    Hi, I have the same problem with my fuji. Have had it several years and was working great one day and the next when I went to use it ... nothing. Wouldn't turn on at all. Have tried several different lots of rechargeable batteries which I have regularly used... but still nothing. Any ideas as I really loved this camera.

No thats a piezo sounder, its on the lower circuit board. The battery is directly below the bottom left corner of main screen, connectors are very tight and difficult to pull out. battery is soldered in.

Have you tested circuitry of all contacts.

I have juji s3500 that has just fail on me, puttnew batterys in ,with no response camera is totaly dead

First clean battery contacts with cotton cuetip and water, then wipe dry with dry cuetip. Check batteries to see if each discharged. Lack of use, moisture may have damaged the camera. Try to push on/off switch many many times to see if it will be zapped to work again.

Store camera in a ziplock bag to control moisture, while you work the on/off switch.

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.

Check your manual- Some models have a separate 'button' battery for date/time functions- there are quite long lived and are on all the time. If the manual does not reveal - seek out the Technical Support at Fuji

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
