Question about Fuji FinePix 2800 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery corrosion I had not used my camera in about 2 months and never thought of taking out the batteries. When I tried to use it,,,I thought it just needed new batteries because it was turning on for a few seconds then shutting itself off. I opened the battery door and found that the batteries were super corroded. I was advised to use elecrical contact cleaner to clean up the corrosion and after doing so,,,it still will only turn on for maybe a couple seconds and then shuts off. What more can I do to salvage this camera?

Carry on cleaning the contacts -perhaps a little abrasive cleaning with a pencil eraser- may do it.

try a different battery or use an external charger.... the battery could be faulty, or the camera charge function could be faulty.... a different battery will help you decide where the problem is.

Might be the camera's battery terminals, not the battery itself. Take a qtip and some isopropyl aclohol and clean the terminals in the battery well of camera.

Sigma EF-530 DG ST - not working, on test or camera all 6 LED lights displaying. Any thoughts?


I don’t usually play with flash that isn’t built in- I prefer natural light, but...if this were me I would: A) take very fine sandpaper and very lightly go one time over all contacts for the flash and camera. B) I would also see if my button batteries in my camera needed changing. As I remember they have something to do with recognizing lenses and flash attachments. C) I would also make sure the batteries in the flash, although changed, were making proper contact with the battery terminals and might also lightly sand those as well since the flash is little used.

Blank Screen and faulty shutter blades


I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.
