Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera ?

The camera functions great. After a very short time the batteries drain. Is this a common problem? Fixable for a cost less than the replacement cost of the camera?


Answers :

Yes. and Yes. I am guessing in the dark. I am assuming that your digital camera takes rechargeable batteries? If it does, after so many times you charge you battery they do have a tendency to go bad.

\015\012There are many website out there that will sell you a battery for that camera, but becarful some will sell you refurbish battery. To be on the safe side I would go to the manufactor of the camera website first to see what a new battery would you there.
I had this problem after using the DISCHARGE RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES function. I think what happened is the camera automatically powered off before the discharge was complete and it got stuck in a loop so it just kept discharging all my batteries all the time. To fix it, I opened >MENU>SET-UP>AUTO POWER OFF and changed it from 2 MINUTES to OFF then I ran the DISCHARGE RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES utility again and made sure that the discharge actually succeeded.

Hope this works for you, too.

Battery light blinking red when plugged into charger. I have already bought a replacement battery for this camera at my own cost. Every year this happens. I would either like a new battery (not at my cost) or a camera replacement that doesn't run through batteries once a year. I have had a cheaper Canon camera for over 5 years and this hasn't happened once yet...is there a problem with the Casio Exilim Z75 models that is not being publicized? Thanks in advance.


I have had the same issue 3 times now. If you call Casio they will replace the battery twice. The third time they will have you send the camera in to check for manufacturing issues. They claim they have fixed the problem, but everytime I get a new ba ... Casio Exilim EXZ75 Digital Camera

Battery loss why have you not responded to the battery loss problem? I believe that the FE-310 has a major issue with battery retention. I think you need to replace these cameras. I have spend a lot of money on batteries. I have owned olympus cameras before and never encountered a problem such as this. Very costly problem at that!!!

I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.


Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

I have continuously had battery problems with my Nikon CoolPix L18; after shipping back to Nikon I was informed that there was not a problem.

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this model and how easy it is to get sorted. I have used rechargeable batteries since the camera was new (approx 3 yrs) and have tested the batteries as V.good. So i'm assuming that the problem is with the camera somewhere. Do you think if i reset the camera in the menu that would cure the problem , or

Twice recently, I ordered an OEM battery model LI-42B on-line, but both times, after fully charging the battery, the camera does not operate properly with the replacement battery. Once the camera would not turn on, the other time I was able to take only 2 pictures, then the camera would not retract the lens. Have other people had similar problems with OEM batteries? How can I be sure to get a battery that will work with the camera? My camera model is Olympus Stylus 7010 12 megapixel.

My Nikon coolpix camera lost it's charge very quickly after recharging the battery. I replaced the battery. The problem still exists with a brand new battery. What could be causing the camera to drain the battery? What other problem could it be?

Batteries need replaced constantly. I am using 2 AA alkaline as instructed. As soon as I put them in it says batteries are low and shuts off. This is happening with all brands of new batteries.

Replacement Battery I have a problem in that I want to have a spare battery for the MV300 Microtek Digital Camera, but I' unsure whether I can buy on that is over the 700mAh recommended.

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 ?
