Questions & Answers
Check batteries and the terminals that connect to your batteries. Often the contacts get corroded because batteries have acid in them.

The battery door is stuck on my fuji finepix S. How do I open it?
Check the basics first. Some of these suggestions may sound silly but I have done stuff like this.
Have you got something screwed to the tripod mount? This can overlap the door and stop it opening.
Have you dropped or bashed the camera recently?
Are you moving the door slide release in the correct direction? Check there is no damage visible on the camera or if there's anything trapped round the edge of the door jamming it?
Using a gentle but firm pressure with you thumb, press the door down into the 'closed' position. (I find sitting with the camera in my lap works best for this). Then use the slide release on the door. Release the pressure to see if the door has opened. You might need to roll your thumb round in flat circles to feel if the door is tight or slack when closed.
If this doesn't work or you have found some damage I would recommend you take it to a camera specialist as they will have the correct tools and skills to sort it out.

Fuji's waterproof camera not waterproof, and they
It's a gray area, your word against theirs. Unless you can find 100 people who have had the same problem, you have little chance of making a successful claim. Hopefully, the time will soon come when induction charging and Bluetooth will make it possible to build completely sealed underwater cameras.
