Question about Fuji FinePix S9000 Zoom Digital Camera

Fuji Finepix S9500 - Rapid battery discharge

Basically, the camera shows the low battery life indicator after around five to ten shots, even though the batteries are brand new. I've tried out multiple different types of batteries and the end result was always the same, if it did not, in fact, worsen in time. For a while it let me shoot one to two photos before it showed the indicator again, and went dead. All it required was a restart though, and I could rinse and repeat. Eventually it just started showing it as I turn it on. Interesting, however, is that it works just fine when I want to review pictures already taken, and I can do it for as long as I want without a glitch.
The problem started when I was taking pictures at a fossil display in a rather dark hall, without a flash though. I tried setting various settings such as ISO, shutter speed and aperture and others to various settings to see if it would help, all to no avail.
I'm rather new to photography so I've absolutely no idea as to what may be causing this, or if it's a hardware or software related issue, so I'm asking if anyone has any idea as to why this keeps occurring?

I had exactly the same problem with mine. It aint the batteries at all. What you propably have is a virus on your memory card (propably the boha virus). reformatting the memory card should do the trick. Very important is to get the source of the virus. If its on your camera it will propably be on your pc as well. Most antivirus software cant delete it, as it "respawns" automatically. the best way so far is to restart pc in safe mode(by keeping f8 in while pc starts( u have to be in safe mode to do this). then open any folder,, and go to "tools" ... "folder options" Click on 'view" and "tick" "show hidden files and folders".
Then go to your C: drive and look at the files inside there. if u see "hidden folders" there with names like boha or vidi etc your pc is infected. delete all the hidden folders except "recycler; MSOCache and System volume information" ( i can remember the exact names but the virus files should be something like "vidi" "boh" or "boha" and "iagjh" or something like that).
Reboot pc afterwards and everything should be fine.

Batteries drain very quickly


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Is there a repair for command dial on a fuji s9500


Yes. contact Fuji and it cost about £14.00, its a doddle to fit.
When you recieve it you'll work out how to remove the broken part because you'll understand how it locates, basically a small Pozi screwdriver and a sharp knife to lever the top off.

Our camera (S9500) has mysteriously stopped allowing us to use any of the manual functions in manual mode. The light meter is only working on auto exposure setting.

Canon a590 always low battery with new battey


Don't use regular alkaline batteries (even though you can...) It's a pain to splurge for the more expensive lithium or photo-specific batteries, but they do last. I take A LOT of pictures with my A590, and can usually get several hundred shots out of a set of good batteries. Try Energizer's web site for a coupon, sometimes they have them available.
