Yes, there was a "recall".
Although the wording "recall" is not correct; they offered a free ccd replacement for the affected cameras.
The customer had to initiate the process.
Please do a bit of research on Google and you will find it.
Also have a look at www.s5000.net

Unfortunately you received the "Standard Answer" from Fuji.

Your CCD sensor has failed. Common digital problem that uses Sony sourced CCD chips. Proffesional factory replacement of CCD is only fix or buy another physicaly damaged unit and swap CCD boards. Not hard but intricate and time consuming.

Send it to the Fujifilm camera repair center. The S5000 has a known issue with bad CCD sensors... Unless you want to do it yourself.

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

This is a CCD sensor problem ( see enclosed image ) ; has to be replaced. Contact Fuji agent in your area because this problem on this model is repaired under warranty ( the manufacturer has installed a faulty sensor when the camera was manufactured ).e159388.jpg

CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced by Fuji agent free of charge because properly manufactured CCD sensor should last 15 years at least. Otherwise pay for labor to have new CCD block put in ( 1 hour ) and insist on the agent covering the cost of the part.
