Question about Fuji FinePix E900 Zoom Digital Camera
I use a Fuji E900 digital camera and have been getting pictures which are too white when I am sure that I took them in good light outdoor conditions (often in bright sunlight,sometimes under bright although grey skies). Moreover, I often get pictures with many lines across them, as if the photo was taken from behind a Venetian blind! I would also like to know the difference between Programmed Auto and Auto. I am under the impression that Auto is the mode that sets aperture and speed automatically. The handbook says about Programmed Auto (I quote): This is an automatic mode to specify the settings except for the shutter speed and aperture setting. My question: If the Programmed Auto does not set speed and aperture, then what does it do?! And how does this mode differ from Auto then? The mind boggles, particularly in the case of a 68-year-old baffled by modern technology! That's me and I am here expressing my gratitude to anyone who will care to help me.
Try this to isolate the problem.
Switch on the camera in auto and put it into full optical zoom. Now turn the camera to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. On full zoom the internal lens will be right up to the outer lens. Now press the button to take a picture. You should be able to see the shutter cover the inside lens and then open again. Did it completely cover the lens? It should do. If not then you will get an over exposed picture or a picture with lines across it.

6 weeks after emailing them about this problem with my E900 camera Fuji finally emailed me back to suggest I send the camera in for repair along with the proof of purchase (the camera is now out of warranty). I have decided to give up with Fuji (the repair would cost around £100) and am sorely tempted by the Panasonic Lumix TZ5 as it has a wide-angle lens. I wouldn't have minded so much if Fuji had got back to me quicker but 6 weeks seems pretty poor to me.

The camera is overexposing; that's why the pictures are washed out or have lines across them as if they were taken from behind a Venetian blind.
Solution: if the camera is still covered by guarantee, Fuji will exchange it free of charge. If not, you'll have to pay for having the shutter replaced by a new one. This does not come cheap.

We have the same problem with white bands oe lines across the image taken with a Fuji E900. Calling Fugi seems to be the only option other than paying to have it fixed

Wow, me too, 3 weeks after warranty expired LINES ACROSS my photo's. The Movie mode works fine. What UP with the LINES? Very upsetting...

Im have the SAME EXACT problem with my E900. It appeared suddenly after one year of use (just a few weeks after the warranty expired). And after searching the net, it seems many have had the same problem with this and model E550. It's not you. It's the camera. It has nothing to do with the settings or the modes. My next step is to contact Fuji over the phone and see what they suggest. Good luck with it.
