Question about Fuji Rod Repair Kit

6 Answers

My A330 will not take photos.

The camera switches on. I can look at previous photos, but when I pull back the shutter to take a picture, it refuses to click and work, and the screen shows no image. The shutter is reluctant to return to the closed position and I have to ease it back and forward to get to close and the lense to retract. I have read through the trouble shooting pages in the manual and nothing seems to cover the problem. I have tried new batteries. I have tried to clean as well as I can. I don't know what else to do.

    the camera problem continues as before. No photo. No click. Retraction reluctant. The memory card provides for 128 exposures and there are only 15 to 20 pictures to view.

  • johndarrall Feb 09, 2009

    I have just tried your latest suggestion but there is response from the camera and no copying of the pictures onto the PC

  • johndarrall Feb 09, 2009

    I'm afraid I am getting nowhere, and closer examination of the shutter is beyond my technical ability (which is non-existent). Please may I have my money back!

  • johndarrall Feb 09, 2009

    you don't mention the money I have just given my visa card details for (9 dollars 99)

  • johndarrall Feb 09, 2009

    I give up

  • johndarrall Feb 09, 2009

    only helpful in showing that the problem cannot be solved in this way, I'm afraid

  • johndarrall Feb 09, 2009

    No, I don't think you can help any further, sad to say. I shall take the alternative route and buy a new camera on part exchange. Please cancel my visa card payment.

  • johndarrall Feb 09, 2009

    it is no solution

  • johndarrall Feb 09, 2009

    No thanks - too late

There is nothing in the user manual because there is no end-user fix.

Your camera has a bad limit switch that is not relaying correct information to the PLC.

Please take it to an authorized Fuji repair center.

There is nothing more you can do yourself.

Thank you for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Hi John

Wehn you have a jammed lens problem of this kind, that is usually because of dirt jamming the lens mechanics, or because the lens assembly had been damaged, usually after a shock.

In some case weak batteries, or oxide on battery contacts can give you same problem.

Ensure this is not a battery problem first, clean contacts with isopropyl alcohol and cotton tips.

The most likely is that this is a lens problem, in that case the lens must be disassembled at a repair shop, if you do not risk to damage the camera.

    If you have not been able to fix the problem with regular maintainance, that means that the camera is faulty, and must be repaired.

    Rather then disassembling it yourself, you should buy an extended warranty, and have it repaired and covered for three extra years.

    Here is a warranty contract for $55: Blue Nook - 3 Year Extended Warranty

    There are extended warranties for different countries available online.

    This is cheaper but your camera must be still under warranty: FUJIFILM FinePix A330 3 Year Extended Warranty ...$29.95

    The first thing to do is contact Fuji and see if your warranty is valid, or if this can considered a factory defect and replaced by manufacturer, you never know.

    If Fuji does not cover you, purchase a warrant extension and repair the camera.

    for double checking, if you dont mind to do this again..

    DO fully charge the battery.
    make sure that the battery was a new rechargeable batt.
    better clean the battery contacts.

I need the date stamp to show on Photos from my Fiji Fine Pix A330


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

BLANK (BLACK) PICTURES


Yes this is a common problem. Set the camera to take a long exposure shot (5 seconds) and with the lens off take a photo. Can you see the ccd or just the shutter (black)? If its just the shutter the shutter is jammed. It's basically a question of persisting with rebooting the camera and taking shots until the shutter frees itself.

Camera turns on and then turns off.


It seems the camera has a lens problem. Probably one of the lens gear is broken or defective. When you try to shoot the lens moves to focus and jams in the middle of the focus so shutter will not release becasue it is not focused yet. There are couple of gears in the gear chain of the lens and it is plastic. the volume of pictures you took might have caused one of the gear to wear down. The solution is to rebuild or replace lens assy. and the cost may be around $100 in US.

Wierd pictures


This is caused by a shutter that is stuck open. Normally the shutter closes right at the moment that you snap the picture and allows the image sensor to record what it saw at that moment. When the shutter does not close as intended the image sensor cannot properly record the image. This is why here are the lines across your images. The shutter can stick either due to an impact knocking the delicate blades off their tracks, or due to dust or moisture contamination sticking them open or closed. If gently tapping does not free them; the camera will require professional repair. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
