Having problems with your Fuji FinePix 1300 Digital Camera ?

Finepix 1300 just quits, will not power up with new batteries

\015 It worked fine, took a picture, then went dead on me. Change batteries then tried to power up with no results. Used 3 different batteries set with same result.....Is this built-in obsolescence ?\015

Answers :

MIne's doing the same thing. I've had this problem on and off ever since I bought the camera.

I think they had a defective control chip from the factory and there's no excuse for them to have released these cameras for sale with this problem.

The problem evidently stems from the stupid way they power up the camera. The switch is basically a momentary switch that turns the camera either on or off and the chip then recognizes what the operator intent is by changing whatever state the camera happens to be in (if it's of then it turns it on and vice-versa).

The chip will also turn the camera off if it hasn't been operated after a set time and theis is also the reason that the camera will run down the baterries if it hasn't been operated...there is always a slight drain on the batteries even if it's turned off.

So to answer your question, this isn't built-in obsolescence, it's defective design.

I will never own another Fugi product.

No Power Battery needed charging, charged it, placed in the camera as usual,s till no power. Just brought a new battery with the hope that the battery is faulty or past it's sell by...

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

My Sigma SD9 rapidly drains battery power; and I don't mean over a short period of time, but over a few minutes. Regardless of new or fresh rechargeable batteries, the drainage is frustratingly consistent. Have had the camera quit responding regardless of 3 sets of AA rechargeables, or non-rechargeables with more than 3/4 capacity left installed within 45 minutes of my last attempt to use this camera at a Botanical garden close to where I live. Other than junk it is there a way to solve this
