You can get screens for Canon cameras off eBay. My camera had a screwed up lens asm but I had to remove the screen to get to the lens, removing the screen is pretty easy (IMHO).

A loose connection perhaps
A gentle taspe may restore it - or it may not.

Spilled soda on a digital camera and now it won't take pictures. What can I do?

Most likely the some of the camera's electronics has been damaged.
The cost of repair may be a little less than a new camera. You can ask for a quote but they may charge for a quote unless you go ahead with the repair.
I recommend you put your money towards a new camera which most likely be better and may have more features that your old camers.
If the SD memory card is OK then you can use it as an addition memory card in the new camers.

Camera's screen is black, but still takes pictures.

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, try pressing the DISP button once with the camera turned on.

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.
