Question about FUJIFILM Cameras
Battery is okay and inserted correctly. Push the on off button and nothing happens
Posted by Anonymous on
Make sure battery is actually charged and charger is not faulty. Try a different battery? Make sure contacts on battery and camera are clean. If the camera still will not start, it may need to be serviced.

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!

Fuse F351 has possibly blown on the board. It is a 2.5A 32v UL type surfacemount fuse which is soldered to the board. The fuse has a coded letter on it for identification. Recomend you find someone who knows electronics to repair

For clarification, how many years that you have the camera. Did you already changed for a new battery? Is there any incidents that you dropped the unit?
First make sure that you properly inserted the battery, check the electronic contact for any dirt/rust on the battery and to the tray.
Battery life can be the issue here, if you have not yet change the battery try to change or use new battery. In some cases like this battery cannot hold anymore power when you try to charge it.
It defends how frequent you use the camera, as long as you use it it will also shortened the battery life.
Let me know here again for further more assistance.
Thank you for using fixya.
