Re: Konica Minolta Lithium-Ion Battery Recommendation...

I've used many different brands of NP-400 compatible batteries in the A2 and have found the following: genuine NP-400's have a 1500mAh capacity and generics often claim up to 1750mAh. In practice, I've found that some of the generics clearly have vastly less capacity than stated and even those which do initially last a bit longer than a genuine NP-400 fall off dramatically in their performance after a hundred or so full discharge/recharge cycles. Genuine NP-400's are quite predictable with their short battery life, but performance remains consistent over around two hundred charging cycles.

I've never had any leakage issues with any of the batteries which I've used and as the compatibles are far less than half the price of originals prefer to use them despite the shorter service life.

I've had best results using the optional BP-400 battery grip. Two NP-400's seem to last far longer than just feeding two successive single NP-400's into the camera. The ability to use six AA-size zinc alkaline batteries has also been very useful although they drain really quickly.

Fuji s3 does not turn on...


You have done the right thing, so far. That which I would first have suggested. Congratulations! You would be surprised how many persons ignore the need for fresh batteries.

Yes, the camera should now be reset, and if that fails, service is required to make certain of your investment.

However, the battery must first be determined to be an actual Fuji battery, and if not, this is not your fault.

Please read the following:

Recommendation for Use of Genuine Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery Pack for FUJIFILM Digital Cameras Thank you for using Fujifilm Products.
It has been our policy to recommend that the genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery pack be used for Fujifilm digital cameras that use a battery pack.
However, it has been confirmed that there are certain counterfeit battery packs available in the market that look very similar to a genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery pack.
Some of these may not comply with safety standards, they may cause serious problems, such as overheating, leaking, bursting, or fire.
For your safety, we would like to remind you to only use genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery packs for Fujifilm digital cameras.
Please note that Fujifilm will not accept responsibility for any camera problems, accidents, and damage of any nature that may occur due to use of non-genuine Fujifilm battery packs.
We appreciate your kind understanding and cooperation in this regard.

Hi this is common problem if your sure that these batterys are new and you have used that make and type of battery before than the problem will be on the board of the camera itself.
If these batterys are ones you have not used in your camera before then the chances are these batterys are just not powerfull enough so you can by a recharge pack for your camera ok so let me know if its new batterys and if you have used this type before.

Also insted of using the lcd can you turn the screen of then try taking picture using normal view finder as you would on a none digital cam

It could just be that the batterys you brought are faulty and might be worth trying another set before giving up.
These camera usuall wont switch on with normal batterys so just try another set or if you have let me know.
If the battery says low bat then goes off then these batterys will not work if tryed again but if you can get camera on turn off the screen then try taking picture ok get back to me and let me know ok
