Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A900 Digital Camera ?

My finepix a900 takes pictures but then I get a "write error" and it does not save to the xd card. Is it the card or the camera that is faulty?


Answers :

Try another card, that will tell you. Try to clean the contact legs on the card with a soft cloth and at least 90% alcohol, and make sure the legs inside the camera are clean- blow out the card compartment with compressed air, and clean the legs with a qtip and alcohol if they still look even slightly dirty. If you're still having problems, it can be something like a ribbon connector slightly ajar in the camera, or some other internal problem that would require servicing. That's all I can think of, good luck.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?
