Question about Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera

Fuji S2 problem

Recently, my s-2 has been showing problems. While shooting, the image finder goes dark. I can still see thru the viewfinder but it's very dark and it seems to come and go. I changed batteries but didn't seem to matter. Now after each exposure an Errr blinks on top where the normal information shows on the top screen. (shutter speed, f/stop). I have to physically shut off camera and turn back on to clear in order to procede capturing images. Any suggestions? Thank you. Desperate.

Err after a shot usually means bad AAA batteries. Change to alcaline or NiMH rechargable.

Adjust the viewfinder diopter to match your eye. Remove the rubber eyecup by grasping both sides and sliding it up. Turn the little knob to the left of the viewfinder until the focus points or center metering circle appear sharp. Replace the eyecup.

Sounds like your image stabilizer got damaged by the fall. You'll have to get your camera serviced by an authorized Nikon service center.

I have a fugi fine pix, when using it in bright sun light i cant see anything

You could be experiencing one of two issues:
1) You are having a difficulty viewing the image on the back of the camera (not the view finder). This is common on cameras out in the sun, try cupping your spare hand over the screen to cast a shadow on the screen.
2) You cannot view anything in the view finder. Since the view finder has its own tiny LCD display inside of it, it is displaying what image the camera will take if you press the shutter release. I would double check to see if the camera is set correctly for shooting in bright sunlight (check your owners manual, or set the camera to Automatic), and if there is a difference between what you're seeing in the viewfinder, and what images the camera is taking, consider calling Fuji, as it sounds like a hardware issue.

I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully...

Check the mirror. The image you see in the viewfinder comes through the lens, and is reflected by the mirror. If it's dirty, it will affect the image you see. When you take the picture, the mirror lifts up, the viewfinder image is interrupted, and the light from the lens goes to the image sensor. So...if the mirror is dirty, the picture will be fine but the viewfinder image will be dark or out of focus.

No Image to Shoot

There is a temporary fix that works sometimes but eventually it will stop working alltogether. If canon can't help, might try this:

Weird colors in viewfinder

Sounds to me like a CCD problem, which is a bad thing. CCD faults were quite common in the early S2's. It would be worth contacting Fuji about.

can you insert a few images into the thread to have a look at. Need more than one to check consistency of problem.

View finder focus

Is there a little black wheel or anything beside the optical viewfinder that turns? If there is, turn it until the image comes into focus.

Dark Images

Recently this happened to me just as I was walking in a church to shoot a wedding (major bummer). I had to rush and get my film backup for this. Anyway, this problem has ocurred with several examples of the S2 pro including mine, one other than mine that I know personally. The problem is the sensor. I quickly shipped to Fuji and they fixed the problem. I just got my camera back and so far it is working fine. Time will tell. I had to pay for the shipping only and turnaround was quick (1 week). By the way the camera was already out of warranty, but they gave a 3 month warranty after the repair.

"Stuck" Pixel

It could be the dust on the sensor. Read the manual and try to clean the sensor to see what happens
