    I am having the same problem as many. My camera turns on for maybe half of a second and then immediately turns right back off. I've tried all strengths of batteries...nothing helps! What is going on?!?!

Only use Ni-MH or AA-size alkaline batteries. Do not use Ni-Cd (nickel-cadmium) because the heat emitted can damage the camera.

I would suggest using e2 batteries from Energizer.

In the manual, on page 80 there is a description and procedure for discharging Ni-MH batteries (but NOT regular batteries, so don't do this with regular alkaline batteries) AND do not do this when the external power is connected.

Moving on... The discharging of the batteries procedure should happen when:

  • the batteries last for a short time after being charged normally
  • the batteries have not been used for a long period
  • the batteries are new.
Follow these instructions:
  1. Press the menu/OK button to display the menu on the LCD monitor
  2. Press the "left" or "right" on the pad to select "SET" OPTION and then press "up" or "down" to select "SET-UP".
  3. Press the "MENU/OK" button to dipslay the "SET-UP" screen.
  4. Press "right" or "left" to move to option 5 and then press "up" or "down" to select "DISCHARGE".
  5. Press "right"
  6. Press "left" or "right" to select "OK".
  7. Press the "MENU/OK" button.
The screen changes and discharging begins. When the battery level indicator blinks red and discharging ends, the camera turns off.

Remember to not have the camera external battery plugged in so the battery can discharge on it's own.

Then, at this point, recharge the battery using the external battery charger. This helps to "renew" the battery. This is because Ni-MH batteries will remember the last place where they recharged, and too many times, the memory "bookmark" gets marked to low and has to be reset, done by the recharge.

It may be necessary to repeat these steps multiple times. This effect is not because the batteries are deffective. This is a normal side-effect of Ni-MH. This is the reason the camera comes with a discharge feature.

I the batteries are old and don't function even after performing the discharge procedure as part of the normal operation of the camera (like of the year or two), then the batteries may have reached the end of their service life.

Hope this helps, if so, please rate FixYa! ThankYa!

    Can you please describe why this is inappropriate. If your batteries (which you failed to divulge their type) aren't Ni-MH. Then this wouldn't apply. "Thanks for trying, maybe".

    Unless you provide more details. Battery types, then you will need to have it serviced, or return it to where you purchased for an exchange. These cameras have been having these problems.

    First, a security switch doesn't exist. Please expand your question and give more detail.

    Here is the manual.

    Second, you know you did ask about the batteries and the power turning on. That's why the other person said they had the same problem.

    Please right to FixYa! support and ask them to change the rating if you can't do it on the page.

My camera wont turn on

Yep you need to get an AC adapter. Can get a multiple voltage one at electronics store cheaply enough. Cheaper than getting an actual Fuji one that is for sure..
Then try to download the firmware for it from Fuji and that should do the trick... If not like you said time to get a new one.
Good luck.
