Question about Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have just put a new set of batteries in my Finepix s5700 camera for the second time and they only last overnight. The camera is showing very low battery and it keeps shutting off after it comes on. I just put these batteries in! I would wonder if i had bad batteries, but it has happened 2 times.

Hi I have seen this problem many times before, what has happened is that the battery conditioner & power supply, has failed an internal Vreg (Voltage Regulator), has gone "Leaky" and this although it doesn't stop the unit, drains the batteries in no time. You cannot replace this yourself unless very skilled with surface mount technology, and are able to obtain the parts. It;s my professional recommendation that you Contact a Fuji service center, and arrange for a repair. It is not an expensive repair, but will most likely cost around $75.00 - $100.00, all up. BUT always ask for a "Quote" before allowing any work to be undertaken.I say this just in case this is the tip of a more complex problem.

I have a Fujufilm Finepix S5700 digital camera. Does not power up


hold power button down and remove battery at the same time once battery is out put battery into charger, if the light shows red then it needs to be charged if it shows green allow it to stay in the charger for 3 minutes then remove the battery and install in the camera pust the power button on hold for 5 seconds, if the camera comes on your ready to go, if not then you may have damaged the battery pack and will have to replace te battery. If you have a cable that plugs into the camera try using the powrord with battery plugged in, if it does not work then your battery is bad and you will have to purchase from fuji to get the right battery pack.

Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months ago. It has worked perfectly until the last few weeks. I can turn the camera on if I hold the playback button and switch on the power, and can scroll...


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time for new batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

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.

My Finepix s5700 will not turn on even with new batteries. The last thing I did was delete some photos from the memory card. The next time I went to turn it on I thought the batteries were dead and so I...


A possible cause could be the "cut off" switch for the xd picture card door. Check the plastic tabs on the door for damage. If it looks ok then open and close it a few times to see if the micro switch on the board is stuck. This is a cut off switch to prevent accidental removal of the picture card whilst the camera is powered up. The battery door may have 1 aswell so best to check this also. If there is damage then you maybe able to effect a repair to the plastic tab or replace the door. if the micro switch is damaged then you can bypass with either a solder bridge or wire. Have you put the batteries in correctly? - just an after thought....

Doesn't work at all!


Daft question, but are the batteries fully charged?

Lens cap off?

When you hit the menu/ok centre button, do you get the menu screen up?

Memory Card problems


It may sound stupid and obvious but try just taking the memory card out, give it a bit of a blow/wipe and putting it back in again, worked for me when my s5700 said it had a full card or that there was some other problem with the card

Battery low all the time


Try Eneloop batteries from Sanyo. They have the higher voltage needed. AND that voltage doesn't sag under the initial startup load.
