Fuji Fine Pix s5000-Horizontal lines with purple coloring mixed

When I turn on camera in photograph mode all I see is a bunch of horizontal lines of various thickness interspersed with purple color here and there. Lense will zoom in and out but picture is unidentifiable. Think camera software is bad but don't know how to re-install it or upgrade it. Been to Fujifilm web site, but found no answer. Is camera software ( Not PC software ) available to re-install on camera ?? When I go to Picture mode all I get is a white screen. Camera worked fine minutes before now it is only white. Changed batteries, pulled the card out, tried to take pictures but to no avail. This is day two of this problem. The camera did not get wet nor was it abused in any way. Setings were not changed in any way. I can still se the pictures in review mode perfectly.

Finxpix s5000 display has black/purple/pink lines


There was a recall (free repair) for the Finepix S5000 from Fuji.
It affected the ccd-sensor of many cameras.
It does depend on the serial number of your camera.
Email them and give them your camera details.
You might get it repaired.
They do not sell any ! spares .

Try them

Fuji S5000 mode switch?


That looks very much like the slector switch has slipped inside and is out of position.
That can be fixed if the actual and very tiny switchover pins are not broken.
I have repaired one switch actually with parts from a S3000.
Works ok but extremely fiddely.
Otherwise it is a replacement of the small switchover board, which sits on top of the battery compartment.
Problem being: Fuji will not sell parts to us.
Good luck

In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.

FUJI FINEPIX S5000 - Screen purple in Camera mode - No picture


This is a chip problem... My FIRST S7000, had this problem, and I had it replaced by Fuji {out of warranty}, now today, the SECOND S7000 is doing the exact same thing!

Contact Fuji at their New Jersey offices for info on how to get your camera repaired.

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 http://www.precisioncamera.com can fix it for you, they are a bit expensive but do a great job.

Scrambled Screen in Record Mode


First step -try pressing gently the casine from all angles around the screen- this may simply be a loose connector problem that rights itself. Do Not Try Taking it apart at this stage Second Step Fuji Technical Support. They may have a recall or replacement situation depend on the age and model of camera. Third Step Camera Store- for the new one- A repair situation will not be an economic proposition- assuming parts availability- often there are none
