Camera Frozen in "On" Position

\015 My camera froze in the "on" position while trying to take a video. I've tried inserting brand new batteries and connecting it to a computer, but nothing will make it turn back on. Any ideas on how to get it to finally turn back on work again?\015

Answers :

Hi, I read somewhere that this happens with alkaline batteries, but I have had the same problem with my rechargables (...don't use alkaline batteries in this camera). Anyway, removing the batteries with the camera in the off position and replacing them with fully charged ones usually clears the freeze. I also carry a spare CRV-3 just in case the rechargables go flat and this can help overcome the problem. Just don't leave it in the camera as they are too expensive to have it flatten them overnight!

This camera was working fine, was turned off, and then a day later wouldn't work. The LCD screen on back works only if the Mode Switch is in the review mode (or DOWN), and does not light up under the picture taking mode (or UP) position. Also, while the switch is in the UP position, the ON/OFF power indicator button no longer stays lit. It does, however, stay lit in the Mode Switch in the DOWN position. First problem in three years. Nice little camera.

I just set the date stamp in the on position. Then, turned the camera off as I didn't need to take a picture.

The battery is fully charged and the camera even does this when I have it on the charger.

Fuji a345 I have a 2 year old Fuji a345 which periodically has a problem with the lens cover not opening and, of course, the lens not extending into position when the camera is powered on. Generally turning the camera off and on a few times will eventually result in the lens cover opening and allowing the lens to extend into proper position for shooting pictures. Any ideas.
