Having problems with your Fuji Finepix S5800 Digital Camera ?

My Fuji Finepix S5800 tells me my brand new batteries are flat.

\015 I have had my finepix S5800 for about 18 months. The 4 AA batteries used to last for months. I use rechargeables. Now when I put in new batteries, even brand new ones, the red flat battery light flashes and I can only take 1 or 2 pics before it turns itself off. Can I fix it?\015

Answers :

It sounds like you have bad batteries. I have had rechargeables that have suddenly done the same thing. I have learned that buying really cheap ones doesn't work out. If you buy a good branded set, I think you will find that they are much better. :)

Low battery I have a FinePix S9500 digital camera which is in great condition (virtually brand new) but is basically useless. Despite using the appropriate fully charged batteries, the display constantly indicates low battery. I manage to get out one or two shots and then it shuts down altogether. This is very frustrating as you cannot count on the camera working at all. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Or is there a particular brand of battery that works for this model.

I need a new BATTERY DOOR for my Fuji Finepix S7000. I tried to order just the door from numerous sources & they could not get it (because Fuji insists on me sending my entire camera to them)!

Battery life My fuji Finepix s3000 does not work for more than a few minutes running time on fresh batteries. I just bought new batteries/charger to confirm this.

My Fuji A700 simply eats up batteries,it has got to a point where I am only able to download 20 pictures with a BRAND NEW SET OF BATTERIES. It was as consumptive with rechargeable versions.
