Re: Problems with my Fuji camera
Sounds like the NP-80 type battery. They're usually good for several hundred recharge cycles. I'm guessing the camera is a few years old, as that battery hasn't been used for some time, since about 2001. Try charging the battery several times without using it. It sort of "crams" the juice into it, which may "wake the battery up". Other option is to find another charger, or have the voltage checked on your current one. Good luck.

Most of time it is a battery problem.... try with another battery, before purchasing new one....
If another battery does not works then get it serviced.
Battery has certain time period life (mostly it is expressed in, "no. of times charge") after that battery power deteriorates...
Or if battery has been water clogged then also battery power deteriorates.... (for water clogging may happens exposure of battery to humid conditions)

There is no internal battery. When the batteries become discharged or removed, the camera retains the date/time settings for about 24 hours. Most people have backup batteries fully charged so when one set is low in the camera, they can make the change quickly.
Yes. and Yes. I am guessing in the dark. I am assuming that your digital camera takes rechargeable batteries? If it does, after so many times you charge you battery they do have a tendency to go bad.
There are many website out there that will sell you a battery for that camera, but becarful some will sell you refurbish battery. To be on the safe side I would go to the manufactor of the camera website first to see what a new battery would you there.
I had the same problem, same camera. So I checked to see if other digital cameras had the same problem, and some did. Seems to be with the batteries. I took out my memory card, and reinstalled the batteries that came with my camera, I've only had it a few days. Turned it on and it worked, so I took a pic, and then turned it back off and reinstalled the memory card, and made sure it was formatted. Turned the camera back on and it worked, and took another pic with no problems. The batteries I have right now are Panasonic Alkaline for Digital. They seem to be a heavier battery, because the cheaper ones are lighter and didn't work. So I say try that brand or make sure the batteries are for digital purposes. Hope this helps.
My camera had a similar problem. It would work only in review mode and as soon as photo/film mode was selected it went dead. What I did was 'discharge' the battery totally and then fully recharged it. This can be done by going to Menu-Option-Setup-Discharge. After I had done this the camera stopped going dead but the battery still had a very poor lifespan. I bought a new battery and now the camera works as new. Hope this helps-Steve.
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:
thsi indicate the internal short in circuit which draining excess current and battery get discharged.
You nee dto chek internal circuit from technical expert. some component must be short .
let em knwo when it solved.
I don't know if this is the same problem, but a few months ago, I was getting a small circle in the same spot, every time I took a photo and the colour in that area of the picture was light. You can see it in the photo I've posted here, on the left side midway between the top and bottom.
__I took it into Fuji, and I think they cleaned the CCD. It only cost about $50, and the problem is gone! Hope this helps.
If your camera doesn't work with NiMH, then it's most likely that you have either one or more bad atteries, or your camera is defective.
p. 6 from the user guide:
"..Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long periods can become ?deactivated?. Also,repeatedly charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially discharged can cause them to suffer from the ?memory effect?. Ni-MH batteries that are ?deactivated? or affected by ?memory? suffer from the problem of only
providing power for a short time after being charged. To prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them several times using the camera?s ?Discharging rechargeable batteries? function. By
repeating this cycle several times, the temporary reduction in performance caused by ?memory? or ?deactivation? can be remedied and the batteries can be restored to their original performance
Sorry i cant help you more..
