Question about Fuji FinePix S5500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My daughter dropped my camera. Screen broken.

It switches on and takes pictures but you cannot see the screen properly because of a big black mark. Do you think this is repairable. To send it away, I can't find my receipt but I only bought it in June 2008. It is a fuji finepix Z green in colour. Please can you help and advise me.
Kind regards

That screen is the lcd screen (liquid crystal display)
I had a fuji E900 that was dropped when the lens was extended , and it broke the lens mount ring inside the camera.
I took the camera apart to try and repaair it.
as part of the dissasembly I removed the lcd .
If you can find a parts camera.with a good lcd, it is worth the effort to simply replace your lcd.
if you need mor info email me , and I will try to describe the dissasenbly sequence for the fuji that I had, perhaps it will be the same for your camera.

The LCD screen comes on but is blank. Cannot take or retrieve pictures.


Hello my friend,
Did you drop the camera ?
Basically this can be Lens broken or screen broken. you can check that by:
1. try to move your hands around the lens and see if it will change something. 2. take a picture even tough the screen is blank and then take the memory card and insert it into your computer, if you can see the picture on your computer that means the screen is broken. but if you cannot see the picture on PC that means the Lens is broken.

My camera just shows a black screen and the orange light flashes


nothing unfortunately...
unless you have a thourough knowledge of digital cameras and the equipment i dont recommend attempting some DIY work...
if its still in warranty send it to the manufacturers and hope they will take it and fix it!
the other option is to take it to a professional who specialises in digital cameras, do not leave it with them without making sure you trust them though.

Good Luck

Black viewing screen and blank pictures


Luckyfourme,
Check to see that the automatic lens protector is opening and/or off when you experience black screen, as it should open letting light in when you power up the Kodak easyshare camera.
Good luck and Congratulations on your Daughters upcoming Wedding!

Dropped camera


This sorta happened to me too. I could take pictures, but my screen was black. I also dropped it...at a school dance. I ended up having to go back to Target and exchanging it.

if the resulting images are the same, you have damaged the camera settings/controllers. see how they look on your computer.
if only the display on the camera is damaged, you should consider asking for a flat rate repair. most makers offer a price for major and minor repairs, and never charge beyond that.
good luck
