Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD flickering / Purple/Green Photos

Last week I noticed when I turned on my Fujifilm Finepix S7000, the LCD was flickering all crazy like the tracking on a VCR gone crazy. Sometimes turning off and on gets rid of it, but then everything I see in the LCD (and eventually onto the actual picture) turns green and purple. Say you take a picture of your cat. Your cat would be a green smudge and the background would be purple. It seems more like some artistic filter I applied in Photoshop than an actual photograph.

So, some issues going on here. What's malfunctioning? How much can I expect to pay to fix? Is it worth fixing?

    same problem with purple and green screen

  • mark_grimm Sep 02, 2008

    The picture is wild, kind of like an Andy Warhol on LSD picture. Sometimes it is black with streaks through it. I wonder if it's the CCD on the fritz. Reset did not fix it.

    I have exactly the same green and purple problem, my camera is 4 years old and now unusable. I have contacted Fuji and they assure me that cameras in this country do not have a CCD problem but will fix it for £98.76. more than the camera is worth.They tell me they have no problems like this reported, with reports on this site mine makes 5.

I'm sorry to tell you, your CCD its death, no human intenvention can fix it, you must replace it, when a CCD fails, it's literally death, you can not fix it, its a very delicated part, and the fail it's some kind of microscopic evaporation or filtration problem, I'm pretty sure that it has no fix. I spend the last year trying to fix mine, but with negative results.

My s7000 batterries do not last very long i am wondering if something is draining them down

Release Date: 12 January 2004

Fujifilm today announced that a number of early FinePix S7000 Zoom digital cameras may experience battery power depletion when used with some CompactFlash™ memory cards.

This fault does not occur when the S7000 is used with either an xD-Picture Card™ or a Microdrive™, nor does it occur in any other Fujifilm products that offer a CompactFlash™ storage facility, such as the FinePix S2 Pro, S602, S602 Pro or M603.

Cameras with serial numbers above 34L60001 (inclusive) were produced after 15 December 2003 and therefore will definitely not experience this battery drain problem.

In the short term, the problem can be avoided by unloading then re-loading the batteries just after the camera is switched off. The camera's power supply will then perform normally.

Okay I hope you have found a fix for your problem but if not what I suspect has happened is the Focus mode Selector has been shifted to a manual mode. Page 21 of your manual here is a screen shot of the selector switch

Maybe your computer is virus infected. Better to download your pix using card reader. This will also make your camera safe from virus from your computer.

The batteries were drained in my FinePix S7000 camera whthe camera was not in use.

The CompactFlash card may have caused the batteries to drain. Some solid state CompactFlash cards consume power while inserted in the FinePix S7000 even if the camera is turned OFF. Fujifilm recommends removing the CompactFlash card when the camera is not in use. Microdrives and xD-Picture Cards do not exhibit this problem.
