My fuji s7000 zoom has coloured wavey lines when turned on. It goes back to normal intermitantly but at the moment it is constant Ian


Hi Ian.

If the lines are reproduced in the pictures taken, then the image sensor located behind the lens is starting to fail. The problem will usually get progressively worse until you won't be able to shoot regular pictures anymore.

Call Fuji and ask about repair. You can get a quote from a third party here: Repair.

Regards.

I am guessing here that you are talking about the results in the LCD screen, how do the pictures look when downloaded to the computer.

Camera operates OK but pictures have a purple cast and fine vertical lines. This distortion is also present looking at the screen before picture is taken.


Sorry but these are classic symptoms of a failed ccd imaging chip, and it's effectively irreparable.

Repair costs will exceed what you could buy another brand new one for (£58), although it is a discontinued model. £70 ish would buy an equivalent current model replacement and would still be cheaper than the repair costs. Buying the spare part alone (you probably can't anyway) will typically cost more than buying a replacement camera.

The only way your camera is going to be worth a repair is if it is still under the manufacturer's one year warranty as it won't cost you anything, but the model was discontinued around two years ago so this option is unlikely to apply.


Sorry that the outlook for this is bleak, but hopefully you have found my reply to be of use. If so please rate my answer.

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.
