Finepix f10 problem

Camera seems to have died. Bought new battery only to find charge light comes on for 20 seconds. Camera dead and unable to open

    Camera won't turn on. When charging the charge light stays on briefly then goes off as if to signal full charge, yet the F10 still will not turn on. I'm awaiting for new battery to arrive.

    Hi I seem to have the same problem, there's still just about enough power to turn the camera on but it won't charge. Charge light doesn't come on. Have previous posters found a solution please?

Try holding in the power button on the camera with the charger connected to the camera & still plugged into the wall outlet. This may be a reset the manual doesn't tell you about or simply a weird fix for the same problem I had with my F10.

The light doesn't come on when the charger is plugged in to the camera, therefore I am unable to charge the battery and turn the camera on. Does this mean the battery is dead?


When the light does not come on while charging as you suggested might be the battery is dead but even when batteries die the indicator foe charging still comes on.
From a professional point of view i would say it is more likely the charger is spoilt this means the camera does not supply power to the unit.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Fuji FinePix S9000 battery change clears date/time.


Hi

I started having a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix F10 after about 3 1/2 years of problem-free use. Another poster had some really helpful advice which I thought I'd pass on. It seems there is an internal battery or capacitor which basically fails after a while, meaning date/time settings etc are lost when the battery is removed. (Some people claim this is a motherboard/chip problem instead - seems to be contentious!) So the camera is faulty, but the problem can be worked around.

The advice I found, which worked for my camera, was this:

- Turn off camera and leave off for approx 15 seconds before opening battery door.
- Change battery quickly (within a few seconds).
- Close battery door and leave camera off for approx 15 secs before turning back on.

This retained all settings when I tested it multiple times. I imagine it might not work if changing over a totally dead battery though.

Hope it helps!

FUji FinePix s1000fd, camera will not power on with new batteries, when it powers on it goes off in a few seconds or minutes indicating battery low, i have used fully charged batteries, ordinary batteries...


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.

Fuji F10 No power


You said that you changed the battery, did you put it in the right way around?.

I had exactly the same trouble, changed the battery (got it on ebay for £2.99) charged it and it worked.

Having said that, I closed the lense from external power. If the camera wont operate from external power then the camera is probably dead.

No power Fuji F10


The symptom of light staying on briefly then going off suggest the battery is dead. If you bought a new battery did you put it in correctly? turn it around and try again.
