Customer Question

After replacing new batteries in my Fujifilm Finepix S and attemping to turn it on to review the pictures it contained, I noticed a flash, even though the flash was closed, and it will not turn on. Is this a common occurrence?

Hi there and welcome

Common for me as I deal with this cameras problems all day.

There can me a couple of reasons for it.

First, to be sure, you confirmed the batteries are working, even though they are new, correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did not confirm, just checked them out in another device, and found they were dead. So much for buying "bargain batteries."

yes, always get better quality batteries

Is the camera working with new working batteries?
