    Have same problem as tomawamba in that my Fuji S3100 doesn't turn on even with tested fresh batteries. Have had no other problems in the several years that I have had the camera. Will try the suggestion given about using aluminum for at the battery contacts.

My camera now works!!! Found a suggestion to clean the battery compartment on opposite side of switch with lighter fluid. Only had pressurized fluid for lighter so used rubbing alcohol instead. Put a few drops of 70% Isopropyl alcohol in chamber and clicked switch several times. Dried with hair dryer. Didn't work, tried again. Didn't work. Then tried a few drops of wd-40, clicked several times, rinsed with alcohol, dried with hair dryer, clicked several times AND IT WORKED. Still works. Thanks everyone(especially codmac) for the ideas.

By mistake I used power cord from DVD player to charge my camera. And camera doesn't work any more. It completely die.


You might have burned it out, I cannot tell I would suggest you take it to a tech locally. The issue with plugging a wrong adaptor in is voltage this will pop the supply inside the camera.
Again from here I cannot see but if it does not turn on yes its damaged.
Thanks and please lay in your ratings.

Fuji finepix e510 won't turn on


If your Fuji e510 battery system is like the Finepix S3000 or the S3100 take a look at the following postings: Finepix S3100 (Camera power does not come on...) by banobo of Feb 07,2008 and check out solutions #2 & #4, (Mine is #4), Also see posting by "tomawamba for Fuji S3000" and my slightly differently worded solution.(Only one posted). May be best to get camera working before connecting with anything else. Good luck, be patient.

are you using rechargable batterys or weak batterys. my fuji won't work unless I use a e^2 titanium batterys. they have lots of jam (3500's?). anyways when the picture or ccd goes to charge there isn't enough juice to fire and the cammera dies. or maybe there is junk on the connections and won't let enough volts through. rechargeables are bad becouse they don't have the volt output needed - 1.2v charged I beleive. the other batterys are expensive but they've been in my cammera for three months, or about 300 pictures.
hope that helps :)

This is an easy possibility, Try using an eraser on all the contacts for the batteries. The ones on the battery door and the ones inside the camera. Try to get them shiny, the harder white erasers work best. If that doesn't solve to power problem, the camera may have blown its power fuse internally. That repair would likely cost 50-60$

NEW Batts but keep getting low batt indicator and....


Sorry, no solution. Same problem here. I am very unhappy because initially it took great pictures. The first one I tried only worked a couple of days and I returned to store and they replaced. Second worked a couple of months and now immediately draws down power and won't work on new batteries. I was told to use NH-10 batteries (rechargeable). I did this from the beginning. Still won't hold charge.

listen you all...if the battery contacts are ok and the battries fully charged then it is a dead power board. make the investment and send it to a repair place unless it is an old junk and not worth repairing
