If you think this has to do with the battery power, you also should check the contacts in the battery compartment. If the are not shiny, you can try to clean them with a dry cloth or a cotton swap. Don't use sharp tools in or close by a camera.
Make sure the battery is inserted correct and the battery cover should be locked correct.
If the camera was not used for a long time, perhaps some contacts are oxidised. Those contacts you can switch, try to switch them several times. Open and close the battery door several times. Press the on of button several times. Put the battery in and remove it several times. And hope the contacts will work again.
Are you shooting in manual exposure "M"ode? If so, are you trained on adjusting your exposure so that you are getting the correct exposure? Sorry, that's pretty basic, but I need to ask. If you don't know about manual mode, put the camera in "A"perture Priority and try it.
Next, try a different lens. The one you're using may be faulty and the blades failing to open intermittently.
Finally, could be that the camera is faulty and requires Nikon Service to test it out.
Are you sure the battery is correctly charged? Most USB connectors on most PC's don't deliver enough power to charge the battery. Try to charge the battery with the power cord till the green LED is on. If you'r sure the battery is fully charged and the same happens again, remove the battery for a small time and put it in again.
When the camera turns on, and then turns off again it usually means that the batteries are too low to power the unit correctly. Replace your batteries and try turning it on again. This model camera uses a lot of power and drains batteries pretty easily. Rechargeables sometimes do not hold enough to power it correctly for very long.
If you replace the batteries and still have the same problem, try contacting Fuji direct for repair options. Without seeing the camera to troubleshoot it or have the ability to ask you questions and have you try troubleshooting actions based on those answers - there really isn't much else I can do for you.
Many digital cameras have a 2nd disposable battery to remember settings like date and time, and where to put the pictures, when the rechargeable battery is removed,, but I don't believe that is the case with your camera.
possibly you are not actually getting the time set correctly, since
the camera will continue to ask for time & date setting every time the camera starts, if it is not set properly when it asks. Concerning internal memory- Can you transfer the images from internal memory to the memory sick when you do insert it, or is there a chance that the memory stick is defective, and therefore the camera doesn't record to it?
The date/time battery is "built in" (not replaceable) to this model according to page 13 in the manual (available here). It is supposed to recharge when you have the regular battery installed, but if you leave the regular battery out for more than "approximately three weeks", the internal battery may go flat.
I'm not sure this has anything to do with the memory card issue, though. Check the battery problem by inserting a freshly charged battery, turning on the camera and setting the correct date and time, then turning off the camera and waiting an hour or so (with the main battery still in the camera). Turn the camera back on, and if the date and time have to be reset again, your internal battery may be bad, and the camera would need to be serviced.
