Question about Fuji FinePix S9000 Zoom Digital Camera
Possible solutions are:
card or battery door tabs for cut out switches are broken or the micro switches are damaged.
Blown fuses on the board. There are several fuses on the main board and power board and to determine which one has blown you can connect an ac adapter to see if your camera will power up via mains. If it does then the fuse for the battery has blown. If neither will power up your camera then the main board fuse will have blown. To check the fuses you will need a service manual, not an owners manual, for the locations and correct types of fuses.

Ya, my s9000 fuji had no startup by the switch
or with the ac adapter plugged in too.
I got the service manual and took my camera apart and replaced the motherboard battery. that worked!!
The service manual schematics show some
so called 'fuses' on one of the 2
boards in this camera.
its of course on the board thats buried the deepest
and underneath everything...
but i never took it down that far to get to them. I think they are hardboarded anyway from what I could tell by peeking in when I got that far.
But you can easily see the coin battery on the first mb you tear down to.
I decided to just do the battery and see what happens.
Technically a battery acts like a fuse too...
maybe its all just jargon about 'the fuses'.
I did take that first mb out all the way, and its alittle bit of a surgery to accomplish this because of some extremely small plugs and wires. The ribbon cables are not too bad, but you could damage them if your not really careful. unclip them by folding up their holder flap.
It doesnt look like they do, but thats what it does.
Dont just rip them out.
But actually 2 ribbons before you get to these you do just pull out.
The battery was spot welded into the holder too. Looked like the Predator's shoulder cannon did it with his laser triangle sight. lol
Both sides even.. Its a very good example of a pre assembly factory method.
I used an xacto blade to pop the welds from the battery.
I fiqured out why this was like this too.
The battery needs to stay very secure for camera wrangling. :)
After the battery is popped out the holder, its not ever going to let
a new battery stay put. The holder is not designed for that.
So you need to solder the top (-) of the holder to the battery.
Theres just enough grab to get this done.
Tin the top of the holder first with solder near its edge.
I scratched up the surface a bit with my exacto so I could tin it.
Then slid the battery in, and soldered the edge to the battery.
Its not going to fall out now!
For everybody who loves their Fuji camera too I would like to tell you the camera battery # is 321..its a silver oxide Maxwell battery...it was alot of work to find this out because the original had no info.
it wasnt a Maxwell for sure...I had to fiqure out the circuitry voltage to make sure I was going to put the right battery in.
it's size > 6.8mm dia x 1.6m height
1.55 volt 15 mAh
I got mine at batteryBob.com.
Actually he sent me 5 free ones too. cool deal there!
I hope this helps someone down the line, because I sure have appreciated other things folks have posted on all kinds of other searches I have had to do
and have gotten help.
As for taking the Fuji S9000 camera apart and doing this I would only recommend it if you are patient and have some nimble mechanical fingers.
I would rate the difficulty an 8 out of 10, which means better have the right tools and definitely a white table that wont lose screws if they go bouncing.
The service manual pics were great. email me at scg at sti dot net if you need more help or info. I was soooo glad my camera friend Mr Fuji came back to life after this. I hope everyone else can keep up running too.
keep those pics snappin' !!
