Question about Fuji FinePix Z1 Digital Camera
I had very similar problem. There is a small sensor flap near the hinge in the battery compartment which tells the camera if the battery door is closed or not. If it wont work properly it gives signal "battery door open" and camera will shut down, mine did it randomly after few seconds. To see if that sensor is the cause for the problem, push it in with a toothpick. If camera can be started up and it stays on while battery door is open then that's it. Try to clean it up by gently shaking the camera and sucking air from it, even small bit of dirt can cause the malfunction. As last solution you could superglue the sensor to "door closed" position. (There might be similar problem with front cover sensor also, but I have no experience with it.)

I also have a Z1 which shuts off frequently. It also sometimes fails to switch on at all. If the top of the front slide panel is depressed when opening, camera more likely to power up, but tricky to use whilst holding top tightly.
At least by this means the camera can be made to operate!

Try a different battery - how old is the camera - the voltage may be too low, hence it turns off.
