    You insert brand new batteries but they do not last for more than a few shots.

    I have the same problem. Out of the blue, my S9000 stopped working. It's definitely not an issue with the batteries.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    Hi, even with brand new alcaline batteries it stoppes at 1,41 volt instead of 1,2 when I bought it

    I have the same problem and i think it is one of the battery contacts that is the problem. I have cleaned them but did not help. Trying to find a battery compartment to replace it and hope that works.

Hi, This is actually a very good camera.Did you insert the batteries in reverse accidently?? this seems to be a problem with the switching circuit from battery and power adapter.. did you keep the camera with batteries for a long time with out use??

I have found this happens often with batteries if you've half charged them in order to use them in a crunch. However, I've also found the S9000 has a feature that discharges the batteries so that you may once again fully charge them (check your user manual). Also...keeping batteries in your pocket or other place close to keys or other metal items will not only drain the charge but in some instances cause the batteries to leak or explode. Be careful!

S9000 camera shows batteries to be discharged, but battery tester shows all four to Duracell copper tops to be fully charged. Any suggestions?

There could be a malfunction of the camera.
When something is blocked in the camera, the electronic will shut down, to prevent extra damage. Sometimes the lens is stuck and won't come out. This could have lots of causes, but it could overheat the motor or bring extra damage to the gears. In those cases the batteries can be drained very quick.
Sure you checked all contacts of the batteries? They should be clean and shiny. Never use a sharp tool to remove oxide or grease from electronic contacts Only use a dry cloth or special contact oil.

My finepix s9000 will not turn on, it clicks a few times and then there is no power on screens or other features

remove the batteries, let it sit for a week or so, then load fresh batteries and it will turn on. Apparantly the auto shut down feature prevent it from turn on until the internal memory is erased. This is a stupid problem that Fuji should fix

Fuji FinePix S9000 battery change clears date/time.


I started having a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix F10 after about 3 1/2 years of problem-free use. Another poster had some really helpful advice which I thought I'd pass on. It seems there is an internal battery or capacitor which basically fails after a while, meaning date/time settings etc are lost when the battery is removed. (Some people claim this is a motherboard/chip problem instead - seems to be contentious!) So the camera is faulty, but the problem can be worked around.

The advice I found, which worked for my camera, was this:

- Turn off camera and leave off for approx 15 seconds before opening battery door.
- Change battery quickly (within a few seconds).
- Close battery door and leave camera off for approx 15 secs before turning back on.

This retained all settings when I tested it multiple times. I imagine it might not work if changing over a totally dead battery though.

Hope it helps!

Initializing picture cards for Fuji FinePix S9000 digital camera

As you have downloaded all the pics to ur computer. Take the card in ur hand, wipe it's copper plates firmly with your thumb, Insert the card in your camera and format it. It should start working. Mine worked.Good Luck


they all do this to save battery power.
I believe the menu has a setting to adjust the time, but my camera is being worked on now and can't confirm this.

It Isn't Working

I just today sent my camera to Fuji to have the same thing repaired. I've read that the on-off switch tends to fail on this camera.Mine is just a few months past warranty, of course!
this is my 3rd Fuji and 1st problem though.
Good Luck.

IS or AS on the S9000

Fuji does not have either, only an AntiBlur mode that favors high shutter speeds to combat both camera shake and action blur. Fuji may be betting that their high ISO capabilities allowing higher usable shutter speeds will make IS or AS an unnecessary feature. In a few weeks when the cameras hit the shelves we will know better how this really pans out.
