Re: fuji FinePix A400
Take the batteries out and clean the contacts Those at the bottom of the battery compartment you can clean with the eraser at the end of a pencil do the same with the lid. Make sure the batteries are fresh/charged
When you close and lock the compartment lid squeeze it shut then turn on- it may be a contact problem. If this fails then it will be a repair shop job

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
Fuse F351 has possibly blown on the board. It is a 2.5A 32v UL type surfacemount fuse which is soldered to the board. The fuse has a coded letter on it for identification. Recomend you find someone who knows electronics to repair
I have the same camera and have devised this solution. Remove batteries, leave for about 10 mins then replace batteries ( make sure they are in good condition, Cover the aperture whilst switching it on and it should work - mine did on the 2nd attempt.
Can you get into your camera's menus? If you can, there should be an
Option under your Setup menu to Reformat card that might fix the
problem. This happens sometimes with the memory cards, they just need to be
reset. Unfortunately you can lose your photos sometimes when it
happens, so if it's happening a lot you should buy a new memory card.
To help rule out if the battery, camera, or even your charger I would suggest to first clean all the contacts. This can be done with some rubbing alchol and a q-tip, make sure you get the contacts in the camera, directly on the battery, and your charger. Wipe off any excess alchol and let it sit for a minute or two so the alchol can evaporate. Give the battery a good charge and see what happens.
Where did you purchase that replament battery? If what was under 10bucks I would suspect it's the battery, there are a ton of crap battery's hitting the market, always stick with name brand.
Another possibility is that the charger could be sending the wrong voltage to the battery causing inproper charging, or even the chargers power cord could be sending the wrong voltage to the charger.
Anyway I'm done rambling, It's 12:15am and I have a 70hour week starting in 6 hours so i'm outta here. Hope this helps.
