Question about Fuji FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera
Since a few days, my pictures are very heavily distorted. The colors look purple and it is almost impossible to see what has been photographed. The problem is already visible on the LCD screen.

SOURCE: picture is very distorted
First of all, if you're still under warranty no use trying solutions that might be only temporary, go complain. Since you have normality relapses, it sounds like its something a reset could fix. Follow the instructions in your manual on how to perform a full reset, in case you no longer have the manual i'll attach that part of it to my post(just from a slightly different camera, if you have a digital manual for the 402 please post it). Now, if that doesn't work, i would suggest you try resetting the good old way - take out all batteries, disconnect all cables, and make sure the camera just lies there taking it easy for a few days, then try again. No go? it might be a problem with the memory card, try replacing. If you don't have one available try going to a repair shop/retailer and ask for one of their cards just to test it as a last resort before sending it for repair. Good luck

Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.

CCD is bad, needs replacement. TEst to see if you can see recorded pictures. If not, then professional repair is needed.

This is the classic symptom of a failed CCD sensor. The only fix is to have the sensor replaced, but as the camera is around five years old now any repairs will not be cost effective.
Sorry, but your camera has reached the end of it's useful lifespan: five years is pretty good going for any digital camera, they simply do not last anywhere near as long as the film cameras they replaced.
Your only real choice is to buy a new replacement, but if all you need is a similar technical specification to your current model then there are plenty of cameras for less than £100 which will do at least as good a job as your present camera. Just don't expect a sub £100 camera to last anywhere near five years though.
Sorry I can't be more positive, but I hope that I've still helped you.
