Question about Fuji FinePix F470 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Screen in toast!

When I turn on my Fuji Finepix F470 it shows a white screen with what looks like a large black spot and a crack in the LCD screen not the outer clear plastic screen. It then shuts itself off 2 seconds later. I can see the black spot even when it is totally off, maybe the LCD is leaking, I have no idea, someone help! Thanks.

Re: screen in toast!

That is definately a cracked lcd your describing! I doubt there is an easy solution but maybe... If you are able to get into the menu and disable the LCD that might help. However! The fact that the LCD is broken shouldn't keep the camera from running (though its remotely possible) If you can't shut it off or work without it the odds are you've got an expensive paperweight. At least thats what I gather based on your description.

There is a black spot on the digital screen. It does not show up in pictures but it is on the digital screen. Any fixes?

Unfortunately this is a permanent damage on the screen display - it needs to be replaced. The LCD glass has a cracked - the black spot is the crack. It should not effect your pictures when you take them.

Fuji FinePix F470 works perfectly unless a memory card is present

Some cameras are very sensitive when it comes to memory cards for some odd reason. I would try a different make of sd card.

Problem with F470 Fine pix camera

sounds like the keypad ribbon has either popped out of it's socket or, and this would be the common fault, the ribbon has broken. In which case fuji will be your only way to fix and get it serviced at the same time. last quote I recieved was £80.
source a donor camera on ebay for the cheaper option

White LCD Screen

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Applicable cameras include:
F303, F410, and F700

I used to get that error all the time with a earlier Fuji FinePix with the slide-over lens cover. If the cover wasn't pushed back completely, the lens would extend only so far and then give an error. Make sure that there's nothing (dirt, hair) on any of the lens surfaces and make sure the lens is fully extending when you do turn the zoom on. Don't let anything touch or bump the zoom while it's moving, either.
Not sure if this will help, since you have a different model. This is what worked for me, though.

Fuji f700

I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!
