Above the screen display on the back of the camera are two small buttons. The left one is blue and the right one is marked EVF/LCD.

Push the right side button to change from the viewfinder to the screen.

You can download the manual here:

FUJIFILM FINEPIX S5000.No image on viewfinder or LCD.

I think there is a small button on the back of the camera near the bottom that turns the viewfinder off and on I think. It should be in the manual.
It might have gotten bumped while in the bag.

I have new batteries in my S5000 but do not get an image on lcd

On the back there should be a small button above and to the right of the LCD screen that says EVF/LCD. You might try pressing it to change it, this is provided you can see through the viewfinder already.

Black-n-purple viewing screen my fuji s700 (s7000) camera

Sounds like a bad LCD as I had a similar experience with a different brand. The part itself is probably not very cheap... but if you have $120 you could get the same camera, referbished.

Fuji S5700 Replacement LCD

I just purchased a replacement LCD screen off of Ebay from a seller called D & H Camera in Chicago, IL. The cost was $49.99 (Buy it now) with a $15 shipping fee. It came very quickly and I am going to attempt to install it myself although the seller offered to do it free of charge if you would rather send it to him. The local camera shop from where I purchased the camera said it would cost as much as the camera did to replace it so this is a good deal in my opinion. Good luck.
