Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Optional DC Battery Pack Use

I have purchased an optional external battery pack for the S-7000 and the camere worked fine until I used the battery pack on another device that required the polarity on the tip to be reversed. When I went back to using the battery pack on the S-7000, I forgot to switch the tip polarity back to positive and now camera does not work with the battery pack. I was told that there is a diode that blows when the polarity is reversed that prevents futher damage to the camera. I work in the electronics field as a repair technician and I would like to fix this because I'm sure I'll forget to swith the polarity back and blow the diode again. Where can I find a service manual for the FinePix S-7000 and are parts available for this camera? Thanks, JazzyMike

Thanks for contact us. Mr.JazzyMike As u described, i think there is serious problem in your camera.I suggest as follows * If you are familiar to open the camera,safely open it. * safely discharge C612 located on power/flash board. * Then safely pull out power/flash board from the chasis. * Then check fuses no. F 500,F 501,F 503,F 504,F 505, F 506 if any of them found blown replace it and then go back. SAFETY : TAKE SPECIAL CARE OF CONNECTORS AND FLEX PWB. Dont use external battery pack for any digital camera. If you are not succeed contact us. mail us : cam_tek@sancharnet.in

Bad luck mate. It's easy done, I did the same with a $35,000.00 Camera. Only once though :-) You're right it should be diode protected but the diode doesn't always help and a good circuit will also have a fuse in line. Take the camera apart and find out where the power leads actually enter the PCB. Somewhere very close to that will be the diode obviously marked with a D prefix eg. D1001 or D101. Check to see if it's open circuit and if it is replace it. Be careful if it's a surface mount component, it's easy to damage the board. If by chance the diode has gone closed circuit (it's possible) then it would take the fuse out as well. Look for a component marked with an F prefix. Sometimes the circuit board will have a warning about replacing the fuse with the same value component. This will give you an idea where it is on the board. Sometimes a manufacturer will use a fusible resistor in the power section but I haven't come across a digital camera with one of these yet. Now for the bad news. Occasionally a diode will blow closed circuit and then blow a fuse. Alhough it all happens in milliseconds it's possible it didn't happen fast enough and taken out various other components with ICs at the top of the list. Hopefully in your case this hasn't happened. I wouldn't fancy having it on my bench if it has :-) Oh! you might even have to check for burnt PCB tracks as well. BMW

It is strange to hear " I work in the electronics field as a repair technician and I would like to fix this because I'm sure I'll forget to swith the polarity back and blow the diode again. " Anyone having a little knowledge would not attemp to give power supply to any device in the wrong polarity. So chances of doing it again and again is really strange . Anyway, it is true there are safety fuses in the power section of the camera that blows off in case of any change in the supply. Sorry I do not have the service manual. If you happen to find one pls share it with others also. you can search for the fuses manually by keenly observating the power board of the camera.

SOURCE: battery life

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

Battery Packs for Powerware 9355 UPS


The Batts can be charged externally, then refitted, usually I extend the DC cables so I can work with the batt outside the unit. This is ONLY to be done if you understand the risk and what may happen if you get it wrong.

Batts are always live and can cause fire/explosion/severe burns if shorted!
IF YOU ARE NOT SURE THEN GET SOME EXPERIENCED HELP!

OK so the UPS will not normally recognise a very low batt pack, that is the reason you can not start the test, this test will back of the rectifier so the batt pack takes the load for a short period.

If the batt pack is out of range then this will make the load go off, so the UPS is designed not to allow the test,unless the batt is at the right level.

If you can get the batt pack up close to normal then the unit will recharge it to full.,Wait until it is fully charged before testing.
If this is sucessful the cyle the batt a few times allowing it to reach around low batt warning before recharging. This will assist the batt in recovery. During this process if possible monitor with a test intrument(fluke 123 or 43B will do) the batt pack discharge curve , once the batt pack has dropped to its charge level from float, it should be a smooth decay.
depending on the state of the batts you may be ok, if there are weak ones in the string then you may have to replace all of them depending on the age of the batt pack.

MAKE SURE YOU ARE VERY CAREFUL WITH BATTERIES, THEY ARE VERY DANGEROUS, AND ALWAYS LIVE!

Check you manual for safety procedures, BEFORE working on Batteries.


hope this helps

thanks for using Fixya

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.


Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Low battery icon on Midland LXT350 walkie-talkies


Your LXT350 is equipped for using an optional rechargeable NiMH battery pack which can be recharged by inserting the AC adapter into the radio charge jack, or with the optional desktop charger.

I would make sure the radio is off, then insert the charger. Charge only for the prescribed time (no more/no less) and remove from the charger.

Charge time is initially 24 hours. Charge time is about 12 hours thereafter. For maximum battery life, it is recommend charging the battery pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the radios from the charger when the charge time expires.
