Re: fuji digital camera A370 lens sticking

It seems the life of digital cameras are 2-3 years. The camera has lens gear problem. The lens assy fails most on digital cameras with moving lens. The plastic gears in the lens assy. are quite fragile in design and when used regularly, gears tends to wear down and eventually damages the lens movement. Many time a small impact or stress on lens when extended do the same damage. The parts are sold as a lens assy and repair cost may run around $100.

I dropped my camer while the lense was out...and the lense stayed out.. can this be fixed?

Try reset all in camera menu or remove battery & reinsert or contact Fuji for exchange or repair.They sometimes go back on their own if you turn power on & off try gently twisting/pushing lens but be gentle with it.

Try the video function.
If this works fine then it is most probably the shutter sticking.
To confirm the shutter is sticking turn the camera on, put the zoom to full optical and turn it to face you so you can see into the lens. Watch the inner part of the lens when you take a picture. You should see the shutter fire across the lens. Lines on pictures or over exposed pictures are caused by gaps in the shutter or the shutter failing to fire altogether.
Moisture residue on the shutter leafs is the common cause for this problem.
Some people on here have their own views about what causes lines on photo's. Someone even said digital cameras do not have a shutter and problems were due to software issues....
I have dealt with 100's of different models, including Fuji's E900 and always have found moisture residue to be the cause.

Can not copy/ transfer images from Fuji FinePix A370 to PC

Remove the camera's software and reinstall. If this fails to solve the problem, use a memory card reader to transfer images from the card.

All Fujifilm digital cameras will work on Windows Vista using drivers already installed on the operating system.

The finepix viewer software supplied with our cameras will require an update which can be downloaded from Fuji's global website

If you have other questions just let me know
