Question about Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The mode won't change

I've had a FinePix A345 for a couple of years and its always worked fine, but now when I turn it on it will only go to the video mode. I try to change it to take pictures but it won't do anything. I can take video, but no pictures and can't even check what the video came out like because it won't switch. Please help me!

A345 won't turn on

I experienced exactly the same problem with my A345. Check for a small L shaped lug on the inside of the battery cover which should operate an interlock switch located in the recess next to the PUSH TO EJECT label. The lug on my camera had snapped off, although this wasn't obvious until I looked at the illustrations on pages 10 and 11 of the owner manual.

My quick fix was to wedge a piece of matchstick into the recess to lock the switch in its operational position. The purpose of the switch seems to be to ensure that the camera is switched off when the cover is open, but as the battery connection relies on the cover being closed, this is liable to be the case anyway. The only possible risk would seem to be if one attempted to remove the memory card with the camera switched on while being run from an external power supply.

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.

You need the USB cable to connect the camera to your computer and in the setup menu, change your USB mode to PC

Fuji a345 digital camera will only take video footage, not photos

The three position switch for play,camera,video has likely broken. The plastic switch on the outside has a small contact plate held to the back of the switch on the inside with one small screw. I do have a replacement on hand if you are interested.

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.
