Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Fuji S5000 mode switch?

I have a 2004 Fuji S500 camera that has been working fine.
But, now when I take photographs I am unable to review them on the camera.
I know the photographs are being stored as I can view them via my computer.
Also when the mode switch is set on the setting for preview it will let me take photographs.
Advise welcome

    I have been having the same problem. Happened a few years ago. Couldn't figure out what was wrong with it and have been hesitant to get it repaired, as I had problems with a Sony camera once and it cost more to repair it than to just buy a new camera. I found my Fuji S5000 recently and tried it out - still the same problem. I might have to get around to getting it looked at after all, as it's one of the best cameras I've had.

That looks very much like the slector switch has slipped inside and is out of position.
That can be fixed if the actual and very tiny switchover pins are not broken.
I have repaired one switch actually with parts from a S3000.
Works ok but extremely fiddely.
Otherwise it is a replacement of the small switchover board, which sits on top of the battery compartment.
Problem being: Fuji will not sell parts to us.
Good luck

Join the club of many s5000 users.
Your CCD is faulty.
No DIY repair possible because no spares from Fuji available.
A Fuji repair is not worth it.

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 .
