Re: a345 digital fiji camera
Hey diana sue, I would first try cleaning the battery contacts, and if this doesn't work it is possible the new batteries you put in are defective so I would try another set of new batteries. If neither of these options work you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.

First check the battery. Charge the battery to full condition or change with new battery and try to turn on your camera. Or you can put off all batteries and memory card, wait for a moment, then put in again and turn on your camera.
1) Direction of your battery might be wrong, Check out and put it again.
2) Load new or fully charged battery.
3) clean your battery terminal with soft cloth. (Might be it will filled with dirt or dust )
4) Turn ON the camera, again firmly.
Else, Your device need service (repair)
Rating the solution is highly appreciated....Good Luck
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 experienced exactly the same problem with my A345. Check for a small L shaped lug on the inside of the battery cover which should operate an interlock switch located in the recess next to the PUSH TO EJECT label. The lug on my camera had snapped off, although this wasn't obvious until I looked at the illustrations on pages 10 and 11 of the owner manual.
My quick fix was to wedge a piece of matchstick into the recess to lock the switch in its operational position. The purpose of the switch seems to be to ensure that the camera is switched off when the cover is open, but as the battery connection relies on the cover being closed, this is liable to be the case anyway. The only possible risk would seem to be if one attempted to remove the memory card with the camera switched on while being run from an external power supply.
Casio batteries have a issue and are very weak you should not let it get below 5% when it is this low the camera will come on say battery is low and turn off. if it remains this or lower the battery can go out the good thing is you can get them really cheap off ebay.
Have you tried using high-drain batteries? 2800mah rechargeables should do the trick. My A345 had all sorts of problems until I used expensive batteries and now it's been given a new lease of life! my camera wouldn't turn on half the time, when it did it turned off as soon I tried to use it, the shutter would refuse to open, all sorts of weird stuff - I have had no more problems since changing to better batteries (high-density Sony first of all, now I use rechargeable).
Mainboard component failure at a guess or the new battery is not up to scratch- try taking the battery back for a new one as it is a recent purchase.
If you can do that and still in trouble contact Fiji for a reapair estimate.
There is a no fix for a user- this is a general failure.
As it is a now 3 years old I doubt the manufacturer will offer much in the way of help - but you could try - why not?
But at the end of the line - time to treat yourself to a new camera.
