Its new, don't mess about with it, take it back to the seller and ask them to replace it under warranty. If you start to mess about with it, you may void the warranty.

Memory Card and the S5000


Fuji S5000 doesn't have an internal's a known motherboard/internal memory chip failure. Basically, they put a chip in there that will only last a couple years and then you either have to replace it (for a couple hundred bucks) or deal with correcting the settings everytime you change batteries (which will be more often now that some battery power is now dedicated to holding that internal memory settings). FujiFilm doesn't seem interested in correcting the issue via customer service either, very much a bummer!!

your S5000 contains a battery (lithium 'button' cell, I believe) which,
ordinarily, would enable the camera to store all the user settings. It
sounds as though yours (or its recharging circuitry, which is less likely)
has died. A year is rather a short life for these batteries in these cameras
but by no means unheard-of, unfortunately.
I don't know how easy it is to change the battery yourself on the S5000. If
you phone your nearest Fuji service centre and tell them how disappointed
you are (but otherwise very happy with their product... ;-) ) you may find
that they will do the job free - Fuji UK can be very good like this at
You might find advice on changing the battery yourself on the forums of
various digital camera sites, such as - the Fuji forum
there is at ums/forum.asp?forum=1012
Hope this helps, and good luck with your camera.

Looking at the screen and through the view finder, all looks green and purple? How can I fix this, I changed a setting somehow

I just tried changing the film type settings on my S5000. (the blue button, standard,chr, b/w) None of those changed the colors to purple and green. It may be that the camera has a failing CCD. It would be a rather expensive repair and not a DIY.

I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

Pink Foto's

This is an unfortunate problem with batches of the image sensors. Small amounts of moisture seeps into the inside of the chip and ruins them. The cause is well known to the manufacturers of the many cameras affected. It usually takes the camera well beyond the warranty period, although contacting their local customer service department may result in a "good-will" repair at no charge. Repair is expensive if you are paying for it. It wasn't Fuji's fault. The sensor manufacturer overlooked the moisture seal. If you "google" bad image sensors, you should find lots of information and see how widespread the problem became.

Fuji FinePix S5000 stuck in date/Time mode

Set date and time and camera should work. If camera asks to have date set everytime you take batteries out then the memory 3 volt battery is flat ... replace.

Old motors and mechanism is eating too much power, thats what you will expect after three or more years using your unit. Digital cameras lasts for about three years working in good condition, after that expect your head to turn using that cam.
