Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera ?

On my Fujifilm S3000 camera it eats batteries, and i mean "eats" brand new batteries last a day. Its like its using battery power even though its switched off. What do you think



Answers :

There are different types of devices like these cameras and there are specified batteries that are advisable to be used for these devices.
For example, the xbox 360 controller works with a lot of batteries but they are specified batteries that are guaranteed to work or last longer than the other batteries.
In summary, this device can use a specific kind of battery that may have been licensed by the company to help the battery last longer.
The only resort is for you to go through your manual and see which battery is compatible or the advisable brand of battery that you are expected to use for longevity.
I could have helped you out with this but depending on the area which the camera is designed to be used in, the battery is different.

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

I have Canon power shot S2 IS digital camera.I bought it around 2 years back.Now my camera is showing the sign of "change the batteries" even though the batteries are fully charged and the lens does not come out..When I tried the same batteries on other digicamera they are working fine. Very few times the camera starts working but after taking 2 or 3 pics the low battery sign appears on the screen.I use AA size NiMH Sony batteries. Can you let me know the solution to my issue.

The rechargeable batteries don't work in my Canon Power Shot A540, they are charged, I even checked them on my batterie checker.

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

Handycam suddenly won't turn off. When I remove the battery it turns off ,of course, but when I reinstall the battery it starts up even though it is on off. If I try to record it won't and a C:13:01 shows up on the upper right hand of the screen and is flashing. Window shows 103 minutes of battery power left. It wants to stay in photo mode and won't stay in video mode. It will take photos but it won't video. Basically the on/off/mode ring is not working. Can you help? Thanks, Mike

Hello, I have a Kodak easy share z1275 and has worked well for me for almost 3 years. Used it last week with no problems, has never given me any problems. Suddenly on Saturday, I turn it on to take a picture, lens begins to retract and the camera shuts off, it appears that there is a power supply probelm. I changed batteries, even though the ones I had in it were recently installed, but went ahead and put in new ones, and it will not power on. The blue power indicator light begins to come on

No power I turned the camera on and the lens came out then the screen went blank. I thought the battery may be low even though it was recently charged, so I put it on the charger. The orange charge light did not come on. I removed the battery and checked it with a voltmeter and it was showing 8.4 volts. Everything points to a blown fuse or something like that. Is there a fuse in the camera? Hope you can help Neil Low
