Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera
I took my camera out the other day and noticed a green line running through the view finder. Took some pictures and when I down loaded them, the line was on them as well. What is happening? Is it worth fixing or do I just get a new one?
Randolou and Linchiek, sorry to say its most likely the CCD or associated circuitry, may be worth checking with fuji if its one of a faulty batch of sensors that were used a year or two back in many cameras, Some manufactures offered free repairs even out of warranty on cameras with these devices fitted.
may be worth un-clipping and re clipping the CCD's ribbon cable (if it has one in this model), though they are often not easy to get to.
as with any problem on a digital camera, a full reset and remove all batteries (main and backup) for a few hours is always worth a try
It depends on if the pictures come out ok when you download them.
If they do, its the screen or associated circuitry. check display ribbon, maybe buy a faulty one from ebay and swap out the screen.
if its on the pictures you take then as with the above its an electronic problem deep within.
Also try a reset as above..
Best of luck all
