do to fix this yourself.

Sorry for being the bearer of bad tidings.

If my advice was at least helpful please vote for me!
