    I took am now getting white lines across every photo and they download the same way. I am unable to take any photos that come out without the white horizontal lines across them. Please help me fix this problem.

    I am most surprised that highly technical people are unable to read clear and repeated symptoms of a problem manifested by many of those who own the Fuji Finepix F470. It seems more likely that the Fuji technicians are unwilling to admit to a fault of poor manufacture. This is the third camera that I had to discard, F401, F610 and now F470. After buying 4 Fuji cameras, including a professional camera, I stopped buying them and I replaced the F470 by a Canon.

I have horizontal lines across the screen of my fujifilm f470 camera. what would be the cause of this please


It's a faulty ccd. There are several comments on this website regarding this problem. If it's under warrantee you can return it but otherwise you either have to live with it until the whole thing dies (tapping it might help occasionally) or repair will cost around $100.

The pictures turn out either as an all white screen or with lines running horizontally accross the image


This is due to the shutter not completely closing over the lens or not firing at all. The live view on the screen looks perfectly all right because the sensor is fine. The video function should work fine as this does not use the shutter, indicating the fault lies with the shutter mechanism or more commonly the shutter leafs are stuck because of moisture residue building up.

Try the video function.
If this works fine then it is most probably the shutter sticking.
To confirm the shutter is sticking turn the camera on, put the zoom to full optical and turn it to face you so you can see into the lens. Watch the inner part of the lens when you take a picture. You should see the shutter fire across the lens. Lines on pictures or over exposed pictures are caused by gaps in the shutter or the shutter failing to fire altogether.
Moisture residue on the shutter leafs is the common cause for this problem.
Some people on here have their own views about what causes lines on photo's. Someone even said digital cameras do not have a shutter and problems were due to software issues....
I have dealt with 100's of different models, including Fuji's E900 and always have found moisture residue to be the cause.

My F470 Fuji Fine Pix takes stripey pictures but when it is in movie mode it is fine


Your cameras shutter is sticking. lines on photo's or over exposed photo's are due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens.
Video is fine because it does not use the shutter.

The shutter will require cleaning.

Horizontal White Lines in Pictures


I don't think [and the museum will certainly say] This has anything to do with the X-ray/storage whilst in the museums hands. It could be a processing error or a memory card error. Try formatting the card in the camera and taking a new batch of images Try another card. This will estasblish card or camera. If card - buy another card If camera -checxk on the price of a repair but I suspect it will mean when you see the price Buy another camera
