Introduction

This should be a fairly easy fix, since the only tool you need is a Phillips #000 screwdriver. There are no safety risks in this process, as long as you keep the camera turned off. The battery contact could have been damaged when the camera was dropped, or if the camera was not kept in a cool, clean, indoor environment. To prevent further damage to battery contact, only use the proper batteries from Fujifilm, and take caution to prevent battery leaks. Remove battery when the camera is not being used for long periods of time.
