Fuji S1 power source

Sir, from the time I purchased this camera, second hand of course, the AA batteries fail to power up. I put new ones, but to no avail. I have to have a cumbersom 12volt battery with a 5volt 2 amp transformer and a lead into the power socket, and it works.Help would be appreciated as the weight of the battery is weighing me down!! Regards Mike McIntosh New Zealand

I bought two of these wonderful cameras cheap, both with the same problem... and the same solution : Replace the watch battery located on the back right hand side near the bottom (under $4 for two.) The camera uses three types of batteries, and if one set isn't charged, it messes the whole thing up. Hope this helps!

Fuji s1, when I power up I get "Err" message on top LCD screen. Batteries are all freshly new.


"Err" message relates to the batteries.
If constantly lit, It's the AA batteries. When flashing, it's the lithium batteries. It can also be the tiny switch in the media door. Try activating it gently with a pointy object to see if the message disappears.

Battery always going dead use 4 regular lithium batteries


in this camera and most of fuji AA batteries, the batteries keeps draining even with the machine off .
if the camera is not on use REMOVE the battries.
i will recommend regular recghargable batteries with at least 2700 Mah type NiMH.
you can recharge them several times and they will last almost as those lithium batteries on that model. plus they will be cheaper

The power will not come on after I replaced the AA batteries. Is there another battery in this cameria?


i had the same problem i found by a professional ,because i thought my camera was broken, that you have to use lithium batteries theyre a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries but do last much longer and are worth it after that the camera works fine.

Fuji FinePix S2 Pro won't turn on


I had a very similar problem a couple of years ago. Found intermittent power from AA source when battery tray was moved slightly while shooting. I ordered a new AA battery tray from Fuji ($50 I think), problem solved, no trouble since. The tray must hold the batteries tightly against the contacts inside the camera. Camera had only shot about 5000 frames when the problem arose. Hope this helps.

Camera turns on for 2 seconds or wont turn on at all.


There is no hardware reset on this model. We have many situation on different make digital cameras that uses AA batteries that would not turn on with some other AA batteries due to Amp requirement on the batteries. Which means that some circuit design would work only with rechargable batteries because they have more power due to higher Amp power. So I would try rechargable batteries for the last resort. -James

Sir my sonyDSC-40 Camera dot't power on. In power butten pressing time only one time bliking green LED.


Turn off the camera, remove the battery pack. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds. Reinsert the the battery pack. Turn on the camera.

Please make sure the Battery is fully charged before performing this steps.

Also try changing the Batteries of the Camera. "AA" NiMH, "AA" Alkaline, "AA"
Nickel-Metal Manganese are the compatible Battries for the Camera. Hope it works!

CF Excessive Power


Nikons and Fujis keep the CF slot powered, and "poll" it every now and then to see if a card has been removed or inserted. So yes, a camera may drain batteries much faster with a CF card than it does with an XD. But if it really does do this, then someone at Fuji deserves to be on the street, looking for a new job. Polling a card every few seconds does not have to be a traumatic experience to the camera. A Nikon can sleep for months, and not show appreciable battery drain. After what I've seen in the horribly slow CF write times of the S3, and the large artificial difference in write times between CF and xD on that camera, I'd say someone (or several "someones") at Fuji is doing everything in their power to make CF look bad and steer people into xD.
