Question about Fuji FinePix 4900 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Great Camera, but drains batteries in very short time frame

I spent over $1000 on this camera when it was new. I've never been able to use it much because fully charged and even new batteries only last for 15 to 30 minutes!!!! Have been very frustrated!

Turns off when cover is closed


First don't spent too much mont for repairs, because cameras are becoming cheaper and cheaper and in the mean while better and better.
You could try to open and close the cover several times and hope it starts working as it should. It has a switch connected to it, so the camera can see if the cover is open or closed. Now it is giving the wrong information. If the camera comes on, when the cover is open, that indicates the battery is still good, unless the it stops working within a short period of time.

Battery drain


you might be using normal cells you try use alkaline cells it would work great or check your camera literature if you can use rechargeble batteries which would even be greater as it would cost one time and always free especially with camellion always ready which retains charge for months.

My Nikon Coolpix s550 won't turn on despite having charged the battery. I went out and bought a new battery from Best Buy today and tried to get information on what might help but, surprise, the guy...


refurbished items sure have hidden defects/problems that later contributes to malfunction. i think, one of its internal chips(techy things inside) has worn out... probably needs replacement.. i suggest look for a technician.. if you're living in the philippines,it's easy to find someone. you can save your lovely camera and lil money of course.

The camera functions great. After a very short time the batteries drain. Is this a common problem? Fixable for a cost less than the replacement cost of the camera?


Yes. and Yes. I am guessing in the dark. I am assuming that your digital camera takes rechargeable batteries? If it does, after so many times you charge you battery they do have a tendency to go bad.

There are many website out there that will sell you a battery for that camera, but becarful some will sell you refurbish battery. To be on the safe side I would go to the manufactor of the camera website first to see what a new battery would you there.

I try to turn on my camera and the lens comes out but then goes right back in and beeps as if the batteries are low but I know they aren't. I can still view the pictures I have already taken by pressing...


hi

i know its sounds odd but yes the charge on the batteries (Voltage/Amps) is falling short for the camera to start as it takes more power to run the camera than to just preview your pictures

one suggestion i can give here is
(this could be potentially hezardous so tread caution)
if you have rechargale batts then try electro jump to them take any source which is roughly 2-3times the voltage of the batteries (eg: if the batt voltage is 1.25 volts take a 3-5volts source) and connect the +ve wire to the +ve and -ve wire to the -ve of the battery and hold for 10 to 15 secs and then immediatly place it for charging and let them fill charge and use them till the batteries are completely drained
repeat this cycle for 2 -3 times and batteries will come back to life

be careful to connect the wires correctly else they might destroy the batts also not to hold for more than 10-15 secs

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

Batteries fail in very short time


I had the same problem but I fixed it by buying 2 rechargable CRV3 batteries and the charger. At the time such batteries were not common, so although I got a brand that I never heard of (CTA) and they have been great, They last a long time and power is no longer an issue.

Digicam problem


Is it rechargable batteries (orignal for the camera), or are you using standard batteries? (AA/RC6 kind of batteries)

If you use AA batteries (or similar) make sure you use alkaline batteries of a good brand. Cheap batteries ofteh don't have the power to run digital cameras. Especially using the LCD screen drains the batteries.

If you have a new rechargable battery and it last only a short time see if using it and recharging it a few times helps the bettery "getting into it". If not, your camera may need repairs.

Camera batteries drain quickly


Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.
