  • danielerega Jan 24, 2009

    A friend of mine brought me a LUMIX DMC TZ5 in Japan and we discover back home that the language is stuck in japanese.
    I know that 'cause my friend is Japanese and she read the entire menu.
    I'm considering changing the firmware, but I'm not sure it's a good idea.
    Can you help me?

    How do you know that there are no language options if you cannot handle the Japanese. That only means you cannot speak Japanese which shows, how do you know that there is no Language Options?

I'm afraid you will not be able to change the firmware on TZ5 (not easily anyway).
Standard firmware update runs a locale-check on the camera before attempting to flash it and will fail if the locale doesn't match.
You might try searching the net for hacked firmware update files. I haven't seen any for this particular camera though.
It might be a better idea to bite the bullet and sell the camera on ebay.
Good luck-

Select menu
Select spanner(wrench) for setup menu.
Scroll down through the menu, there are five pages of menu items on my camera! it moves to a new page when you move off the bottom.
The language option is the penultimate item - it has an icon of a head with a speech bubble.
