Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 spots on pictures

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 which is showing spots on all the pictures. This is likely due to dust on the CCD sensor. This is easy to fix on an SLR type camera, but I have no idea how to get to the sensor on this camera. Is it possible to remove the lens to get to the CCD or is there an easier solution. I really hate to have to pay Panasonic $160 to clean my camera as that's half the cost of a new unit. Thanks for any suggestions!

Upgrade to the TZ3 or TZ5. TZ3 is smaller and has a great wide angle lens. You can get a very good buy on Ebay for a used or new TZ3 because it has been replaced with the latest TZ5.

You can likely get about $40 dollars for yous, if it has all the stuff it shipped with, even with the problem you mention, since repairmen buy time to fix and resell on ebay.

When capturing picture in open-air at time of night.... my dmc f3 cam shows spots in picture spots if dust particles present in the air which spoil the look of picture :( plz help


If these are flash pictures, you are experiencing dust particles in the air reflecting the flash back into the camera lens. This is a problem with point and shoot cameras because the flash is so close to the lens.

Check if you can take pictures , if you can take picture the same and tranfer them to computer, then it is either a faulty lcd display, or the display cable out of place

How to clean a panasonic lumix dmc ts1 lens. i get spots when i take pictures


If the spots appear on flash pics only and are in different places on each photo, then the spots are not on your lens. Those are dust particles reflecting the light from your flash. It's a common problem with point-and-shoot cameras.

Panasonic lumix dmc-tz1 SD card - card reader


My guess is either the cardreader or its driver is outdated. Search for the latest driver for this reader, as well as others with a similar problem as your, on the internet. The reader itself may also be hardware defective.

You can get a very good, but dated, laptop with USBs on ebay at a good price. The other alternative, if you have a dated laptop, then you can get a PCMCIA Card-to-USB converter card for your computer at a low price on either ebay or Amazon. Amazon sells used product too.

Downloading pictures to my pc


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at
