There is no hardware reset on this model. We have many situation on different make digital cameras that uses AA batteries that would not turn on with some other AA batteries due to Amp requirement on the batteries. Which means that some circuit design would work only with rechargable batteries because they have more power due to higher Amp power. So I would try rechargable batteries for the last resort. -James

When i was using the rechargeable batteries my camera worked fine but i lost them so i reverted to use duracell aa batteries and now my camera only turns on for me to see all the pictures stored on it.. i...


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.

Good Luck,

What batteries do I use for fujifilm finepix a605 digital camera


Your camera takes two AA sized batteries. You can use either disposable alkaline cells (like Duracell) but the battery life will be short, or can use rechargeable NiMH cells (recommended). Absolutely do not use NiCad or Lithium rechargeables in your camera, and you also mustn't use manganese cells (sometimes called lithium manganese).

Fuji FinePix S9000 battery change clears date/time.


Hi

I started having a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix F10 after about 3 1/2 years of problem-free use. Another poster had some really helpful advice which I thought I'd pass on. It seems there is an internal battery or capacitor which basically fails after a while, meaning date/time settings etc are lost when the battery is removed. (Some people claim this is a motherboard/chip problem instead - seems to be contentious!) So the camera is faulty, but the problem can be worked around.

The advice I found, which worked for my camera, was this:

- Turn off camera and leave off for approx 15 seconds before opening battery door.
- Change battery quickly (within a few seconds).
- Close battery door and leave camera off for approx 15 secs before turning back on.

This retained all settings when I tested it multiple times. I imagine it might not work if changing over a totally dead battery though.

Hope it helps!

FUji FinePix s1000fd, camera will not power on with new batteries, when it powers on it goes off in a few seconds or minutes indicating battery low, i have used fully charged batteries, ordinary batteries...


I have same problem as edmoze mentions above - batteries went dead. I first tried to use regular Duracell AA and it would still not come on. Went to internet & it recommended getting the Duracell rechargeable NiMh which I did. Got the charger & last nite they charged overnight. Today the camera did come on & I was able to download what I had taken. But what concerns me is that the low battery light is still flashing after a night of charging. What's up? Should I expect this kind of battery problem to continue? Seriously considering getting a Nikon Coolpix.

Fujifilm Finepix a825 Digital Camera Battery Life issue


2 long shots as I don't know anything about the a825
Some cameras have a setting in their menu that allows you to choose between alkaline or NiMh (rechargable). If the setting is wrongly set to alkaline when using rechargable it is unlikely to recognise that the batteries are charged and would report low battery. Check your manual to see if their is a select battery setting and check whether it is set correctly.
Occasionally errors on digital cameras can be corrected by removing the memory card and batteries, leaving for 2-3 days and then putting back in the batteries, turning on, turning off, putting the memory card back in and turning back on.

Very slow


Hi, you have a few options. In fuji finepix model cameras they have a setting for continuous mode that may help shoot faster.  when you press the menu button it should be under resolution. 
2nd try a higher speed memory card. Some SD and Xd manufacturers make higher speed cards that can write and dump info faster than normal. 
3rd - make sure batteries are fresh if they are rechargeable, and may need replacing if they are fully charged.  Or if they use AA style try the higher capacity styles available for a premium from energizer and duracell. 
if none of these work, the digital converter (CCD) 3.4 in your case, inside your camera is much like a processor in a computer. The higher the model the faster the speed. The first digital camera I bought, cost $200 and took 5 seconds to even turn on, let alone between pictures.  Try a new one at a store to compare, or the finepix Z series is a great camera at an affordable price if you want to upgrade!
Don't forget to rate me, or reply if you need more help! Thanks, NGK

EEE Error


3 reasons u get an "err" msg are

1. lens aperature not at smallest stop (f22 for example) turn aperture ring to smallest aperture setting or largest number

2. No memory card, or card not formatted or the magnetic latch of the memory card is sensitive try closing it firmly , or try changing memory card may it is damaged by force pullout.

3. weak batteries (4- AA and 2- CR123)try changing them.

4. Try changing or taking out lenses.

i hope something work out for u lemme know
