Question about Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Big Problem I have had my Fuji FinePix A345 for a good 3 years or so. I took it abroad with me (I was a foreign exchange student for a year to Germany) and it has had plenty of good use and wear. However, not soon after coming home from Europe it started messing up. First the screen got all funny and blurry but I could still take pictures, I just had to hope I was shooting in the right place, then upload it to the computer. Not soon after that did it change to be where it is now. I have no problem turning it on but then the little green light flashes orange a couple of times, the LCD screen lights up and has vertical black and white lines and then if I push down the shutter button as if to take a picture, the little green light flashes red several times and nothing happens, same thing in movie mode, the green light flashes red, and just switching it to the furthest left mode the green light flashes red again. Is there anyway I can possibly fix this, if I can't would a computer/camera repair place be able to? I know that it is older and the chances are slim but I'm hoping something can be done. I'm supposed to photograph a wedding in August, and need to know whether I'm going to have to find money to buy a new camera or will be able to fix the one I've got. Somebody let me know asap! Thanks.

Re: Big Problem

There is a no fix for a user- this is a general failure. As it is a now 3 years old I doubt the manufacturer will offer much in the way of help - but you could try - why not? But at the end of the line - time to treat yourself to a new camera.

Circuit boards do not last forever. I am sorry, you will need the circuit board replaced. Usually a 30-60 dollar part.

I have a Fuji FinePix A345. It is out of warranty. I put freshly-charged batteries in, take one or two pics, then get a low batter-reading, followed by the camera shutting off power. I took batteries...

The zoom lens on my A345 has been intermittently sticking for years. Finally it would only pop out about 5mm. I took my courage in my hands and put 1 drop of very light oil (sewing machine oil) on a cotton bud and wiped it over the visible parts of the lens cylinders. Switching it off the barrel retracted, and when switching on it extended fully. I wiped the same bud (without adding any more oil) over every exposed parts of the barrels. It's not failed yet, but it's early days...

My A345 finepix camera isn't working screen is black

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.

Simply wear and tear.- dirt ingression- damage from a knock- nothing you can do about unless you are a watchmaker. A repair will be as costly as simply replacing it Check out Fuji support though to be sure.

Faded screen with lines across screen

hi Jenredd, i think there is something wrong with ccd, if so it is serious... . I experienced some disturbed picture on lcd or whole black lcd due to ccd problem. As u said you pictures are fadded it means may be ccd is damaged. If so you have to replace the ccd at any authorised repairer for fuji. as you mentioned other problem there is nothing common between both. for that i suppose there is some problem in either usb socket or cord , so first check the cord, if it is ok then we can doubt on usb socket. But in both the way you have to go to Fuji . good luck
