Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Finepix A600, it has a very short battery life using NiMh batteries. While it was under warranty it had a software upgrade to improve the battery threshold tolerance of the camera. This made some improvement, but the battery life is still short. The NiMh batteries are fine. Is there anything that can be done. Thanks

Hi,

Try using higher capacity NiMh batteries.

Red battery light even with new batteries - then shuts down


Your camera can work with 2 AA sized batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period.
Always charge sets of batteries together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
AA manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries and NiCd rechargeable batteries cannot be used with this camera.
If you are sure you have good batteries, also check if all contacts are clean and shiny. No oxidation is allowed. To clean contacts never use sharp tools. They can damage the camera forever.
Eventually clean contacts with a cotton swap or a dry cloth.
Also check if no debris is in the battery compartment. Just a little pice of paper can spoil all the (camera) fun.
Just to make sure, try some other batteries, then the ones you are sure of, they are fully charged. Perhaps, next time you are less convinced.

What batteries do I use for fujifilm finepix a605 digital camera


Your camera takes two AA sized batteries. You can use either disposable alkaline cells (like Duracell) but the battery life will be short, or can use rechargeable NiMH cells (recommended). Absolutely do not use NiCad or Lithium rechargeables in your camera, and you also mustn't use manganese cells (sometimes called lithium manganese).

Ni-mh


Hi there,

yes ther is no problem using Ni-MH batteries, as they do not have a memory effect they will be better (subject to your charger), you can get the Fuji Finepix NH-20 batteries (wj=hich are NIMH) here - Fuji Finepix F420 battery

My Finepix A900 digital camera is turning itself off every time i try to take a picture.It's not the batteries, I've tried 2 sets of new ones. Any suggestions?


Actually, it may be the batterys. Even top brands like Energiser can have unbelievably short battery life if they are not NiMh! Go onto the FujiFilm website and find the batteries they recommend

Fujifilm a600 problem since new


If still under warranty, Fuji can perform a "power re-set" on the camera. This reduces the amount of power the camera requires, and should solve the problem for the long-term. I have sent out one of my customer's A600 with the same conditions. The re-set solved his problem.

Card not initializing


You will have to format it. Keep it in the camera and go through the manual's instructions for doing this, sorry but this sometimes happens.
