Question about Fuji FinePix F700 Digital Camera

2 Answers

White surround appearing on pictures - not sure how to remove.

I seem to have the camera up to place a curved white surround on still pictures (see attached example). It only occurs in optical regions (i.e. not when digital zoom is invoked) and on all settings Auto,P,S,A,M. It does not occur on videos.
I have read the Finepix F700 manual cover to cover and cannot see a reference to this... can anyone help?

Re: White surround appearing on pictures - not sure how...

Unfortunately as of 23rd Sept 2008 the link you posted no longer works. I am in UK and it looks like Fuji copped out!
My F700 suddenly started putting a white / pinkish halo around images and I have hardly used it since I got it. I believe I have taken less than 100 photo's in total as it's not my main camera , just kept as a spare. Looks like it will end up on Ebay as fodder for the broken camera people.

Shame that.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Applicable cameras include:
F303, F410, and F700

Hi, Recently my digital camera are taken complete white pictures in the morning with clear sky and sun appear now after a month I can take color pictures but with white strips pictures...

The problem you mention does not seem to be in the pictures.
No, probably not firmware, that depends what kind of camera as well. You did not tell the camera model, unless it is the Canon A410. If that is the case, download the firmware which is the newest, if available, and install according to instructions.
Also you can try to reset all menus to default. You may also try to do this: Remove all batteries including (if it has) a data battery for 24 hours. Then install all batteries, and re-test the camera.

White appears pink

I contacted Praktica Support and it seems that the camera is faulty and needs to be replaced. It was the white balance faulty.

Too bright picture with white lines in them

I suggest you to write a letter to Canon and to contact your local service dealer. After some struggling, they accepted the warranty claim and repaired my camera free of charge. The problem appeared when the camera was 23 months old.

White Screen

  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

(page 100 of the manual)

I have some exposure problems (I think) with Kodak EasyShare DX4330

There should be an option in your menu to do whats called a white balance. Whenever there is an significant change in lighting, it is usually benifital to do this so that the camera knows what color white is. If you need help with the white balance, your manual should tell you what you need to know.
