AC Adaptors
Consult your instruction manual or get advice from your appropriate Customer Service representative before attempting any change to your PC. FUJIFILM is not liable for the results of any change. See site Terms and Conditions.


1) I am trying to use generic brand AC adapter.
2) Can I use the FUJIFILM AC adapter in a 220v/240v area?
3) Where can I buy the FUJIFILM AC power adapter?


1) I am trying to use generic brand AC adapter?
FUJIFILM recommends customer's use of FUJIFILM AC power adapter for your digital camera because:

  • Most digital cameras require up to 1,500 mA for the AC power adapter, but some generic brand AC adapters do have sufficient capacity.
  • All FUJIFILM AC power adapters are a regulated power supply, and an unregulated power supply may damage your digital camera because the output voltage is not stable.
  • 2) Can I use the FUJIFILM AC adapter in a 220v/240v area?
    AC-5V, AC-3V and AC-DS7 AC power adapters sold in the United States are input 120v only. Do not use them in 220v/240v area. Some new AC power adapters sold in 1999 are the worldwide voltage- type, please check the specification label on the adapter.

    3) Where can I buy the FUJIFILM AC power adapter?
    If you need an AC power adaptor, please call Fuji Photo Film U.S.A. Inc., parts deptartment at 1-800-659-3854. 220v/240v versions are also available.
