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.
Greetings - You're absolutely right - Your camera should work with any rechargeable or alkaline AA batteries.
Have you tried using a second set of batteries besides the first and are they new batteries or batteries that have been lying around in a drawer?
If they're new you might want to try an old trick that might help and get a regular pencil with an eraser and use the eraser to clean the contacts on both ends of the battery compartment. When you're done make sure you blow out any bits of eraser that might have crumbled off.
If the batteries are new and the contacts are clean your camera has some kind of problem and I suggest you visit Fuji Films tech support website HERE.
Do you hear anything when the camera is turned on? Perhaps you're just not seeing the display on the View Panel? When you flip a tiny switch, which I've done accidentally, it turns off the panel display so that you can only look through the view finder. Each camera is different, so be sure to check your manual to locate this switch.
After you turn the camera OFF. You may also want to check your battery placement. One incorrect placement will cause the camera to be "dead". Also look into the battery compartment to make sure a battery has not leaked on the leads. If you can't see the metal on any of them you may want to carefully clean it using a small Q-Tip or a pencil eraser. If you use an eraser be sure you get all the left over residue out of the chamber afterwards.
You've probably already tried these things, but hopefully it will help to get your camera working again.
Check the battery contacts in the camera.
If you have let batteries become totally discharged while being stored, they would have caused corrosion on the contacts.
Clean with a pencil eraser and then with alcohol on a Q-Tip.
Hi. Remove those new batteries and use the eraser end of a common pencil to clean the battery contacts within the camera itself. Then reinstall the batteries. If it still will not start have the "new" batteries tested at a radio shack store, they do this for free. Joe
Had the same problem. I could randomly make it turn on by some bazzarre combination of pushing buttons. Now won't do anything. Call Leapster 800 #, and thought I was getting a bunch of b.s. from a "tech" person, however IT IMMEDIATELY RESOLVED THIS PROBLEM. Remove the battery pack and batteries. Take a pencil eraser and rub/clean the contact point where each battery goes in on the tray (except the coil sides). Reinstall the batt's back in the trey. Use the eraser to do the same thing to the outside contact points on the outside edge of the tray as well as on the Leapster itself where the tray goes. Finally reinstall the the battery tray, and BINGO ! Crazy....I would have lost a bet on this "fix".
Remove the batterty andclean the internal battery contact with an eraser on the end of a pencil- take a flash light to look inside the compartment to enfure they are bright and clean. Make sure the battery door and contact srip are a good tight fit Hold the door down with a finger whilst switching on Other than that there is little moreyou can do
Open the camera and remove the batteries. Use the eraser on the end of a pencil to reach up inside the camera and gently clean the battery contacts. Be careful not to bend the contacts. Don't use a lot of pressure or a lot of scrubbing, just let the slight abrasiveness of the pencil eraser do the cleaning. Use a pencil with a good clean eraser, not one with a dried out, hard, old eraser. Hold the camera in the normal upright position and reach in from the bottom with the pencil, so all of the eraser bits and dirt fall out of the camera. Check that there are no dirt or eraser bits left inside after you are done cleaning.
Clean the contacts on the battery compartment door the same way.
Hope this helps. It fixed my vivitar 5385 that would not turn on, and had the light blinking.
