Re: Fuji S3500 Finepix just stopped working

If you have had it less than a year or even a little over- Fuji may come up with a modestly priced or even FREE replacement,if over and , before you send it to a repairer or contact the Fuji Tech Support team try one more thing. Take the batteries out and with the end of pencil, eraser - give the contacts at bottom the battery chamber a polish. Now take a look at the lid of the chamber if it has a continuous piece of metal inside so as to cover the battery ends put a piece of foil across them if two batteries ,or arrange 2 pieces of foil to replicate the correct alignment if 4 batteries Then close the lid . See what happens - it may simply be a battery contact thing.

Why Fuji Finepix XP20 won't take photos?

Check the settings of the camera. Put the recording mode for stills (photos) to auto, so the setting can't stop the camera from taking a picture. If you are in one of the manual modes, and the system calculates it won't be possible to make a picture (to dark, to light, or out of focus and so on) it won't react when you press the shutter release button.
Please use the manual, so you will be able to solve this every time it happens to you. The manual is still online.

Fuji S3500 won't turn on

Are they installed the right way? Also if you mixed old and new batteries, you need to use brand new ones.  Another thing check to see if the batter contacts have any battery acid on them as this will prevent the batteries from working, if this is the case, clean them with REGULAR Coca cola or a generous amount of baking soda and HOT!!!! Water.

Try taking it apart, and letting the pieces dry oput, or take it to a reputable camera shop, and see if the can replace one of the boards that might have short circuited, otherwise it looks like you need a new camera :( Sorry.

Check your manual- Some models have a separate 'button' battery for date/time functions- there are quite long lived and are on all the time. If the manual does not reveal - seek out the Technical Support at Fuji

Digital camera

Hi, I always take the memory card out of my camera and use a card reader via the USB port. This way I am not dependent on the camera having sufficient battery power or having to connect to an AC adaptor.

Fuji S3500 won't turn on

Acording to the manual, if a camera is stored for a period of time, you need to insert new batteries and leave the camera for an hour or so. I had the same problem, and after an hour the camera worked. AH
