Question about Fuji FinePix F610 Digital Camera

Fuji finepix f610

When I swap the main battery I lose the date, time & image settings. Presumably there is (or was!) an internal back up battery. Is this so and is it replaceable?

    If anyone knows what to do let me know.



    Also, if you know where I can get a users manual I would appreciate it.



    Someone one gave this camera to me without it.



    Thanks

If this is like the F410, there's a soldered back-up battery on the flexi-pcb connected to the power socket.

No backup, just re-set the time and date as prompted when you turn the camera back on, it takes 1 minute....!

Why do I lose date/time on Fuji FinePix S6500 digital camera when I change batteries


You lose the date/time because the camera has no power to it to keep the settings. Basically don't leave the batteries out if you want it to keep the date/time. On the other hand it will just sit and run the batteries down just sitting there off. It is a bit annoying but that's why. Most cameras store an internal charge so they can keep the date/time but it is not supposed to last very long, it was designed so you could swap out dead batteries without having to reset the time/date every time. If it is happening on simple battery changes it means something may be wrong with the camera.

My Fuji Finepix S5100 camera keeps losing its settings and date and time when the batteries die. Is there a small "watch" type battery that can be replaced so it can keep its memory?


There is no "watch" battery in the camera. Always keep fresh batteries on hand and switch them out quickly. That usually solves the problem.

I have a Fuji Finepix S7000 digital camera. I works fine, but, when the batteries get discharged, the camera looses all the "setup" info (date, time, etc...)... Is there an internal battery or something...


There is no internal battery. When the batteries become discharged or removed, the camera retains the date/time settings for about 24 hours. Most people have backup batteries fully charged so when one set is low in the camera, they can make the change quickly.

Is ther an internal battery in my fuji s 7000


yes. usually soldered on to the main board. Goes flat after a few years and camera will not store date and time or any of your settings when you take the batteries out

Hi, Every time I change the batteries now, I lose my time,date etc settings.


I don't have any experience with a fuji but I do believe it has a small internal battery that keeps just enough juice to operate things like date and time. I would take it to your local camera shop they will stear you in the right direction if not make the repair for you.

Fuji FinePix S9000 battery change clears date/time.


Hi

I started having a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix F10 after about 3 1/2 years of problem-free use. Another poster had some really helpful advice which I thought I'd pass on. It seems there is an internal battery or capacitor which basically fails after a while, meaning date/time settings etc are lost when the battery is removed. (Some people claim this is a motherboard/chip problem instead - seems to be contentious!) So the camera is faulty, but the problem can be worked around.

The advice I found, which worked for my camera, was this:

- Turn off camera and leave off for approx 15 seconds before opening battery door.
- Change battery quickly (within a few seconds).
- Close battery door and leave camera off for approx 15 secs before turning back on.

This retained all settings when I tested it multiple times. I imagine it might not work if changing over a totally dead battery though.

Hope it helps!

When battery is changed date and image size need resetting


Internal battery or capacitor may be bad and not holding charge to keep settings.

The date time problem ist he internal battery[ A watch type button inside the camera body]

Fuji FinePix S5000 stuck in date/Time mode


Set date and time and camera should work. If camera asks to have date set everytime you take batteries out then the memory 3 volt battery is flat ... replace.
