USB charging with X-T3 firmware v4.00

Since the v4.00 update, my X-T3 no longer charges when plugged into a power supply via USB (USB-C PD power supply). No green light on the back. When the camera power is on, it shows the icon for external power on the display. Is that different from anyone else's observed behavior? I didn't see a setting that would affect it.

I noticed that my camera does properly charge from a battery pack with usb-c output. So it must have something to do with the power supply characteristics. I’ll have to try a few things to see what causes the issue.

Good Morning,  I have the same issue using the Apple USB-C adapter.  Other USB-C adapters work to charge, but these adapters output at a lower voltage than the Apple charger.  Any updates?  I use the camera plugged into power most of the time (Live streaming, etc).  Thanks in advance!

i think it might be fixed in the next firmware update ,as far as i understood from what you were saying . it's a communication issue between the charger and camera (usb c-pd tech chargers communicate with device to know the required charge etc... that's how it's able to charge various devices with different voltage specifications ,it's a smart charger basically . so this issue is related to software and i hope it will be fixed in the next firmware update . more people report this issue ,the faster it get's fixed ,because fujifilm needs feedback . so keep sending feedback and report this in other forums too ,so it will get noticed faster and it will be fixed faster. since it affects all apple chargers compatibility with xt-3 with new firmware . i wish you good luck in getting the new update which fix this ASAP , have a nice day . if i get something ,i'll inform you soon !

 

it maybe the software issue on the apple's part , since other devices which use to work with apple chargers is not working now check this article (the article says that apple updated their pd chip firmware ,which led to compatibility issue with devices where it's used or connected to).  i hope this helps . have a nice day !

Thank you for the response and explanation, really appreciate it.  Here's hoping the next firmware update addresses this issue.  One positive: I think power is still being delivered while I'm Livestreaming, the battery doesn't seem to discharge while plugged in and in use.  It just doesn't charge when the camera is switched off.  Hope that makes sense.

Again, thank you for taking the time to reply.  Cheers!

Stay happy always ! . Also try usb-pd Powerbanks ,it might work flawlessly to charge while the camera is switched off , until this issue is solved in the next firmware update . have a nice day !

    • I've tried a number of lens hoods, but they all have the disadvantage of not being able to fit the lens cap when not in use. This one is specifically designed to take the standard lens cap and even has a soft rubber ring to ensure a snug fit. Very nicely made in anodised aluminium. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252370651839?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 (not connected to seller)
    • Firmware 2.10. Newly formatted sd card. And yes, I've taken a few shots. Menu Set up - Save Data Set-Up - Select Folder - "Create New Folder" is grayed out. So I cannot create a new folder. I'd like to create folders so I can store images by date. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?
    • If I put my X-S10 on a table (or any other stable surface), focus on subject and set an exposure the will require more than 1 second of exposure (doesn't matter how many, just make sure that the desired exposure will be more than 1 second), set a timer for 2 seconds and take a shot and the IBIS is set to mode 2 (Shooting only), the shot comes out completely blurry, just like if I hand held the camera (which I didn't). I repeat the EXACT same steps but this time I set IBIS to mode 1 (Continuous) - shot is tack sharp. Why? I know that IBIS should be disabled if the camera is on a tripod or any other stable surface, my question is why this happens only in mode 2 and not in mode 1 as well?
    • Ah a flick of the 'Auto' lever has fixed it! Why do they have to make things so obscure! If it said in the manual 'ES not available in Auto mode' that would have made life so much easier! Anyway, thanks for your help @Greybeard!
