here is the copy and paste from fujifilm on the s2 sensor issue.

FUJIFILM



Thank you for your patronage of Fujifilm FinePix digital cameras. In order to ensure that our customers are satisfied with our products, we want to be sure that you are aware of a service advisory that was issued with respect to a limited number of cameras.

FUJI PHOTO FILM U.S.A., INC. announces that some of the FinePix A303, F410, F700 and S2 Pro digital camera models may develop a problem with the CCD imaging censor. However, the problem only affects a limited number of units and may not occur in all cameras.

The symptoms are captured images that appear completely black, have a purplish cast or multi-colored distortions. These symptoms would be seen on the camera LCD monitor when the camera is in the shooting mode or during playback. A limited number of these models will have these problems. The following list of serial numbers and model names may be affected:

Model:


Serial Number Rnage:


FinePix A303
Serial numbers are found on the bottom of the cameras.


3JA4**** - 3JA5****

FinePix F410



32A1****


32A6**** - 32A7****


32A9****

FinePix F700



33A0****


34A1****

FinePix S2 Pro



31A127** - 31A143**


31A127** - 31A143**


33A000** - 33A007**


34A000** - 34A004**


If your camera serial number is on the list and experiences the symptoms described above and have no other additional damage/malfunction, FUJI PHOTO FILM U.S.A., INC. will repair your camera at no charge, even if your standard one-year limited warranty has expired. If your camera is beyond the standard one year limited warranty period, you will receive a written estimate for any additional damages or malfunctions not listed in this Service Advisory.

This announcement is issued by FUJI PHOTO FILM U.S.A., INC. and is limited to only those Fujifilm products imported to the U.S.A. by FUJI PHOTO FILM U.S.A., INC. and sold by FUJI PHOTO FILM U.S.A., INC. to authorized dealers.

IF SERVICE IS NEEDED:
Please package the camera carefully using ample padded material to prevent damage in transit. Include your name, address and phone number with the shipment as well as a general description of the problem. Keep a record of the camera's serial number and shipment tracking number. Ship your camera to the Fuji Service Center noted below:

Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc.
1100 King George Post Road
Edison, NJ 08837
Attention: Camera Repair Department / CCD Advisory
