I recently acquired a Fujifilm FinePix F460. I purchased a new battery, charged the battery with an external charger, and installed it in the camera. When I press the "power" button, the green status light turns on but the LCD screen does nothing--it does not light up at all. When connected to my computer via the USB cable, there is no response. The green light remains on for a couple minutes, then shuts off. Why does the camera not power up fully?

Re: Fuji F460 no power
Mainboard component failure at a guess or the new battery is not up to scratch- try taking the battery back for a new one as it is a recent purchase.
If you can do that and still in trouble contact Fiji for a reapair estimate.

As in the first part of the manual is explained, when you have inserted the battery correct and you then plug in the charger, the charger light should go on. When the light is out, the battery is charged. When the light blinks, your battery is fault.
When the light does not go on, when you plug it in a power outlet, the battery is not inserted correct, or the contacts are dirty.
If you want to clean the contacts, please only use a dry cloth. Never us a sharp tool. It would damage the contacts bend repair.
Even when you plug in the charger, with a fully loaded battery, the light should go on for only a few moments.
Make sure the power outlet works normally. and the power cable is not defect.
Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.
Your Camera using rechargeable battery Li-on 3.7 Volt .
Your computer voltage output of USB port is 5 Volt.
So I'm not recommend you to do modification to get your battery charged.
Instead, you can the charger on line at this web :
The price is about $20.
hmm i have the same problem with mine.i got a replacement battery and it worked fine for a few days but then went back to the way it was. so i'm thinking the problem is with the camera itself. how long have you had the camera for?
I have a brand new fuji finepix 1000fd and was having the same problem (tried two different cards). I contacted Fuji service and they said only Sandisk and Fujifilm SD cards are guaranteed to work. I bought a Sandisk Ultra II 2 GB card ($20 at Office Depot) and after 20 pictures I haven't had an error.... yet.
