Re: can't use chargeable batteries
If your camera doesn't work with NiMH, then it's most likely that you have either one or more bad atteries, or your camera is defective.
p. 6 from the user guide:
"..Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long periods can become ?deactivated?. Also,repeatedly charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially discharged can cause them to suffer from the ?memory effect?. Ni-MH batteries that are ?deactivated? or affected by ?memory? suffer from the problem of only
providing power for a short time after being charged. To prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them several times using the camera?s ?Discharging rechargeable batteries? function. By
repeating this cycle several times, the temporary reduction in performance caused by ?memory? or ?deactivation? can be remedied and the batteries can be restored to their original performance

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!
Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter
Clicking noise it's because your batteries are not very powerfull! Normal batteries it's not working for me! After i replace standard alkalines with rechargeable NiMH batteries Sony 2700 Ni-MH or Varta 2700 Ni-MH it's was working!
yes ther is no problem using Ni-MH batteries, as they do not have a memory effect they will be better (subject to your charger), you can get the Fuji Finepix NH-20 batteries (wj=hich are NIMH) here - Fuji Finepix F420 battery
I found that one has to use their batteries of at least 2100mAh and NI-MH. I recharged my batteries removed the new ordinary alkaline batteries I had put in and BINGO IT WORKED. Just to prove the point I put in another set of Alkaline batteries No good. It must be that NI-MH Batteries rated at 2100mAH have more power (or one can draw more currentat start up) a battery guru could maybe veryify my conclusions. Anyhow try NI-MH batteries and see how you go. Best of luck fredlich
