The 4100 is a camera, not a battery charger. Connecting the camera to a computer's USB port is only going to drain the batteries faster, since the camera has to use juice to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).
If you're using an EN-MH1 rechargeable battery pack, you must charge it using a separate MH-71 battery charger. If you're using rechargeable AA batteries, you must charge them using an appropriate battery charger.
Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.
Greetings - You're absolutely right - Your camera should work with any rechargeable or alkaline AA batteries.
Have you tried using a second set of batteries besides the first and are they new batteries or batteries that have been lying around in a drawer?
If they're new you might want to try an old trick that might help and get a regular pencil with an eraser and use the eraser to clean the contacts on both ends of the battery compartment. When you're done make sure you blow out any bits of eraser that might have crumbled off.
If the batteries are new and the contacts are clean your camera has some kind of problem and I suggest you visit Fuji Films tech support website HERE.
Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.
Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.
If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or
Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.
I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.
Hello. I'm not sure if your start up problem is related but even though AA batteries fit this camera it actually needs the Kodak Klick-8000 rechargeable battery. I recently bought a new aftermarket battery and charger on Ebay for about $10.00 US from China. It solved my battery problem.
Remove the batterty andclean the internal battery contact with an eraser on the end of a pencil- take a flash light to look inside the compartment to enfure they are bright and clean. Make sure the battery door and contact srip are a good tight fit Hold the door down with a finger whilst switching on Other than that there is little moreyou can do
Mine had the same problem. I consulted http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/ and it said to use rechargeable batteries only. The entry claimed that alkaline batteries, even if they're brand new, don't have sufficient power for more than a few pictures and may not even be powerful enough to turn the camera on. I was dubious, but I tried putting in a pair of fully charged rechargeables and, by Gum, the camera was suddenly working again. So before junking the camera, try investing 20 bucks in a battery charger and a pair of AA rechargeables and see if that fixes it.
