    Same problem. S4000 camera, 4 months old, no trouble ...until day of big party. Cleared memory cards, charged batteries. And now it won't turn on. Batteries are fine (I also tried it with a brand new set; same result) and terminals uncorroded etc. Absolutely nothing. Fuji site says 'post it to us for repair'. Party is in 2 hours.

If you are using rechargeable batteries check the output of your charger, a 900mah charger will not charge 2800mah batteries to their capacity.

Dear Sir, I own a FujiFilm S9600, I was using it perfectly fine with near to full charge of batteries. I clicked a few photographs in Afternoon and turned off the camera after that. When I tried to Turn...


Hello Nikhil!
It is clear your batteries are low. Recharge the batteries and try again.
If you find the batteries run out fast, that means you have used the batteries for a longer period and they cannot hold the charge much longer. Then it is time to replace the batteries.
In hot climates like in your country the batteries may run out slowly even when not in use.

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this...


A few things here may cause the problem you have First the rechargeable batteries don't hold their charge like alkaline and will drop to zero or near zero voltage in just a few weeks. They may tun on a light but won't have enough power to operate a camera. When this happens you need to charge the batteries possibly twice. Another thing is if the batteries were left in the camera then it's very possible that the contacts down inside the battery compartment are corroded and need cleaning before proper connection can be made. One other thing is that the batteries have been installed out of sequence and I'm including a diagram for this.

It has been sent back to Fuji who say it's fine have put durcell in it and left it to charge but with no batteries in put batteries in it left it and turned it on after 1 hr and 30 mins and it still wopn't...


At this point you can only trust Fuji that they are correct in what they are saying in that the camera is fine which leaves only the power source you are using. I'm a bit confused as to what you have written. You said you put Duracell in it and left it to charge. To my knowledge and I may be reading this incorrectly it appears to me you are installing batteries in the camera and possibly hooking up the USB download cable expecting the camera to charge the batteries. The camera has no charging capabilities and rechargeable batteries need to be charged in a separate device made specifically for this function. I also know that some chargers come with a clear plastic guard over the + (positive) terminals and if you do not remove this plastic part there is no way the batteries can be charges. The charging lights come on and will remain on but no charge will enter the batteries. Maybe a quick test would be if you have a flashlight that takes AA batteries you place them in there and turn the flashlight on. Once you have confirmed that there is battery power then insert the batteries into the camera make sure they are in the correct placement (orientation)
Here is a picture of the correct battery placement.

This diagram is found on page 13 of your owners manual

Another diagram I'm including is what the camera will show as the battery state of charge.
This is found on page 15

I sincerely hope this helps

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power. Have tried new batteries [rechargeable...


Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts. I have seen battery contacts with a thin, transparent coating that came from leaking rechargeable batteries- doesn't look like the usual green crud, but it stops electricity from getting through. Try giving the contacts a scrape- you will need a long thin screwdriver or something of the sort.

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!

I recommend to all my customers with AA battery life issues to try Energizer Lithium AA's. Virtually all battery issues solved. I think alkaline batteries are being manufactured poorly, these days, so even brand new they aren't great.

i have a Fuji S9600 which seems to have a faulty On/Off dial. When swithing the camera on, the playback screen is displayed without any problem. However when selecting the picture taking mode, the LCD or view finder becomes a very faint grey colour and is dimly illuminated. When switching the camer off, this grey screen still remains until the batteries run out! The only way to switch off completely is to open the battery compartment. has anyone any ideas?

Cheers

Andy

i have this problem too, there is nothing you can do what so ever, its a problem with the resistor these budget cameras do not last and require constant maintenance, i recommend saving up and buying a better one.
