I found that cheap (new) batteries will not work in my camera. Duracell or Rayovac seem to work best.
I added 2 (new) cheaper batteries it took 1 picture the lenses would not retract and the battery light flickered. I found 2 new Durnacell and it works fine now. Hope this helps.

Camera immediatly shuts off and lense goes back in.


Sounds to me that ist is more of a charger issue. Try to borrow another charger and see if that works or not.

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.

My L200 samsung camara is frozen and the lens are stuck out


I had the same problem - and wondered if if might be that the battery didn't have enough 'grunt' to close the lense - so I am charging it via the actual charger (rather than through the computer) and sure enough, I turned it on and then off, and the lense closed. The green light comes on when I plug the camera into the computer to download photos, and I thought this was therefore charging the battery, but maybe it doesn't charge it properly. Anyway, my lense is now closed and the battery is still charging (light is still red). Good luck.

Power/lens Problems


it seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is visible may be some sand or dust partical is obstructing the movement of the lense assambly. needs a help from camera repair shop.
