Re: Fuji FinePix A345 Digital won't turn on

Have you tried using high-drain batteries? 2800mah rechargeables should do the trick. My A345 had all sorts of problems until I used expensive batteries and now it's been given a new lease of life! my camera wouldn't turn on half the time, when it did it turned off as soon I tried to use it, the shutter would refuse to open, all sorts of weird stuff - I have had no more problems since changing to better batteries (high-density Sony first of all, now I use rechargeable).

Finepix a345 will not switch on

Does it power up in playback mode? If you can view pictures try switching over to camera mode and see if the lense will extend. if not then your lens is possibly stuck. possible solution in "THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW..." In my tips n tricks section. Also is my email if you want some pictures of an A345 opened up. Cheers.

A345 won't turn on

I experienced exactly the same problem with my A345. Check for a small L shaped lug on the inside of the battery cover which should operate an interlock switch located in the recess next to the PUSH TO EJECT label. The lug on my camera had snapped off, although this wasn't obvious until I looked at the illustrations on pages 10 and 11 of the owner manual.

My quick fix was to wedge a piece of matchstick into the recess to lock the switch in its operational position. The purpose of the switch seems to be to ensure that the camera is switched off when the cover is open, but as the battery connection relies on the cover being closed, this is liable to be the case anyway. The only possible risk would seem to be if one attempted to remove the memory card with the camera switched on while being run from an external power supply.

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.

Turns on only for split second!

I was just trying to solve this exact same problem on my girlfriends A345 and upon inspecting the battery door I noticed a small tab had been broken off. I lined up the tab and just above the memory card where it says push to eject there is a slot. In that slot is a tiny black pressure switch that the broken off tab used to depress. I stuffed a small piece of wire in there and hit power and it works just as it did :) hope this solves your problem as I'm sure these tiny tabs break off without people noticing since the battery door closes and locks without them
