Question about Fuji FinePix A360 Digital Camera
Hi, I had given this camera to my frind for a couple of months, she gave it back to me and said it stopped working. When turned on, the lens doesn't seem to want to come out all the way and makes a buzzing noise. The picture still comes up but it is incredibly blurry. Any suggestions?
SOURCE: wont turn on
Only use Ni-MH or AA-size alkaline batteries. Do not use Ni-Cd (nickel-cadmium) because the heat emitted can damage the camera.
I would suggest using e2 batteries from Energizer.
In the manual, on page 80 there is a description and procedure for discharging Ni-MH batteries (but NOT regular batteries, so don't do this with regular alkaline batteries) AND do not do this when the external power is connected.
Moving on... The discharging of the batteries procedure should happen when:
Remember to not have the camera external battery plugged in so the battery can discharge on it's own.
Then, at this point, recharge the battery using the external battery charger. This helps to "renew" the battery. This is because Ni-MH batteries will remember the last place where they recharged, and too many times, the memory "bookmark" gets marked to low and has to be reset, done by the recharge.
It may be necessary to repeat these steps multiple times. This effect is not because the batteries are deffective. This is a normal side-effect of Ni-MH. This is the reason the camera comes with a discharge feature.
I the batteries are old and don't function even after performing the discharge procedure as part of the normal operation of the camera (like of the year or two), then the batteries may have reached the end of their service life.
Hope this helps, if so, please rate FixYa! ThankYa!

I'm afraid you'll have a hard time finding a new one, as this model has been discontinued for years. amazon.com lists used ones starting from $25.
