Question about Fuji FinePix Z10fd Digital Camera
I put battery in my camera wrong managed to get it out with difficulty put it in right way now camera not working is it likely i have damaged the camera or just the battery
HATE TO BRING BAD NEWS, BUT THERE IS THIS THING CALLED REVERSE POLARITY. THAT IS WHEN YOU PUT THE BATTERY IN WRONG AND THE CURRENT GOES INTO THE CAMERA THE WRONG WAY AND POOF! ELECTRONICS GET FRIED! THEY ARE VERY SENSITIVE AND THEY USUALLY CAN'T WITHSTAND SOMETHING LIKE THIS. IF YOU HAVE TRIED A NEW BATTERY AND IT STILL DOESN'T WORK, COST OF REPAIRS WOULD BE MORE THAN WHAT YOU PAID FOR THE CAMERA. ALSO, DOING THAT TO A BATTERY WILL KILL IT TO OR CAUSE A FIRE, SO YOU PROBABLY WERE LUCKY TO GET IT OUT OR THAT SOMETHING ELSE FRIED FIRST, BEFORE YOU HAD A MELTDOWN. MOST CAMERAS ON UP THE LINE FROM THIS ONE HAVE SOME WAY TO BLOCK THE BATTERY FROM GOING IN WRONG. THEY HAVE A CURVED SIDE OR SOMETHING THAT WILL ONLY LET IT GO IN ONE WAY. POINT TO REMEMBER WHEN YOU LOOK AT CAMERAS. SORRY FOR THE BAD NEWS, BUT IT WILL SAVE YOU MONEY IN THE LONG RUN,ESPECIALLY IF SOME REPAIR SHOP GOT HOLD OF IT AND DROPPED A $150.00 REPAIR BILL ON YOU.
