    camera went dead right after use - shut it off went to turn it a few minutes later - it was dead.

    tried new batteries, a power adapter - nada

    will look at memory flap again

    I have noticed that the camera goes through batteries faster than it used to, but now even with new batteries in, the low battery light comes on and it automatically shuts off. I can't even take one shot. Help!

  • badcameraman Dec 27, 2007

    Tried to turn on one time and noticed the power light flick off as soon as it came on and repeated to the same avail. New batteries and same problem. It wont turn and stay on. Memory flap door is fine to.

    My camera started shutting off out of no where. Had nothng to do with the power save feature. Then started going through fully charged batteries too fast. Then sometimes would turn on, other times would not. May get 1 picture, maybe not. Tried new batteries before and problem was solved temporarily. Now, I cannot even get camera to turn on. It gave up on me completely. Tried new batteries. Was this camera a waste or do I still have hope????? The card slot is fine. The flash will not close, but when I held closed, still camera would not go on. I cannot afford a new one!

    I am having the same problem!!  It used to work wonderfully, now fresh batteries, even fully charged ones don't work!  Maybe 1 pic, if I am lucky.  The troubleshoot in the manual says to check the battery terminals and clean them, but with what??  I am very disappointed.  I miss my old regular 35mm.  Plus it takes 5 second delayed shots.  I don't get the shot right as I take them.  Forget action shots...

    My camera worked fine on Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon, it wouldn't come on at all. The only thing that did happen, was the red light on the front flashes once when I turn it to the picture view setting. I recharged my batteries and nothing. I cleaned the battery terminals...nothing. I've had the camera for a couple of years now and it seemed to work awesome....until 3 days ago. :(

  • 3baseman Dec 25, 2008

    Yup, exact same problem. The batteries are good and I cleaned the ends with an eraser, checked the memory door, removed and reinserted the memory card, and tried a 4.5V DC plug-in adapter (with the correct polarity). The green light sometimes comes on and sometimes I can switch to the LCD screen, but as soon as I hit the button to take a picture the camera goes dead.

Mine had with this problem....After checking everything I found some corrosion in the battery compartment so I cleaned the contacts at the bottom of the compartment and put a new set of batteries in...The camera started working again....DON'T leave batteries in if you are not using the camera >>>

Check the memory flap door - the on the eop their is a small prog which tells the camera that the memory door is closed its probably brokne like mine and then it will not turn on. Andrew

Why won't my Fujifilm Finepix S7000 turn on, even after I put new batteries in?


Verify batteries are fresh and of correct type, batteries and terminals are clean. If a rechargeable, verify battery and charger are good. Otherwise, camera may need servicing.

My nikon S3000 has been giving me many problems ever since I bought it. My latest problem is when I turn it on one day, it indicates that 'battery exhasted', but I had fully charged it previously. And...


Rechargeable batteries don't last forever and the ones supplied with the camera are not of very good quality. Try new batteries and also consider getting another recharger as the Nikon supplied one is very basic and does not take good care of the batteries it's used with.

Fujifilm S3000 zoom error camera will not take pictures


Unfortunately it sounds like the zoom is broken in the camera. I suggest that you try to vacuum around the lens and see if that dislodges any debris. Also fully charge the batteries or use fresh ones before attempting to operate the zoom mechanism. If this does not work for you then you will have to ship or take into an authorized service center. The local center in New York is Photo Tech; www.phototech.com.

Fuji s3 does not turn on...


You have done the right thing, so far. That which I would first have suggested. Congratulations! You would be surprised how many persons ignore the need for fresh batteries.

Yes, the camera should now be reset, and if that fails, service is required to make certain of your investment.

However, the battery must first be determined to be an actual Fuji battery, and if not, this is not your fault.

Please read the following:

Recommendation for Use of Genuine Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery Pack for FUJIFILM Digital Cameras Thank you for using Fujifilm Products.
It has been our policy to recommend that the genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery pack be used for Fujifilm digital cameras that use a battery pack.
However, it has been confirmed that there are certain counterfeit battery packs available in the market that look very similar to a genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery pack.
Some of these may not comply with safety standards, they may cause serious problems, such as overheating, leaking, bursting, or fire.
For your safety, we would like to remind you to only use genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery packs for Fujifilm digital cameras.
Please note that Fujifilm will not accept responsibility for any camera problems, accidents, and damage of any nature that may occur due to use of non-genuine Fujifilm battery packs.
We appreciate your kind understanding and cooperation in this regard.

Battery life


Try buying very high quality recharable batteries. You might have low quality batteries and the camera eats the battery up quickly.
