Question about Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Power button gone

After I accidentally dropped my camera, the power button fell out and went is still fully functional and if I press the areas to turn the camera on and take pictures (with a fine tipped utensil) the underlying areas work. Is there anywhere that could replace the button, or where I could buy a new button without having to pay the equivalent price of the camera itself?

    I have the same exact problem.... we are assuming the camera was dropped and the power button is missing. We can also use the camera with a fine point utensil. I am ready to buy a broken camera off of e-bay to try and repair myself.

    Have you had any luck on your camera repair, finding a replacement pc.

The best help u can get is from the service center of the camera.
else do one thing.
as am from india i dont know what place is the HUB to buy any kind of electronics items near your place.
if u go to that kind of place where all kinds of electronics goods like computers, digicams, electronic components, etc etc...
there they would take the power button from any other old camera and fix it in yours.
but one thing is u dont need to prefer for a new button. old one will work fine. even inn service center they have old buttons. so try in service center first. then try in shops.

My tablet just stoped working, I took the back off and tried to see is the wires are loose for connectivity and their all firm, no water damage, drops or anything, please help

return it to the supplier, goods have to be of merchantable quality. If they said it was new and the button was missing they are untruthful. Contact them and let them know about the situation, tell them they should have replaced the item immediately when you informed them of the missing button. Tell them the device is no longer functioning and you hold them responsible, you want an exchange or a refund. If the chain of events is as you describe them I can only say that they are taking extreme liberties with you!!

There is a narrow button with a C or crescent shape on it on my Compaq keyboard near the Escape key. I accidentally pushed it and all went black and I couldn't get anything back. Had to turn off to reboot....

Hi and thank you for using fixya:
That is the sleep button. When you press that key the computer goes into sleep mode. After it fully goes to sleep you can get it back by pressing the same button or pressing the power key
Thank you
Good luck

Won't turn on

Dear Michibear

Open the battery door , there should be a small button
( right next to SD Memory card on my IXUS 60 )
It tells the camera when door is open & disables power to the camera .Its very weakly made & is responsible for alot of people's problems I have seen so far,including myself !!

The one on my IXUS 60 just magically fell out and landed down the drain whilst I was just changing a battery , and the camera ceased to function. With the button itself gone the copper wire terminals were visible. I used a small pair of scissors and pushed them together and it instantly resumed working, & still does.

I'd recommend using a piece of aluminium foil , or any other conductive material folded up and inserted into the cavity to connect all the copper prongs together.

Im not going to tell you to pull your button out, BUT,
Upon seeing inside it, I'm confident that even when still intact , it'd be really easy for it to malfunction....

Dropped my camera canon sd450

The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:
