Re: fuji a345 digital camera will only take video...

The three position switch for play,camera,video has likely broken. The plastic switch on the outside has a small contact plate held to the back of the switch on the inside with one small screw. I do have a replacement on hand if you are interested.

Can I place a "Date

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

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.

I lost the cd to install the software installation in the computer - model Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera

With most recent computer systems, you don't really need the software that came from the camera manufacturer.
  • Connect the camera to the computer using the USB cable that was included.
  • Put the camera in the mode for viewing pictures already taken (not sure if necessary).
  • Turn on the camera.
  • At that point, the computer should recognize the device.  It may take a few moments to configure itself properly.
  • Then the computer should make the camera available just as if it were another disk drive (or flash drive).  You should be able to drag or copy photo files from the camera to the computer.  You will first need to navigate through the directory/folder structure of the camera -- the photos are not in the root directory.
Hope this helps.

Fujifilm A345 Switch will not operate correctly; Will not switch between play, camera, and video

The only thing I've seen on this model and similar ones is the metal plate on the back side of the switch becomes loose. Beyond that, it sounds like a logic problem in the circuitry. It is probably not cost effective if that is the case.

I suppose you've already turned the dial? Yea, on my camera there's dial ontop to turn to select the display mode, and then I turn it to the "shoot" mode, its usually a camera icon.

A345 stuck in movie mode

you need to open the camera caseing a small amount. As you put the case back make sure the switch is in the movie position so it will engage the switch inside on the circuit board. Looks like the switch has been knocked off the control inside.If you have been moveing the switch back and forward you may have broken it.
