I have owned my f401, for three yrs, fanastic piece of kit, however the camera has now developed a fault, the view and store of images is a continual blur of green and purple but im still able to store and store perfect movie images so frustating !. It started approx a yr ago so I bought a second F401as its so user friendly butthis has now developed the same fault.
I have found a Fuji recall for faults on the f401 posted by Fuji for this exact problem saying 'fault caused by storing in high humidity conditions', my cameras have sat in the recharge docks. Serial numbers of my camera's do not match the recall modals but both mine have the exact faults.
Can they be fixed ?

The camera shoots continuously while the shutter button is held down.
there are three options for it
Continuous(Approx. 4.0 img/sec)
Shooting AF (Approx. 1.1 img per secnd)
Shooting LV (1.2 images per secnd) (Live View)
Press teh shutter button. Use up and down buttons to select the shooting modes. The camera will continue to reord continous images as long as the shutter button is held down. The taking will cease when it is released.
Hi, this is a case of defective image chip, also called ccd chip. You want to visit their web site for any support for this symptom. some manufacturer such as Canon have special free repair for few models of their own ccd problems. The only remedy for this symptom is replacing ccd chip on the board. Good luck -James
Canon Technical Support on their website.
I have come across this before with this model
a funamental fault perhaps.
But at three years- time for a replacement I think
Try Canon web site support first.
I have a blue LED problem too....One day the F401 was in its cradle with lights working all right. Next day they were not working. I tried removing and replacing the battery, I also borrowed a cradle, usb cable and mains adapter - but still no LEDS. However, the images upload to the PC as usual, the self timer works, the camera continues to take perfectly good pictures and, as far as I know, the battery is being charged. Any advice/comment will be appreciated if it helps to overcome this problem.
Incidentally, this latest malfunction is a bit annoying since the camera has already had a major CCD fault. I appreciate that digital cameras rely on microelectronics, but it does seem a bit 'throw-away' when you are told by the Fuji technical people that the cost of a possible repair is more than the current worth of the camera.
I have two conventional SLR (Konica TC Autoreflex and a Nikon 601S) both of whcih are working perfectly despite being 27 and 9 years old respectively. So much for progress, eh?!
apparently there appears to have been an issue with a Sony Component in the F401, see the following URLs for more information:
I am in Europe and experiencing the same issue with images coming out black and white and blurred. Hope to find some local support.
The speed is selectable from 3 types at the continuous advance.
Continuous advance: Single shot AF: max. 1.8 fps (live view and anti-shake are activated for each frame. TIFF image cannot be taken), continuous AF: max. 1.9 fps (live view, AF, AE, anti-shake are activated for each frame. TIFF image cannot be taken.)
Hi-Speed continuous advance: max. 2.7 fps (Anti-shake is activated for each frame. AF, AE, WB, and live view are fixed at the first frame. TIFF image cannot be taken.)
UHS continuous advance: 7 fps. (Image size is fixed at 640x480. AF, AE, and WB are fixed at the first frame. TIFF and RAW image cannot be taken. Digital zoom disabled.)
Actual speed may vary depending on the subjects and shooting conditions.
* Three frames can be taken continuously in normal and Hi continuous mode.
*In UHS mode, the images can be taken as much as possible to the limitation of the storage capacity. For reference, STD: 180 frames, FINE: 160 frames, X. FINE: 100 frames (approx.).
