Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Scrambled focus of all subjects

Camera has been great--not abused or dropped--during a football game, started getting horizontal lines through my lens (was using LCD at the time); appears to "scramble" or distort anything I point the camera at. Never had this happen before. Problem was intermittent for a week or two; now seems to be permanent problem. It sees the subject but distorts it greatly. Have tried new batteries, re-formatted cards, etc. Problem is more likely in the lens I believe but have no idea what is wrong. Any ideas on what is wrong and how to correct it? Thanks Vick

    Similar problem. Tried resting the camera and resetting mose of the features. Removed batteries and changed memory could not resolve. All functions worked except saved picture and horizontal bars and finally a white screen with dark bar on bottom.



    Returned to fuji for repair out of warranty $160 about two weeks total.



    No problems since about 20,00 photos with camera.

I had the same problem.  What cured it for me was going into setup mode and changing almost all the funtions.  Like changing adapter to yes, frame No. to renew, and ccd- raw to on.  

Then moving throught the the auto, sp, Movie funtions, and repeating the move to setup and changing the adapter to yes, frame No. to renew, and ccd- raw to on, until my camera started focusing on it own.

I had given up it and was going to send it for repairs but it works fine now.

Horizontal lines have appeared on the screen what has caused this and can I get rid of the lines.


The LCD in the viewfinder likely has connection problems or broken circuits. Did you drop it recently? Was it subject to extreme temperature etc recently? You may find the lines shift around or even go away for some time. That would imply bad connections. If your technical enough to disassemble it, there is often a rubberised connector use between the LCD and circuit board that can be cleaned. It's delicate work tho.

I have a Canon A720is (about 5 years old) that recently has started to show problems.


I think you immersed camera in water. This might have damaged corroded contact of LCD supply line and PCB.

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures. The closer...


Have you tried to reset to original settings in the setup window. I would try that maybe..
If that doesn't work then its probably an issue with your sensor unit which is apart of your lens.

The pictures have horizontal lines


This is electronic shutter problem that is the reason you get blinder effect/ noise on picture. Electronic shutter is located in lens mechanism and lens assembly will be replaced to solve the issue. Nearest Samsung service center or local camera repair shop will help you to replace lens assembly.
Thanks.

Casio Exslim EX-Z33: Lens Error Message; Lens stuck


The camera might not of had been dropped or abused at that moment, but it sounds like one of your ribbons is not full connected to its port due to a previous unnoticeable drop or mishandling. In other words, if you are savvy enough to open the camera, remove the ribbons (2 of them, found on the front side of the camera coming from the lens) and re-insert them into their ports. I have only needed to do this once on this particular camera, but at least 30 times on the Exilim line of Casio cameras. Hope this helps.

Camera was dropped. Now there are horizontal


Most likely damage occurred to the LCD screen. You can replace it yourself if you can get the part, or you can pay someone to replace it. I was quoted $125 for repair, so I ordered one off ebay and did it myself for $25. If you google the problem, something like "Finepix E900 digitial camera LCD screen replacement", you will find articles that describe how to do it yourself. If you decide to try it, make sure you discharge the flash capacitor. It will stay charged for days, and won't hurt you, but will "bite" you, possible causing you to drop the camera or flinch and hurt yourself. I discharged the capacitor by shorting it's two contacts with the end of a flathead screwdriver. Short it 2 or 3 times, just to make sure you've drained the charge. If you don't want to go to all this trouble, you might opt for a new digital camera- I've seen name brands for $69, about half the cost of a repair shop. Good luck, and be careful with these cameras- hundreds of them get dropped, bumped, and sat on with the lens extended, and that often renders them useless, or uneconomical to repair.

Horizontal Lines through the photo


Horizontal may not be due to the CCD sensor. It can be due to the lens itself. I swap lens from a non-working camera to replace the one with horizontal lines. I found out that I was able to get the camera to work to take great pictures.

E18 error on canon digital camera s200 powershot dropped it and now the lens is stuck halfway out/in The lens will not open, it was not dropped. I get e18 error.


Canon Powershot's error E18 has to do with the lens:
If it appears on a black LCD with E18 written on the corner, it is mostly due to the lens getting stuck while trying to extend. The camera will beep a few times and the LCD will display a little E18 in the lower-left corner. The lens gets stuck in the extended position, and refuses to move either to focus the lens or to retract when powered off.
I am giving below a link which will help you with E18 problem.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have a proble.

You can Try the following also;
Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fully charged batteries back in and turn the camera on. if it doesnot work then,

2: Remove the batteries again, as also remove the memory card. Then install the newly charged batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life.
3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during start up. This extra power can be useful to overcome any grit or sand particles that may be jamming the lens.
4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

Try the above and let me if its any help.
Please do rate and thanks for using FixYa and Best fo luck to get you camera out of E18!

Using a 70/200 lense with a annon 40D at a football game at night


to get good pictures you have to stay at least at the same speed as the aperture:
100mm - 1/100sec mini
200mm - 1/200sec mini
if you are in automatic mode, the camera says" there is no enough light, the aperture is max (f:2.8 or f:4) so i shut down the speed." and go against the rule. you have several solution:
1 you stay in automatic mode and take yor photos with a tripod.
2 you put your camera in speed pririty, with the good speed, and try not to moove during the shoot (you can put your camera on something stable)
3 you tune up the iso
