    The menu of Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 Digital Camera is only in japanese. I cannot find the icon ''face that speaks'' and change the language.

    In Italiano non ci sono download disponibili, adesso cerco in inglese.

    Fino adesso l'unico firmware disponibile per scaricare e' quello Giapponese.

    Intanto scarica il manuale in italiano.

    Torno fra dieci minuti, vediamo se trovo una versione in Inglese.

    Allora, il firmware non e' disponibile, pero puoi cambiare il linguaggio come e' spiegato qui: 1. An unreadable language was selected by mistake.

    Fammi sapere se hai difficolta' se mi trovi offline, in genere rispondo in un ora o due.

    Riporto le istruzioni:

      Press [MENU/SET], select the [SETUP] menu icon [ ] and then select the [ ] icon to set the desired language.

      Premi [MENU/SET], seleziona [SETUP] (l'icona con la chiave ) [ ] poi seleziona l'icona con una faccina ed un fumetto per selezionare il linguaggio [ ]

    Guarda che se vai giu nel setup menu, quello con la chiave da meccanico, dovresti trovare il menu Language, che forse nella tua camera e' in giapponese, da quanto ho capito.

    Qui c'e il manuale in inglese piu completo.

    A pagina 23 inizia a spigare il setup menu, a pagina 27 c'e' language.

    Secondo il manuale le voci del setup menu iniziano con l'orologio e sono:

    1. Clock

    2. World time

    3. Monitor

    4. LCD

    5. beep

    6. volume

    7. guideline

    8. histiogram

    9. travel date

    10. economy

    11. auto review

    12. no reset

    13. reset

    14. usb mode

    15. Video out

    16. Tv aspect

    17. m/ft

    18. touch guide

    19. format

    20. Calibration

    21. Language

    22. Demo mode
    al posto 21 c'e la faccina con qualcosa in giapponese.

    Se non la trovi fammelo sapere.

It is possible that you got a discounted non international version.

They sometimes sell them at a reduced cost. But... Go to Panasonics website and download the owners manual and see if you can navigate as the manual shows. Send them an email if the menu item is missing. If not make a Japanese friend.

Dmc-zs20, I have a japanese version and I need it to display in english.

Press the MENU/SET button. Select Setup (should be the fourth item). Select the next-to-the-last item on the menu (the talking head icon).

How to change the language to english because its in japanese language?

You can download the manual (in english) from here .....;jsessionid=0a6d28f030d771f7f5cda5bb4afaa2aa879f33d20d0a.e34MaN0RbxyTbO0LbxiRax4Kb30Pe6fznA5Pp7ftolbGmkTy?trackInfo=true

The important thing to note is that irrespective which language its in, the menu choices are the same in all languages. i.e. if menu choice one is <data> in english, its the same in Japanese - even if it looks like a stream of rather pretty characters.

Menu language is dealt with on page 29 of the manual. It looks like a simple change if you recognise the icons they have used.
