Two things:
- it IS worth using good quality batteries - they are inexpensive anyway these days. Get some high capacity Ni-MH batteries [AA] and a good charger - Some with capacity > 2500 MAh is best. They'll definitely have enough power, too
- [and a good tip, this], using a very fine and small piece of glasspaper, very carefully rub the contacts in the battery compartment. Do it gently, but make sure the contacts are clean AND make sure you do the gentle rub on all contacts [i.e., on all the metal parts inside the compartment that will touch the +ve or -ve terminals of your batteries]. This can revive a camera. Sometimes, older batteries leak fluid that is hardly visible, BUT if that fluid gets on the contacts it can form a totally non-conductive surface and, unless that's removed, the camera might not boot/work at all. If u use the glasspaper, it can remove the film and the camera will work. I've done this many times, with success, on friends' cameras.
Good luck!

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this...


A few things here may cause the problem you have First the rechargeable batteries don't hold their charge like alkaline and will drop to zero or near zero voltage in just a few weeks. They may tun on a light but won't have enough power to operate a camera. When this happens you need to charge the batteries possibly twice. Another thing is if the batteries were left in the camera then it's very possible that the contacts down inside the battery compartment are corroded and need cleaning before proper connection can be made. One other thing is that the batteries have been installed out of sequence and I'm including a diagram for this.

Hi, I have the finepix s9600 and was wondering if the zoom lense could be changed on it for a higher zoom?? if so what would you recommend


The S9600 camera is a fixed lens camera and the lens ca not be changed not like a DSLR with interchangeable lenses. Your camera has the equivalent of 28 to 300mm focal length which is pretty respectable. One thing you could do is purchase an adapter but the quality of your pictures will suffer. Going to a full DSLR with the focal length you have now wouldn't be to cheap either.

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power. Have tried new batteries [rechargeable...


Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts. I have seen battery contacts with a thin, transparent coating that came from leaking rechargeable batteries- doesn't look like the usual green crud, but it stops electricity from getting through. Try giving the contacts a scrape- you will need a long thin screwdriver or something of the sort.

FinePix S9600 will not fire-up even though it has a new set of batteries


If the batteries are good, try using a very fine and small piece of glasspaper and very carefully rub the contacts in the battery compartment. Do it gently, but make sure the contacts are clean AND make sure you do the gentle rub on all contacts [i.e., on all the metal parts inside the compartment that will touch the +ve or -ve terminals of your batteries]. This can revive a camera. Sometimes, older batteries leak fluid that is hardly visible, BUT if that fluid gets on the contacts it can form a totally non-conductive surface and, unless that's removed, the camera might not boot/work at all.

Low battery indication with new batteries


Make sure you are using rechargable batteries. Normal batteries are not strong enough. Try using either rechargable Lithium Ion batteries, or rechargable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These are much stronger and should give you a good battery life.

My Fujifilm S9600 draining batts rapidly...


Hi !! With your comments I was thinking on al old problem that I have with a Fuji S7000 using a CF card, it drains the battery very fast, but the problem was the CF card, not the camera, I switch to a XD memory card and problem solved, Are you using a CF memory card?

If you are using rechargeable batteries check the output of your charger, a 900mah charger will not charge 2800mah batteries to their capacity.

i have this problem too, there is nothing you can do what so ever, its a problem with the resistor these budget cameras do not last and require constant maintenance, i recommend saving up and buying a better one.
