FujiFilm A850 Clicking Noise... A900 Shutter Turns Itself Off?

\015 I own a A850, my brother a A860 - my sister a A900. We use them quite regular from month to month.\015\012\015\012Weve come to use them for the Christmas Holidays - and they ALL have stopped working?\015\012\015\012My A850 and my brothers A860 just wont turn on - even with new batteries... It just makes a clicking noise when you hold down the button!?\015\012\015\012My sisters A900 turns on - but when you press the shutter button to take a picture - it turns itself off!?\015\012\015\012Please please please help - we're leaving on our Family Retreat the day after tomorrow - and were ALL without cameras!\015\012\015\012Well probably end up going to Tesco and buying a load of rubbish replacement cameras - but if there is a quick fix - we'd really love to know!\015\012Is it a cold room thing? Do they need to warm up? Does it need a reset?\015\012\015\012They were all fine only 30 days ago, but they have been left in the Garage, which is cold - could that affect it?\015

Answers :

It could be the cold affecting them but I suspect it's a battery problem.
\015\012If you use normal alkaline AA's then the camera will drain them fast. Try using the lithium type which has a higher Amh for use in high drain electronic gadgets like cameras.
\015\012The cold weather will affect things like cameras, especially when you bring them in from the cold after long periods. Condensation will form inside the camera and cause short circuits or component failure unless you allow the camera to aclimatise to room tempreture gradually before using it.
\015\012Condensation can also have an effect on the shutter inside the lens. It cannot evaporate well inside the lens unit because it is sealed and so leaves a residue on the shutter leafs that can cause the shutter to either stick or not work fully and you get either wavey lines on the pictures that you take or they come out over exposed or too bright.
\015\012Leave the camera for 24 hours at room tempreture and buy ( if you haven't already got) some lithium batteries and then try the camera

Strange noises I bought it last week and its makes strage "clicky" noises when on. I've exchanged it twice and all 3 have made the same noises. Is this normal?

Error-C1 I was on holiday in dusty hot conditions when my second hand camara became unusable. I turned the camara on to take a photo and the zoom lens and shutter became stuck. The screen went blue and 'error-C1' appeared on the screen. Every time I turned it on thereafter the same blue screen came up and it makes a strange mechanical noise when I turn it on. It also turns itself off after a few seconds but the zoom still doesn't shut. The battery symbol still appeared but it appeared to be out
