We have a FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera. The camera will no longer take pictures. I replaced batteries, hooked up the power adapter, siwtched lenses and all I get is psychodelic images in the playback. It HAS to be something electronic.

Hello and thank you for choosing JustAnswer.com.

It sounds like your CCD sensor has gone out. Please contact Fuji using the link below as some models had this issue as defective. Give them your model number to see if yours is one of the models affected and qualifies for free replacement of the part.
