1. I assume you are probably using AA NiMH rechargeable batteries. One of them could have gone bad.
2. If the adapter you are using is rated at less than 2 amps at 3 volts, it may not be putting out enough power.
3. Or you could have a short circuit in the electronics part of the camera.
So......you need to do one more thing before we really know which of the above is true.
Go and buy two Alkaline AA batteries.
Put them in the camera and see if it works.
If it does, then Possibilties 1 and 2 are likely true.
If it does not, then Possibility 3 is most likely.
That means it is time to lay the ol' 1 megapixel camera to rest and look for a new one.
Has anyone experienced trouble with the Fuji Finepix A101 not holding power? My camera no longer will stay on with either battery or adapter. It will power up momentarily, then shut back down as it attempts to illuminate the LCD screen. Very rarely, it will reach the screen mode, but usually, it shuts off way before then.
Anybody have any ideas on this one? Thanks.
