    I've changed my batteries, I turned the button to auto, the green light is on for a second, then the red light then nothing... I've changed batteries many times but it won't start. I've had that camera for only 2 years.

Listen you all...if the battery contacts are ok and the battries fully charged then it is a dead power board. make the investment and send it to a repair place unless it is an old junk and not worth repairing

I found a screw shorting the filter capacitor that was from the lens mount. However it had already caused damage.

I have one with the same problem. My friend complained it had just stopped but a few week earlier the pop up flash wouldn't close. On stripping it down I found the mechanism (3 metal parts) all over the main board. What they had shorted out is anyone's guess but after checking to see if the parts were replaceable I saw the flimsy plastic mount for these parts and it looked as it it was designed to break. BMW

Ive seen this proble before. Im afraid its dead. There is a problem that fuji will not address. The camera is all plastic and the front has a lens adapter made from aluminum. There are 3 screws that hold it on and they have no locktight on them. Eventualy they work loose and fall out, the front becomes loose like its broken but its not. The screw then bounces around inside the unit till it eventualy shorts and blows somthing out. Since there is no shematics for it its nosy to. Ive called Fuji and told them ive seen this problem many times and they wont admit there is a fault.

    One other thing you can check but i dont think it will help, is the memory door. Push on it as hard as you can when you try and power it up. If thats the problem its an easy fix if thats not it then its junk.

Fuji finepix e510 won't turn on

If your Fuji e510 battery system is like the Finepix S3000 or the S3100 take a look at the following postings: Finepix S3100 (Camera power does not come on...) by banobo of Feb 07,2008 and check out solutions #2 & #4, (Mine is #4), Also see posting by "tomawamba for Fuji S3000" and my slightly differently worded solution.(Only one posted). May be best to get camera working before connecting with anything else. Good luck, be patient.

FUJI S3000

My camera now works!!! Found a suggestion to clean the battery compartment on opposite side of switch with lighter fluid. Only had pressurized fluid for lighter so used rubbing alcohol instead. Put a few drops of 70% Isopropyl alcohol in chamber and clicked switch several times. Dried with hair dryer. Didn't work, tried again. Didn't work. Then tried a few drops of wd-40, clicked several times, rinsed with alcohol, dried with hair dryer, clicked several times AND IT WORKED. Still works. Thanks everyone(especially codmac) for the ideas.

Battery life

Try buying very high quality recharable batteries. You might have low quality batteries and the camera eats the battery up quickly.

Fuji finepix s3000

This is an easy possibility, Try using an eraser on all the contacts for the batteries. The ones on the battery door and the ones inside the camera. Try to get them shiny, the harder white erasers work best. If that doesn't solve to power problem, the camera may have blown its power fuse internally. That repair would likely cost 50-60$

NEW Batts but keep getting low batt indicator and....

Sorry, no solution. Same problem here. I am very unhappy because initially it took great pictures. The first one I tried only worked a couple of days and I returned to store and they replaced. Second worked a couple of months and now immediately draws down power and won't work on new batteries. I was told to use NH-10 batteries (rechargeable). I did this from the beginning. Still won't hold charge.
