Question about Fuji FinePix 2800 Zoom Digital Camera

Fuji Finepix 3800

My Fuji 3800 has begun losing the date/time and other stored memory items whenever the battery cover is opened. The camera works fine otherwise. It's about 8 months old and has always retained the time/date when changing batteries. The manual indicates the date/time will remain in memory for hours without external power. It's more of an inconvenience now, but I wonder if this is a common issue with the camera, and if this problem can turn into something more serious. Anybody know if the Fuji 3800 has an internal Lithium battery or ESD capacitor to retain the memory? Thanks Mike The camera shuts off unexpectedly whenever its on shutting or playing. It doesn't happen when connected to the PC. Sometimes it works fine and many photos can be taked and sometimes it keeps shutting of on every turnning on. Thanks

The date time problem ist he internal battery[ A watch type button inside the camera body]
has worn out- replacing it will be a workshop job.
The other problem seems like wear and tear on the switch any repair will be costly.
Just live with[out]it- or buy a new camera

Why do I lose date/time on Fuji FinePix S6500 digital camera when I change batteries

You lose the date/time because the camera has no power to it to keep the settings. Basically don't leave the batteries out if you want it to keep the date/time. On the other hand it will just sit and run the batteries down just sitting there off. It is a bit annoying but that's why. Most cameras store an internal charge so they can keep the date/time but it is not supposed to last very long, it was designed so you could swap out dead batteries without having to reset the time/date every time. If it is happening on simple battery changes it means something may be wrong with the camera.

My Fuji Finepix S5100 camera keeps losing its settings and date and time when the batteries die. Is there a small "watch" type battery that can be replaced so it can keep its memory?

There is no "watch" battery in the camera. Always keep fresh batteries on hand and switch them out quickly. That usually solves the problem.

Hi, Every time I change the batteries now, I lose my time,date etc settings.

I don't have any experience with a fuji but I do believe it has a small internal battery that keeps just enough juice to operate things like date and time. I would take it to your local camera shop they will stear you in the right direction if not make the repair for you.

Flash setting doesn't work

Does your camera gave a small battery in place somewhere that is used to maintain the date and time settings? (it is generally a watch battery type small flat silver disk.) You should not have to reset time and date after each battery change.

Many digital cameras eat up batteries quickly, especially when using the flash alot., that is why it is important to use good quality rechargeables whenever possible.
