Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera
Can't focus as it's all blurry. So, I took the camera to a camera shop. They said for them to fix it, it would be sent out, may take quite a while and be costly. They said it would be cheaper to buy another camera. They said there was a recall on faulty CCD's, by Fuji. So, I called them because I never got a recall notice. Fuji claims there was no such recall. I really love this camera and miss using it. What should I do? Do you know where I can send this for quick and reasonably priced repair?
Hi I am Vortash .. Fuji are notorius for their call backs they annonce them in two or three major cities or a particular country then expcect everyone to know about it .. they have followed the laws on recall but only as much as they have to and they will not admit it ever .. So to your camera I am afraid you are in the dark area of neverland with this one .. most companies have a fee just for opening up a camera as it takes so long to get to the offending parts and that is before any work is done then the cost of parts then the labour . Unfortunatley again it is not a job most people will tackle let alone accomplish as special tools and equipment are needed .
I think it depends on how much you like the camera or if a new camera is not the best option considering that the cost of replacementwill probably be the same as repair or as close to it as Dam it is to swearing ?. you advice was probably correct .. If you liked that particular one so much why not look for a cheap seconhand one off Amazon or Ebay.. Hope this is of help to you regards Vortash
