I've had a FinePix A345 for a couple of years and its always worked fine, but now when I turn it on it will only go to the video mode. I try to change it to take pictures but it won't do anything. I can take video, but no pictures and can't even check what the video came out like because it won't switch. Please help me!

On the remote control, there is a blue "Magic Mic" button. Press on that your mic will turn on in any mode.
Just joking but I've been mad about how bad this LG home theater system is. It can only play extremely limited video files and turn off the mic in AUX mode. So the answer is you really can't do that. Buy a mixer instead.
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.
I rang Fujifilm and they said that the finepix A345 can only take up to 1gig cards. So have to take my 2gig back which sux. The say Olympus cards may not be able to be read by the camera. So will be taking my camera with me when i exchange my 2 gig.
all figured out,,,,the shutter button is too close to the shut off button,its happened to me many times ,next time it happns try to catch yourself and see which button you pressed,,guaranteed!!! it sucks
If you haven't tried already, try changing the batteries to high-drain Nimh or Energiser 2800MAh batteries. I had loads of problems with my camera until I put stronger batteries in it, now it works wonderfully again.
The three position switch for play,camera,video has likely broken. The plastic switch on the outside has a small contact plate held to the back of the switch on the inside with one small screw. I do have a replacement on hand if you are interested.
you are sure you are switching to Photo and not video?
Check the manual carefully.
This is a most unusual happening.
If you absolutely certain that this is what happening.
