Finepix S7000 problems

I have had this camera for at least 3 years and it gets a round while circle in the middle and sometimes a white outside frame. After about 20 pics it seems to go away. It happens every time I use the camera. When it isn't doing this it sometimes goes into a no reception mode like on TV with all sqiggly lines. These problems happen so often now I rarely use the camera and I used it almost every day. My husband wrote to a place that fixes cameras and they told him it sounded like the ccd whatever the hell that is. They also told him it would be cheaper to send it to Fuji to repair. Any input is appreciated.

3 years is very old for a digi cam. Insofar the way they improve so rapidly Best bet would simply get the next one A repair would cost almost as much even if they offered to do it.

Zoom error appears in viewfinder on FinePix S7000 and cannot take photos.. Please 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. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Per the owner's manual:

  1. Insert a formatted media into the camera.
  2. Set "RENEW" as the FRAME NO. setting in the SET-UP menu.
  3. Start taking pictures. (the frame numbers start from "100-0001".)
  4. Set "CONT." as the FRAME NO. setting in the SET-UP menu.
Then you're done. We just did this on ours and now we're ready to go. God Bless.

Finepix S7000 problems

I don't know if this is the same problem, but a few months ago, I was getting a small circle in the same spot, every time I took a photo and the colour in that area of the picture was light. You can see it in the photo I've posted here, on the left side midway between the top and bottom. __I took it into Fuji, and I think they cleaned the CCD. It only cost about $50, and the problem is gone! Hope this helps.

White Square with brighter Oval in middle on LCD and Pictures

have you checked the lense assembly. One of the possible cause may be any of the lense element, inside the lense assembly may have dislocated from its fitting. Just swithc on the camera look inside the lense from the front and try to zoom the camera. if you happen to find any obsticle in the movement may be i am right.
