Camera says replace batteries even when fresh ones are installed


Have you tried using new batteries? How long have you been using the old batteries? As far as i know, the longer you use a rechargeable batteries, the shorter its life(compared to the first time you used it).

Try using new batteries, if the problem is still there, the camera my have the problem. But if the camera works fine, then your old battery is defective.

Keep me update, hope i helped you. Thanks.

When trying to power up hear 3 beeps and camera turns off.

Make sure the batteries are good and in right. If it keeps doing it you might be having a problem with your lens opening up and staying open, I had a camera that did that to me, and the lens had been knock and wouldnt open properly, check that out. The lens was out of range from normal and would automatically shut down

R707 lens open, lcd shows hp, beeps, then turn OFF

Try to reset the camera - remove the battery and press the reset switch for about 5 seconds. Reinsert the battery. If it works while connected to the charger, your battery needs to be replaced.

Camera not working

Usually when the camera beeps 3 times. It means the battery is low. Then it turns right off. What kind of batteries are you using for your camera?

It won't power on

Batteries are too low. Install new alkaline batteries or better yet metal hydride batteries that have been fully charged first.

Fuji Technical Support team website is the place to ask for further advice. But if the camera is more than a ear old - replacement is the only remedy.
