Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

Gray cloudy spot in center of photos;distorted light streaks

I like my Lumix DMC-TZ3. I've had it over a year, but recently have started to experience some problems. I have a cloudy spot right in the center of my lens that affects some, but not all pictures. I can see it on the eyepiece side of the camera but not on the lens. It shows up in the pictures as a little cloudy patch. I also have been getting hazy distortion from lights now that I have to cover with my hands in order to get a better picture. Sometimes the lights have streaks through them. Thanks!

    I have a SONY CYBERSHOT P-52 for over 5 years.
    Suddenly, I have a cloudy round area in the middle of the picture. I can see it in the lcd before I shoot and at the picture taken. It usually appears outdoor but not all the times, I think it depends of the lighting (more sun, more cloudy area).
    Can someone help?

Time for another. Sell yours to a repairman in an ebay auction, keeping your accessories, and buy a working used on without accessories cheap.

Or this may be a good time to either buy another TZ3 refurb w/warranty(90 days I think) or a new one one Ebay. They are very reasonable since being replaced with the newer TZ5.

Screen flickers and pictures have lines across them on my lumix DMC-TZ3


The camera is probably damaged, this also happend to my DMC-TZ5 as well after a few (5-6) years of heavy use but without any visible damage, a repair is most likely more expensive than just buying one of the new lumix cameras which have also improved A LOT, so you wont be disappointed!

Lumix pictures blurry


I would suggest that the image stabilizer might not be working right. Could you upload a photo to Flickr or other location where I could look at the EXIF, or list it here. I would like to see what the camera is writing to the image as the settings when the photo was taken.

Does it make a difference when the image stabilizer is on or off?

All my recent photos are pink. Light sensitivity has gone wrong!


I think I'm having the same problem. If I take a fairly close up photo of someone, they appear very pink. If I take the same photo from further away and instead zoom in, it looks much better. This is a new problem. Never had anything like this before. I tried checking all of the same settings as anouska did. If I manually set the ISO to a higher number, it seems to correct the problem, but auto ISO gives the pink photos. Any advice?

Excessive amounts of Blue Colour on many shots.


You may have the white balance set to something other than auto white balance.

If the dark spot is not focused, it could be on the sensor. Otherwise, check the lens for any dust particles. If you can't find any dust, take the camera to an authorized service center.

Like mem card problems. Try another in the camera, try reading card on a computer via a usb port card reader. Try reformating card using camera FORMAT function.
