Flashing Display - Lens Error


Recommended Posts

My X-T1 has just gone back to Fuji a second time for the same problem. When I turn on the camera, the rear lcd display begins flashing (alternating between black and whatever the camera is pointed at every second.) Check out this YouTube link: https://youtu.be/ZEe0O8eWQCk. All camera functions (other than on/off) are frozen when this happens.

 

When I sent it (along with my lenses) to Fuji in December, they were able to replicate the problem only once, and never again. They finally shipped it back to me 6 weeks later, having basically only upgraded the firmware. Camera was fine for about 50-60 shots, then the problem returned. The problem appears NOT to be lens related, since the problem occurs with both my Fuji lenses, as well as a random Fuji lens supplied by the retail salesperson. Someone suggested it could be the Auto Focus motor; I've also heard about a problem with the ribbon that connects the lens to the body, but I know nothing about that.

 

Anyone else experienced this problem and found a fix? Thanks

This just happened to me with a three week old XT1. After reading the above posts, I removed the lens and carefully cleaned the lens and camera contacts and pins with a pencil eraser tipping the camera face down so no debris would drop on the sensor. Put the lens back on and the camera is now fine. So this seems to be related to the lens-camera connection.

I have the same problem with my Fujifilm X-T10 and was very disappointed to find out, after booking time with Fujifilm in Osaka, waiting a week and traveling one hour to the place, to hear that they stopped fixing this model and there's nothing they can do about my camera that is less than 5 years old. It's appalling how they can think that a digital camera is disposable and we should just buy a new one. I am really disappointed.
