I have my Fuji A340 and the charging cradle but it won't charge the battery. I bought a new battery thinking maybe that was the problem, but the camera battery still won't charge. Normal AA's will work but when I put my camera on the cradle, the charge light doesnt come on. I can turn my camera on and use it while plugged in with the AC power, but for whatever reason the battery won't charger.
I think this is a general Fuji design fault in the camera circuitry. I have an older F455 which has exactly the same problem and I did the same - bought new batteries only to discover that didn't help.
The only solution is to spend even more money for a stand alone battery charger.

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

the battery can be charged whenever you want to charge it. There may be an issue with the cradle. can you please follow steps below and reply back with the answers?
1) Ensure the cradle is plugged into an active AC outlet and the LED light on the cradle is on. There is a switch on the bottom of the cradle to control the brightness of the LED, set it to the highest. Try different outlets if needed. Does the LED light turn on and stay on (does not blink)? ANSWER: 2) Remove the battery. Place the remote on the cradle and check the LCD screen. The LCD screen should display a 'White' screen with possible colors before going off. Try this a few times to confirm behavior. Did the LCD turn on briefly? ANSWER: 3) Reinsert the Battery. Have you charged the battery for at least 3 hours? If no, please recharge the batteries for at least 3 hours. 4) Did the battery ever boot the remote? If yes, please continue troubleshooting. ANSWER: 5) Remove the battery. Check the 3 gold contacts on the battery to see if there are markings on all the contacts signifying it was connected correctly to the remote. Did the battery have markings on all 3 contacts? ANSWER:
Parts or a new cradle are hard to find. I don't think Fuji makes them any more, although, depending on where you live, that country's distribution source may still have stock. What we sell our customers is a small charger which recharges the battery outside of the camera. They are about $10 US and plug into the USB port on any computer.
BATTERY INSTALLATION AND INFORMATION Your wireless headphone unit requires two rechargeable AAA batteries. Rechargeable batteries are uncharged when you purchase them. Before you can use the wireless headphones, the batteries must be charged for 16 hours. Follow these steps to install and charge the batteries. Installing the Rechargeable Batteries Take care to follow these steps to correctly install the batteries. 1. On the right headphone, locate the battery compartment (1). Use the finger depression on the compartment to turn the battery compartment cover counterclockwise to remove the cover. 2. Insert two AAA rechargeable batteries, carefully following the markings inside to ensure the batteries are inserted properly, with the + and - ends in the correct positions. 3. Replace the battery compartment cover. Charging the Rechargeable Batteries To recharge the headset unit, follow the directions below. Note: The cradle/transmitter on the WHP141 is not a recharging cradle, although you may place the headset in the cradle during recharging. Follow these steps to recharge the NiMH rechargeable batteries. 1. Make sure the ON/OFF switch (2), located on the right headphone, is in the OFF position. 2. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power supply socket (11), located on the back of the cradle/transmitter. 3. Plug the adapter into an electrical outlet. 4. Connect the charging cable (10), located on the back of the cradle/transmitter to the recharging input (3), located on the right headphone. The headphones can either be placed in the cradle/transmitter or placed next to the unit. If the headphones are connected correctly, the charging LED indicator light on the cradle/transmitter (8) illuminate.
my finepixz3 got wet. but after a few days it worked! but when the battery ran out it wont charge. is it the battery? it turned on a few sec when its in the cradle but it wont last after a few seconds it would turned off. is it the battery or the camera itself?
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.
