S5000 just turns off

After 4 yrs of great work, my s5000 goes off after a minut or so, sometimes even right after I turn it on. Bateries are new and I tried several bateries just to exclude that problem. What can be the problem?

I guess it is tired! Seriously though this can be anything from a worn on/off switch - retreats back to off. to an incipient circuit board failure. Any attempt to repair will be the price of a new camera- so that is the thing to do, Then take the old one apart and find you could have fixed it with a hair pin anyways

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power

see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

My fuji s5000 won't power on. It was fine one minute and wouldn't turn on the next.

Take out the batteries and check to see that they are still at full power using a battery tester or another electronic device. If so, try putting them in again.

Camera won't focus when using optical zoom

I had same problem. Found that doing a complete reset fixed it. Go into setup and at end there is a factory reset. If not working after that would suspect your ccd sensor is on way out. They should last 5-7 yrs. Be cheaper to get another cam with way prices have come down

Yes, that appears to be the LCD.
You will need to buy a S5000 with a different fault and then change it.
If I cannot find another ccd-sensor, then I might have one for sale.

good luck germander

A few questions for you

If you take the picture and move it to a computer do the lines show up on the picture when it's on the computer screen?
If yes you probably need a new CCD. A CCD take what the lens see and turns it into a digital image.

If the picture comes out fine it may be a loose cable or bad LCD screen.

Either way can fix it for you, they are a bit expensive but do a great job.

CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced by Fuji agent free of charge because properly manufactured CCD sensor should last 15 years at least. Otherwise pay for labor to have new CCD block put in ( 1 hour ) and insist on the agent covering the cost of the part.
