S5000 Digital Camera

My Fuji S5000 camera is working ok but the LCD is not working.
It went off and on a couple of times and now it does not go at all.
I have dismantled the camera and the flexi cable seems ok.
I have heard that the flexi cable will break in tme. The camera is about two years old.It has not had a lot of use. As soon I turn on the camera the Light on the left hand side glows red and stays on untill the camera is turned off. If you think it is the LCD can you tell me please where I might purchase one from.

Yes, that appears to be the LCD.
You will need to buy a S5000 with a different fault and then change it.
If I cannot find another ccd-sensor, then I might have one for sale.

good luck germander

Memory Card and the S5000


hi,

Fuji S5000 doesn't have an internal battery...it's a known motherboard/internal memory chip failure. Basically, they put a chip in there that will only last a couple years and then you either have to replace it (for a couple hundred bucks) or deal with correcting the settings everytime you change batteries (which will be more often now that some battery power is now dedicated to holding that internal memory settings). FujiFilm doesn't seem interested in correcting the issue via customer service either, very much a bummer!!

your S5000 contains a battery (lithium 'button' cell, I believe) which,
ordinarily, would enable the camera to store all the user settings. It
sounds as though yours (or its recharging circuitry, which is less likely)
has died. A year is rather a short life for these batteries in these cameras
but by no means unheard-of, unfortunately.
I don't know how easy it is to change the battery yourself on the S5000. If
you phone your nearest Fuji service centre and tell them how disappointed
you are (but otherwise very happy with their product... ;-) ) you may find
that they will do the job free - Fuji UK can be very good like this at
times.
You might find advice on changing the battery yourself on the forums of
various digital camera sites, such as www.DPReview.com - the Fuji forum
there is at
http://forums.dpreview.com/for ums/forum.asp?forum=1012
Hope this helps, and good luck with your camera.

Fuji S5000 magenta, green and white swirls on view finder


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.

Fuji s5000. I've owned over 7 years with thousands of photos taken . I love this camera....about a month ago the occasional purple pix started. the lines went away after 45 seconds, then this...


Don't you hate it when this happens? It also sounds as if you already know the LCD, sensor or the shutter have worn out and the cost of repair is no longer economically practical. I'm using a Fuji S100fs for an all a round camera which catches all sorts of uses including time laps. One day I'll be in the same situation you are right now.

Fuji produces wonderful fixed lens cameras loaded with features more then I want or would use but I'd buy another in a heart beat when my S100fs does hit the bricks.

I think also that you answered your own question "my only option" and for that I can only say I'm sorry for your lose.

Best of luck in your search for a "new" friend

My s5000 screen is all white in record mode. It breifly had a picture then when I pushed the shutter it went white again????


Does the EVF work? The small view finder above the LCD screen. You can switch to it using the EVF/LCD button on the right side above the main display. If it is okay then you'll likely need a replacement LCD.

Finxpix s5000 display has black/purple/pink lines


There was a recall (free repair) for the Finepix S5000 from Fuji.
It affected the ccd-sensor of many cameras.
It does depend on the serial number of your camera.
Email them and give them your camera details.
You might get it repaired.
They do not sell any ! spares .

Try them

Fuji FinePix S5000


This appears to be loose connector to the motherboatd from the screen.
Try gentle squeezing of the casing near the bottom of the body
This may do the trick- otheriwise it is a workshop job and frankly not worth the cost - the money would be better spent on a more uptodate camera.
