Question about Digital Cameras

5 Answers

I have a Finepix A370 digital camera. Every time I take a picture the camera closes. When I change the batteries, it works for a few pictures then starts doing it again. It is almost like it won't keep the battery charge.

    I do not have the time or patience for rechargeable batteries. Anyway if it only takes 2 pictures and then I have to change the batteries, that it not really a solution to this problem.

    What are ni-mah batteries? Don't think this is a good enough solution yet.

It is the problem of bad sensors which detect the baterries.when you insert the new battery it pulls all the charge from your battery.no rechargeble batteries.just clean the metal sensors manully from inside and out side.if still the problem get it repaired at any repair shop it will cost you not more then 3$ including servicing.
rustness between the sensors always create this problem. do not worry it will be ok.

A possible blown capacitor, or a leaking one may have caused this issue you are having, because it is very unlikely that a charged battery will give out just 2 shots. if you still have the camera warranty, please consult the manufacturer to have it checked before doing any physical troubleshooting with the unit.

Ni-Mh is Nickel Metal-Hyd if im not mistaken

A nickel-metal hydride battery, abbreviated NiMH, is a type of rechargeable battery similar to a nickel-cadmium (NiCd) battery but using a hydrogen-absorbing alloy for the negative electrode instead of cadmium

This type of batter holds more charge than a regular battery and is rechargeable. Since it would be too expensive as a disposable type.

    Also, if you use batteries that are not designed for digital cameras they will not work as they do not hold enough charge to give the camera enough power which is why you loose the charge after only 2 shots. Make sure you ask the vendor where you buy batteries to give you some that are specifically designed for digital cameras

I went to a party, and i dropped my digital camera ! please help!


You most likely cracked and damaged the LCD. Digital camera's LCD repair sometimes cost almost as much as the camera itself, by the time you add shipping and other charges.

You can still take the pictures, but you will not be able to review them.

All Fujifilm digital cameras will work on Windows Vista using drivers already installed on the operating system.

The finepix viewer software supplied with our cameras will require an update which can be downloaded from Fuji's global website

Fuji digital camera A370 lens sticking


It seems the life of digital cameras are 2-3 years. The camera has lens gear problem. The lens assy fails most on digital cameras with moving lens. The plastic gears in the lens assy. are quite fragile in design and when used regularly, gears tends to wear down and eventually damages the lens movement. Many time a small impact or stress on lens when extended do the same damage. The parts are sold as a lens assy and repair cost may run around $100.
