Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S9000 Zoom Digital Camera ?

Fuji Finepix S9500 - Rapid battery discharge

\015 Basically, the camera shows the low battery life indicator after around five to ten shots, even though the batteries are brand new. I've tried out multiple different types of batteries and the end result was always the same, if it did not, in fact, worsen in time. For a while it let me shoot one to two photos before it showed the indicator again, and went dead. All it required was a restart though, and I could rinse and repeat. Eventually it just started showing it as I turn it on. Interesting, however, is that it works just fine when I want to review pictures already taken, and I can do it for as long as I want without a glitch.The problem started when I was taking pictures at a fossil display in a rather dark hall, without a flash though. I tried setting various settings such as ISO, shutter speed and aperture and others to various settings to see if it would help, all to no avail.I'm rather new to photography so I've absolutely no idea as to what may be causing this, or if it's a hardware or software related issue, so I'm asking if anyone has any idea as to why this keeps occurring?\015

Answers :

I had exactly the same problem with mine. It aint the batteries at all. What you propably have is a virus on your memory card (propably the boha virus). reformatting the memory card should do the trick. Very important is to get the source of the virus. If its on your camera it will propably be on your pc as well. Most antivirus software cant delete it, as it "respawns" automatically. the best way so far is to restart pc in safe mode(by keeping f8 in while pc starts( u have to be in safe mode to do this). then open any folder,, and go to "tools" ... "folder options" Click on 'view" and "tick" "show hidden files and folders".
\015\012Then go to your C: drive and look at the files inside there. if u see "hidden folders" there with names like boha or vidi etc your pc is infected. delete all the hidden folders except "recycler; MSOCache and System volume information" ( i can remember the exact names but the virus files should be something like "vidi" "boh" or "boha" and "iagjh" or something like that).
\015\012Reboot pc afterwards and everything should be fine.
When you say different type... are you refering to the brand or the Milli Amper Hours?
\015\0122500 mAh minimum I suggest....
\015\012NiMH workes for me

I have a Fuji Finepix F45 camera. After taking a photo the screen shows a badly blurred image. Same applies if I load the memory card into my PC. The image has wavy lines.

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)! This repair would take 60 seconds IF I could just get a door....I finally sent the entire camera to Fuji & they charged me over $100. Obviously the door is flimsy, but I love the camera. Would like to order the door ONLY (and maybe even a spare for future similar problem) Thanx!

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. Is there some kind of short circuit within the camera? Is this a known problem? I've hardly used the camera (partly due to the fact that it always has dead batteries in it).

I have a Fuji FinePix A345. It is out of warranty. I put freshly-charged batteries in, take one or two pics, then get a low batter-reading, followed by the camera shutting off power. I took batteries out, checked them on a battery tester, and they both still had a full charge (2500 mAh), but camera won't even turn on. I was just reading consumer reviews on the A345 advertising page. Apparently this model can be a real lemon. Anything I can do to fix the camera? Or do I just toss it and bu
