My dad "inherited" a Fuji Fotonex 265ix zoom APS camera when my sister died. (It looks like the Fuji Nexia to my inexperienced eye). He can do the basics, but some of the symbols are a mystery to him. We have tried to track down a manual but were totally unsuccessful. Any ideas please?

Just look out for APS film, the actual brand doesn't matter as whatever the brand they're all made by the same few companies. Kodak Advantix and Fuji nexia are the most common. Get the 400 version for indoors and dull, overcast days, and 200 for shooting outdoors in bright conditions or indoors with flash.
Although it's effectively a dead format now, you'll still find it widely available online and in larger drugstores and supermarkets. Availability outside of major developed nations is very patchy except in areas which attract international tourists, so if that applies to you then you'll have to order online from a stockist such as Amazon.
APS film is more expensive than traditional 35mm film and produces inferior results as the negatives are smaller. Also, try to avoid buying in a large stock of film as the APS system was very badly designed and engineered, regardless of the camera brand. Most APS cameras are now broken and you shouldn't expect your Nikon Pronea to last long. When it does break it's likely to be the film transport mechanism and that will be the end of it as spares are not available.
The clue is in the name. It uses APS film, but it's a dying format and is increasingly difficult to buy. When you find some buy just one roll until you've checked the camera works: APS cameras were crippled with a dreadful film transport design and it can be difficult to find one which still works. If broken, then just chuck the camera into the recycling bin: it's worthless and parts are not available.
go here http://www.dealtime.com/xPO-Fuji-Nexia-Q1 and it will tell you the battery and film type for this camera, I believe it is 24mm film so the one you got should be fine and the batteries are 1 x 3V Lithium Battery (CR-2)
