Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A350 Digital Camera ?

Will not turn on, lens housing comes out, immediately retracts, camera shuts off. Plus, the On/Off button keeps sinking deeper and deeper into the housing!


Answers :

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.
