Re: Fuji A345 finepix
As batteries are recharged- they develop a 'memory' That is to say starting with a new fully charged battery- the 'low' light may come in when the voltage drops below a certain value.
The battery is not however fully discharged.
It could have say 25% residual in it.
When recharging- the charger is charging the 75% only, and on the next recharge- that mush less again until the battery is only offering a small percentage of its capacity.
The answer is to put the low battery in a simple device - a torch - until it is completely down
Then recharge - you will then get the full capacity of the battery.
Meanwhile do contact the Tech support of the manufacturer just in case there is a known problem with a given model.

I have same problem as edmoze mentions above - batteries went dead. I first tried to use regular Duracell AA and it would still not come on. Went to internet & it recommended getting the Duracell rechargeable NiMh which I did. Got the charger & last nite they charged overnight. Today the camera did come on & I was able to download what I had taken. But what concerns me is that the low battery light is still flashing after a night of charging. What's up? Should I expect this kind of battery problem to continue? Seriously considering getting a Nikon Coolpix.
There is no hardware reset on this model. We have many situation on different make digital cameras that uses AA batteries that would not turn on with some other AA batteries due to Amp requirement on the batteries. Which means that some circuit design would work only with rechargable batteries because they have more power due to higher Amp power. So I would try rechargable batteries for the last resort. -James
I think I've solved the same problem on a Finepix A350. My shutter has been sticking for months now on powerup. I brushed all round the periphery of the shutter with a perfectly clean, small, camel hair brush and now it operates perfectly! So maybe the answer is to keep a new brush specially for this. Hope this works for you! I certainly would not try dropping the camera as someone suggested.
all figured out,,,,the shutter button is too close to the shut off button,its happened to me many times ,next time it happns try to catch yourself and see which button you pressed,,guaranteed!!! it sucks
If you haven't tried already, try changing the batteries to high-drain Nimh or Energiser 2800MAh batteries. I had loads of problems with my camera until I put stronger batteries in it, now it works wonderfully again.
Have you tried using high-drain batteries? 2800mah rechargeables should do the trick. My A345 had all sorts of problems until I used expensive batteries and now it's been given a new lease of life! my camera wouldn't turn on half the time, when it did it turned off as soon I tried to use it, the shutter would refuse to open, all sorts of weird stuff - I have had no more problems since changing to better batteries (high-density Sony first of all, now I use rechargeable).
