Even with absolutely fresh batteries properly installed, I keep getting a "change the batteries" message, and then the camera shuts down. It worked fine for two years!


Peter,
Try using a Q-tip and some alcohol to clean the contacts inside the battery housing of the camera - it's possible there's enough build up to prevent a clean connection.

Thank you.

My Fuji Finepix S5100 camera keeps losing its settings and date and time when the batteries die. Is there a small "watch" type battery that can be replaced so it can keep its memory?


There is no "watch" battery in the camera. Always keep fresh batteries on hand and switch them out quickly. That usually solves the problem.

Camera says replace batteries even when fresh ones are installed


Sir/Maam,

Have you tried using new batteries? How long have you been using the old batteries? As far as i know, the longer you use a rechargeable batteries, the shorter its life(compared to the first time you used it).

Try using new batteries, if the problem is still there, the camera my have the problem. But if the camera works fine, then your old battery is defective.

Keep me update, hope i helped you. Thanks.

The main batter will not hold its charge when left in the camera.


After 12 months use camera batteries will not hold a true charge, but they can still be used for clocks, or remotes. Buy new ones. We all have the same problem.

What battery to put in the camera


You have a couple options. First you can buy lithium batteries, which are a little pricey, but they last a great deal longer in high tech devices such as digital cameras.

Second, you can buy rechargable batteries, which also last alot longer in cameras, and are worth the price because they can be reused!

Good luck!

Canon A95 "Change Batteries" problem!


I have this problem as well. I thought it was a problem with my NiMH batteries. So, I bought a volt meter to make sure the batteries worked. I have 8 AA NiMH batteries. I charged them all up and tested them with the volt meter. They were all good to go. However, no matter what I put in the camera one of two things happens:
1. I get the "change batteries" message.
2. I don't get the message, but the next time I check the camera (a few days later), one of them is totally drained.
Something is very wrong and I plan on contacting Canon.
