Question about Fuji FinePix S304 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Fuji S304 need too much power

The Problem (with new batteries or akkus) is the camera works only for a few seconds. Then the screen is black nothing is working.
Could anyone help me (with the same problem)?
I think an electronic part needs too much energy.

thanks Martin

    The problem is not the batteries, it is the camera itselfe.
    If I use a external 5V supply it didn't work too.
    Just the LED above the screen ligths for a second than the camera is switcht off automatically

    Seem to have exactly the same problem-I think it has to do with the battery voltage detection-so I might try some batteries rather than recharchables, since they should give me 6 rather than five volts.
    The official Fuji charger doesn't work either...

    Wow...I've the same problem....don't have the AC to try but have tried both rechargable and regular batteries and the same thing turns on and then off to a black screen....if I turn it on to the play mode...I can view pics.

Potentially-I just found this out--this can be caused by a poorly locking door for the mpoor battery life fuji finepixemory card.
Try and turn your camera on holding the door closed shut, and see what happens.

I suggest you use energizer e2 lithium batteries is has long time run with digital cameras and is good for fast camera shooting. 10-year shelf would be able to save a lot with this batt.

Date/Time problem

Hi all, same problem happened also with my S304. I' ve deassembled it and there IS an internal battery on one of the pcb's inside. So, i'm sure that if this is replaced by a new one, this problem should be fixed. Replacement will be a little bit tricky as the battery is soldered internally. If i have found the right type of battery, i'll post it, but this can take a little time ;-) F

Fuji S304 Power Switch

not if you have never done this before. It sounds like something that a local repair shop could fix. Just note that even if it's a minor fix, and the shop suggests to send it to fuji, you'll be looking at a very high rate. 100$ and up. look for someone that says s/he can do it in-shop. good luck
