Fuji Fine Pix Z5 battery won't charge

My camera works fine when the charger is plugged but the battery won't charge. I bought a new battery assuming that was the problem and it will not charge either. Also, the charging light does not go on on ther camera when the charger is plugged in. Any ideas?

My Finepix Z5 works fine when the charger is plugged into the camera but the battery never charges. After reading the post with the same problem, I'm not sure if I want to buy a new battery and get the same results. The charging light also does not go on when camera is pluged in and is charging, help

    Our Fuji FinePix Z5 recently developed exactly the same problem. Works fine when plugged in, but goes off when unplugged. The battery is not the problem.

    Fugi FinePix Z5 will not power on/off regardless if battery inside or with charger plugged in. Expect better quality from Fuji than what I have gone through

I looked up this question with the same problem and while the battery was placed in with the right side in, the three metal tabs weren't on the right side with the three metal chargers- so I had to spin it around the other way...i hope i'm explaining this right...now it's charging! I am so glad. This camera is excellent.

Littlelily is right, I had the exact same problem; my camera wouldn't turn on when unplugged from the wall, and wasn't charging, and I thought that it was broken.
It turned out, as littlelily stated, that I actually had the battery in the wrong way around (embarrassing for a technician really :| ) ; you have to flip the battery so the left is now the right side and vice versa. NOT top to bottom, just a flip on it's Y axis (if it were standing with the shortest face as a base).

My sister's Z5 was having the same problem. I realized she had the battery in upside down. There are no guides on the battery to insure that it goes in the right way.

If the battery is in correctly, and it is still not charging, I would call Fuji to get it repaired.

The battery isn't in upside down. It works while plugged in, will turn on and take pictures but once I unplug the charger from the wall the camera won't even turn on.

I'm going to most likely send it in to Fuji but was hoping that Best Buy could do something since this is where I purchased it from...

Camera won't charge


sometimes the charger can become loose in either the camera or the plug so try buying a new plug and if it still doesn't work then it is a problem with the camera and you will have to ask the people you bought it from

Hello Pam, You have either a faulty contact for the battery or your battery is suffering from age. After time these camera batteries lose their capacity. Try a new fully charged battery.

Nikon Coolpix L110 camera was bought for me for Christmas 2010. Worked fine at first, but now seems to be having problems. Batteries don't last. I just bought new batteries in Feb/March this year...


You have to charge the batteries for nearly 8-10 hours. Brand new batteries also require a full recharge of 8-10 hours.Not only making sure the batteries are charged, have you changed the battery in the menu under type of batteries.

Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

Sorry to bother and hope this is free of charge. My name is John Gong and I bought this camera from staples to record videos for my youtube channel. Apparently I chose this camera but they had none in...


Yes, it's free ;-) Assuming that you really did buy an Olympus FE-4000 then it doesn't charge in the way you describe. It runs from a LI-42B battery, and that battery requires a plug-in charger; the one that should have been with the camera is a LI-40C, but if you buy a new one, it'll probably be a LI-41C. You have to take the battery out of the camera and plug it into the charger unit. I think you should go back to Staples, and tell them that even if it's the floor sample, it's no good to you without the charger for the battery. I hope your free ;-) answer helps...

Assuming the camera is working fine:

Probably the battery, but can't be certain without testing. They do wear out from use. New battery packs sell for a little over 20 bucks - a two pack for for $35 - you can likely fine them cheaper at a battery specialty store online. Do a google search on "battery NP-40" You could also search for a compatible charger, just in case :)

Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge


I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.
