Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera ?

Fugi Z10 I managed to insert the battery in the wrong direction and is stuck now. Is there a straight forward way to remove or is a job for a specialist?


Answers :

This is pretty common. Get some small pliers, which are known as "duckbill" needle-nose pliers. They're flat, needle-nose pliers which will allow you to stick the tips into the small space on top and bottom of the stuck battery, and gently wiggle it out. If it's really, really wedged in, you may pull off the end cap of the battery, if you're not careful. At that point you'd still need to remove the battery's remains, and get yourself a new one (battery, not camera). I've saved several customer's cameras this way. Good luck.

Fokusing .. I have repaired my stucked lenses but along the way, made another problem. I've broken a little flat 6-wire cable that goes into the lenses. Managed to repaire that also, but now I haven't managed to have a bright focused picture in zero fokus position. Is it called bad back fokus? So , i have been told. If a fokus picture just a little bit, everything is fine. Now I am looking for service manual with zoom/lenses assembly instructions. I have an idea, what should I do, but I would ra

Samsung L730 My camera appears to be stuck. The lens usually pops out when it is turned on. However, when I turned it off today, it remained out. I tried removing the memory card and battery. Also, it won't turn off unless I remove the battery. When it is on, the screen is black and the usual green light goes off after initially pressing the power button. Is there a way to reset it?

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.

I have an older pair of zoom lense Bushnell binoculars, 40mm with 7 to 21 power. I used to have a cabin in a very humid, mildewy area of Florida and it seems that the mold (mildew) has found its way into the lens whereupon it really messes up the viewing. I took the end pieces off and cleaned the insides with camera lens cleaning items and that helped, but I think the eye pieces need to be removed to finish the job. How do you do that? I'm not sure they are screwed onto the body! Has anyo

I wish to remove the write protection from my Sony handycam so I can remove files from it via the PC, but so far I haven't found any way this can be done. I cannot access my files on the actual camera as the screen is broken so nothing is visible on it when I turn on the camera. Is there any way I can remove the write protection without having access to the buttons on the camera?

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS, the lens barrel is stuck in the furthest extended position. It was left alone and not operated for several months, though I have replaced the battery. The camera turns on for about 3 seconds at a time, I tried to turn it on several times with the lens barrel inching forward each time. It stopped going forward and has become stuck in what appears to be the furthest-extended position.There does not appear to be any particulates obstructing the lens barrel as far

Hello, I have a Cannon IXUS 95 IS. I accidentally removed some very important photos recently and I was wondering if there is any way to recover them. I am desperate to find a way to do this as they are very unique and sentimental photos. The reason I removed them was because I attempted to condense my already full memory card and went into the main menu. There I went to the "format memory card" page and pressed OK. I was unaware that formatting the memory card meant that all of my photos woul

The lens won't come all the way out- it makes clicking noises like it wants to and kind of bounces it but doesn't come out the rest of the way. If I push the zoom button over and gently twist, it will come out all the way. Once I turn the camera off and back on it gets stuck again. (I don't know for sure the model #- I don't have it with me right now but I got it about 3 years ago.)
