Question about Fuji Cameras

1 Answer

Fuji Finepix S-9100 digital camera. Problem with using either Alkaline AA or NiMH AA batteries. New batteries will not allow my camera to start. One quote from United Camera . Com said it was the main board. Fuji refuses to acknowledge it is their problem. I don't even know what the main board is, much less know how to fix an internal problem related to the manufacturer.

Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera with a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser. Make sure all oxidation or any battery chemical corrosion is completely cleaned off, and the terminals are shiney and clean. If that doesn't help, you have a shorted out circuit on the main board (where most of the electronic circuitry is). When this happens, they don't troubleshoot to the component since it's extremely difficult and time consuming- they just swap the board with a new one. Unfortunately, this board is most of the camera, and the most expensive part. When things like this happen, it's often better to just buy a new one, since the cost of repair is high.
Check out ebay for deals on new and used cameras, and Walmart and Best Buy and other dealers often have great specials.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have a fuji s7000 i put it away for for a year and now it wont turn on tried new batteries and even the power cord ,does it have a seperate internal battery


Not likely it has a an extra battery, keeping you from starting up.
Just get out the batteries, charge them again (Yes again) and in the mean time, use some cotton swabs, to clean the contacts in the camera. Before you reinsert the batteries also clean the contacts on the batteries. Make sure you only use NiMH rechargeable and don't use NiCD batteries.
To test the camera, you could insert a set of new Alkaline batteries, but you will see they don't lats as long as the NiMH batteries.
Never use zinc carbon batteries in a camera.
Let me know how you go.

Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work. Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.

Red battery light even with new batteries - then shuts down


Your camera can work with 2 AA sized batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period.
Always charge sets of batteries together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
AA manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries and NiCd rechargeable batteries cannot be used with this camera.
If you are sure you have good batteries, also check if all contacts are clean and shiny. No oxidation is allowed. To clean contacts never use sharp tools. They can damage the camera forever.
Eventually clean contacts with a cotton swap or a dry cloth.
Also check if no debris is in the battery compartment. Just a little pice of paper can spoil all the (camera) fun.
Just to make sure, try some other batteries, then the ones you are sure of, they are fully charged. Perhaps, next time you are less convinced.

What batteries do I use for fujifilm finepix a605 digital camera


Your camera takes two AA sized batteries. You can use either disposable alkaline cells (like Duracell) but the battery life will be short, or can use rechargeable NiMH cells (recommended). Absolutely do not use NiCad or Lithium rechargeables in your camera, and you also mustn't use manganese cells (sometimes called lithium manganese).

Can I use 4AA lithium Ion batteries in my Fuji SLR finepix s9600 .Thanks Les


It's better not to, Les.
Fuji suggest using AA Ni-MH batteries or simply alkaline. Others [e.g., Ni-CAD] can cause the camera to overheat and give real problems. Given the relatively low cost anyway, higher capacity Ni-MH batteries and a good charger unit seems the way to go - and will keep the camera healthy!

Low battery.very fast


that camera might be from the year 2000 or so ... the NiMH batteries should be way beyond their expected life time .. .you might want to try just regular alkaline batteries (but dont charge them) .. if they hold up reasonably well then you should purchase new NiMH AA batteries ... i can recommend the new "Eneloop" batteries for this .. they are like normal NiMH but stay charged for months or even a year .instead of the few weeks for normal cells .. normal cells have to be charged just before you use them to get the most out of them .. not so with the eneloop .. charge them and use them in 3 months and they are still good ... and they can be charged many more times than normal cells ... obviously i love them .. ... any NiMH AA cell will do but they cost about the same as eneloop .. i doubt that you can get the SM cards for that camera anymore ... so you probably dont wan to put a lot in it ... but its still a good camera ..

I recommend to all my customers with AA battery life issues to try Energizer Lithium AA's. Virtually all battery issues solved. I think alkaline batteries are being manufactured poorly, these days, so even brand new they aren't great.

Fujifilm Finepix a825 Digital Camera Battery Life issue


2 long shots as I don't know anything about the a825
Some cameras have a setting in their menu that allows you to choose between alkaline or NiMh (rechargable). If the setting is wrongly set to alkaline when using rechargable it is unlikely to recognise that the batteries are charged and would report low battery. Check your manual to see if their is a select battery setting and check whether it is set correctly.
Occasionally errors on digital cameras can be corrected by removing the memory card and batteries, leaving for 2-3 days and then putting back in the batteries, turning on, turning off, putting the memory card back in and turning back on.

Choosing batteries


Your camera requires four AA size batteries. There are several factors that contribute to battery life: NiMH: This is the best solution for enjoyment and cost savings. NiMH batteries typically last longer per charge than the average alkaline batteries. NiMH batteries are rechargeable batteries, so they can be used several times and thereby reduce the expense of continually purchasing new batteries. NiMH batteries are typically sold with a power adapter for charging. The life of these batteries can often be determined by the mAh rating, the higher the mAh rating on the battery, the longer that they will last. NiMH batteries do not have the memory effect associated with NiCd batteries, which means that these batteries can be recharged at any time and at your convenience (you do not have to wait for the batteries to completely drain between charges). Lithium: Energizer has introduced a new series of Lithium batteries that provide optimum performance and long life for disposable AA size batteries. Laboratory studies shows that Lithium batteries last more than three times as long as standard Alkaline batteries. This means more hours of fun and satisfaction with your digital camera. These lithium batteries are not rechargeable, they are long lasting. Alkaline: Using the Display, downloading images, playback, zoom and flash all require some battery power to operate and may decrease the number of shots per set of batteries. Performance may vary based on the Alkaline batteries selected. The benefit of being able to use alkaline batteries is that you can find then almost anywhere if needed. Manganese: If you are using manganese batteries, the typical battery life will be about 2 - 5 shots. Then the camera will indicate that battery power is low and may shut-down. To avoid this experience, use either Alkaline or NiMH batteries. Optimum Solution: Use a set of NiMH batteries for longer use and to reduce the expense of continually buying new batteries. It may also be a good idea to keep a spare set of NiMH batteries for other devices that require AA size batteries on a regular basis. Use AA Alkaline batteries when the NiMH batteries need to be recharged and you want to continue enjoying the use of your camera.
