Fuji S5000 Digital Camera--White EVF/LCD Screen

Hello, I have a Fuji S5000 Digital Camera that has never caused me any problems. I was using both the movie and photo functions this afternoon when, all of a sudden, the EVF/LCD screen turned white. I have removed the batteries, turned the camera on and off and have reviewed the troubleshooting information in my manual. At this point, when the camera is turned on, all I see is a white screen. If I try to take a photo, the camera will take a picure, but when I go into playback mode, I see the same white screen only. Pictures I took before this issue started have been correctly saved on the xD Card and can be reviewed properly. Do any of you have a suggestion as to what the cause of this may be and how I might be able to fix it? Thank you very much!

    I have exactly the same problem with my S5700 Fuji model and reading on here, this seems to be quite a common problem, I'm still waiting for a solution though. Such a shame because apart from this it was quite a good camera.

    I have the exact same problem with my camera. I have never had any problems with it till now, and have owned it for 5 years troublefree. Such a shame!

    My son's and my own 5000S CCD screens turned white within 1 months of each other; mine just last week. They were both about 3 years old. We pitched them even though they were just the greatest little cameras while they lasted. I believe S5000's are known to have this problem. Good luck with yours.

I have a FujiFilm S5000 and since 2 weeks the sensor seems not to be able to adjust when trying to take a picture in sunny condition. The screen shows white and pink colour with horizontal lines. I turn...


Actually it's not the sensor it's the LCD screen. I would say in the last two weeks the camera didn't change but the environment it is being used in has and is causing the camera to overheat.

Keeping the camera within these perimeters should solve your problem.

Have a fuji finepix S5600, but my lcd remains black even the camera is on! i can see the pictures i already made at the lCD. But LCD is not working if i want to make new pictures??


Hello, I think I know what the problem is..we'll see. On the back of the s5600 there is a button marked EVF and LCD(EVF on top LCD underneath) try clicking this button to see if your LCD screen becomes available, only one of these can be used at a time and the default for playback is the LCD screen. However if you have set it to EVF it will revert back to this format when you leave playback and try take new footage. I hope this helps and it is nothing more complicated. I have some problems myself and know how it feels. Alan

No picture on lcd in picture taking mode


Have you switched view to the EVF by mistake? Other than that it sounds like the CCD has failed and needs to be replaced.

Snowy lcd screen and the eye view is also snowy


Test the camera by taking a picture and saving to the memory card. Then download it from the card to the computer and view it. If it is clear, the problem is in the playback system or the LCD.

My s5000 screen is all white in record mode. It breifly had a picture then when I pushed the shutter it went white again????


Does the EVF work? The small view finder above the LCD screen. You can switch to it using the EVF/LCD button on the right side above the main display. If it is okay then you'll likely need a replacement LCD.

I have new batteries in my S5000 but do not get an image on lcd


On the back there should be a small button above and to the right of the LCD screen that says EVF/LCD. You might try pressing it to change it, this is provided you can see through the viewfinder already.

Only get a white screen when i turn on camera.


I would contact Fuji as S5000 have been known to have the problems with the CCD sensor going out which causes the screen to go white. Fuji's number is:

(800) 800-3854 and select option 1 M-F 9:00AM-8:00PM EST
Sat-Sun 10:00AM-6:00PM

Above the screen display on the back of the camera are two small buttons. The left one is blue and the right one is marked EVF/LCD.

Push the right side button to change from the viewfinder to the screen.
