From the reviews on Amazon.com, it is unusual for this camera to eat batteries like this.
I would try to do a "reset all" as described on page 109 of the user manual.
Additionally on page 111 of the user manual, there is a menu selection for the type of batteries that you are using. You can choose from alkaline or lithium. Make sure that you have the type of battery that you are using selected. The battery case will tell you whether the batteries are alkaline or lithium.
If that does not resolve the problem, the I would inspect the battery compartment for any signs of corrosion on the battery contacts.
If the contacts look fine and there is no debris in the battery compartment, then you'll have to take the camera in to a service center to have them figure out what is causing the camera to eat batteries.

    After further research, I have found that there is a firmware update for this camera that allows for the use of Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. You might try installing the firmware update to see if it resolves your battery eating problem.

Why does my camera keep saying battery exhausted even when I change the batteries?


If batteries leaked in the camera the connections IN the camera may be dirty. Putting in a new battery takes care of the battery connection but not the camera connections. This is why it is very important to take out batteries when you are done taking photos. When you want to shoot again you put the batteries back in and set the time and date. You MAY be able to clean the connections with a pencil eraser. If you use a pencil eraser please blow out the dust from the eraser. If you are positive the camera then I cannot help you here.

Low battery


The manual says:
The camera turns off immediately even when battery power is full.
The remaining battery power is low even if new batteries are inserted.
•The remaining battery power may not be displayed accurately, and the camera may suddenly stop working, when the type of battery and the settings on [BATTERY TYPE] are not identical. However this is not a malfunction. Depending on the battery
brand and the operating temperature, or if exhausted batteries are used, the remaining battery power may not be displayed accurately.
and:
Use sufficiently charged batteries when using Ni-MH batteries.
You also should set the correct battery type in the setup menu. So put in alkaline / NiMH or oxyride. According to what you are using.
Before you panic, buy a set of alkaline batteries, to make sure your camera is ok. Perhaps you are using rechagable batteries who are not ok anymore.

My Fuji Finepix S5800 tells me my brand new batteries are flat.


It sounds like you have bad batteries. I have had rechargeables that have suddenly done the same thing. I have learned that buying really cheap ones doesn't work out. If you buy a good branded set, I think you will find that they are much better. :)

Blurry Photos & Batteries Exhausted


I may be able to help with the battery problem. Two suggestions: 1) With a WHITE eraser (preferably at the end of a pencil) rub the metal tabs in the camera that makes contact with the batteries. They may be slightly corroded. DON'T use a pink eraser. A fine sandpaper will also work, but is more difficult to work with inside a small space. 2) The metal tabs may be pushed in too far. You may need to pry them out with a small flat-head screw driver or needle nose pliers. Do so gently.

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries


you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..
