Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

White halfmoon on pictures

Hello Dar123, a week ago I started having the exact same problem with my S7000. A white halfmoon appears on the top of the pictures (same as the image you posted). Things work well with the camera on video mode. I wonder if there is a problem with the shutter. The only different thing from normal use is that I had not used the camera for a month and kept it without batteries during that time. The problem started afterwards, with the first picture I shot. This is the first problem I have with the camera (about 6 years old). Did you have any response from Fuji? Please let us know. I will ask Fuji; I think I am still on an extended warranty. I'll let you know my experience. Anybody else had this problem with this or other Fuji model? Thanks, Fixthefuji

My fuji s7000 zoom has coloured wavey lines when turned on. It goes back to normal intermitantly but at the moment it is constant Ian

Hi Ian.

If the lines are reproduced in the pictures taken, then the image sensor located behind the lens is starting to fail. The problem will usually get progressively worse until you won't be able to shoot regular pictures anymore.

Call Fuji and ask about repair. You can get a quote from a third party here: Repair.

My camera only shows half a picture after I take the picture on the little screen and if I keep taking pictures it goes all white? it's not the batteries. thank you

Hello - from a fellow Fuji user.
I'm assuming the pictures are looking OK on the PC when you download. If so this will be a LCD fault.
If NOT and the downloaded pictures are the same on the screen and the PC , then it looks like a sensor problem (CCD chip). I just did a quick search on the site and could only find 4 complaints , so it's pretty rare.
Try re-formatting the SD card just to eliminate that from the equation --
Plus there are S7000 forums to ask like
Hope this helps , but , if it's a sensor problem I hope it's still under warrantee -- Ray

Set s7000 white balance

Navigate through the settings menu's until you find the one that addresses the white balance. Either leave it set to automatic or experiment with different settings until you are pleased with the results. If this was helpful, please rate.

Photos are "whited" out, like a burned out image in the center

Did you point it at the Sun?
I think you have burned out the CCD/CMOS sensor.
The display wont have been affected.

If its not insured for accidental damage, its a bin job!

White lines appearing on display after picture is taken

I have the same problem, and upon looking into my problem, i recall reading that Sony had used crappy glue in which they attached the CCD to the inner guts of the camera, and when that deteriorates, which doesn't take very long, then your pictures will have lines through them.

I think i remember reading that Sony said they will replace all cameras within 2 years of their manufacture. Call Sony's troubleshooting and support and they may replace it for you.

Hope i helped solve your problem.

Cloudy white pictures

Cloudy images are usually a result of ccd gone bad. Try power reset, maybe it helps..

White or mostly white screen/ picture

My friend and I both have the fuji finepix s7000. We bought the cameras within a week of each (May 2004). Last week my friends camera started doing the same thing you discribed. Yesterday my camera also started doing the same thing. I have been trying to contact fuji, but due to the blizzard I am unable to. I was wondering what ever happened with your camera. When did you buy yours and where. One of our cameras was bought at Best Buy and the other at Sears. It just seems funny that both cameras were bought at the same time and both broke at the same time.
