Question about Fuji FinePix F401 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Battery charging The battery will no longer charge (no blue lights on front) either in cradle or direct with cable BUT I have tried my Dad's battery - exactly same camera and that won't charge in my camera either but will in his. This therefore looks like it's the camera and not the battery?! Any advice appreciated Gary

Re: Battery charging

Before we assume that it could be the camera! ever tried using other chargers? check the specifications (output voltage and current) of your charger! try comparing it to your Dad's charger! if they match, it would be safe for you to use it on yours! try cleaning also your camera's charger input plug!

Battery in cradle don't charge

Two reasons. Either the battery is dead or the cradel's charging circuit is faulty. But the red light shows that the cradle is fine. SO, the axe falls on the battery.

Casio Exilim works on cradle, wont turn on when off cradle

I would guess that the battery is not being charged. The problem could be poor connections between the charger & Camera or between camera and battery; or the battery no longer will take a charge.
First, clean the connections with the eraser end of a pencil. Clean the connections on the Charger and on the camer; clean the battery connections and in the camera, Charge overnight. If this does not get the camera working, borrow a battery and see if this works.

My battery wont charge.

Hi I am Vortah The red light is usually an indicator that the battery is charged however in this instance as you are saying it isn't the battery has possibly gone short and you will need to replace the batteries . They have a type of internal memory and only charge a certain amount of times before they no longer accept charge and merely overheat during charging .. But I have to say it may be possible the charger is faulty as if the internal rectifier that charges the battery has gone short that may also bring the red light on in some chargers .. so try the battery or as I would do take it along to your nearest dealers and get them to check it . it may save you money in the long run you could be buying a battery you still cant use when you actually need a charger .. Hope this helps regards Vortash

Samsung NV10 Charging problem

I had the same problem while charging the camera with the cradle. I tried charging directly with the camera and it looks good. Problem seems to come from the cradle itself. Phil

(1) When charging by connecting the AC adaptor directly to the camera Pleasedisconnect DC IN from the camera after charging is completed. Also, itis recommended to remove the battery from the camera when charging iscompleted as the battery is discharged slightly even if the camera isturned off.
(2) When charging with the supplied USB cradle Ifthe camera is installed in the USB cradle, please leave the power cordconnected to the outlet (when using the power strip, please leave itsswitch to on).If you want to unplug the power cord (or switch off thepower strip) after the battery has been charged using the USB cradle,please remove the camera from the USB cradle. Also, it is recommendedto remove the battery from the camera when charging is completed as thebattery is discharged slightly even if the camera is turned off.
NOTE: When you charge the battery by connecting the AC adaptor directly tothe camera or using the USB cradle, do not leave it with the power corddisconnected from the outlet.

Should it not work, continue with the manual reset procedure below:

Battery Charge error

Hey Lak_69,
One problem I know of is the battery for your camera should be model NP-20 not model NP-40. The NP-20 has 650mAh. I would exchange your new battery for the correct model battery, and see if this works. If this doesn't work I would try cleaning the battery terminals in the camera, and if that doesn't work go ahead and try a new charger.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)
