OK ..If you know the batteries are new.but you put them in the camera and kept them even for a week without powering it have to change them cause on the digital cameras the batteries are discharging themselves even if the camera is not powered..cause of some internal consumers..(this is the reason for the advice to take batteries out when not used) ..
So they have all the chances to not be functional ,,,get some new ones..this camera runs on 4 AA or 4Ni-MH batteries...and for that be aware that has a switch in the menu for the kinda battery you actually use...If they are really just a empty or ...just o wquality ones...try to power in the view mode that requires less power and see if this is teh case ...Anyway just get new ones..cause if thecamera itself has no issue ...the thing is just from the batteries..get the cammera with yourself at the store..and try a few models cause it depends on the amperage and they do not work with all batteries..It have to be real good ones alkaline ...and not cheap ones...and also ask for the other Nikel kind..cause if you by mistake changed the battery kind in the menu you have to power with those in order to reset it ..and use regular ..So..My advice take teh camera to the store..and try a few models of batteries and see what is the actual model the works ...and take a look at the mode to be on shooting ..for start normal...(remember for shooting the batteries have to be fully charged) ...

    by the way ..I dont want to seam shallow but take a look and see if you inserted the batteries in the right order ..cause if you turned on the other way by mistake ..this is also an issue ..see that it has a map for them inside ..

    Thanks for that, yes I did check that I put them in the wright way, I have had this camera for about 6 or 7 years now. The batteries are brand new from the packet and not the cheap sort, they are the ones I always use. I was aware that the camera drains the batteries and I do take them out. The camera wont turn on at all for me to adjust any settings.

    In this case...just try another set ...and if it does the same there is something else with it ..and a contact or a safety is to blame ....also check the lens not to be blocked by anything ..cause if they are ,will not power.....Another thing like I said to see if gets power just try to open in view pictures mode..and see if it works ...if does that may be something mechanical stopping it ...if it do not powers in this way either ..than is a contact ..check the contacts from the inside the battery's place and lift them a little and see that all are ok ..(also check the contacts from the lid) That s about all you can do by yourself...the rest yo will have to see if it worth repairing ..

Fuji S3500 won't turn on

Are they installed the right way? Also if you mixed old and new batteries, you need to use brand new ones.  Another thing check to see if the batter contacts have any battery acid on them as this will prevent the batteries from working, if this is the case, clean them with REGULAR Coca cola or a generous amount of baking soda and HOT!!!! Water.

Hi, I always take the memory card out of my camera and use a card reader via the USB port. This way I am not dependent on the camera having sufficient battery power or having to connect to an AC adaptor.

Fuji S3500 won't turn on

Acording to the manual, if a camera is stored for a period of time, you need to insert new batteries and leave the camera for an hour or so. I had the same problem, and after an hour the camera worked. AH
