Question about Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Immediate Battery Draining

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.
Please help!

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.

Something is draining the battery. Remove the positive terminal on the battery, then touch it back on it. If it arcs back then you have a constant draw. Try removing fuses one by one until you don't get an arc. Then at least you now know what is drawing the battery down. That is the component that you have a problem with. ( You will always get a slight draw from the radio because of the memory) If it is a heavy arc, then you have something wrong with the radio.

Make sure you have enough credit on your phone. Try turning off your phone, remove the battery, for 10 minutes. If that does not work, try deleting some of your messages.

Slow camera


unfortunately, the externals you use are AA's so I'm sure you've tried new ones there.   The internal battery (or capacitor) is not worth attempting to replace for a camera of that age. You may end up spending more to replace the battery then you would to upgrade to a new, higher resolution camera.  Good Luck,  NGK

Overexposure


The top of your cam should have a square button with a positive and negative sign. (I have the S5200, so it shouldn't be that different.) Hold that button down while pushing the button for "Macro" (the one with the little flower. On your LCD the number in lower right hand corner (FStop or something) should decrease (or increase - if you push the right side of the button.) All the buttons have names, and I apologize for not just getting my manual. Just experiment........it won't hurt (of course, you may want to experiment on just a table or something......you know nothing serious until you get the hang of it.

Battery Low with NiMH (won't turn on) OK with Alkaline


Not the camera obviously - works OK Replace the NiMah batteries- get several sets and keep one set in the bag charged with one set in the camera. You may be able to 'refresh' the original batteries by putting them into a small flashlight and running them until the bulb goes out. This discharges them completely- then recharge. It is said batteries have a 'memory' so that a battery that is down say 50% and recharged will only recharge that 50% and the other 50% is lost for use. So you have to flatten the batteries completely

Fuji f700


I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!

Sorry, no solution. Same problem here. I am very unhappy because initially it took great pictures. The first one I tried only worked a couple of days and I returned to store and they replaced. Second worked a couple of months and now immediately draws down power and won't work on new batteries. I was told to use NH-10 batteries (rechargeable). I did this from the beginning. Still won't hold charge.
