I also have this problem - it started when I put some Lithium batteries in (AAs). Whilst I was looking in the A900 handbook it said "do not put Lithium batteris in it" :(

I thought those batteries where for these type of battery eating devices.

Summary: put Lithium batteries in never worked again!!

it was only a week old too!!

Turn on the fujifilm finepix a900 and the lens wont go out and comes up with zoom error


Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

WHEN i SWITCH ON MY FUJIFILM A235 CAMERA, IT GOES INTO "IMAGE VIEW" MODE AND THE LENS DOES NOT COME OUT. HOW DO I GET IT TO START IN "TAKE PICTURE" MODE, PLEASE?


It's supposed to start in shooting mode, unless you turn it on by deliberately holding the "Play" button. And, when it's in play mode, you should be able to switch to shooting mode by pressing the shutter button half way. Because you're asking the question, I suspect there may be something wrong with your camera. Check out the manual:

Sorry it's so small, Fixya seems to shrink pictures, even though they're PNG.

My digital camera FinePix A900, keeps turning off when I turn it on. Unable to pull any menus. Batteries are good. any suggestions, is it fixable or do I have to buy a new one?


Try pressing the playback button to turn the camera on. This should turn the camera on just so that you can view any pictures stored on the card or internal memory. You can also access the menu functions this way. Also try pressing the picture/shutter button and see if the lens extends. If the camera shuts off when you press the picture button and the lens does not move or only moves a fraction then the problem is probably to do with the lens

FujiFilm A850 Clicking Noise... A900 Shutter Turns Itself Off?


It could be the cold affecting them but I suspect it's a battery problem.
If you use normal alkaline AA's then the camera will drain them fast. Try using the lithium type which has a higher Amh for use in high drain electronic gadgets like cameras.
The cold weather will affect things like cameras, especially when you bring them in from the cold after long periods. Condensation will form inside the camera and cause short circuits or component failure unless you allow the camera to aclimatise to room tempreture gradually before using it.
Condensation can also have an effect on the shutter inside the lens. It cannot evaporate well inside the lens unit because it is sealed and so leaves a residue on the shutter leafs that can cause the shutter to either stick or not work fully and you get either wavey lines on the pictures that you take or they come out over exposed or too bright.
Leave the camera for 24 hours at room tempreture and buy ( if you haven't already got) some lithium batteries and then try the camera

Fuji (A360) lens won't come out


Lens mechanism is jammed. Probably the counter wheel attached to the drive gear is hitting the sensor and stopping it from working, so will switch off. Needs a service

Camera goes to sleep too quickly...is there a way to adjust?


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation after 3 minutes when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover is open and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. Operate the zoom button or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left on for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

Fuji FinePix A900 Digital Zoom error


Same problem with me. Got a zoom error. I thought "it's still under warranty, so Fuji will help me out." WRONG! Fuji repair claims it has impact damage, but that's not true. The product is just defective. Fuji charges $113 to get it repaired. It cost me $140 from Dell only 7 months ago. Defective.

You may be able to go on Ebay and find a replacement keypad for the A900.  What has happened is etching and a form of electrolysis.  When you got it wet, you must have left the battery in the phone.  The power from the battery along with the water around you keypad, actually will cross migrate copper from one contact to another and short out the keypad permanently.  Your contact that took the phone into download mode is shorted.
