Question about Fuji FinePix S3100 Digital Camera
I have a fuji finepix s3100 and the power wont come i tried new batteries and the power wont come on what am I to do help help help
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
