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!

Studio utility crashing


What did you do or what changes did you make to your computer since all operated fine? Bad things just do not happen - you must have done something that is now responsible for the issue. Can you repair your Vista installation - your OS may be at issue. If you have other computer with Vista try installing there to see if it works. Maybe something is now wrong with the camera - it happens.

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.

Pump sounds loud and slurpy but doesn't pump


Try descaling the machine. Saeco has a suitable solution, although the user manual says 'you may use any commercially available non-toxic descaling agent.' The instructions are set out in the user manual, and are usually on the descaling agent label. It is important to descale regularly, at least every 4-6 months.

Battery Problem or camera


I use rechargable batteries (of the 2400 miliampers type) and they last more that the regular alkaline ones. If you take a lot of pics by night and have activated the red eyes feature (double flash), you will consume a lot of batteries !!

Screen works in playback mode but turns off in camera mode as if batteries are going dead.


For some reason, Fuji does not emphasize that if your batteries get low, this is what happens. You just need recharged batteries or new batteries. Be careful with rechargables--before recharging them when this happens, you first have to drain them using the discharge mode of your camera. Then they will take a complete charge. (Good for some 300 charges or so, I believe.) But if you don't discharge them first, they will take less and less of a charge, and last shorter and shorter. If you use regular batteries, they might not last for 50 pics before running out of juice.

Lost reverse side printing option


Yepperz

The double sided printing option relies on Status monitor working correctly. If information cannot travel from the printer to the computer, the option will be greyed out.

Make sure you have a direct connection to the computer without any hubs. If that doesn't work, try the following.

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, and click CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS.
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.
4. Right click on the Printer again, and select DELETE.

1) Click on START, SETTINGS and CONTROL PANEL.
2) Double click on the SYSTEM folder and select the Device Manager tab.
3) Click on the "+" for "Universal Serial Bus Controller"
4) Right click on "USB Printing Support" and select "Uninstall" and confirm it
5) Disconnect the USB cable and reconnect it.

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!!!

NEW Batts but keep getting low batt indicator and....


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.
