Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Green & Purple blurry images

I have not dropped the camera at all, taken good care of it. It worked fine yesterday, and now when you look through the viewer or on the LCD screen all you see are blurry green and purple streaks, when you take a picture it just shows a photo of the colored streaks. Whats the deal? Was this my fault? Not my camera, Step-Dads, I don't want him to strangle me! LOL!

Re: Green & Purple blurry images

Further to my logging this problem, I logged on to the Fuji tech. support area to ask them about it. To fix it would have been £100, so I have since taken up Fuji's trade-in offer and upgraded to the S5700 for £85. The turn-around time was amazingly fast and from what I've seen so far the S5700 is several steps up from the S5000.

Re: Green & Purple blurry images

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.
Here's a link to some information regarding these problems.

Re: Green & Purple blurry images

As steve5 said the problem is a defective CCD device. The reason the camera will be covered under an extended warranty for this problem is because SONY made the CCD and is covering the repair or replacement. There is nothing else you can do for this, it is not batteries, memory or anything else.

Re: Green & Purple blurry images

Same here - I booted up my Finepix M603 and exactly the same problem as you guys - when taking pictures the viewfinder shows green and purple blurry streaks - when you take a picture the colour is 'nearly' normal but there are streaks running down side. I havent dropped it either and was stored safely in a draw for a few months. Any solutions anybody?

It appears the CCD image sensor is going bad. Both these cameras are specified in Canon's technical notice regarding this issue. If Canon determines that this is the problem (and almost certainly it is), they will repair your cameras at no cost, regardless of warranty status. If you're not in the US, contact your regional Canon service facility.
