No power sometimes

Remove battery and memory card, clean battery terminals in camera with a touch of rubbing alcohol and clean memory card contacts, plus battery points, this may solve the problem.

I get no power when using fresh AA batteries or charged (Ni-MH batteries). Camera works fine when using AC power adapter.


Please make sure that you're using the LR6 AA sized batteries and also the terminals of the batteries are correctly inserted. Also make sure that the terminals of the battery compartment is clean without any obstacles or dirt. Also, try power reset and check if it helps.
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
If the issue persists, try the factory resetting. SETUP MENU-->RESET ALL--> OK
This should resolve the issue.

Battery life is only about few days even if we dont use the camera,any idea how to fix the problem?

The battery could be dying. Otherwise, resistance, in the form of oxidation or poosibly corrosion on battery terminals, will cause current drain, and decrease the life of the battery. Make sure the battery terminals, as well at the terminals inside the camera, are clean (use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser to clean them.
Aside from that, the problem will require servicing. Get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can be high.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Camera keep on displating

OK try using some steel wool or emery paper (fine) on the terminals inside the batteryy compartement. I suspect there is some sort of corrosion or substance causing poor connection.
Hold the camera so no swarf gets retained in the battery compaertment. Wipe the area clean after rubbing contacts

My camera shuts off right after power it on

This could have several causes. If the camera works OK on external power, try this...
Digital cameras suffer if the battery terminals are dirty. Using a Q-tip and 99% pure alcohol, clean the battery terminals in the camera and on the batteries BEFORE you put them back in.
If you get good results, let me know.
Also, batteries specifically for digital cameras, like Duracell Ultra and Eveready e2 are WORTH the money.
Regular batteries 20 shots, special batts, 144 shots with flash and counting...

FujiPix A345 it shuts off when I try to take a picture.

The most common causes of this are

1) Batteries at end of their charge - renew charge or replace batteries.

2) Poor battery contacts - remove batteries and clean contact terminals.

3) The rechargeable batteries (if used) have become deactivated, or the battery
capacity has diminished due to the memory effect.

4) The Auto power off function has turned the camera off.

Often a problem like this can be corrected by removing the batteries altogether cleaning the terminals and then reloading them. Also claen the terminals in the battery compartment itself.

Try the following:
1). Check batteries whether they are fully charged.
2). Check with Battery terminal are clean. You can clean them with a ear bud using some alcohol or spirit. Wipe the battery terminal with a clean dry cloth.
3). confirm that the memory car slot/battery cover is securly closed.
4). Reload the battery several times. This will also remove poor contact between camera and battery terminals.
5).Check battery are loaded in the correct direction.

If the probelm persist, you might need to take it to the service center.
