Always charge batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices.
These batteries are only to be used in flash lights.

In the Kodak cameras of that vintage the original 3V rechargeable battery was made of 2 regular AA rechargeable batteries and a special piece of plastic that pushes some microswitch in the battery compartment. If this piece of plastic is missing, the dock would not charge the batteries. You either need the special CRV3 battery or to charge the normal AA rechargeables with a separate charger.

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 kind of AA batteries do i need to use for my Nikkon N80 with converter box. Can I use the regular alkaline batteries or do I have to use Iithium batteries.?


If you are referencing the added grip, MB-16, you may use rechargeable AA batteries, or other regular AA batteries. My preference is rechargeable.

I had the same problem until I used digital camera batteries. They are more expensive and (in my opinion) don't last as long as they say they will but they are better for this camera than regular AA batteries. Good luck.

Batteries...


Hey Fish stix,
AA batteries all have the same output no matter what type they are so AA lithium rechargeable batteries should work fine in your camera, and probably better. I hope this helps!

I have a ViviCam 8400 and have the same problem UNLESS I buy Duracell Power Pix or Energizer Titanium batteries. These cost more than the regular grade AA batteries, but when I used brand new regular batteries, the camera would turn on for 2 seconds then turn right off. Titanium or Power Pix batteries make the camera work fine. And, because they are made for digital media, they do allow you to use the camera for longer periods of time.

Camera shuts off by itself


Are you certain the batteries are good and fully charged. They do wear out eventually. Hopefully it's not a jammed lens causing the problem. Does the display come up with an error number or maybe even "lens error" before switching off? If it does it will mean a trip to the camera doctor. How far are you actually getting with the switch on? Try switching to view picture instead of the shoot mode. This consumes less power and if you can see the last picture you took on the LCD or even a flash of it before closedown I'd put my money on bad batteries. Make sure the battery ends are clean and the camera battery contacts aren't corroded or dirty. It's sometimes amazing how trouble a little dirt can cause. BMW
