Epson 3100 life battery

I own a 3100Z since a few days but I'm surprised to see that the batteries alkaine LR6 (standard) last not much than 2-3 days. Do you think my epson has a problem?

Alkaline batteries can't give the necessary high currents. Please use 4 pcs. of NiMH rechargeable batteries. Everything will be OK then!

Re: epson 3100 life battery

I thought 3100Z package incudes Epson brand batteries and its charger when you bought it. Isn't it? I bought 3000Z package last year came with batteries and charger. Yes, Mal, NiMH rechargable batteries are much longer, too.

Re: epson 3100 life battery

I have a 3100z and you are right that alkaline batteries do not last long. The thing to do is buy a couple of sets of NiMH rechargable batteries and they last much longer. I,ve just been on holiday and had no problems at all with the batteries. (Although the camera does not give much warning when they need replacing).

The camera(Fujifilm Finepix AX 250) says that the life of brand new, never used LR6 AA Alkaline batteries is gone in 10 min-1hour, when the batteries have plenty of life left. The camera takes 2 AA LR6...


A search of the Fujifilm website provided no answers. Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Also, I would switch to 3 or 4 sets of rechargeable batteries. That way, you always have a fresh set ready and you'll save money in the long run.

It is brand new I charged the battery all day and put it in the camera and it wont turn on


Try to use non-rechargeable LR6 batteries.
If it still does not work the camera needs a repair.


Thank you for choosing Fixya

Having using standard LR6 batteries in a Canon before you will only get 3 or 4 pics max before it drains the batteries. You really need high power AA's like 2300mAH+ rechargeables for any good performance or Lithium AA's

Epson 3100Z battery life/power consumption


I have only had my 3100Z for about 3 months but I have found the battery life outstanding. I have the NI-MH batteries and haven't actually counted the number of pictures I take between chargings but it seems as if it is 200 or more. I also have many menu changes, view the photos in the camera and leave it on between shots. I also have sleep set for 30 seconds. I have actually never run the batteries down but recharged them twice in anticipation of needing plenty of power when I planned to take a lot of pictures. I'm guessing that you might have some faulty batteries.

3100Z Focus Problems


re you sure the out of focus condition is due to the actually focus or do to motion blur? I think the 3100Z in auto and flash on will set the shutter speed fairly low like 1/30th of a second for wide angle and 1/90th for full telephoto. This may not be fast enough to avoid motion blur. I would suggest using manual mode and shutter priority and set the shutter speed to 1/100th of a second. This won't effect the flash output but will reduce the amount of ambient light being captured which could cause long range shots to become darker in the distance. Name of the game, don't be afraid to take it off auto mode and experiment with manual setting.

AF assist lamp on 3100z?


The 3000Z does not have AF assist, and I assume the 3100Z does not have one either.
