Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Open Question

One day the camera was working great and my daughter borrowed it to go to Vegas. The eye screen is dark and the lcd screen looks like smeared purple lines of pics. I cant get any image to come through as they all look like a purple haze and the shutter doesnt work. Thanks, Bill

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: distorted purple image when camera is switched on

That is weird, maybe try to reset it by taking the batteries out and then putting them back in and starting it from scratch. Electronic problems....yikes.

SOURCE: Water damage

try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

The camera took great pictures then all of a sudden the screen appears as a purple haze -- and the pictures come out as just a purple blurry haze. Adjusting brightness doesn't work. Yet, the shutt


If the LCD displays correctly on previous photos then the problem is more than likely a CCD or associated ribbon connector failure due to moisture/condensation or age/misuse. Good luck with finding a replacement part!

Sony cybershot t300 lcd screen remains dark when switched on


Hi,
Your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. If the problem is due to your dropping the camera, you might be out of luck.
If you have not dropped your camera and still facing this problem, then contact service people to replace the CCD imager in your camera .

Hope this helps .

How do you apply eyeshadow to dark brown eyes?


Ok, you have dark brown eyes? So do I! Many women do, its the most dominant eye color in the world. Ok so, how do you make them look big and beautiful? You must buy great makeup! Ok so one way to make them pop is to buy different eyeshadow colors than your eye is. So for you I would recommend a pink with gold, a blue with sliver, a light purple, a peachy color, something sparkly, but lighter colored. Don't use dark eyeshadow on dark eyes! Also, you must buy a good mascara. I tend to use dark mascara and lighter eyeshadow. It really does make your eyes big and georgous! Don't use eyeliner on dark eyes unless its on the top! It makes your eyes look smaller! Proven fact that when you have dark eyes, and you put eyeliner on the bottom, it makes them look small, and beaty. I hope this answer helped you out. Enjoy :]

Dark and blurry


It will clear instantly with a fresh battery.

The viewfinder screen has an LCD overlay and even when the camera is switched off the screen uses a small amount of power. When the batteries are flat the screen is unpowered, the crystals in the LCD align randomly to both darken and blur the viewfinder image.

Purple lcd display


Hello tonyj111, If your old pictures look fine on the display, then the problem is related to the ccd sensor itself. The purple color is displayed because of a problem in the signal transmision from the ccd sensor to the camera's main processor. This is done using 3 channels one for each primary color (RGB red green blue). If the connector to the sensor is broken, or got out of place (loose) because some mechanic shock or symilar, the data processing woun't come out right. It is purple because your camera's processor mess up blue and red signals therefore resulting same purple instead of blue or red colours. In order to fix this you will need to either send the camera to a service center to have those connections checked (if your camera is still in warranty you will want to do this) or ask me for further instructions if you wish to try to dissasemble the camera yourself. In either way the problem is fixable and in most probabilities a cheap fix will work. Good luck
