Question about Fuji FinePix E510 Digital Camera
I purchased this Panasonic camera a year and a half ago. I have it with me at all times and use it frequently. The model is DMC-LZ2. In the last month is has started to take double and triple images once in a while. Most often it's been great and I have loved using it. Last weekend I tried to take a picture and no image would come up on the screen. I took it to the dealer where two guys looked it over and said something must have become disconnected internally and that it would not be cost-effective to fix. The camera will take photos which can be played back but you cannot see an image when you take a picture in the view finder. Is it true it can't be fixed inexpensively? Any suggestions?
All you need is a small triple "y" screw driver and the ability to unscrew 5 screws. There is only one flat cable connected to the circuit board that is held in place with a small plastic blue bar. Gently release the blue bar at each end with a small jewelry screw drive, slide that flat cable out and then back in and reset the cable with the blue bar at each end. Be sure to remove the batteries before you get started and don't touch the flash capacitor, I still holds a charge! If that doesn't fix the problem, then look on eBay for a used LCD or broken E510 thats being parted out. So, yes you can fix it at a reasonable cost, but they won't. A new LCD is $106 + labor.

Hi, I have this camera & when it takes multiple pix, I usually find I've hit the delete button, which also is the "multiple pic" button. Just keep pressing it until the display doesn't show the papers stacked on each other with the letters H, L, or the infinity symbol. If you can see your display...no answers for you on that.
