Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera
This is an unfortunate problem with batches of the image sensors. Small amounts of moisture seeps into the inside of the chip and ruins them. The cause is well known to the manufacturers of the many cameras affected. It usually takes the camera well beyond the warranty period, although contacting their local customer service department may result in a "good-will" repair at no charge. Repair is expensive if you are paying for it. It wasn't Fuji's fault. The sensor manufacturer overlooked the moisture seal. If you "google" bad image sensors, you should find lots of information and see how widespread the problem became.
