My samsung ST45 has started taking purple pictures any ideas please.


Sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps

I have no picture coming through on the screen or viewfinder, just hazy purple with jumpy lines. Fujifilm model#s5200. Pictures on card i can view. Any ideas? Rob from Ontario


That is strange, maybe taking the batteries out and putting them back in could reset the camera to normal. Electronic problems are real tough.

Re: turning on s700


How are your pictures coming out? If the photos you take after seeing these lines come out good, then it could be the LCD only. However, if you are unable to shoot, or the photo files are damaged, there may be a problem internally. You should contact Fuji to see if they have heard of this problem, and if not, contact local camera shops to see if they can take a look at it. Also, digital cameras and card will only last so long - they will wear out much sooner than their film counterparts did.

Purple Screen


If it is only 2 months old,then you still have warranty.
A purple lcd, viewfinder and photo is a 100% CCD failure.
If out of warranty, not worth the repair.
