Hi recently bought a fujiilm ax200 and i used regular Duracell batteries just to test out the camera. Then I purchased rechargeable batteries and the camera for working fine for the five minutes i took photos with it. When trying to upload the photos onto the computer the camera would not turn on.

My camera got soaked in saltwater and sand last night. In the morning the camera worked perfectly fine until i took it home and plugged it into my laptop using the usb link cable as i normally do.

My photos always upload to my MAC automatically when I plug the camera into the computer. Today, however, the camera comes on, the screen comes on the camera and it says "busy," the screen then goes black, a red light in the bottom right hand corner of the back of the camera begins to flash, and eventually it even stops. I did re-charge the battery and it still did the same thing. Do you have any idea what is going on?

Suddenly, after taking some photos the camera will light up to the Fujifilm start window, and no further, then blacks out. It will not shut off with the power button, nor retract and close the lens even when I pull the battery out. I have tried two batteries. When I plugged the camera into the laptop, the lens retracted. Any ideas on what may be the issue?
The main board is bad. Was it recently dropped? If so, then the board might have been damaged - it's not worth fixing. When a camera is dropped it's like a car getting into a major collision - you'll have other problems later. As long as the memory c ... Fuji FinePix J10 Digital Camera

Will the battery in my fuji finepix f470 charge when the camera is connected to my laptop (via camera usb used to get the photos) or do I have to use the charger that came with it and plug it into the wall.
The camera will not charge through the USB. In fact connecting the camera to a computer drains the battery faster, since the camera has to expend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). See page 10 of ... Fuji FinePix F470 Digital Camera

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger. Left the unit plugged in over night. The battery did not charge. This morning plugged the camera into a lap top computer using the supplied "USB" cable. Checked after 5 hours and found that the battery still does not seem to accept the charge.
