The batteries were drained in my FinePix S7000 camera while the camera was not in use. A CompactFlash card and fresh batteries were installed in the camera. The camera was turned OFF. The next day, the batteries were too weak to operate the camera.

Re: The batteries were drained in my FinePix S7000 camera...
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.

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.
There is no internal battery. When the batteries become discharged or removed, the camera retains the date/time settings for about 24 hours. Most people have backup batteries fully charged so when one set is low in the camera, they can make the change quickly.
remove the xdcard and use compact flash. also put camera in set mode and run the battery drain function. it seems to reset the battery voltage meter. clean batery contacts with q-tip and rubbing alcohol. worked for me
What kind of batteries are you using? It's a well-known fact that for instance normal alkaline batteries run flat in no time in these kinds of cameras. You'd better use powerful NiMH batteries, 2,000 mAh or above and a charger which does the job in let's say 1 hour or so. Also get an extra set of batteries. You'll never regret you bought it!
