Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery Drain I have a constant 70ma drain from thebatteries when turned off. I insert the plug into the external 5vdc to disconect the batteries from the camera and this splves the problem. I now find that the time and date have to be entered or just press OK for the camera to operate. Is there a second internal battery for the clock alone. Thank you Richard

Have a look:

I suggest using XD cards. Depending on the age of your camera there may be a factory fix available to improve this issue, you'll have to contact the Fuji repair center.

The manual states there is some small constant drain by design but 70mA seems high. There is no internal battery to retain the date, but with 2+ hours of the batteries inserted (or power supply attached) it is supposed to retain data/time for up to 24 hours (internal capacitance holds it). If you have a CF draining that will probably use all of the stored energy up though causing the date/time to be lost. Try it with the CF pulled out if that is the memory you are using.

Plugging in the adapter will cause a power-interrupt according to the manual. Be sure the camera is off when plugging or removign the supply.

FWIW I have switched to Duracell pre-charged NiMH hybrid cells in my S7000 and the "shelf-life" is much better than typical NiMH, took hundreds of test shots and views over a period of a week and there was still plenty of life in the cells. (They are rebranded Sanyo "enerloop" cells, google them up for more info).

Battery won't stay charged

1. the car drain's the battery even when it is not started or the key isn't in ignicion, the car has a electrical problem, you left a light, the starter could drain it, the alternator as well, or a bad radio is draining the battery even with no key in the ignicion,
2 it's a bad battery (discharges it self by beeing counicated inside).

solucion 1. to see if the car is drainin the battery would be by disconecting a battery termina and see if discharges again, if not, then the car drain's the battery.

solucion 2. if the battery discharges even when if it's disconected from the car, then change the battery.

warning, the first cause coul'd induce to a self discharging battery. even if you changed the battery, do a litle monitoring to be sure it's not the car that is turning the battery bad. how? if you install a new battery, leave the car for a few days (i mean do not start the car) and see if the battery discharges, if so, then you have to search what is draining the battery (that could be a very costly work, time and money and complicated). or put a ''battery disconector'' so the car cannot discharge the battery.

My 1990 Ford Taurus has a battery drain problem. I'm not sure what is draining it but I just bought a new alt. and new battery and the next day the new battery was dead and I had to jump it. Could it be...

I fixed the same problem in my 1990 Ford Taurus, it turned out to be the external voltage regulator.
I determine that my external voltage regulator had failed by testing the charging voltage across the battery while the car was idling. It should be a maximum of 15V for most batteries; mine was at 17.8V which means the voltage regulator was not regulating the voltage sent to the battery. Also when the car was parked it pulled a constant 3.0 amps (which drained my battery overnight). I was able to test for the amperage draw by just disconnecting the voltage regulator and hooking up my multimeter in series with the battery, the draw was gone.
I replaced the voltage regulator, which is a very easy fix, and I was good to go again. :)
Hope this helps someone too.

Battery draining when engine is switched off

The negative terminal is the earth
The larger cable is for the engine earth so the starter will work, the smaller one is the body earth, The car needs both for the electrics to work, If you disconnect the small cable the electrics may earth back through somthing else like the throttle cable and this will not stop the battery drain

Make sure everything is turned, lights, etc. If they are.. something must be shorting. you have to start a the battery and trace the wires until you find where it is coming from. Im' sure you have a mult-meter of some sort if you know its a constant 3 volts.

I have VW Polo 1.4 (1999). The car was running fine, until I park my car at the home, it tend to drain battery overnight and has to recharge in the morning before I get to work. I used DC current meter...

Try to check the battery maybe your battery is over use or you need to replace the battery or check your alternator and check the fuse of the car.
