Lens retracts when shutter is pressed


With battery and memory card removed. Is there a hidden reset button on this camera? Some electronic devices can be reset so the everything works properly again. It could be a simple paperclip size hole where a paperclip is inserted and is gently pressed in a few times.
Make sure the battery is in top-notch condition.
If it was me and I gave it the "last try" (nothing ventured nothing gained) I would reverse battery connection just for an instant.
I can't take responsibility here and anything you try may hurt the camera.

Camera will not turn ON. I changed the batteries but still no change.


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Fuji FinePix A820 Won't reset


Hello,
To solve this problem you need to use the SP shooting mode.
Replace battery with new High power ones. and switch ON keeping pressed the PLAY Button.
If still does not retract disable the flash and repeat the operation without the XD/SD Memory Card inserted. It will then close the shutter magic.
Regards,
PDG

Camera turns on but lense does not open


The lens needs to be removed, stripped and cleaned. It's jamned up with dirt or some foreign objects. the drive gear on this model and other similar models e.g. A345, A350, A360,and A370 are all open on the side of the lens unit. Unlike other fuji's where the drive gear is inside the lens unit and less likely to jam. This is a great little camera otherwise. Well, I like it anyway.

S (Shutter Priority): You set the shutter speed, the camera selects appropriate aperture.

A (Aperture Priority): You set the aperture, the camera selects appropriate shutter speed.

M (Manual): You set the shutter speed and the aperture.
