Question about Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera
I have had a FinePix A345 for 6 months and have not used it very much. It has always worked fine until recently. I have just been using regular double A alkaline batteries. Recently the batteries I had in it went dead. Naturally I went to the store and bought another pack of AA batteries. I put a new set in and it would not turn on. I put a different set in and it turned on, but immediately gave a red light indication that the batteries were low. Within less than 10 minutes the batteries were so low that the camera was shutting down on its own. Since then I have replaced the batteries several times with brand new Duracell alkaline batteries and the problem has persisted with each set of new batteries. I normally get no more that 10 minutes out of a set of batteries before they register as so drained that the camera is shutting down every time I turn it on. What is the problem? I've browsed these problem pages and think that this may be a reoccurring problem for this make and model of camera but there is no mention of it on the Fuji website. Is there a way for me to get this fixed, because this is only a 6 month old camera, and my first digital camera, and I don't want to give up on it and buy another one so soon.
I had the same problem with my A345, it got worse and worse until now, everytime I try to take a photo the camera turns off. My brother has the same camera, his also does this.
