    My camera developed the same fault. All functions perfect except that suddenly the viewfinder goes all colours and stripes – like TVs used to when they got interference. Then when you take the actual photo, these stripes and colours come out on the picture!! Note: Someone is currently advertising a S20 on e-bay with this same problem,

    I had the same problem with my S20. I had interference the viewfinder went all colours and stripes mostly purple and greens and this came out on the pictures. Some one on e-bay is currently selling a S20 camera with the same problem. I sent mine back to fugi service but they wanted a £100 to fix it so I bought a Panasonic but it's not as good in many ways. Let me know if there was a product recall for this problem.

    Same problem since 23 august 08 (my 60th anniversary) where I was unable to make my own pictures on my beautiful party!

    I Formatted my XD card and now I am looking for solutions on internet.

    Every function works, only the photos appear as plain purple or a bundle with stripes. Formatting the XD card didn't help. I hope Fuji will take their responsibility if this is a serious defect of this camera. And it seems to be so. I am very, very disappointed, especially while I could not make photos on my anniversary. I think it is a shame when Fuji asks 100 UK Pounds / 150 euros to change the CCD function.

    Identical problem. The camara worked great and was not dropped. One day I went to use it and it had these purple horizontal lines across the LCD screen and also when the image was downloaded.

My Fujifilm S20 Pro has developed an issue with the viewfinder and the LCD screen. The view finder is completely black and the screen has a large green "glob" in the middle. It will not hold the picture for more than a second. I took it to the camera store and they said that the aperture sensor is bad and the repair will be aprox. $250-$350 or to buy a new one. Please help! Thankyou.

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.

Fuji s 20 pro

prior to this current problem did the pictures have a hazy contrast to them? if so then yes the apeture is faulty. if the cost of the camera does not exceed the the repairs then you should purchase a new one. this is the best option because i'm sure if you send it straight to fuji it will cost more than 350 bucks guarenteed. however you might save alot by just taking it to a local shop and have them repair it and you most certainly get it back alot quicker as well.........please rate this thanks

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)

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!

Fuji s20 pro failed ccd, where can i get a replacement ccd from? how much would it cost regards steve

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

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!!!
