Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera ?

When I change batteries I loose date/time etc.

\015 When I change batteries I loose the date/time and other settings, even if the batteries were not dead and I do it within a few seconds. Is there another battery built into the camera? (the instructions say I should have several hours to make the change, without losing the stttings)Peter.\015

Answers :

There isn't another battery built into it. From what I undersatnd once you have placed batteries into the camera or connected the AC adaptor into the camera for 2 hours the camera will retain the date/time settings for 6 hours.

\015\012If they haven't been in the camera for two hours and you remove them the camera will loose the settings. If they have been in the camera for over two hours the camera will keep the settings for 6 hours. This leads me to think that a capacitor on the board inside the camera charges up for two hours and then slowly discharges over 6. Hope this helps.

No power I can't get my camera to turn on...yes I've charged, changed, etc. the battery...nothing happens. It's only 9 months old and I had just shot a birthday party the day before.

Both your camera and the battery have a warranty, so I would call Canon and they may replace your battery out of goodwill even though it has been more than 30 days, if you provide your proof of purchase, this is always a possibility...to avoid having ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

I have had my S9600 for 4 years, for most of that time, when i changed the batteries, all my settings remained the same. Now, when i change the batteries, every setting has returned to factory standard (stupid beeps and whirring noises, no date etc) and i have to reset everything. The user manual has no mention of an internal battery, but i figure there must be one and it now needs replacing. How do I do this?

When I turn on my Nikon coolpix S210, it gives me a lens error prompt. I have read posts on another website and it said everything from hold the lens out by force to turn the lens slightly clockwise while it is out to rap it slightly a few times, to changing battery to taking the camera apart. Short of taking the camera apart, I have tried them all. Nothing works. I just put alot of money into the camera buying extra picture cards, batteries, etc. NOW IT WON'T WORK! And there doesn't s

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?


There is no internal battery. When the batteries become discharged or removed, the camera retains the date/time settings for about 24 hours. Most people have backup batteries fully charged so when one set is low in the camera, they can make the chang ... Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

I own a D90 and of late have had problem getting the shutter to actually fire and take a photo at times. It will work sometimes and not at others. I have tried changing the memory card - putting it on manual etc but still won't work. The battery is fully charged. It occasionally comes up with an r05 and r21 code in the R lower box and a flashing F at the top R when this seems to happen. I haven't played with the settings all that much - just since this has begun happening. Can you make any sugge


The r codes you mention are related to speeds of buffering information onto the memory card. A high ISO NR setting on the camera has a huge impact.... the cross over point is 800 ISO. If you have it on, and are on 800 or over, the remaining buffer ca ... Nikon Digital Cameras
