    My 6800 has also died whilst in use. It will no longer charge a battery or work on battery power. I did momentarily get it to work on cable but when i pulled the wire it died again. I have checked it with a battery of known good state and still nothing. Having taken it apart to look for obvious scorching or a loose cct board plug i found nothing. I did notice a tiny battery on one of the boards, i don't know the impact of this failing but i would'nt have thought that it could be too severe. Either way it does not look too promising. My overall feeling is that one of my batteries has failed and blown something in the camera.

The battery may well not be making contact. On low voltage high current circuits the contact resistance is critical. Th.e actual contacts which would seem to need to be looked at are not only those of the battery but the matching contacts in the camera. I would reccomend you to acquire a 'Fiber Glass' cleaning pencil and a small quantity of switch cleaner, whith which to damp the point of the pencil.
this solution cleared a simlar problem on my camera.

    After thought, look at other 6800 entry relating to internal fuse.

Fuji FinePix 6800Zoom Lens not closing

Muck in the works probably. Ho;ld the camwra face down and give a gebtle tapping with a pencil on the side to see if it dislodges. Sending it away to Fuji could be expensive.

The problem will just be a loose/damaged connector in the area where you are pressing, should be able to be easily fixed by anyone who knows how to open it up. Try your local camera repair place and get them to quote - it shouldn't be much labour or parts. Hope this helps :)
