Question about Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital...

The camera was dropped from about 2 feet. 1/3 of the screen still works - the remainder is white. It still displays the settings, what is being seen and still takes pictures. It shows what has been taken through the display, and downloads pictures as before. As stated earlier it does work perfectly bar 2/3 of the screen. Thoughts?

That doesn't sound so bad, even though it could be not the screen but the drivers which are causing the fault. I would pay $25 for your camera plus shipping and eventually customs (needs to arrive in Germany).

Hello, I have fuji finepix F50fd camera. It suddenly takes blurred pictures. The lens is clean and there are no messages on the screen. Can't remeber dropping it or damaging it in any way. Regards, Sofia


Welcome to FixYa.

There are three reasons why do you get a blurred images.

1. The camera lens is dirty
- clean the lens with soft and dry cloth
2. AF frame (lit red) and !AF appeared when taking pictures.
- check the focus on the subject and take pictures
3. A small camera icon appeared when taking pictures
- It may cause camera shae. Hold the camera steadily.Use flash photography. A tripod may be recommended, depending on the scene and mode.

Feel free to send us comments or suggestions if this solution was helpful.

Fuji F50fd suddenly has only a white screen when turned on. No display at all. It still takes photos, however you cannot see them or see if you are zooming or see any menus, etc. Camera was in a case in...


Either the screen ribbon has moved in it's socket or it has split. Only way to find out is to open the camera. A good light source and a magnifier will show any breaks in the ribbon, could also try a trick with a felt tipped pen to see if the ribbon is split. But before that make sure it's seated correctly

Fuji finepix f50 camera was dropped with lense out, and now wont return. it also says focus error on screen. I have the same problem and Fuji want £88.00 to repair it - you can buy a new camera for...


Unfortunately dropping this model, and the f40, 45, 47 fd models, is suicidal for the camera. The lens has an inner slide ring which other models do not have and this ring has three lugs to keep the lens from spinning when powered up and used. Unfortunately these lugs are also clips which hold the focus lens inplace. These are tiny. hard to repair

FinePix A500 Fuji camera "focus error"


Check out this link: www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/fuji-finepix-z1_question.html?qid=4289
After the basics, try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji Finepix A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

Finepix f50fd camera working bar cracked screen.


Thank you for your reply. Since using the F50fd doesn't make any sense without the display screen, I need to hope that the problem your camera has really concerns the display screen and not any other electronic components (e.g. display drivers). Also, I need to hope that my working screen will be compatible to your camera - something Fuji easily could have tried to impede.

Why is your screen actually cracked? What happened?

Fuji finepix 50fd camera has a cracked screen. Camera still works. 1/3 of the screen still works. Can I fit a new sceen? where do I get one from?


This isn't something I would attempt myself (and I'm pretty good with a soldering gun). Camera manufacturers have a policy of not selling parts, unless they are performing the install (accessories yes, parts no), because most attempts to install them result in a broken part, an even more damaged camera, and a customer service issue. Parts are only sold to authorized repair companies, where the installation will be carried out by a trained professional. Besides, isn't the liquid inside an LCD pretty toxic?
