Why can I not see the pictures I have taken?

First, make sure that there is a memory card on the camera itself, the camera has a mode that will allow you to take sample shots even if you have no memory card.

If there is a memory card, make sure that you press on the Play button to be able to view the pictures you took.

My digital camera FinePix A900, keeps turning off when I turn it on. Unable to pull any menus. Batteries are good. any suggestions, is it fixable or do I have to buy a new one?

Try pressing the playback button to turn the camera on. This should turn the camera on just so that you can view any pictures stored on the card or internal memory. You can also access the menu functions this way. Also try pressing the picture/shutter button and see if the lens extends. If the camera shuts off when you press the picture button and the lens does not move or only moves a fraction then the problem is probably to do with the lens

It just shut off....

it normally indicates a problem with the batteries. Try inserting disposable alkaline battieres in the camera and turn it on.

If the lense is still out at the moment try pressing the play button the back of the camera to view the pictures taken, even with a very low battery this normally close the lense properly and enables you to view the pictures.
