Having problems with your Fuji Digital Cameras ?

I have just replaced the batteries but the camera is not powering up. When I switch on there is a slight sound as though it's going to star but then nothing. Does the camera have other batteries for background functions or is there a capacitor that is malfunctioning?


Answers :

Nope, no hidden batteries, but, the problem is likely battery related. Make sure\015\012that\015\012you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are\015\012fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion\015\012on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full\015\012battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy\015\012corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand\015\012paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery\015\012compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and\015\012reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about\015\01290% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

I've owned this camera Nikon F65 for a few years and it was working perfectly, but I haven't used it for the past year or so and now it just stopped working! I put fresh batteries in, lights come on and all functions are displayed ok, but the shutter isn't releasing and it isn't taking any pictures as if all the functions are disabled, no use pressing the shutter as nothing happens.

"function" button Can anyone tell me what the "function" button does? So far, it activates nothing. I am assuming that it works if hooked to computer via serial/parallel cable. (I do not have the cable or manual) Am I correct? Also, how does one move the pointer that is in the top window? How does this camera do in regard to battery usage?
