Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helps, please post a rating for me. A rating of "Very Helpful" would be appreciated . .

I received this camera a few years ago as a gift. I used the batteries that came with the camera but when they died I put in new alkaline batteries and ever since the camera has been stuck with a message...


you might have cooked it..... fresh alkaline batteries carry a voltage of about 1.7v.
try turning it on/off multiple times to see if it will clear the fault.

Make sure that you use the correct type of batteries some cameras prefer Alkaline or Zinc Carbon both at v1.5 some only can take 3 rechargeable Nickel Cadmium (Nicad) Cells at 1.3V (3x1.5v= 3.9V) or one Lithium Ion at 3.6V

Be careful if you put a 1.3V NiCad Rechargeable in a camera that was designed for 1.5 Alkaline it can damage the camera and you may experience similar problems to that you have now.

Always check that you are using the recommended batteries, this is why most manufactures supply there own Lithium Ion 3.6V rechargeable K type cells to avoid this type of problem.

Battery always going dead use 4 regular lithium batteries


in this camera and most of fuji AA batteries, the batteries keeps draining even with the machine off .
if the camera is not on use REMOVE the battries.
i will recommend regular recghargable batteries with at least 2700 Mah type NiMH.
you can recharge them several times and they will last almost as those lithium batteries on that model. plus they will be cheaper

In camera ,which will be better lithum battery or alkalide battery.and what is the benifits?


Alkaline batteries are available *everywhere* for relatively short money. When they die, you probably won't have to go very far for replacements. A lithium battery usually lasts significantly longer than traditional alkaline batteries.

When a lithium ion type dies - you'll have to find a place to plug a charger in to recharge before using again. Since it's not always easy to find a place to do this - and due to the time it takes to recharge - it's wise to have at least two sets of lithium batteries. One can charge while the other is in use in the camera.

Lastly, at anywhere from $20 to $80 a pop, lithium batteries can be cost prohibitive.

Batttery icon shows low battery even though new batteries are ins


I am not sure if this will address your problem but it is worth trying.

Make sure the record/playback mode switch is not in an intermediate position. Push it firmly all the way up. Also ensure that the mode button is not between clickstops. Then try to operate the camera

If that does not help, try the following. Take all the batteries out, including the lithium battery which keeps the clock going. Also take the SD memory card out. Leave the camera sit overnight.

Obtain new batteries - conventional alkaline AAs and a lithium type CR1220.

Next day, clean all the contacts for the AA batteries with a cotton-bud and contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol. Let dry. Then insert the new lithium battery. Next insert the new AAs and try to turn the camera on.

If it works, insert the SD card. If it does not work then there is probably an internal problem and it should be serviced.

Don't know what this red thing is on the screen


There is an option for changing battery types in the menu. The accs that came with my camera where very good Lithium-Mh type. If replaced with ordinary Alkaline non-rechargable, you have to adjust battery settings, probably also if you got the very expensive Lithium-Ion batterys. The thig is that these three types has different voltages; 1.2, 1.5 and 3.2 (I think) respectivly.
Wrong settings could perhaps cause this your problem.

Types of batteries.


You can use AA disposable batteries (alkaline or lithium) or rechargeable (NiMH or Nicad) batteries. Lithium batteries last much longer, but are generally quite a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries. You should never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries. If you use Nicad batteries, it is recommended that you use a Nicad conditioning charger to extend the life of the batteries. Note: If you use rechargeable batteries, you will need a battery charger. The camera's AC power supply does not recharge batteries.
