My camera is in perfect condition, I have had it for a few years, never banged it or dropped it, after about a 7 months of not using it, I turn it on and the screen has suddendly started flickering and I do not know how to stop it. I can still take pictures and the pictures come out perfectly, but it is hard to see through the lcd screen and take a picture properly when there are flickering lines across it!
Can anyone help me?

Re: A340 screen flickers unexpectedly!
I would suggest taking batteries out overnight and letting the camera discharge the stored power. then trying it again. also make sure what mode your in because the shake warning makes certain lights flicker

Annemarie, I had a similar problem with an off-brand photo frame from Wal-Mart last year, although in my case the frame would shut down entirely after it had flickered a few times. In my case, I was able to remove the back of the frame's case by removing 4 screws (two were hidden underneath model number stickers) and inspecting the device's innards... what I found was that, as you surmised, there was a loose connection from the female end of the DC-in power supply. The ground connection to the device's circuit board had been poorly soldered, leaving the connection itself loose and a small piece of solder on top of the board and very near the positive connection.
While not being the best solderer in the world, with the aid of a magnifying glass, a solder removal tool, and a ColdHeat soldering wand, I was able to heat the offending piece of solder and remove it from the circuit board and then, as I was personally uncertain of my ability to re-solder the connection without melting the board, I simply held the connection in place and applied a dab of hot glue to keep it there. After the glue cooled, I reassembled the case and the frame worked for almost another year before something else finally burned out and it was left cold and dark.
Hope this helps, good luck!
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.
It could be the CCD, fuji has admited a few of their models have the faulty CCDs and there is a list of serial numbers you can look and see if yours is in the list. You may want to call them and see what they say. Ide try and call a few different times if they say it isnt, try again later and see if you can talk to a different opperator. Some may or may not know so dont just take the first pesons word for it if they say no.
If you bang on the side of the cammera does it work ok again? usualy if its the CCD problem a bang on the side of the camera fairly hard is enough of a shock to cause it to work again.
