Question about Fuji FinePix A700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

    I am having the same battery problem with my A700. It began from the first day of purchase. Fortunately I purchased a warranty, and was able to take it back. The clerk had no idea why this was happening, and we tried switching out with regular non-rechargable batteries right off the store shelves. Same thing happened. His remedy was to give me a new camera. It worked fine for TWO days and the same thing happens with this one. It's so frustrating to know that the money you spend for something is wasted.

I bought this type of camera a few months ago.  Instantly I noticed that is wears down batteries.  I would not get to take a lot of photos if I was on a vacation trip.  I have to keep the two batteries on a charger if I wanted to take many photos.  This is disappointing.  I have no solution for you.  However, if someone does have a solution, I, also would like to know it.

Battery life-I put new batteries in and it lasted less than 30 minutes-maybe 20 pics before the camera stated replace batteries. Is there a reset-


If you are using alkaline batteries, you should switch to rechargeable NiMH batteries. I highly recommend the Sanyo Eneloop products. You should be able to get 300 to 400 shots before you need to recharge. Get two sets of four AA Eneloop batteries. Don't mix them. They hold their charge for a year and can be recharged a thousand times.

The camera(Fujifilm Finepix AX 250) says that the life of brand new, never used LR6 AA Alkaline batteries is gone in 10 min-1hour, when the batteries have plenty of life left. The camera takes 2 AA LR6...


A search of the Fujifilm website provided no answers. Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Also, I would switch to 3 or 4 sets of rechargeable batteries. That way, you always have a fresh set ready and you'll save money in the long run.

When i take a picture, press te button, the camera lens goes back into camera and shuts off, why?


Normally an indication of flat batteries. Low batteries do the same. Even bad quality batteries will do this. You should get 2 AA Lithium which will last a long time but when ready to go will die instantly.

I have been use sony cycle Energy Rechargable batteries AA 2000mAh. They are properly charging. But now I'am purchased another sony cycle Energy Reechargable batteries AA 3000mAh. But they are no charging...


It's likely your charger. You probably own a "fast charger" but it's also probably designed for your lower mAh power batteries. The charger does not understand the power difference of your newer high-capacity battery, thus it is automatically stopping the charge before completion sensing something is wrong. You'll need to either purchase a newer charger, clearly stated capable of charging 3000mAh batteries. An alternative is to use an older "trickle" charger (one of those that charges at very low power slowly overnight). These don't automatically turn off when the battery reaches full charge, thus will charge your battery.

Flat Batteries


I've turned many of my customers into users of the Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries. Many people who have been ready to throw their camera away find the Energizers fix all their problems. Make sure to get the Energizer Ultimate Lithiums, as there are some lower output Energizers available too.

S9500 : rapid battery discharge


Check your focus control on the left side of the camera is not set to "continual focus" CF, as this will constantly adjust focus and run your battery down quickly.

Also NiCd batteries are not very useful -use Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMh) which last longer and don't suffer from memory effects. These batteries don't reach full capacity until after a number of recharge/drain cycles.
