Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cameras Hello, i was just looking for some advise, im going over seas in november and really need my camera back and working. I own a Fuji S5000, mayb for like 2 years now? Just recently its gone all weird, when i turn the camera on, the screen can go all pink and green (all lines through the screen) i guess sort of like when a tv has no aerial but its black and white on a tv? I went in to kodak (without the camera) as i was strolling through the shops and just thought i would ask and they said its either 1. the screen is cracked / & leaked (but it isnt because every now and then i can see the real picuter im trying to take.) or 2. it is the computer chip inside the camera? does number 2 sound right for my problem to you? (just by going on the info i have told you?) If it is the computer chip inside, how much do you charge to fix this, (if you are able to?)? Or is it just better off me getting a new camera as the problem will keep happening to me? or is it basically worth getting a new camera? (what cameras are really good cameras, i want one to take overseas if i am unable to fix this one cheaply, that will till take really good pictures.) Thanks so much for your time, i really appreciate it! Brooke

You are closer with number 2. It is likely that your camera has a faulty CCD. To replace it would be well over 100$, A good camera, (I have one). Nothing wrong with the Fuji line of small digitals. I would recommend staying with them. They make cameras for other well known manufacturers too.

My fuji s5100 will only go into playback mode not into camera mode,I can not take pictures


Just an idea, when mine messes up I remove the batteries for a minute and then put them back in. Of course you have to reset the clock and maybe some of your settings but it might return to the defaults.
Hope it works.

Fuji Finepix S5000 ccd sensor


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.

S5000


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.

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

Fuji S5000 mode switch?


That looks very much like the slector switch has slipped inside and is out of position.
That can be fixed if the actual and very tiny switchover pins are not broken.
I have repaired one switch actually with parts from a S3000.
Works ok but extremely fiddely.
Otherwise it is a replacement of the small switchover board, which sits on top of the battery compartment.
Problem being: Fuji will not sell parts to us.
Good luck

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
