    Our work camera had the exact same image as this email and images described. It worked fine a week ago. The camera did not suffer any physical damage as it was stationary in a protective case.

    I have 2 Fuji S20's, one has the distorted screen and the other has purple & blue images. they both went out the same time. Is there a recall on these modles? I have heard that many s20s are failing now.

    I have exactly same problem, any solution yet?

  • donintx Jul 16, 2008

    I have two Fuji S20 pro cameras that have the purple and blue scrambled screen. Both cameras failed almost at the same time with no reason. Both cameras have been well taken care of and never droped. Fuji says send them in, I know it will cost to repair these cameras and I refuse to pay them a dime more when this is clearly a defect. When my S9000 fails I'm done with Fuji!

  • JENN471 Aug 05, 2008

    I bought my camera 3 years ago and like many others on this site I hardley used my camera and NEVER dropped my camera. Kits camera told me yesterday that I could pay $40.00 + to ship it to fuji and then 3-400 $$$$!!!!!! Thats a new camera! Im sure a 3-400$ camera would last a lot longer than this. Kits also said that Fuji no longer has the technology to fix these cameras! A 3 year old camera, $800.00 and this camera is still being sold online! ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    Same thing with my S20. We should all pressure Fuji for a free fix on this as Canon had done on their A series cameras. Based on this and the experience I had on my Fuji S9000, I fortunately switch to Canon. (who stands behind their products)

    My S20 pro has the same problem.  It has had very little use.  images are scramble magenta, purple and green.  Fuji should do something with such an obvious issue.

  • richard711 Nov 12, 2008

    The CCD on my S20Pro has also failed. Fuji are asking for £79.99 to repair it!

A little research shows me that Fuji has undergone an extensive repair recall for several Fuji models because of failed CCDs. My S20 Pro just lost it's ccd as well. For some reason it looks like the S20 was not covered in the free repair offer by Fuji. Has anyone else had a CCD problem with their S20

The recall is on a couple of A models and an F model, apparently the CCD's on these models are made by Sony.

I need to have a Fuji S20 Pro, and a Kodak P880 cleaned, adjusted and overall adjust to the Factory Specs.

The best way to do this is to fine a kodak certified service centre close to you for the P880 and a Fuji certified service centre close to you for the S20 Pro. But first ask them what they will charge you, because lager is expensive and it could cost almost as much as a new camera.

We have 14 S20 cameras that have been serving us well for a couple of years. However, we've recently had 8 of the cameras that will no longer read in our computers. After a process of elimination it looks...

Have you tried a different firewire cable? Sounds like you've tried different computers. I'm not sure what the cost would be but you could contact Fuji camera repair at 800-659-3854 and get an estimate.

Hello. my fuji s20 pro. powers up.lense moves out lcd shows menus. so does veiwfinder,the shutter button does nothing when pressed and i get black screen. also when you select record it shuts down....


The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Where can i get a ccd replacement from?

CCDs are not readily available in the market outside. You will have to take the camera to a Fuji service center. Please write back if you need assistance locating your nearest service center.

Fuji s20 pro failed ccd, where can i get a replacement ccd from? how much would it cost regards steve Hi, I think I'm having the same issue as well. Just getting the snowstorm on the screen. Still takes...

I had the same problem - called Fuji in UK, they denied all responsibility. Had a rethink, checked on the web, and then called them back with the following -
Fuji USA and Canada both fix this problem under warranty
S2 pro and S700 both on their recall list for failed CCD's and the S20 pro uses the same CCD so why won't they fix it?
Lots of apologies and they fixed it for free!

I have four S20's great cameras when they are working. Three don't. All have the same problem blurred image then eventually no image. I have posted one today for repairs at a cost of £99.99 fuji include a new 12 months warranty on the entire camera.
Solution..send it to fuji for repair. Or bin it & change manufacturers for your next camera. Personally I love the S20 especially when useing Raw.

All images are vignetted

Recently my Fuji S20 pro pictures started to look like purple and green blurred water colour images. Sometimes there is horizontal lines in the pics. like when your printer stars to get low on toner. I called customer service. They said to send it in. My cost. They will send an estimate if I want it fixed i pay. If I do not and want it back they will charge me $25 to get it back. Or they will keep it and recycle it. How kind of them!!!
