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$

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.
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...
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...
listen you all...if the battery contacts are ok and the battries fully charged then it is a dead power board. make the investment and send it to a repair place unless it is an old junk and not worth repairing
