It's been a few months since I used my Fuji S3500 camera and when I recently changed the batteries in the camera, I noticed that I had to re-enter the date and time data. This has never happened before with any battery change. I tried taking out the batteries and re-inserting to see what would happen and it prompts me to enter the data every time I re-insert the batteries and is very annoying. Any ideas?

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.

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.
Read your manual Claire.
Blurred images can be caused by many things non of which you have indicated here so far.
Make sure the setting is set to auto so that camera decide what shutter speed/aperture to make.
Make sure you do not have it set to Macro mode.
Here are a couple of suggestions
But above all take the time to familiarize your self with it.
And don't let friends use it - tell them to get their own .Friends drop other people cameras and then say sorry but don't offer to pay for the replacement.
Hi, I always take the memory card out of my camera and use a card reader via the USB port.
This way I am not dependent on the camera having sufficient battery power or having to connect to an AC adaptor.
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.
