Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A360 Digital Camera ?

Will not power up, even with fresh batteries - Fuji FinePix A360 Digital Camera

Answers :

I did some research and from my personal experience from when i put non rechargable batteries in my charger and left them and the gook in the battery corroded the metal contacts.Looking down inside my Fuji's battery compartment one thing comes to mind....its a long way down to the bottom how am i gonna get something down there?Well first off lets get rid of any battery acid by neutralizing it.Well i have a can of battery corrosion cleaner which works great on my car battery (Bought at auto store) Well you probably want to use something cheaper than store bought stuff so - basically its baking soda and alittle peroxide (the stuff you bleached your hair with) on a dish of some kind make alittle pile about half a tea spoon will do,now add just a little peroxide-yeah the stuff will fizz alittle not to worry-make a paste (like tooth paste).Ok,you don't need much-swab some on a cotton tip swab-stick it down inside and work it all around the metal contact area-repeat with a clean swab till it looks good-now use clean swabs to remove any residue.If the problem is really bad i suggest you now purchase some steel wool-med corse will do (hardware store ask for it).Pull off a small amount-enough to wrap around the tip of cotton swab-if need be use some masking tape to hold the wool on tip-you want the most on the tip!now work the tip all around untill you see the metal is clean.Since acid corrodes the metal will look dull but clean.Now use a can of air to blow out all the little pieces of steel wool that shed from the swab.Do the same to contacts on battery lid but instead of useing a cotton swab to steel wool the contacts just go ahead and sand with a wad of wool (make sure you clean off any little pieces of steel wool on both the top and bottom of battery contacts).Hope this helps someone,Gary Malcontent
You may have a more serious problem that will require professional repair, but the problem that you describe may be due to corrosion\015\012on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full\015\012battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy\015\012corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand\015\012paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery\015\012compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and\015\012reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about\015\01290% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

I have a Fuji FinePix A345. It is out of warranty. I put freshly-charged batteries in, take one or two pics, then get a low batter-reading, followed by the camera shutting off power. I took batteries out, checked them on a battery tester, and they both still had a full charge (2500 mAh), but camera won't even turn on. I was just reading consumer reviews on the A345 advertising page. Apparently this model can be a real lemon. Anything I can do to fix the camera? Or do I just toss it and bu

My Fuji 1500s 10 Mp camera will now power on when USB cable is connected.

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

I need a new BATTERY DOOR for my Fuji Finepix S7000. I tried to order just the door from numerous sources & they could not get it (because Fuji insists on me sending my entire camera to them)! This repair would take 60 seconds IF I could just get a door....I finally sent the entire camera to Fuji & they charged me over $100. Obviously the door is flimsy, but I love the camera. Would like to order the door ONLY (and maybe even a spare for future similar problem) Thanx!

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.
