    I've had my S7000 for a couple of years now and it has worked perfectly until a couple of weeks ago when it randomly had black, purplish and white smears on the display screen. It cleared up for a few days and now it that way all the time... I took it to a camera shop and they said that the image stabilizer is out, but I didn't think it had one...any recommendations?

    In camera mode, picture starts disintegrating in multiple color line. Sometimes replacing batteries fix the issue for a couple of minutes only.

    My camera is showing these very same lines moving the image does show up but its scrambled and completly useless. Tha camera has had a life of total comfort as I am obsessive about making sure that its in its case at all times or around my neck.

    Can someone help me on this issue.

    I have had my Fuji S7000 since Nove 2003. It has been the most excellent camera, I have take thousands of pics...all of a sudden the digital processor quit interpreting the image..the palyback is good, so there is nothing to do with battery...just the through the lens imaging. Does anyone have a solution?

    Same! Would go into horizontal purple & black lines turn off & on then would be OK. Now purple & black lines all the time. Looks like an old TV with a horizontal hold problem.

This is a chip problem... My FIRST S7000, had this problem, and I had it replaced by Fuji {out of warranty}, now today, the SECOND S7000 is doing the exact same thing!

Contact Fuji at their New Jersey offices for info on how to get your camera repaired.

I have a FujiFilm S5000 and since 2 weeks the sensor seems not to be able to adjust when trying to take a picture in sunny condition. The screen shows white and pink colour with horizontal lines. I turn...

Actually it's not the sensor it's the LCD screen. I would say in the last two weeks the camera didn't change but the environment it is being used in has and is causing the camera to overheat.

Keeping the camera within these perimeters should solve your problem.

I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

Finxpix s5000 display has black/purple/pink lines

There was a recall (free repair) for the Finepix S5000 from Fuji.
It affected the ccd-sensor of many cameras.
It does depend on the serial number of your camera.
Email them and give them your camera details.
You might get it repaired.
They do not sell any ! spares .

Try them
