Re: fuji finepix f401

I had a similar issue, and also bought a new NP60 battery, to no avail. Then I dismantled the cradle, and found a fuse on the circuit board (F01 label) which showed open. I soldered a bit of 5amp fuse wire across the top of it, and everything came back to life.
DISCLAIMER - 5amp wire was the smallest I could find. I don't know what it's meant to be. I also don't know why the original fuse blew, which means that my camera probably has another fault somewhere. However, It's been working fine for over 3 months since then.

Fujifilm battery fully charged but camera says no charge or very little. Just bought a new Duracell Battery and Charger for my Fuji FinePix J10 Camera. Used the charge on the battery in the camera from...

Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.

Battery or the camera cradel

Parts or a new cradle are hard to find. I don't think Fuji makes them any more, although, depending on where you live, that country's distribution source may still have stock. What we sell our customers is a small charger which recharges the battery outside of the camera. They are about $10 US and plug into the USB port on any computer.

Cannot recharge camera

I didn't really solve the "problem". I plugged the charger into a different electrical outlet and PRESTO, the camera began to charge. The outlet I had been using, malfunctioned and had to be replaced.
Easy solution this time.

Camera won't turn on.

Mine had the same problem.  I consulted and it said to use rechargeable batteries only.  The entry claimed that alkaline batteries, even if they're brand new, don't have sufficient power for more than a few pictures and may not even be powerful enough to turn the camera on.  I was dubious, but I tried putting in a pair of fully charged rechargeables and, by Gum, the camera was suddenly working again.  So before junking the camera, try investing 20 bucks in a battery charger and a pair of AA rechargeables and see if that fixes it.

Rechargeable Battery won't charge

I think this is a general Fuji design fault in the camera circuitry. I have an older F455 which has exactly the same problem and I did the same - bought new batteries only to discover that didn't help. The only solution is to spend even more money for a stand alone battery charger.

NEW Batts but keep getting low batt indicator and....

Sorry, no solution. Same problem here. I am very unhappy because initially it took great pictures. The first one I tried only worked a couple of days and I returned to store and they replaced. Second worked a couple of months and now immediately draws down power and won't work on new batteries. I was told to use NH-10 batteries (rechargeable). I did this from the beginning. Still won't hold charge.
