I've got a finepix A345 camera. Just recently the little hand symbol that appears on the screen to warn you that it's shaky won't go away even when the camera is on a flat surface. The pictures have all started to come out a bit blurry too. Does anyone know whats wrong with it?

Re: "Shake" warning symbol won't leave screen.
That shake warning will appear whenever the camera is in a low-light situation where the shutter speed is low and the images may blur. If it's coming on even in bright light, maybe you set the shutter speed to a fixed low setting? Either way, you may be able to shut off the warning in the settings of the camera.

What I've found with these cameras is that they can become overheated if left in a car, dashboard, or in direct sunlight. In most cases the screen will return to its "normal" after the camera has cooled down.
Blurred images can have different reasons. Greasy lens, camera shake or focus error.
You can clean a greasy lens with a lens-cleaner solution and lens-paper. Camera shake will (most likely) only occur on images taken without the flash. Most likely there will be a warning on the display if risk of shake. it's a hand with an "!". Focus error will usually also give a warning in the display.
Well, you send it off for repair to fujifilm (search google) and they will give you a quote, or you can guess that it is the LCD screen and replace it yourself. Search for Finepix A345 LCD and you'll usually find several suppliers, even on ebay. Some will even send you the little tool required to get into the camera. Prices range from £12 on ebay to £25 from parts shop.
This is the camera shake warning, and thus the blur. It is suggesting you are using too slow of a shutter speed for the lighting conditions. The flash should be set to "auto" in order that it will automatically fire if the light is insufficient. Check your flash settings to make sure it's not set to "slow-sync" or "fill-in" settings.
Fortunately I was able to locate my owner's manual. On page 82 of the manual it depicted the warning display that concerned me. The explanation: Tjere is a stronge liklihood of camera shake because the shutter speed is slow. Remedy: Use flash photography. However, use a tripod for some scenes ans modes.
Thanks so much for your prompt respond to my issue of concern.
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.
