It's a failed CCD imaging unit.

The only fix is to have it replaced, but your camera is now around six to seven years old and so it's beyond economic repair.

The spares are no longer available as the camera is past it's original design lifespan, if you did find a spare it would need professional fitting and the labour costs would far exceed the camera value.

For less than the repair costs, you could now buy the Fuji S1500 for about £120. It does pretty much all that your current model does and to a far higher standard.

Sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Looking at the screen and through the view finder, all looks green and purple? How can I fix this, I changed a setting somehow


I just tried changing the film type settings on my S5000. (the blue button, standard,chr, b/w) None of those changed the colors to purple and green. It may be that the camera has a failing CCD. It would be a rather expensive repair and not a DIY.

That is weird, maybe try to reset it by taking the batteries out and then putting them back in and starting it from scratch. Electronic problems....yikes.

Hi
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)

In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.
