When I turn on my Fuji Finepix F470 it shows a white screen with what looks like a large black spot and a crack in the LCD screen not the outer clear plastic screen. It then shuts itself off 2 seconds later. I can see the black spot even when it is totally off, maybe the LCD is leaking, I have no idea, someone help!
That is definately a cracked lcd your describing! I doubt there is an easy solution but maybe...
If you are able to get into the menu and disable the LCD that might help.
However! The fact that the LCD is broken shouldn't keep the camera from running (though its remotely possible)
If you can't shut it off or work without it the odds are you've got an expensive paperweight.
At least thats what I gather based on your description.

Unfortunately this is a permanent damage on the screen display - it needs to be replaced. The LCD glass has a cracked - the black spot is the crack. It should not effect your pictures when you take them.
you should replace the lcd screen from an authorized service center. or you can buy the lcd screen alone from ebay and find someone to replace it .remember never open the camera unless you know very well how to replace it.thanks for using fixya. please dont forget to rate my solution
sounds like the keypad ribbon has either popped out of it's socket or, and this would be the common fault, the ribbon has broken. In which case fuji will be your only way to fix and get it serviced at the same time. last quote I recieved was £80.
source a donor camera on ebay for the cheaper option
hi, when you drop it , it broke the color chips sensor , to make it repair , the coast it always arround 125.00 and + , so i sujest , your can try your waranty or buying brand new , ( factorydirect.ca ) they have good price yvon chow !!!
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
I used to get that error all the time with a earlier Fuji FinePix with the slide-over lens cover. If the cover wasn't pushed back completely, the lens would extend only so far and then give an error. Make sure that there's nothing (dirt, hair) on any of the lens surfaces and make sure the lens is fully extending when you do turn the zoom on. Don't let anything touch or bump the zoom while it's moving, either.
Not sure if this will help, since you have a different model. This is what worked for me, though.
I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!
