Help! Won't turn on
"If the digital camera will not turn on, run through the "Checklist" given below.
If this does not solve the problem, take the camera, the batteries, and the AC Power Adapter to an authorized FUJIFILM service center for testing and repairs.
1. The direction of your battery might be wrong. Confirm it and put it again.
2. Load new or fully charged batteries.
3. The battery terminals may be dirty in a way that cannot be seen (fingerprints, etc.). Wipe the terminals clean with a soft cloth.
4. Press the Power button again firmly."
Cleaning the battery contacts sounds worth a try.
Fuji also say;
"Please use only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries with Fujifilm digital cameras
Please note that instruction manuals provided with Fujifilm digital cameras recommend that only alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are used with those digital cameras which require AA or AAA type batteries. If other types of batteries are used together with an AC adaptor, this may result in the rare occurrence of the battery overheating. Please do not use batteries other than those recommended in our instruction manuals."
Check that the type of battery is correct
Did you buy the camera new? is it still under warranty?
Here is the link to the support page for the s7000 including manuals, repair centre details etc;
or direct to the manual;
Apart from contacting Fuji for service, the only suggestion I could find in the manual was that the battery cover may not be closing fully. Worth checking.
Hope this helps :)
