Fuji FinePix S5000

Hi everybody,
My beloved S5000 went off two month ago, while i was taking picture during a landing as passenger ................the last photo taken was wonderful, then the display went white! :-( :-( :-(
The shutter itself will continue working , but every picture taken was absolutely white!!
I tried a lot of times to reset the camera, as the fuji maint center explained to me when I called them , but nothing.
During this multiple test 5-6 time the camera worked properly for some seconds then WHITE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plese Help Me!!!!!!!!!!!

    My s5000 has the same problem. My screen is now white when it used to work fine. The shutter is working properly but it only takes a white screen picture. The camera lets me enter menu settings and the display for that is fine, but when it's time to take a picture it will only take a white screen picture even though the shutter readings appear correct. Can you help me?

    My email address is [email protected] if you can let me know how to fix it.

    When you turn on the camera the viewfinder and LCD monitor are blank (white). It seems like the camera is working fine in every other respect except you can't take anything but a picture of the white screen. I have tried taking the batteries out and pressing the DISP button among other things.

This appears to be loose connector to the motherboatd from the screen.
Try gentle squeezing of the casing near the bottom of the body
This may do the trick- otheriwise it is a workshop job and frankly not worth the cost - the money would be better spent on a more uptodate camera.

Fuji s5000. I've owned over 7 years with thousands of photos taken . I love this camera....about a month ago the occasional purple pix started. the lines went away after 45 seconds, then this...

Don't you hate it when this happens? It also sounds as if you already know the LCD, sensor or the shutter have worn out and the cost of repair is no longer economically practical. I'm using a Fuji S100fs for an all a round camera which catches all sorts of uses including time laps. One day I'll be in the same situation you are right now.

Fuji produces wonderful fixed lens cameras loaded with features more then I want or would use but I'd buy another in a heart beat when my S100fs does hit the bricks.

I think also that you answered your own question "my only option" and for that I can only say I'm sorry for your lose.

Best of luck in your search for a "new" friend

I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

Fujifilm S5000 model, works well but have picture problems.

You want to set the focus mode to S-AF, then move the focus mode selector to the lock position.
Hopefully that will fix the problem.

White Screen

I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!
