Question about Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fuji F50fd suddenly has only a white screen when turned on. No display at all. It still takes photos, however you cannot see them or see if you are zooming or see any menus, etc. Camera was in a case in my purse, not dropped or damaged in any way.

    I don't have the proper screwdriver to open this camera up and check. The screws have a 3-sided groove in them that requires some special screwdriver.

    I used a very small flat screwdriver and some brute force and was able to remove the strange screws, then I took the camera apart, removed the ribbon that connected the display from the main part of the camera, re-inserted it (which was difficult as the ribbon was not stiff), and it worked! Put the camera back together and all is well. Note: any wrist strap attached will have to be removed in order to take the camera apart, and there is a hidden screw under the A/V OUT flap on the side of the camera. Cheers!

Either the screen ribbon has moved in it's socket or it has split. Only way to find out is to open the camera. A good light source and a magnifier will show any breaks in the ribbon, could also try a trick with a felt tipped pen to see if the ribbon is split. But before that make sure it's seated correctly

Hello, I have fuji finepix F50fd camera. It suddenly takes blurred pictures. The lens is clean and there are no messages on the screen. Can't remeber dropping it or damaging it in any way. Regards, Sofia


Welcome to FixYa.

There are three reasons why do you get a blurred images.

1. The camera lens is dirty
- clean the lens with soft and dry cloth
2. AF frame (lit red) and !AF appeared when taking pictures.
- check the focus on the subject and take pictures
3. A small camera icon appeared when taking pictures
- It may cause camera shae. Hold the camera steadily.Use flash photography. A tripod may be recommended, depending on the scene and mode.

Feel free to send us comments or suggestions if this solution was helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I applied lens cleaning fluid directly to the lens of my camera, a Fuji F50FD digital compact, but it seems to have leaked into the lens housing. Any photos I now take appear with mutiple fine white...


This is not something I would recommend you do without the proper knowledge or alignment tools. You would probably just end up with a brick instead of a camera. Sending it to a repair center would be very expensive. Possibly much more than the camera is worth.

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

That doesn't sound so bad, even though it could be not the screen but the drivers which are causing the fault. I would pay $25 for your camera plus shipping and eventually customs (needs to arrive in Germany).

Finepix f50fd camera working bar cracked screen.


Thank you for your reply. Since using the F50fd doesn't make any sense without the display screen, I need to hope that the problem your camera has really concerns the display screen and not any other electronic components (e.g. display drivers). Also, I need to hope that my working screen will be compatible to your camera - something Fuji easily could have tried to impede.

Why is your screen actually cracked? What happened?

Fuji finepix 50fd camera has a cracked screen. Camera still works. 1/3 of the screen still works. Can I fit a new sceen? where do I get one from?


This isn't something I would attempt myself (and I'm pretty good with a soldering gun). Camera manufacturers have a policy of not selling parts, unless they are performing the install (accessories yes, parts no), because most attempts to install them result in a broken part, an even more damaged camera, and a customer service issue. Parts are only sold to authorized repair companies, where the installation will be carried out by a trained professional. Besides, isn't the liquid inside an LCD pretty toxic?

Transfer photos to laptop


Uninstall the Fuji Finepix Viewer software from your laptop. Use the Windows operating system to download and access your images through "my computer". If you are using the card slots in your laptop, the card should show up in my computer. If the card slots are not compatable with your new card, you can plug the camera into a USB slot, or use a card reader which will plug into the USB port. If you shoot at full (12 megapixel) resolution, the files may take longer to transfer than you are accustomed. Try downsizing the file size in the camera menu prior to shooting.

I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!
