Old motors and mechanism is eating too much power, thats what you will expect after three or more years using your unit. Digital cameras lasts for about three years working in good condition, after that expect your head to turn using that cam.

Try holding in the power button on the camera with the charger connected to the camera & still plugged into the wall outlet. This may be a reset the manual doesn't tell you about or simply a weird fix for the same problem I had with my F10.

I sent my Fuji S3 pro off to be cleaned and serviced in Miami and to repair the mini USB port which had came loose. After I received it back, all worked well, but I noticed that it eats batteries like...


Digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries, and the early Fuji ones were notorious. You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH rechargeables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task, and they can leak and cause corrosion.

NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH are available, and these will last longer, per charge, than name brand alkalines, as well as being rechargeable. You can buy these with a charger fairly cheaply now (though they obviously cost more than disposables). You will probably want two sets, one to be on charge while you use the other.

All of a sudden my fuji s3 pro isn't recognising the memory card. why is this? the card works fine in another camera.


That's the problem. It works fine in another camera so the card is optimized for that camera. To optimize it for your Fuji S3 pro, you need to format it in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first.

Fuji s3 does not turn on...


You have done the right thing, so far. That which I would first have suggested. Congratulations! You would be surprised how many persons ignore the need for fresh batteries.

Yes, the camera should now be reset, and if that fails, service is required to make certain of your investment.

However, the battery must first be determined to be an actual Fuji battery, and if not, this is not your fault.

Please read the following:

It has been our policy to recommend that the genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery pack be used for Fujifilm digital cameras that use a battery pack.
However, it has been confirmed that there are certain counterfeit battery packs available in the market that look very similar to a genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery pack.

For your safety, we would like to remind you to only use genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery packs for Fujifilm digital cameras.
Please note that Fujifilm will not accept responsibility for any camera problems, accidents, and damage of any nature that may occur due to use of non-genuine Fujifilm battery packs.

Battery life


Get the CHDK plug-in for the S3; it will then show you battery life as a percent. Note - you'll need access to an SD card reader to install it.

Battery life


Hi, Yes, there are both possibilities - either the camera is faulty and drains too much power from battery or the charger is faulty and can't charge the battery enough. How long does it take to "charge" the battery - from the moment you put the battery into charger to the moment it will signalize battery full? Do you have any friend with the same or similar camera? Try using your battery in his camera or recharging your battery using his charger. If not, try your local store if they will allow you to charge the battery in new charger... BTW it is normal for these batteries to have significantly lower life in very cold temperatures. The advise is to have the camera (or just battery) near your body so that it is not in cold for all the time and put it out only for time you take photo.
