Weird looking images.

After taken a picture, the image turns out to be weird as in the images has been distorted. For an example if take a picture of a box, the top line of the box is swiggly, and the rest of the box is just smeared all the way down vertically. How do I fix this problem? Thank you.

You ddon't fix it This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall. Contact Nikon support-this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way.

That is weird, maybe try to reset it by taking the batteries out and then putting them back in and starting it from scratch. Electronic problems....yikes.

Weird colors in viewfinder

Sounds to me like a CCD problem, which is a bad thing. CCD faults were quite common in the early S2's. It would be worth contacting Fuji about.

can you insert a few images into the thread to have a look at. Need more than one to check consistency of problem.

LCD screen shows weird colours

I got the same problem - When I take the picture and look at it later on the screen of the camera it's fine but when I upload it on my computer I get these really weird lines of different exposure. It's a laptop running on vista which is a new machine and never had the problem on my old computer.
