Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera ?

Turns on only for split second!

\015 When you press the power button it only switches on(green light shows) for a split second and then no power. Its not the batteries because Ive tried several new ones in it and same result. Help, should I get new camera????\015

Answers :

I was just trying to solve this exact same problem on my girlfriends A345 and upon inspecting the battery door I noticed a small tab had been broken off. I lined up the tab and just above the memory card where it says push to eject there is a slot. In that slot is a tiny black pressure switch that the broken off tab used to depress. I stuffed a small piece of wire in there and hit power and it works just as it did :) hope this solves your problem as I'm sure these tiny tabs break off without people noticing since the battery door closes and locks without them

Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.


It seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is vi ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

Camera shutdown I've had my Canon Powershot A85 for around 2 years. Around a few dats ago, I was showing friends pictures from a holiday to America, when it appeared the batteries had run out, but the lens never retracted, which it usually would do. I attempted to turn the camera on again, and it turned on for a split second, but i never thought to look at the screen for an error mesage, but it just turned off again. Nothing was spilled on the camera, and it wasn't dropped, or any other

Power issues. Just recently I've encountered a problem with my camera. After plugging it into my computer (And not noticing the power surge notification on the desktop while doing so).

Hi, I have just bought the Fuji JX530. When I take a picture I get a split second clicking sound coming from the lens before the flash goes and the picture is taken. The picture is fine and the mechanism moves smoothly when turned on/off and zoomed in/out. Is this just the normal operating sound of the lens or something else ??

My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off.

At the time the screen shows the green Optio screen for a split second and then shows an out of focus shot of whatever the camera is pointing at, bef
