Question about FUJIFILM Cameras
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:
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!
