I can't use rechargeable batteries in my A700, newly charged batteries sometimes power off after about 1 minute, says they need recharging. I can only use AA Alkaline non-rechargeable, as they have a higher voltage than rechargeables. To me, this camera has been a disappointment.

I have a Fuji A170 digicam. I use UNIROSS rechargeable Ni-Mh batteries. My problem is after inserting 2 fully charged batteries, the power drains off after clicking only 8-10 photos. Pls help.


Digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries, and the early Fuji ones were notorious. Ni-MH rechargeables are definitely the way to go, but you don't mention the capacity rating of the rechargeables you are using.

NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH or more are available, and these will obviously last longer per charge than those rated 1600mAH or so. However, all things come to an end, and while Ni-MH cells are supposed to be rechargeable hundreds of times under ideal conditions, in real life they will lose a bit of capacity every time until they become a bit short of puff.

Can I use 4AA lithium Ion batteries in my Fuji SLR finepix s9600 .Thanks Les


It's better not to, Les.
Fuji suggest using AA Ni-MH batteries or simply alkaline. Others [e.g., Ni-CAD] can cause the camera to overheat and give real problems. Given the relatively low cost anyway, higher capacity Ni-MH batteries and a good charger unit seems the way to go - and will keep the camera healthy!

My camera just does not seem to hold a good battery charge. I use fully charged batteries and this also happens with Duarcell too. I am only using the camera in the "on" selection.


Some digital camera **** the life out of batteries, especially the older ones, even when off. It stores info like date and time etc. I take the batteries out when I am not using it for a while. True it is a pain resetting the time but it saves the batteries. Also go for the top line rechargebles,

Fujifilm finepix a205 digital camera


This is not specific to your camera, just general advice. I think that Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are recommended for most digital cameras. However, you should be able to use normal alkaline batteries too.

Hi there,

yes ther is no problem using Ni-MH batteries, as they do not have a memory effect they will be better (subject to your charger), you can get the Fuji Finepix NH-20 batteries (wj=hich are NIMH) here - Fuji Finepix F420 battery

Only use Ni-MH or AA-size alkaline batteries. Do not use Ni-Cd (nickel-cadmium) because the heat emitted can damage the camera.

I would suggest using e2 batteries from Energizer.

In the manual, on page 80 there is a description and procedure for discharging Ni-MH batteries (but NOT regular batteries, so don't do this with regular alkaline batteries) AND do not do this when the external power is connected.

Moving on... The discharging of the batteries procedure should happen when:
  • the batteries last for a short time after being charged normally
  • the batteries have not been used for a long period
  • the batteries are new.
Follow these instructions:
  1. Press the menu/OK button to display the menu on the LCD monitor
  2. Press the "left" or "right" on the pad to select "SET" OPTION and then press "up" or "down" to select "SET-UP".
  3. Press the "MENU/OK" button to dipslay the "SET-UP" screen.
  4. Press "right" or "left" to move to option 5 and then press "up" or "down" to select "DISCHARGE".
  5. Press "right"
  6. Press "left" or "right" to select "OK".
  7. Press the "MENU/OK" button.
The screen changes and discharging begins. When the battery level indicator blinks red and discharging ends, the camera turns off.

Remember to not have the camera external battery plugged in so the battery can discharge on it's own.

Then, at this point, recharge the battery using the external battery charger. This helps to "renew" the battery. This is because Ni-MH batteries will remember the last place where they recharged, and too many times, the memory "bookmark" gets marked to low and has to be reset, done by the recharge.

It may be necessary to repeat these steps multiple times. This effect is not because the batteries are deffective. This is a normal side-effect of Ni-MH. This is the reason the camera comes with a discharge feature.

I the batteries are old and don't function even after performing the discharge procedure as part of the normal operation of the camera (like of the year or two), then the batteries may have reached the end of their service life.

Hope this helps, if so, please rate FixYa! ThankYa!

Can't use chargeable batteries


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 levels. ..." Sorry i cant help you more..
