The camera said that the batteries were low, so I replaced the batteries with newly charged NiMH batteries. Nothing happened. So I replaced those batteries with different NiMH batteries. Nothing. The camera is dead. Fuji wants me to send it to them for inspection. It is 3 years old. I really like the way this camera feels in my hands and all of its' functions. Is there an internal battery inside the camera that needs to be replaced? I don't know, what do you think. I'm good at fixing older stereo gear with discreet circuits, but am out of the loop when it comes to integrated circuits being used nowadays.
There is a option in the menu that turns the camera off after 2min. and then after that it is hard to get started.I took out the rechargable batteries and installed new duracell batteries,and it started and then I went to the menu and disabled the powersaver option.

Sorry, did did not put in any fuse in this camera. When it does not start up, check the battery, if it still holds some charge and the contacts, both on the battery and in the camera. All contacts should be clean and shiny. Only clean with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. NO SHARP tools.
I have same problem as edmoze mentions above - batteries went dead. I first tried to use regular Duracell AA and it would still not come on. Went to internet & it recommended getting the Duracell rechargeable NiMh which I did. Got the charger & last nite they charged overnight. Today the camera did come on & I was able to download what I had taken. But what concerns me is that the low battery light is still flashing after a night of charging. What's up? Should I expect this kind of battery problem to continue? Seriously considering getting a Nikon Coolpix.
If your Fuji e510 battery system is like the Finepix S3000 or the S3100 take a look at the following postings: Finepix S3100 (Camera power does not come on...) by banobo of Feb 07,2008 and check out solutions #2 & #4, (Mine is #4), Also see posting by "tomawamba for Fuji S3000" and my slightly differently worded solution.(Only one posted). May be best to get camera working before connecting with anything else. Good luck, be patient.
Sorry, no real solution. My friends have one that would not turn on and they left it without batteries for a month, then put the batteries in and it worked. Mine has failed and will not turn on. I have left the batteries out but nothing has miraculously fixed itself yet. May have to send it in to Fuji.
Take the batteries out and clean the contacts Those at the bottom of the battery compartment you can clean with the eraser at the end of a pencil do the same with the lid. Make sure the batteries are fresh/charged
When you close and lock the compartment lid squeeze it shut then turn on- it may be a contact problem. If this fails then it will be a repair shop job
There are a few things you can try. I had a fuji that would sometimes do this also. I found low power was one of the main issues. First try a new set of NiMH as alkalines just wont cut it specualy with these older cameras. Next check the memory card door. There is a little tiny switch on the memory door that will turn the unit off if the door is opend. Make sure the door is fully closed and maybe even hold it down tite while you try and use it.
