Question about Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD mostly white but photos OK after camera dropped

My son dropped the camera, probably from a couple of feet, on to a very hard floor.  At first, the camera seemed fine.
The next day, when he went to use it, the LCD was not working properly.  It is mostly white, but you can still see images faintly.  The backlight seems to be getting full power, but the image is very washed-out looking.  
The LCD acts up in this way whether in a mode for shooting or for reviewing photos.  He says that the photos still look fine when uploaded to the computer.
Thanks for any help/ideas.

Hmmm seems as if the LCD did take a heavy hit there and some connecting parts inside the LCD in the camera is damaged however this shouldnt affect how the camera performs but you can maybe still have the camera serviced at a best buy or other store that fixes cameras

Yep the percieved advice is not fixable do to cost and the rapip advancement of new models If it is out of warranty - the maker may offer swap out exchange for a reasonable price. Try their website

Check out the Fiji Tech support team. Depending on the age of the camera there may be a swap out option. Independent repair will not be an economic prop.

SOURCE: Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1

The clue is with the video.
The video function does not use the shutter. Lines on photo's or over exposure is due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens when you take a picture.
It will require cleaning which means opening up your camera and accessing the lens unit

SOURCE: Camera acts like it is taking photos just fine

Check your memory card and see if it has a lock switch on it, if it does and it is locked it wont accept images for overwrite protection , another possibility is a faulty or non-readable card, some memory cards will not work with some devices, sometimes a kingston memory will not work and if you insert a sony or a memorex or any other manufacturer it may work or accept the card, if the camera does not read the card it will not save pics therefore u wont see any images on your PC o in cam playback, try that and see if it works for you, let me know.

Good luck ,

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

Hi, my son dropped my LZ2 camera and now it starts when I power it on, all menus and functions seems to be ok, but no image is displayed in the LCD. Any ideas what's going on?


The LDC screen most likely broke the screen did not crack by the actual underlying LCD screen broke the only option is to replace the screen or have it replaced at a local camera shop

E1235 - nothing appearing on screen/can't photo view


Ok, I just solved this issue. I have had the issue for a while and called GE and they told me they would give me a discount replacement at $125, when new it is less then $100. SO GE ITS NOT HAPPENING!!! Well I decided to fix it my self.
1st: Take out all the screws (7 total) one is hidden under the av out cover. Make sure u mark all the longer screw heads and location with a marker so you know where they go. There were only to sizes so if you mark the longer ones you should be ok.
2nd slowly pull the back of the camera back (BUT BE CAREFULL, do not pull to far there are wires from the LCD and buttons to the camera.) Now there is a little tab on the main board holding the wires from the LCD to the camera. Flip it up and remove the LCD wires. After you do that push the LCD wires back in and flip the tab back down. Be careful not to damage wires or tab. Put case back together, put screws in where they go, and wallah. Your camera should work. If not try again, and make sure your properly putting wires in. If it doesn't work email me I will be making YouTube video for this soon. REMEMBER TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I AM NOT RESPONSABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU CAUSE!!!

I dropped my FZ28 (about 3 feet onto a wood floor) but it seems fine (despite it totally stressing me out!). Is there anything particularly I should look out for? Any suggestions? I'm sincerely hoping that...


Hi,

The main thing would be to check if your lens is alright(no crack) if your picture quality is still the same and if all the buttons are working (zoom, menu etc). If all these are alright keep snapping those photos.

Cheers

LCD screen and pictures go completly white


The camera is defective. But as you've only had the camera three months it still is under warranty. Canon is usually very responsive to these type of problems and will bend over backwards to make things right (probably the most responsive of the camera companies).

Call 1-800-OK-CANON to resolve this issue.

White screen after drop.


i can tell you that the lcd backlight is working but the lcd is definetly damaged. if you can find it in you to purchase the lcd and fit it yourself then you could fit it yourself. if it becomes difficult then get a technician to fit it.

Nintendo DS lite - dropped


Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.
