Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't boot software

When I turn on my DMC-FZ7, all I get is a white display. Normally when you turn on the camera, you can hear the lens moving in position. Mine only displays a white screen and that's it. After a few minutes, the display is automatically turned off. I guess this is the power management. The camera does not respond to any button. Any ideas?

Picture not focused at 12x zoom

It's probably something to do with a lag or jam on your shutterspeed. so when you hit the button, and move you get a little blur. If its not this you might need to have your lens cleaned inside and out due to the camera zooms and catches the blurs on the lens after zooming so far in. I would recommend taking it to your local camera shop for adjustments and cleaning.

DMC-FZ7 software for Macintosh

You don't need any software.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as iPhoto which is already on your Mac.

After loading (and using) the photofun software on

You need to boot in safe mode. Usually, this means to press F8 key repeatedly after turning on your computer. Once in safe mode, go into add/remove programs and remove the offending software. Then, reboot normally and you should be good to go.

Flash not working on panasonic lumix fz7

Go into menu, setup function, turn OFF "conversion lens" or anything like that. NOTE: a conversion lens is a lens that screws onto front of lens of your camera and the flash would get blocked by it, so there is a function in the menu that turns the flash off when a conversion lens is attached to the camera. If this works, STOP PLAYING AROUND WITH THE MENU TILL YOU READ THE MANUAL. LOL.
