Question about Fuji FinePix S9500 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

S9500 : rapid battery discharge

Duracell batteries go dead after about 20 shots, so I bought 8 brand new AA NiCd rechargeable batteries (2800mh), but they are not much better - the 'low battery' indicator comes on after only 30 shots. When I recharge them, one battery is flat, but the other 3 are still fully charged. What to do? Jonathon Miles, Spain

Check your focus control on the left side of the camera is not set to "continual focus" CF, as this will constantly adjust focus and run your battery down quickly.

Also NiCd batteries are not very useful -use Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMh) which last longer and don't suffer from memory effects. These batteries don't reach full capacity until after a number of recharge/drain cycles.

When I insert some batteries the red light begins blinking. I also have some Duracells that appear to be charging but when I place them in the appliance they are dead.


All chargers cannot charge all types of batteries. Are your Duracell batteries NiMH or Alkaline? These indications generally happen when you insert a battery type that is not rechargeable.

I bought KODAK NiMH 2400 mAh and it isn't rechargeable when I recharge it it jus work for few minutes.


NiMH tends to have a "memory". What this means is that the batteries will get used to being only charged and discharged a certain amount. What could be happening is that the battery THINKS it is charged when it is not... or.. it THINKS it is discharged when it is not. You can try to recondition them:
  1. Charge them
  2. reset the charger and charge again
  3. put them in your device and drain them
  4. let them sit, drain them again
  5. recharge them
  6. drain them again
Do this a few times. If you don't notice an improvement, you may want to consider getting a new set of batteries - I would recommend lithium rechargeables.

Camera shuts itself immediately after starting it


Did you try using the coolpix batteries that came along with the camera? check the ratings on coolpix batteries and compare them to the batteries that you are using now.

This one is easy. The alkalines simply do not have enough power. You will have to upgrade to a better battery such as rechargeable Nickel Metal Hybrid (NiMH). Problem solved guaranteed. The new batteries must be rated at 1600 milliAmp hours or better. I use Monster brand rated at a very good 1850 mAh and work very well. I bought a Monster brand charger with 4 batteries for under 20 dollars. This info is for AA cells and will vary for AAA's.,,,,,,good shooting!

Batteries discharge in 5 shots


I don't have a solution but I have exactly the same problem. Initially the camera would last for hundreds of shots and now it goes flat almost instantly. I suspect there is a fault with the camera battery indicator.
