Check to make sure that you did not accidentally change image format from jpg to crw(camera raw). Your camera lcd will only display jpg files and you need special software to view raw files on the pc.

i beleive that your issue is a setting in the program you are using to view the video. the camera will never skew a video. you may want to change the aspect ratio in the camera to match your viewer, but you should at least be able to set the viewer to maintain aspect ratios on video viewing. try viewing the videos with a different program. i.e. if you are using windows media player, try it with quicktime and see what happens. good luck

Very, very dark (almost black) lcd screen, but is functional


The LCD viewer is made up of the LCD screen, and the backlight. Your backlight is burnt out, or the circuit board isn't sending power to it. Backlights can be replaced separately.

Fuji Finepix split screen


If the picture taken from digicam are ok when viewed from a computer, the lcd viewer has a loose connection or defective already, if you can open your unit, try to disconnect and reconnect the lcd flexwire inside.
