Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White screen Hello, I have a Fuji S5000 Digital Camera that has never caused me any problems. I was using both the movie and photo functions this afternoon when, all of a sudden, the EVF/LCD screen turned white. I have removed the batteries, turned the camera on and off and have reviewed the troubleshooting information in my manual. At this point, when the camera is turned on, all I see is a white screen. If I try to take a photo, the camera will take a picure, but when I go into playback mode, I see the same white screen only. Pictures I took before this issue started have been correctly saved on the xD Card and can be reviewed properly. Do any of you have a suggestion as to what the cause of this may be and how I might be able to fix it? Thank you very much!

    I have exactly the same problem with my Fuji S5000 Digital camera. I use it in the AM yesterday with no problems. Today I have a white screen on the LCD and also when I switch to the view finder. Pictures I took yesterday were stored correctly. Pressing the shutter button today just results in a blank image being store on the XD. I have switched out XD cards and batteries to no avail.

    Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

    Same issue!!!! My camera is nearly 5 years old. I took one photo - then when I tried to take a second, I had a slightly pink, green 'oily' looking screen, and then within one minute, it became completely white. Very disappointing from what has been an excellent camera!

    Same problem!!

    I did not use my camera in about 6 months and now, when I really needed it, I only have a white screen. CCD seems to be dead. Any ideas how expensive is repairing?

Your CCD is faulty.
No DIY repair possible because no spares from Fuji available.
A Fuji repair is not worth it.

Only get a white screen when i turn on camera.


I would contact Fuji as S5000 have been known to have the problems with the CCD sensor going out which causes the screen to go white. Fuji's number is:

(800) 800-3854 and select option 1 M-F 9:00AM-8:00PM EST
Sat-Sun 10:00AM-6:00PM

White screen, white photos


This is a CCD sensor problem ( see enclosed image ) ; has to be replaced. Contact Fuji agent in your area because this problem on this model is repaired under warranty ( the manufacturer has installed a faulty sensor when the camera was manufactured ).e159388.jpg

This appears to be loose connector to the motherboatd from the screen.
Try gentle squeezing of the casing near the bottom of the body
This may do the trick- otheriwise it is a workshop job and frankly not worth the cost - the money would be better spent on a more uptodate camera.
