The camera seems to be fine in every aspect but when i try to look my pictures or to get to the menu or any function that requires touching the screen when i touch it, a small hand with the pencil appears on the corner with the sign "OFF" like if the toucscreen had some hold, or lock function. but i cant use it. all the buttons on the hardware works perfectly but the screen is locked

Having looked at the full manual - downloaded from here and savable: http://tda.panasonic-europe-service.com/docs/2z54662404z3z38916z656ez706466z22zdf06e277f71e6367f9e09db70241478cb0ad23ae/tsn3/data/ALL/HXWA30EG/OI/902781/vqt4x32.pdf
I think you will find that you cannot actually change from 4:3 to 16:9 aspect ratio for a particular pixel sized picture. When you set the pixels for the picture you want, the aspect ratio is set automatically.
For example: 16Megapixels 4608x3456 4:3
12Megapixels 4608x2592 16:9 See page 96 of the manual mentioned above for a full table of Megapixels, size, ratio etc
Therefore changing the picture size from the simple menu changes the aspect ratio but you do not have control of the aspect ratio for each size, in other words you cannot take a 16Megapixel picture at 16:9, it has to be 4:3.
Hope this has been helpful
It is aboslutely normal. The aspect ratios on LCDs are different from the good ol' CRTs and CRT based projection tvs. As a matter of fact when I got my first LCD tv, it took me a few months to get used to it. You can try other aspect ratios though by going to Menu-> Picture->aspect ratio and try the different settings available to see if any of them works for you.
I just had this problem and got it solved. The issue is that your cable box is likely set to the wrong aspect ratio, so your tv will not be able to display the picture properly without this setting changed. On my cable box(Pace), you need to turn the power off to the cable box using the remote. Then hit the menu button on the remote and a new menu will appear on the screen. Change the aspect ratio to 16:9 and you should be all set. Hope this works for you too.
On you remote control or panel buttons press the menu button. Using you on screen menu, use the up and down arrows to find the Settings Function, use right arrow to enter sub-menu. Use the up and down arrows to find the aspect ratio setting. Use the right arrow to enter the sub-menu.From here you can change the picture setting to : Normal wide 1: Wide 2 : Zoom: Cinema. Once you found your preferred viewing picture, set you choice with the enter button. Then use the menu or escape buttons to close the on screen menu. I hope this helps you with your problem.
i know this is late, but my camera had the same problem. 1. If you go in the setup menu. 2. Push the right button once and scroll down to the menu that says format. 3. It will ask you if you want to erase all data. 4. Select No and everything should be fine.
it sounds like you have hit the zoom button or your aspect ratio isnt right. the aspect ratio should be set to 16:9 (if there isnt a button for aspect ratio, change it in the menu) and there should be a zoom button on your remote and just keep hitting that and it should return to normal. If neither works, post your tv brand and model and i'll try to find another answer
I called Hitachi and the solution is in your cable remote not your tv remote. Your tv has a aspect menu as does your cable remote. Based on your cable provider you should have a settings or menu button to change the zoom or aspect of your screen. I had the same problem and have Comcast as cable and this worked for me.
Hey, i have had the same problem for over a year. My camera also wasn't briefly showing me the pictures i took right after taking the picture like it used to. Last night i found the "Quick View" function was turned off in the menu (up arrow) of the camera, so i turned it back on. Today i tried the zoom function (i haven't tried it in a year) and IT WORKED!! So i think they are linked somehow.
So try going to your menu (up arrow) then scroll down until it goes to the next page of the menu. Select "Quick View" and turn it on. Then your zoom might work. It worked for me, but i don't know if mine is an isolated incedent.
