Question about Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera
My Fuji FinePix A345 is stuck in video mode. no matter which button I press, video, review or photo, it stays in video mode. I can start to take video, and then stop it, but can't review what I took, or take a photo or review any of my photos. I checked batteries, they are good, took them out and put them back in again, tried troubleshooting articles on the web. I am stuck. We are going on a family vacation in a couple days and I was hoping to use the camera. any help totally appreciated. Lori
I took the ****** apart and found two spring-loaded black triangular plastic pieces poking out of two rectangular chips about 2mm square, just below the circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes mode – play, video, camera. Actually I found one of the above, because the second triangular piece was stuck in the closed position. A bit of jiggling and voila the problem was fixed.
That was the good news. The other news is that I must now reinsert inside of the shell a black circular piece of plastic that affixes to the rotating circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes the mode. When properly attached this circular piece manipulates the triangular pieces to change the mode.
I think that the likelihood of getting this piece properly aligned and affixed so that it moves the triangular pieces properly when the mode knob is rotated falls into the statistical probability range of pork taking wing. But worth a try.
BTW, my camera is an old Z2800, but I suspect the situation holds for all Fuji units similiarly constructed.

Lori, the switch above the display may be broken. does it still 'click' at each of the 3 settings? (play,video,camera)
