I have just done this very thing. I ordered a new replacement OEM LCD from a seller in the US listed on E-Bay. Even with postage it was a third of the cost of sending the camera to Fujifilm for repair (and Fujifilm wanted a couple of quid less than buying a whole new camera!). To Dismantle the FujiFim S5800 and get the back off the camera you need to remove 5 screws, and dont mix them up as they are different lengths. I used a set of those small jewellers screwdrivers to do this. Make sure you have taken the battery's out and taken the carrying strap off. First remove the screw on the side just above the flap where the memory storage card goes. On the opposite side of the camera where the carrying strap bracket is you will find two screws in the recess, just remove the one screw nearest the back of the camera. Now turn the camera up-side-down. You will find 4 screws around the threaded hole for a Tripod. Remove the two nearest the back of the camera (they are also the widest apart). Now open the battery hatch and remove the screw nearest the outer edge of the camera which is effectively below the memory storage hatch. The back of the camera should now be easy to lift away and reveal the LCD screen. Be careful as there is a small semi transparent printed circuit cable that connects the rotary switch to the main body of the camera. I chose to leave this in place as I was reluctant to remove more parts than necessary - however if you choose to leave it in place be sure support the the back bit of the camera as you do not want to strain rip or excessively twist this cable. The LCD screen rests in place between some guides and had a small piece of black tape holding the end down at the ribbon cable end. Use the blade of one of the screw drivers to lift the corner of the tape away. and you can lift the LCD screen up. The Ribbon Cable looks like a push fit but in fact there is a tiny black hinged section holding it in place. Be very careful and lift this up and the old cable can be released and removed. You will find the same system holding the cable in place for the rotary switch so if you want to give yourself working room you could disconnect that in this manner. Fitting is now a reversal of the removal process. Put the ribbon cable into the socket as far as it will go, No force will be required. Clip the tiny black hinged section down and this will lock the cable in place. Re-assemble the camera and remember to fit the memory storage hatch while doing so. Note: the storage hatch has a small plastic lug that presses a switch. When the hatch is opened it cuts the camera off (personaly I think this is a bit of weak point in this camera's design, if this lug or switch wears or breaks the camera is not going to work - but that is by the by for now). Presumably this is so you don't add or remove memory cards while the camera is powered up. This means it is difficult to test the new screen without putting the camera back together. But all being well you should be back up and running. Just take your time, study all the parts first and you should be ok. Don't come crying to me though if you break it - remember all repairs are carried out at your own risk.

There should be a section in your manuals. it is not that hard from looking at mine. Should just be unscrewing and removing and replacing said part.

Let me know how you get on.

Good luck.

My screen is not working on my cam can this be fixed? can still take pics just not vies them


Hello

Yes, this can fortunately be fixed for about $50 including labour. I would suggest that you first take you camera to your nearest repair store, let them have a look at the LCD settings before you replace a screen which is not broken.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

I need a new lcd screen for my fuji finepix s700, where can I find one??? My lcd screen on my Fuji film S5800 has stopped working. it is white with stream line colours through it. Can someone please help.


Sounds like your LCD screen is broken. Did you drop the camera? You may be able to find a screen or a broken same model camera with a good screen on eBay. Changing it out, however is NOT for the faint of heart. You will need tiny tools to work on tiny parts with very small electrical connections, a steady hand and nerves of steel with a service manual at your fingertips so that you disassemble only what is needed in the correct order and don't do additional damage. Still want to try it? I recommend taking it to a reputable camera store and getting a quote to repair it. Weigh that cost against the cost of replacing the camera. In the meantime, switch over to the Electronic View Finder. Good luck. (FYI: I will undertake the repair of anything short of a nuclear device, but I will not try a digital camera of any kind.)

Fuji S5800 spare parts


I would see if Fuji would let you send it in direct to them. Alternatively search on ebay for spares or repair camera that you could take the pieces off of.

Good Luck.

Brand new camera - no image in view finder


Have you tried to format the camera? Alternatively, and don't mean to sound rude but have you taken the lense cap off?
Are you getting any menu options on the lcd screen or is it totally blank? If this is the case then likely there is a problem with your camera and you should speak to who ever you bought it from.

Good Luck.
