Customer Question

I have a finepix 4900X which has been in drawer for a few years.
Recently wanted to use so bought new batteries - energiser FLNP80.
Camera reluctant to work for more than a few seconds.
Batteries now flat and cannot recharge via camera, using original charger unit.
Is it possible to get back to fully working at reasonable cost please.
Realise all at a distance, but advice would be appreciated to avoid wasting time on a dream.

Just to check Barry, have you tried other batteries to be sure the issue was not with the Batteries?

Please let me know
