Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A700 Digital Camera ?

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?


Answers :

I bought this type of camera a few months ago.  Instantly I noticed that is wears down batteries.  I would not get to take a lot of photos if I was on a vacation trip.  I have to keep the two batteries on a charger if I wanted to take many photos.  This is disappointing.  I have no solution for you.  However, if someone does have a solution, I, also would like to know it.

My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the charging light links four times and then stops. I last used my camera about 2 months ago and it worked fine. The battery died during the last use and I am trying to charge it for the first time since.


Hi,\015\012It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new batte ... Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

I've re-charged the battery several times longest period of re-cahrge was 18 hrs. When placed in camera battery power only lasts for a minute or 2, then is dead.

My panasonic tz5 has started playing up. The lens moves in & out, will not focus & a message 'please turn camera off and on again' appears. This happens each time I want to use it.

Fuji s9000 problem, it won't turn on with the ac supply at all. The last time I used my camera I put in some rechargeable batteries (new ones) while the camera had the ac adapter connected, I was just seeing if the new batteries had charge on them or not. Well, after a while I came back to my photo booth and my camera had a white screen (lcd) and so I unplugged it at that time thinking maybe it was charging the batteries or something.

Batteries I bought my camera 3 days ago, used it once to take about 6 pictures yesterday, and the batteries went dead. I charged them according to the directions and now when I turn it on it reads a fully charged battery until I try to take a pic, then a message appears reading "battery depleted" and it turns off. It is brand new and only used once, what could it possibly be?

Troubleshooting. I'm currently using the EXILIM EX-Z60/Z60DX CASIO Digital Camera. I recently relocated and when I went to use my camera, I noticed the battery was almost dead. So, I took it home and put it on the charger. Usually, the red light will come on and it will charge, no problem. This time, the red light started blinking. I wasn't sure what that was so I left it on the cradle for about an hour to see if it would still charge. When I put the battery in the camera, my camera wouldn't eve

Each time I remove the battery from my Nikon CoolPix 4300, the clock returns to a default of 2002 (in the LCD window the date shows as 000000. Each time I use the camera I have to reset the clock and date. I left the battery in the camera over night to see if the clock battery would take a charge and maintain the date and time the next time I removed the battery. No such luck. It returns to default.

I probably need more details but, it sound like when you remove the battery to recharge it, the clock loses any power it had. Most people have a second battery. When the first battery begins to lose power, they insert the fully charged battery so the ... Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera

My camera fell down in the water. I didn't put it on until such time that arrived home. My husband opened it and removed the sand from the sides of the camera. It was just basically cleaned. However, everytime I would use it, it will only last for a few minutes then it would say "Battery empty".

Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.
