Panasonic lumix fz38 shutter button

My shutter button has lost its pressure, i.e I can press it down to take picture, theres no sponge under button, if you know what I mean. Can I repair this myself and how! Help any advice, its too expensive to repair privately and cost nearly as much as the camera, ridiculous! Also would this effect my flash? it comes up fine but at the same time as button went , my flash stopped working? thanks

SOURCE: Panasonic TZ1 flash problems!!

Panasonic knows about this and can fix it. It involves replacing a circuit board. I sent them my camera (Elk Grove Village, IL repair facility) at the beginning of Dec with a letter giving six web sites reporting the problem and asking them to fix it free of charge. I don't think the camera was on warranty, but I received it back, fixed, and with no charge, in about a week. Panasonic really came through on this and there is clearly no fix other than this one... except to stop trying to take flash pictures.

SOURCE: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 shutter doesn't close all the way and gives message "please turn camera off then on again"

My camera got dropped into the dirt. The dirt grains are detrimental to the plastic mechanics of the lens system, they imbed themselves into the plastic and become like sand paper. I took my whole camera apart - something that I would not recommend but I was desparate. I don't think I can save my camera, it needs a new optics.

If the shutter has problems it is most likely that the thin aluminum casing at the front of the lens got bent and you may be able to bend it back with a thin screw driver, that you can manage to insert between the plastic casing of the shutter and the aluminum cover. Just where the aluminum casing ends at the front of the lens. But be careful, you may otherwise damage the aluminum and the looks of your camera. If you got dirt in there, you may want to manually (carefully) open the shutter when the camera is shut off, let it close, etc. while blowing air between the gaps of the shutter blades. You can buy a 'Cleaning Duster' spray bottle from Office Depot and use that. But be carefull to hold the bottle straight, don't tilt it or the liquid content will spray over your lens and you have to clean the oily residue with a solution of soap and water (I had to) and wet a paper tissue (use a Kleenex that is not impregnated with a lotion, on the back of the box it will tell you 'Not recommended for cleanig eyeglasses'.

Hope that helps.

If that doesn't work, then you may have to send the camera in for repair.

If it is only 2 months old,then you still have warranty.
A purple lcd, viewfinder and photo is a 100% CCD failure.
If out of warranty, not worth the repair.

Go into the setup menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. This procedure might work. If you can't get into the menu because of malfunctioning buttons, try a manual reset...remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...insert the card first and then the battery...turn it on.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS5 digital camera. My pictures often are blurry & not crisp. Help. All reviews & friends recommended this camera. Even if I use sport mode this happens. Most of...


With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on object at normal distance.

USERS MANUEL in English needed


Go to the support section of the Panasonic website and enter Lumix FZ35. That's the same camera in the USA. If your camera comes in a color, you will need to add the letter of your color.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera Problem


Possibly the shutter release (the "take a picture button") or the mechanism under it is getting stuck down and not coming back up to let you take a second shot.

Try cleaning under there with a can of compressed air. Be careful because the release button is super fragile - looks big but only held on underneath by a tiny stalk about the size of a pin (I know because mine broke off when the camera dropped). Panasonics are light but fragile, others, like Sony, heavier but much more solid.
