Default Power Problems with S602

Hi,

I got my S602 on Friday. In the beginning I had no problems but lately it stops working every time I switch to picture taking mode.
Even inserting new batteries doesnt help. Looks like its totally powerless. Green Light is out, the LCDs are black.

Does anyone know the reason? Am I doing any mistake?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Chris Gruening, Cologne, Germany

Sounds simple BUT.
1. Are the batts in the right way round (I find the batt compartment labelling confusing.
2. Are you using big 1800mAh+ Nimh batts? I never tried my dry batts.
3. Is the smart card installed, formatted and OK?
4. Can you borrow and try a mains power unit?

The batts work in viewing mode but power goes off when switching to picture taking mode.
Right now I'm using simple oneway batts, maybe the wrong kind?

Well, i got the solution.
The batts where rubbish even they where new. I bought some expensive Li-Batteries and now everything works fine.

Thanx voxmagna for your reply

Chris

I'm running out of ideas. Assuming you've turned off the thirsty lcd, you should have enough bat power to take pics. The first thing happening when switching from preview to pic taking mode is the lens extends. If the lens is jammed, or doesn't extend after a timeout, I suspect the cam shuts down. There was a recent post about a 602 with a stuck lens. The lens is vulnerable until you buy that cheaper, leather, non-Fuji case. Is this any help? Incidentally, I've wondered why I have to move through the preview setting everytime to take a pic, increasing switch wear, when I don't preview that often.
