Fuji FinePix 3800

My Finepix 3800 just stopped turning on. Any suggestions? And, yes, the batteries are new and in the correct way. I have it apart and I'm looking to make sure everything is connected properly, but I'm not really an expert on these things.

    My camera will not turn on either. Started when I would view a picture, then you could not get it back to the mode to take another picture. This happened 4 or 5 times. Had to shut the camera off/on to take another picture. Now it will not come back on.

    Same here. I took five pictures today with it and it worked fine. I turned it back on this evening and suddenly, out of the blue, it refuses to work any more. I changed batteries to brand new ones and still nothing. It's a shame because the camera took very nice photos.

    I was only using my camera when taking pictures of items I sell on Ebay. It sat not in use for several months.When I went to use it again it no longer powered up. I changed to a brand new re-chargeable battery set but it made no difference. This is a real shame since I loved the pictures this camera took. I hate to junk it because it is in perfect shape and really I never got alot of use out of it.

Not sure if it is a solution, but there is a class action pending in New Jersey District Court for the defective power problems experienced by owners of the Finepix 3800. It seeks reimbursement for the cost of repair or replacement.

This is only a partway solution. I have had the same problem. However, today I connected an external power supply and it works. I am thinking that there may be a break in the battery compartment.

Fujifilm FinePix 3800 flash will not work

Normally when the flash stops working it is because the capacitor the camera uses to store the flash power ( that is what charges..not the bulb) burns out. This is a very difficult repair and should only be completed by a camera technician.
If the repair is over 10 dollars I would suggest a new camera.
