A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help. By the way, recommend trying the pencil tapping method described in this article for a stuck "open" shutter.

Fuzzy Images


There is insufficient light indoors, so the camera is selecting a slow shutter speed, which is causing camera shake, hence the 'fuzziness'.

I have take photos outdoors and theyre too dark to see.


There is a firmware upgrade to fix the brightness of the captured images when “EVF/LCD mode” is set to “60fps” is darker than that set to “30f/s”.

Colour tone issues with Fujifilm Finepix S5700


It sounds like the sepia tone is most likely caused by the tungsten lights in a regular room. Without flash, the only source of illumination indoors is artificial light (unless window light is dominant). There is a way to color balance the camera to approximate sunlight through the manual settings. Look in the menus for "white balance". You'll need to take the camera off of the fully automatic settings first. Move the cursor up or down while looking at the image and you will see the color shift. when you find a color balance you like for that particular room's lighting conditions, hit the OK to lock it in the activated position. Remember to go back to "auto" white balance for most shooting, especially outdoors, or everything will take on a wierd color cast.
