Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera ?

Weird colors in viewfinder

\015 Hello all,My wife has a S2 Pro & it recently started to display weird colors in the viewfinder/screen, as if it was shooting in infrared, wavering image & it records the images the same way. When viewing "older" pictures, taken just before all this started, they show up fine. Any ideas?????Thanks!Luc\015

Answers :

Sounds to me like a CCD problem, which is a bad thing. CCD faults were quite common in the early S2's. It would be worth contacting Fuji about.

can you insert a few images into the thread to have a look at. Need more than one to check consistency of problem.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Purple image was visible in viewfinder and in picture, came on at rare random in 2 months ago. The picture became more frequent, and picture had vertical distortion as well. Pictures unusable. Then good pictures were rare. Now the view in the view finder is black and white only with an electronic type of squiggle between the two colors.

Error Message When I take a photo with Nikon D60 it's as though the shutter gets stuck and it gives an error message on the screen (Error! Press shutter release button again.) The top half of the photos are completely black. Also, there have been a couple of times during this problem that the shutter clicks and when looking through the viewfinder everything appears tinted. Weird, I know! Any ideas or suggestions?

Lost Pictures Our company has the Sony MVC-CD500 digital camera. I recently used this camera to take several pictures while on a job site. Back at the office, I could view the pictures in the camera's viewfinder, but was unable to download to my PC. The camera was unable to finalize, so my IT person used some software to try to read the disk and was unable. The mini-CD does have something on it as we were able to detect the change in color on the CD. Is there any way to recover these pictures? T

I have a four year old Canon S1-IS that worked fine as recently as two weeks ago. I tried to take a photo with it last Friday and all I can see in wither the viewfinder or the display is a very garbled screen with horizontal stripes, that seem to change colors. The display mode DOES display images from the Compact Flash card in good shape. Any suggestions? Bruce Vincent [email protected] 281-379-4596

I have a Canon A720IS 8.0 meg camera that I'm having problems with. I have tried several SC cards; 1 gig and 8 gig. Same results. The pictures and video look fine on the LCD, but when I download to the Canon program, or any other program I have: Picasso, Microsoft, etc. I get the same weird results. Some pictures are okay, however, most are "redone". The result is that some of the picture is okay, but some is realigned. They are always straight lined corrections.

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose
