The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I concur with rogerstone1's reply. I just replied to another post with similar information and will repost here to make sure you get the info. Don't know of a repair manual, but found the owners manual at this address:

I have the same camera (Fuji Finepix 345) and a problem that may have been similar. When I powered on the camera the lens would extend but as soon as I attempted to take a picture the camera lens would retract and the camera powered itself off.

The camera is now working. I followed the troubleshooting steps at this address:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Gently holding onto the lens to prevent it from retracting during power off was the solution that worked for me.

My camera's problem seemed to slowly get worse over time until it finally stopped taking pictures. At first my wife and I noticed that pictures were sometimes out of focus. It turned out that my wife takes pictures using the viewfinder where I use the LCD screen. She wouldn't notice that pictures were out of focus. If I saw that the LCD was out of focus I'd power cycle, press the zoom button to get the lens to move, and/or try tapping the camera while holding it upside down and powering it on. Eventually it got so bad that we couldn't get any pictures in focus and I ended up buying a different camera. Then last night I tried the trick about holding the lens and the camera is working again.

I suggest you first see if the camera will power on when switched into playback (picture review) mode. Move the slider to the playback position and turn on the camera. Can you review pictures? If not, then clean the battery contacts by rubbing them with a pencil eraser and replace the batteries. Try holding the power button down for several seconds, it seems like my camera is slow to power on sometimes.

If you can review pictures in playback mode you'll know the problem is not batteries, battery contacts, or the LCD display and circuitry. Is the lens stuck? To jar it free, try holding the camera upside down and tapping the edge against the palm of your other hand while holding the power button down. As mentioned earlier, this used to work for me.

You need the USB cable to connect the camera to your computer and in the setup menu, change your USB mode to PC

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

I have recently changed to Windows Vista and can no longer download my photos from my A345 Finepix camera as the CD I have is only useable with Windows XP. Will you please let me know where I may get hold...


You don't need any special software.

This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Get the images off the card. Plug to your computer and download them. Then reformat the card in the Camera. If your computer is a Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista you will not need any extra software to do this. Windows can do it all by its self.
