I got a new a camera already, Fuji wanted to charge £60 to look at it, because it's out of warranty, and they said up £200 for repair, and it's worth only a few quids. I have used this garbage only 6-7 times, cost £220 new. I wrote them a letter what crap defective unit, they offered £42 trade in. I spent 90 mins, put on hold to get thru to an advisor, they ruined my day and was very exhausted with them. I have never seen such pathetic customer services.
Acording to the manual, if a camera is stored for a period of time, you need to insert new batteries and leave the camera for an hour or so.
I had the same problem, and after an hour the camera worked.

First clean battery contacts with cotton cuetip and water, then wipe dry with dry cuetip. Check batteries to see if each discharged. Lack of use, moisture may have damaged the camera. Try to push on/off switch many many times to see if it will be zapped to work again.
Store camera in a ziplock bag to control moisture, while you work the on/off switch.
Are they installed the right way? Also if you mixed old and new batteries, you need to use brand new ones. Another thing check to see if the batter contacts have any battery acid on them as this will prevent the batteries from working, if this is the case, clean them with REGULAR Coca cola or a generous amount of baking soda and HOT!!!! Water.
Check your manual- Some models have a separate 'button' battery for date/time functions- there are quite long lived and are on all the time.
If the manual does not reveal - seek out the Technical Support at Fuji
If you have had it less than a year or even a little over- Fuji may come up with a modestly priced or even FREE replacement,if over and , before you send it to a repairer or contact the Fuji Tech Support team try one more thing.
Take the batteries out and with the end of pencil, eraser - give the contacts at bottom the battery chamber a polish. Now take a look at the lid of the chamber if it has a continuous piece of metal inside so as to cover the battery ends put a piece of foil across them if two batteries ,or arrange 2 pieces of foil to replicate the correct alignment if 4 batteries
Then close the lid .
See what happens - it may simply be a battery contact thing.
