Check your ISO settings, and make sure they haven't been set to something like 100 or a low setting, and not on automatic. There could be a problem with the shutter speed settings, and check to see if it's on a fixed setting or on auto.
If the problem is anything besides settings, the unit will have to be troubleshot, and that usually requires servicing, and most definitely opening it up. I don't recommend trying to fix a camera like this, since it's a complicated, sophisticated unit, and can incur more damage than good, unless you really know what you're doing.
Recheck your settings, then contact Fuji to see what they think. Here's their website:

If they can't do anything for you, take it in to a local camera repair shop. Get an estimate first, and you'll know what you're up against.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Mitsubishi TV 65 inch rear projection. WS 65809 I went thru the convergence ic chip replacement years ago. Love the TV. My problem now is that the brightness goes from full bright to full dim then...


The old Mitsubishi units had a super capacitor in the logic circuit instead of a backup battery. This capacitor became leaky over time, causing the problem you describe among others. Number one symptom is set has audio and dark or black picture when powered up. As the super cap charges to full voltage, picture comes and goes.

I have a fugi fine pix, when using it in bright sun light i cant see anything


Geofchaam,
You could be experiencing one of two issues:
1) You are having a difficulty viewing the image on the back of the camera (not the view finder). This is common on cameras out in the sun, try cupping your spare hand over the screen to cast a shadow on the screen.
2) You cannot view anything in the view finder. Since the view finder has its own tiny LCD display inside of it, it is displaying what image the camera will take if you press the shutter release. I would double check to see if the camera is set correctly for shooting in bright sunlight (check your owners manual, or set the camera to Automatic), and if there is a difference between what you're seeing in the viewfinder, and what images the camera is taking, consider calling Fuji, as it sounds like a hardware issue.

Fugi S5000 2gb xd M+ Computer says it's not formated


Yes, it would appear that you solved your own problem. The Fuji S5000 apparently only takes the max of 512 mb card. I own a newer Fuji S700 and it works fine with a 2 gb SD card, but I haven't tried anything bigger. Your best bet is to see if you can exchange those 2 gig cards for 512 mb cards at the store where you purchased them, and then try the 512's to see if your pc will read the pics. Explain to the store what the problem is and they should allow you to make the exchange.

Flash problem


Same here. Any flash picture comes out nearly bleached out. Started from one picture being fine to the next being white. I'm very frustrated because I love this camera. I have a Digi Rebel and prefer my Fuji 5000! Anyone have any ideas?

Photos are too bright, almost white....


camera makers would like to use flash lights as bright as the sun, so the flash is fine. the problem lies in the exposure time. continue trying different exposure settings. most makers provide these as pre-programmed settings while some offer manual fine tuning.
