Takes pictures but they are very distorded and pink

The camera has all workable functions in taking the picture, but viewing picture on screen is pink and distorted and the picture comes out that way. Could it need a new ccd unit? It worked fine one day they not the next.

Hello Cathy, The "AF" means auto focus, The pink screen and the lines are a camera fault, you are going to need the camera checked to see what the internal problem is, it is not something that you are doing wrong, it is the camera.

If it's pink/purple and "streaky", you have a bad CCD sensor. The only fix is replacement of the sensor. This is the main image capturing sensor in the camera. The situation is well documented on the web. It's usually the end of the camera, unless it's under warranty (or just a little past). Approaching Fuji's repair department can sometimes yield a sympathetic rep who'll have it fixed at no charge to you. If you are on the hook for the repair, expect to drop about $100 US.

Cant take the picture


Probably the ccd imaging unit has died, or the cable that opens the iris has failed, either way this is not a user repair
