Fuji f-401 not recharging.

I brought a new battery thinking the old 1 had had it. Wrong! whether the camera is on cradle or directly pluged into mains the battery will not recharge. Checked to c if it was cradle or the plug, turns out to be neither. When I brought new battery camera did work now I should imagine battery has run down due to not getting charge. Any idea what might be wrong & if worth repairing.

Re: Fuji f-401 not recharging.

There is only two possibility why the battery didn't charge.
1) cradle ( socket at camera side ) faulty.
2) the power adaptor faulty ( no dc voltage,can use volt meter to confirm ).

it worth repairing .Thks

My camera will only turn on to take photos when its chargin.... if its not charging it wont turn on and its only 1 month old

There are a lot of Fuji digital cameras if "we" knew what model it was you would possible get more then just a guess. My guess is that the batteries (if it uses AA's) are either Alkaline type and dead on power OR if they are rechargeable they are not installed properly all it takes is one battery to be put in the wrong way and nothing works. The charger on some models can bypass the battery circuit to operate entirely on AC power and charge batteries at the same time. Check your batteries if they are Alkaline type AA's then you can't recharge them. Check make sure if you have rechargeable type that they are in correctly.

My Fuji Finepix S5800 tells me my brand new batteries are flat.

It sounds like you have bad batteries. I have had rechargeables that have suddenly done the same thing. I have learned that buying really cheap ones doesn't work out. If you buy a good branded set, I think you will find that they are much better. :)

I just replaced the batteries in my camera and the camera will not turn on. finepix s8100fd

(Nice camera :)

Typically, if the camera worked before the batteries were replaced, then non-function after battery replacement comes down to two items:

1) the batteries were inserted wrong way (with the wrong positive (+) or negative (-) end up or down. Check the inside of the battery compartment to see a little diagram with the + and - sign. Or else look in camera manual.
Fuji s8100 requires 4 x AA batteries, either Alkaline or Ni-MH rechargeables.
The two outer ones should have positive (+) bump UP, and the two inbetween should have the negative (-) smooth UP.

2) or the batteries are not new enough or not fully charged.

Also, when you replace batteries, never mix Alkaline with Rechargeables, and do not mix Old with New. You must go with either 4 Alkaline, or 4 Rechargeables, and either be new or just recently charged up.
Sometimes dirt may hamper the contact, but not usually.
And do make sure the battery cover latches down snug.

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.

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.

Fuji finepix a330 digital camera says "low battery"

To help rule out if the battery, camera, or even your charger I would suggest to first clean all the contacts. This can be done with some rubbing alchol and a q-tip, make sure you get the contacts in the camera, directly on the battery, and your charger. Wipe off any excess alchol and let it sit for a minute or two so the alchol can evaporate. Give the battery a good charge and see what happens. Where did you purchase that replament battery? If what was under 10bucks I would suspect it's the battery, there are a ton of crap battery's hitting the market, always stick with name brand. Another possibility is that the charger could be sending the wrong voltage to the battery causing inproper charging, or even the chargers power cord could be sending the wrong voltage to the charger. Anyway I'm done rambling, It's 12:15am and I have a 70hour week starting in 6 hours so i'm outta here. Hope this helps. And here's a link to your manual if you need it: L8R Good Luck

Fuji Finepix F410 compact loss of images

I have a blue LED problem too....One day the F401 was in its cradle with lights working all right. Next day they were not working. I tried removing and replacing the battery, I also borrowed a cradle, usb cable and mains adapter - but still no LEDS. However, the images upload to the PC as usual, the self timer works, the camera continues to take perfectly good pictures and, as far as I know, the battery is being charged. Any advice/comment will be appreciated if it helps to overcome this problem.

Incidentally, this latest malfunction is a bit annoying since the camera has already had a major CCD fault. I appreciate that digital cameras rely on microelectronics, but it does seem a bit 'throw-away' when you are told by the Fuji technical people that the cost of a possible repair is more than the current worth of the camera.

I have two conventional SLR (Konica TC Autoreflex and a Nikon 601S) both of whcih are working perfectly despite being 27 and 9 years old respectively. So much for progress, eh?!

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.
