S5000 will not work batteries good - Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Answers :

Hello dlhornik

There are many possible reasons why a camera would go dead. The most obvious option would be the battery , but you say they are functional.

Firstly , open the battery compartment and look under the door. There should be a metal strip that bridges the two pairs of batteries. To test if the terminals are making contact with the battery , do the following.

Wet you finger with some water , not enough to make a drop. Then rub a tiny bit of water on both the positive and negative sides of the battery's on the side that is visible. Just enough so it is noticeable.
Close the battery compartment and open it again. Now look on the contact strip if a speck of water has transferred. If it has , this is not your problem. If it does not transfer the water (mostly happens on the negative contacts side) , use a small pliers and gently extend the the strip away from the door to enable it to once again contact the battery. Contact me if you want me to guide you through this step by step. Repeat this step two or three times if you are not sure.

If this does not work , observe the following and get back to me with the information.

When you turn on your camera , listen closely. Do you hear any sounds coming from the unit?

Does the access light do anything when turning on the camera?

Is there any lens movement?

What were you doing the last time you used your camera?

Please respond to these questions to enable me to further assist you.

Kind Regards
Most cameras that allow the use of AA size batteries can have this same problem especially if the camera is designed to work with 1.2V Rechargeable batteries.

The problem lies in the extra voltage that normal Alkaline 1.5V batteries give the camera. If two are installed then this can be over 0.6V which can cause problems with the internal circuitry.

Most Camera manufacturers have solved this be designing there own size ,shape, Voltage and mAh to avoid inserting the wrong battery of the correct physical size.

Popular types of dry cell rechargeable cell are Lithium polymer (Li Polymer); Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cadmium); Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH);

NOTE: If it says that you must use a particular chemical mix of rechargeable battery this must be the type you use as each can carries a different voltage.

I have a Fuji Finepix S7000 digital camera. I works fine, but, when the batteries get discharged, the camera looses all the "setup" info (date, time, etc...)... Is there an internal battery or something else I should get replaced?

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one.

Low battery I have a FinePix S9500 digital camera which is in great condition (virtually brand new) but is basically useless.
