    I am having the same problem with my Fuji S3100. I took about 20 pictures and it told me that the batteries were low. So I put in freshly charged Ni-MH batteries, but it still wouldn't come on. I tried a different set of Ni-MH batteries and switched the XD card, but still nothing. I tried cleaning the contacts, but that didn't help either. Can anyone help????

    This is the second fuji S3100 I have bought, the first one did the same thing!!! No response when the power is turned on. I LOVE the quality of pictures and everything else about it, I just want my camera to work!!!

    Fujifilm Finepix S3100--I have had this camera for 3 years & love the pictures & features. However, this is the 2nd S3100 I've had. The 1st done the same thing as this one is doing--won't power up! This is such a let-down!! It is obviously out of warranty so I guess my best option is to buy another camera. :-( Shame because I really do love the quality of this one--or what it used to be. (And I really do 'baby' what I own!!!)

Thank you codmac! Camera now works. Didn't have any lighter fluid handy, (only the pressurized fluid used in lighters these days) so used rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) a couple of times. Put a few drops into the battery compartment just above the switch area. Didn't work. So used a dab of wd-40, then cleaned with rubbing alcohol and dried with hair dryer. Only took about 25 clicks on the switch to make it go.Still works. Thanks again for the ideas.

READ AND HEED THE SAFETY DISCLAIMER BELOW!

THE ONE I BOUGHT TO GET THE CD WOULDN'T TURN ON. EXPERIENCE TOLD ME THAT IF I OPERATED THE POWER SWITCH MANY TIMES, IT MIGHT CLEAN THE CONTACTS AND TURN ON. IF THAT DIDN'T WORK AFTER 200 TRIES, I WOULD POUR SOME RONSON CIGARETTE LIGHTER FLUID INTO THE CAMERA BATTERY COMPARTMENT, TILT THE CAMERA SO IT PUDDLED IN THE SWITCH AREA AND TRY AN OTHER 200 TIMES. IN THIS CASE, IT TURNED ON ON THE 83DR TRY, DRY, AND IS WORKING FINE.

FOR SAFETY, IF USING THE LIGHTER FLUID, LEAVE THE BATTERIES OUT, AND NO POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN TO AVOID POSSIBLE IGNITION. MAKE SURE THE CAMERA IS DRY BEFORE APPLYING POWER.

Is it maybe the year. I have the same problem. Changed batteries, cleaned contacts, nothing. I love the camera and this is the first problem I've had with it. The camera sat for 1 month and went to use it and nothing. There has to be something commmon to these. I wonder if other Fujji camaras have the same problem

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.

Fujifilm S3100 won't power on


I'm not familiar w/ the S3100 but do you see any corrosion in the battery terminals? These camers don't usually just quit working. If the terminals are clean, what battery are you using? How many mA or milliAmpere rating? These are usually indicated on the rechargable battery's sides. There are some new battery in the market. The eveready silver colored battery. I forgot the name. It is one notch above the regular alkaline battery. Let me know if this helps.

Try Fuji's website. I think the website is

The cd you're looking for I think is on the 2nd column and 2nd row. Let me know if this helps.

there is a option in the menu that turns the camera off after 2min. and then after that it is hard to get started.I took out the rechargable batteries and installed new duracell batteries,and it started and then I went to the menu and disabled the powersaver option.

Take the batteries out and clean the contacts
Those at the bottom of the battery compartment you can clean with the eraser at the end of a pencil
do the same with the lid.
Make sure the batteries are fresh/charged

When you close and lock the compartment lid squeeze it shut then turn on- it may be a contact problem.
If this fails then it will be a repair shop job
