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
