XT30 issue: saves blank/black pictures only

Karma Schinken

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, my camera started acting up a week ago saving more and more blank pictures (100% black) and I don't know how to fix the issue. In the beginning 4 pictures out of 10 were blank but now every pic is blank.

I tried different lenses (obviously without lens cap), different SD Cards and batteries. Resetting the camera didn't help and formatting the SD-Cards didn't work either. The Firmware is updated.

LCD Screen and shutter button work normally but in every light condition/manual/auto the camera only saves black pictures.

What could the issue be? Anyone else experiencing similar problems?

Thanks in advance, Michele.

I have experienced the same.. all the sudden many many of the pictures are totally blank and there is no way to get anything from them. Its interesting they are around 26MB in size for the raw file (different pics, different size, so it is not all just black), so it wrote something in the file, but I wonder what could be causing that.
I wonder if it is the memory card which it is damaged?? No idea.
Have you got any solutions for it?

Thanks in advance.

I had the same problem last year in November. I send it to fuji service and they replaced the front part of the camera. As I got it back, everything worked fine for me.

Then at the beginning of March the cam showed up with "turn off and on the camera" combined with a shutter sound. I send it back again. They replaced the motherboard without to charge. But as I received it, the camera couldn't read the aperture from the lens. So back to fuji again and they replaced the upper part of the cam. Last weekend I tried the cam and what's wrong again? The sensor between LCD and EVF doesn't worked. I called the service and I send it back again. Currently I'm waiting for a new X-T30 from the service. 

These are my experience with the problem of this thread and something more. Hope you'll have more luck!

Best regards

    • I was laying in bed and heard a hooting outside my window and was able to get a shot of this guy.  The conditions were terrible, 1am, overcast and starting to rain so it was extremally dark.  400mm, ISO 12800, f5.6 SS 1.5s and heavily processed.  All I could make out was a dark shadow in the branches once my eyes adjusted.  The wind was also picking up so I couldn't lower the shutter speed anymore to drop the ISO.   I had to use manual focus and kept firing off shots slowing adjusting the focus each time time until it seemed in focus.  The photo is is obviously horrible but it's fun finally having some reach and very cool this owl showed up just after getting the lens.  I think I'm going to have to build some owl boxes and put them up around the property. I also need to learn to navigate through the settings in the dark.

    • Have you done all of these: - Set the Drive dial on top of the camera to Bracketing (BKT) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Choose the three film simulations you want to use and (most important) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Bkt Select : Choose Film Simulation  
    • You have Clarity in the Image Quality menu set to something other than zero
    • I use back button focusing on X-T5 but only lock AF using Switch option. I have set both AF ON and AEL buttons to AF ON because I kept pressing the wrong button accidentally and I let the camera take care of AE Lock when shutter half-pressed. BTW I think Fujifilm could do also do a better job of locating the other Fn buttons particularly the one next to the shutter button as it is really difficult to get to. I;d prefer them all in a vertical line on the front so can easily feel which one I'm pressing!
    • Can anyone provide me with the answer. I am new to fujifilm camera.  I am using the XT4 and in single shot mode, everytime, I take a shot, the Lcd screen will display "storing" and I have to wait for the message to disappear before I can take the next shot! Is there a way to turn this off.
