Question about Fuji FinePix F470 Digital Camera

1 Answer

FinePix F470 Lines on images and faded colors on photo mode.

FinePix F470 from one picture to next,with no reason, images present horizontal lines and faded colors in finder screen and when printed. No difference day or night, flash or not. Previous pics can be seen ok. Finder mode ok, video mode ok. But when a photo is taken, it gets wrong. Restored to factory settings, but no change. Change of card no difference, problem persist. Also black screen appears sometimes when shifting from capture to view or inverse, or when switching on. Any ideas? Anyone who had this problem? Any software or firmware available on the net to reboot camera if software is the problem?
Thanks! (Sept 11, 2009)

You have over exposed pictures due to the shutter sticking.
The video is the clue to the problem. It doesn't use the shutter.
Shutter needs to be cleaned. This is no easy task im afraid

Testimonial: "Thanks, Dave, that's useful,will try clean it,but still think it must be something more, electronical, in the data transfer from sensor to card."

    Sounds like the CCD sensor needs to be cleaned or replaced!

  • david Jan 17, 2012

    Replacing the sensor would mean reclibrating the camera to the new hardware.
    Expensive and for this problem totally not necessary.

How can i fix my Fuji film F470 camera- i dropped it and now pictures have horizontal lines on image after picture is taken

The problem you are experiencing at the moment, is a typical result of a CCD which have blown. A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image).

If seen on both your pc monitor as well as the camera's LCD then it's likely a CCD issue and it's no wonder that it will be more expensive than buying a new digicam. This is why you need to be exceptionally careful when taking care of your camera since most are uber sensitive to being damaged by the slightest miss-handling.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own. Check this links that could give you additiona details:

Horizontal lines appearing in photos

Your camera is having horizontal lines due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems.
Just tap on the side of the camera at times the horizontal lines will disappear.
If the problem is due to your dropping the camera, you might be out of luck.
If you have not dropped your camera and still facing this problem, then contact service people to replace the CCD imager in your camera .

Hope this helps .

All pictures that I take present horizontal line, so tell me what,s reason and what can I do !

The reason for these lines is your shutter sticking or not firing at all.
The video function should be unaffected due to it not using the shutter and is the easiest way the determine the fault.
What causes it is moisture residue building up on the shutter leafs.
On this model if camera it is quite difficult to rectify because the shutter mechanism in side the lens is a sealed unit. It can be done however but takes longer than other models of fuji camera because of this sealed unit.
Cheapest option would be to find a second camera for donor parts. Even if it is damaged you can still remove the shutter mechanism and swap it over.

Your cameras shutter is sticking. lines on photo's or over exposed photo's are due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens.
Video is fine because it does not use the shutter.

The shutter will require cleaning.

Horizontal White Lines in Pictures

I don't think [and the museum will certainly say] This has anything to do with the X-ray/storage whilst in the museums hands. It could be a processing error or a memory card error. Try formatting the card in the camera and taking a new batch of images Try another card. This will estasblish card or camera. If card - buy another card If camera -checxk on the price of a repair but I suspect it will mean when you see the price Buy another camera
