Question about FUJIFILM Cameras

Why won't my Fujifilm Finepix S7000 turn on, even after I put new batteries in?

Reset button or sequence needed, perhaps?

Verify batteries are fresh and of correct type, batteries and terminals are clean. If a rechargeable, verify battery and charger are good. Otherwise, camera may need servicing.

The CompactFlash card may have caused the batteries to drain. Some solid state CompactFlash cards consume power while inserted in the FinePix S7000 even if the camera is turned OFF. Fujifilm recommends removing the CompactFlash card when the camera is not in use. Microdrives and xD-Picture Cards do not exhibit this problem.

SOURCE: wont turn on

Only use Ni-MH or AA-size alkaline batteries. Do not use Ni-Cd (nickel-cadmium) because the heat emitted can damage the camera.

I would suggest using e2 batteries from Energizer.

In the manual, on page 80 there is a description and procedure for discharging Ni-MH batteries (but NOT regular batteries, so don't do this with regular alkaline batteries) AND do not do this when the external power is connected.

Moving on... The discharging of the batteries procedure should happen when:

  • the batteries last for a short time after being charged normally
  • the batteries have not been used for a long period
  • the batteries are new.
Follow these instructions:
  1. Press the menu/OK button to display the menu on the LCD monitor
  2. Press the "left" or "right" on the pad to select "SET" OPTION and then press "up" or "down" to select "SET-UP".
  3. Press the "MENU/OK" button to dipslay the "SET-UP" screen.
  4. Press "right" or "left" to move to option 5 and then press "up" or "down" to select "DISCHARGE".
  5. Press "right"
  6. Press "left" or "right" to select "OK".
  7. Press the "MENU/OK" button.
The screen changes and discharging begins. When the battery level indicator blinks red and discharging ends, the camera turns off.

Remember to not have the camera external battery plugged in so the battery can discharge on it's own.

Then, at this point, recharge the battery using the external battery charger. This helps to "renew" the battery. This is because Ni-MH batteries will remember the last place where they recharged, and too many times, the memory "bookmark" gets marked to low and has to be reset, done by the recharge.

It may be necessary to repeat these steps multiple times. This effect is not because the batteries are deffective. This is a normal side-effect of Ni-MH. This is the reason the camera comes with a discharge feature.

I the batteries are old and don't function even after performing the discharge procedure as part of the normal operation of the camera (like of the year or two), then the batteries may have reached the end of their service life.

Hope this helps, if so, please rate FixYa! ThankYa!

Usually the filename is how they are sorted, i.e., 001.jpg, 002.jpg, 003.jpg.... Check on the camera's setup menu to see what method is being used for file naming (for instance, it may be organizing based on date stamp, instead...).

The S700 as it came from the factory CANNOT use a 4 gig card. You must go to the Fuji USA website and download the firmware update. You will need to have the program that came with the camera installed, and the cable that also came with the camera. Make sure that you have fresh batteries in the camera. Instructions are on the Fuji website along with the download for the firmware. You are actually going to "flash" the firmware in the camera just as if you were doing a BIOS flash in your computer. Personally, I only use smaller cards and remove the pics soon after I take them. A 2 gig card will hold about 150 full rez pics. Get them out of the camera....don't save them forever on the card!

My s7000 batterries do not last very long i am wondering if something is draining them down


PRESS RELEASE
Release Date: 12 January 2004


Fujifilm today announced that a number of early FinePix S7000 Zoom digital cameras may experience battery power depletion when used with some CompactFlash™ memory cards.

This fault does not occur when the S7000 is used with either an xD-Picture Card™ or a Microdrive™, nor does it occur in any other Fujifilm products that offer a CompactFlash™ storage facility, such as the FinePix S2 Pro, S602, S602 Pro or M603.

Cameras with serial numbers above 34L60001 (inclusive) were produced after 15 December 2003 and therefore will definitely not experience this battery drain problem.

In the short term, the problem can be avoided by unloading then re-loading the batteries just after the camera is switched off. The camera's power supply will then perform normally.

I have a "S7000 Finepix Fujifilm' camera and it


Okay I hope you have found a fix for your problem but if not what I suspect has happened is the Focus mode Selector has been shifted to a manual mode. Page 21 of your manual here is a screen shot of the selector switch

My niece owns a finepix fujifilm camera that will not come on even after she charges her battery. She thinks it maybe the charger thats causing the problem. What other ways can she charge her camera if the...


Non..You will have to replace the charger or at leat have it checked. Find someone with a multimeter ( electronics shop) they will surely test it for you free.

If it is not the charger then try cleaning the battery terminals inside the camera to ensure good contact or even a NEW battery as this one may have reached its life expectancy

My S7000 has the message "card not initialized"


The S7000 cannot handle cards larger than 2GB.
If you need 4GB you can also fit a 2GB type 2 compact flash card which is the american standard.
For europe you will get a type 1 card this will also fit it is just slightly thinner.

Lense stuck in out position


Hi. If your camera is turning on with the lens stuck out. Turn the camera on, and without turning it off, open the battery door, and take the batteries out. Leave it for about 1-2 minutes and try again. This process is call power reset. Usually works. Good Luck.
