Re FinePix A370. Im having trouble getting the macro icon

Customer Question

Re FinePix A370. I'm having trouble getting the macro icon to show on the LCD. Sometimes I can get it, sometimes not. I mostly use my camera for photographing documents in archives where flash isn't allowed. So I need to set my camera to macro with flash off. I bought my camera around 2005.

Customer:

Hi Nathan. Thank you for your reply. My apologies: I should have said that the macro feature has always worked well in the past, and has only just stopped working.

Customer:

Hi Nathan -- sorry, I sent the reply before I'd finished typing it. Do you have any tips on how to get the macro button working again?

nathan_mills :

Are you getting any message or the button is not doing anything?

Please rate the solution positively.

Customer:

Button is not doing anything.

This means that the contact of the button from the internal circuitry is broken. You will have to get it repaired by a technician.
