Finepix S9000 won't turn on with fully charged batteries
\015 Two days ago my camera suddenly started showing a low battery icon within minutes of inserting fully charged NiMH batteries. Sometimes it lets me take a few pictures; more often it shuts down within seconds. This happens with both sets of batteries I've alternated successfully for a long time. With a new set of fully charged batteries, the camera won't even turn on or make any sound. Yet those new batteries work with my portable CD player, so it doesn't seem like the problem is with the batteries!I've cleaned all the battery contact points with a rubber eraser. No change.I don't know if this is related to something else that happened JUST BEFORE this problem appeared. I had downloaded my images as always with a universal card reader connected to my computer via USB. When I reinserted the 1gb xD picture card in the camera, I got a "card not initialised" message. This had never happened before, and on putting the card back into the card reader, the computer immediately accessed all the images which were still on it. The camera would not re-format the card. Although I was able to navigate through the menus to the formatting command, the Menu/OK button would not respond. The only thing I WAS able to do was reset the date and time in the camera, but I could do nothing with the card. Finally in desperation I put the picture card back in the card reader/computer and opened its window. It showed some Macintosh files (e.g. "Trashes"), even though I actually downloaded the images by accessing the card reader through my Windows "Parallels Desktop" software on my MacBook [however, the Mac had TRIED to download the images when I first inserted the card in the reader, before I remembered I should have enabled the card reader device in Parallels before inserting the picture card in the reader. I had immediately closed down the iPhotos program without downloading the images into the Mac, but that must have been when those little files were put on my picture card.] What I did, trying to solve the problem with the card, was to delete those Mac files (there were two of them, I believe), and to my relief, when I put the card back into the camera, it worked again. I was able to erase all the images within the camera, as I've always done, and to take pictures again.But shortly after that, the camera told me I had low batteries, which soon ran out, and I've had the problem described above, ever since.To complicate matters, though, tonight I tried inserting the 512mb picture card from my Fujifilm F700 camera into the S9000, and the same battery problems still occurred.So I don't really know if the two problems are related or merely an amazing coincidence. I have tried four sets of fully charged rechargeable NiMH batteries with it: with the original two sets the camera comes on briefly, shows "battery low" and then shuts off after a few seconds. With another set that I usually use in another digital device, the camera makes a faint "click" but won't turn on. With the brand-new set just bought today and charged up, the camera doesn't even make a click. NOTE: I just now inserted a new set of alkaline AA batteries (which I've never used with this camera), and the camera insisted I reset the date and time (something I've never normally had to do when changing batteries). I left it on for three minutes and took a few pictures, and the "battery low" icon did not appear. I don't know how long these batteries will last, in use -- will try it tomorrow. But on inserting the rechargeables again, the same problem recurred.I use my camera constantly on a semi-professional basis. To make matters worse, my Finepix F700 just last week started putting an uneven white border around all the photos. So I've gone from two good working cameras to none, in a matter of days, and neither camera has been dropped or subjected to any damaging conditions! I'm feeling desperate, and this problem seems to weird for you to be able to sort out by e-mail, but I don't know where else to turn. So thanks for any advice you can give me.Warm regards,Lethea Erz in rural New Zealand\015
Stoppa dina batterier i en ficklampa och låt den lysa tills den slocknar. Då är batterierna klara för en ny uppladdning. Detta oavsett om det är NiCd eller NiMH.
I have the exactly same problem on my E550, I also use AC adapter to\015\012test it, it works without any question, the conclusion I got focus on\015\012the circuit of E550, may be some parts was old enough that they need\015\012more Amp. to work, in other word, batteries won't provide enough juice\015\012to make them work correctly even you use new batteries. This is the\015\012issue regarding the quality of E550, Fujifilm should responsible for\015\012this, and we need sue fujifilm on this particular issue

I purchased a Fujifilm finepix Z20fd camera from target last december.

After sliding the front back and forth a few times I left it in the "on" position and took out the battery and put it back in. It came on, but would not flash. Also I was able to close the slider, but the camera stayed on until I took out the
