    Question Something wrong with my camera

    Maybe this isnt the place to ask but it seems you guys are experience with
    camera.

    Anyways I have a Fuji Finepix F401 (4yrs old).
    This weekend (xmas of all times!!!) it decide to not work!!!
    I think it maybe the CCD sensor??
    The LCD monitor is just totally white and when I try taking a picture
    its just bunch of line (I'll attach a photo).
    So I am right, is it the ccd sensor?
    Is it fixable....?
    Should I just get a new camera?

    Thanks awhole bunch!!!

    It could be the CCD, or it could be any number of other things inside your camera. Most likely, it is not practical or economical to fix. Besides, there are much better cameras on the market today for much less money.

    thats a CCD issue
    if you cam carries a 2/3" Sony sensor, have a chat with the local Sony people. They should replace it free because there has been found to be a QC issue with those sensor sizes.

    I didn't think this camera used the Sony chip, mea culpa. If so, Riley is correct that you may get a free replacement. With this camera, I'd try to get a discount off a new model rather then a refurbished or repaired version at this point.

    i have no idea david
    the things 4 yrs old he says
    its not really a dealer issue
    you have to talk with the importer aka fuji

    other makers are having the same issues with some 2/3" sensors that i believe are sony supplied. sony has a recall on at the moment
    leica is repairing for free, out of warranty digilux 2 with sensor issues

    According to this link the Fuji F401 is not part of the recall. The F410 is. Did you mistype the name?

    If your camera is not on the list you are probably out of luck getting any repair or compensation.

    Thanks David but I typed it right (f401)

    I went to bestbuy today and they said it was the CCD and since the warranty ran out I opted to buy a new camera instead.....Canon SD700IS!
    I was due for a new camera anyways, although I really loved my Fuji

    Time to play with my new one!!

    Thanks alot guys!
