Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera
My FZ18K is having a "turn power off and on again" problem. I would like to repair it myself. Does anybody know where I can download the service/repair manual free?
Question is the problem just that though the power button is switched to "On" the power is off and it doesn't want to come back on terribly quickly? It may be that your power save mode is set to quickly (The camera can be set to go into powersaving mode after as little as 30 seconds of inactivity) if this is the case you will be VERY frustrated because the camera will feel like it's going on and off without any say from you (which it is--but it's not broken!!!)
The feature is a good one--because I can't tell you how many times I've left this camera dangling around my neck or put it in the bag while eating lunch and left it in the "on" position which would have zapped my battery-this way | don't run out as quickly!
I have my power save set at 5 mins of inactivity which works for me--you may wish to have longer or shorter depending upon your needs.
Please read the manual on adjusting the power save feature.
Remember that making adjustments to all of the menus available is not possible in the IA (Intelligent Auto) mode or in the Preview Mode on your dial. Dial to any other mode and THEN follow the mamual's directions regarding adjusting menu staus.
I hope this helps... Note if you "Google" DMC-FZ18 manual you will find a link to the Pdf for the manual eventually (it's in the top 10-20 links or so from panasonic--and is on their website for free download).
