Question about Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fuji finepix s3000

My camera will not power on. I have bought brand new batteries and fully charged them. When camera powered off last, lens was open and in zoom. Before I sell for parts, is my camera repairable or is this a total loss. I am devastated as a stay at home mom who bought this camera before I had my son 2 1/2 years ago. I have taken care of it.
If repairable, what are average costs?

Re: fuji finepix s3000

This is an easy possibility, Try using an eraser on all the contacts for the batteries. The ones on the battery door and the ones inside the camera. Try to get them shiny, the harder white erasers work best. If that doesn't solve to power problem, the camera may have blown its power fuse internally. That repair would likely cost 50-60$

My Fuji FinePix A900 camera's batteries are low. I have tried to replace them with new batteries, but the camera will not turn on. It will only turn on with the old batteries in it. What's up with this?...

if you are using rechargable batteries make sure they are fully charged, try more powerful batteries.
clean each end of batteries and the contacts inside the camera for better electrical contact.

Fuji finepix e510 won't turn on

If your Fuji e510 battery system is like the Finepix S3000 or the S3100 take a look at the following postings: Finepix S3100 (Camera power does not come on...) by banobo of Feb 07,2008 and check out solutions #2 & #4, (Mine is #4), Also see posting by "tomawamba for Fuji S3000" and my slightly differently worded solution.(Only one posted). May be best to get camera working before connecting with anything else. Good luck, be patient.

Fuji F10 No power

You said that you changed the battery, did you put it in the right way around?.

I had exactly the same trouble, changed the battery (got it on ebay for £2.99) charged it and it worked.

Having said that, I closed the lense from external power. If the camera wont operate from external power then the camera is probably dead.

Fuji FinePix F700 LCD & Zoon Lens

Is the battery fully charged? Or is the battery near the end of its useful life? Some batteries hold a charge better than others-- I have 2, both used well, and one seems to last longer than the other...

Battery life

Try buying very high quality recharable batteries. You might have low quality batteries and the camera eats the battery up quickly.

USB error message

Have you connected any other USB devices to your PC? The USB ports can only supply a small amount of power and some devices especially USB connected hard drives consume more power than it can provide so they usually have an external power supply. Remove any other USB devices & try again. Did you have your camera connected before with a power adapter? Are you camera batteries fully charged? Let us know how you get on...
