Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera

3 Answers

My panasonic lumix dcm-tz1 camera will not zoom.

I can only zoom a very small amount before a message saying "please turn camera off and then on again" appears on the screen. This message stays on the screen until the camera is turned off. I can still take pictures with it as long as I do not try to zoom but that is the whole point of this camera!

Hello mbradsh3

You have a gear that is getting stuck on something or it may be broken in the lens. Try bumping the camera on your palm when this happens and try it again. If that doesn't work, then either send it in if it is under warranty, or open it yourself and see if you can find the problem, or take it to a repair shop or send it to panasonic so that they can fix it.

The lens is struck

* Carefully inspect around it for dirt or debris

* If you see any dirt or debris around the lens, use canned air to gently blow it away

* After removing dirt and debris, turn the camera on and off

This should work
Hope this helps .

Sell it to a repairman on ebay and buy a good used, refurb or new replacement. I would ugrade to at least the wide angle 6Meg TZ3. The TZ5 is the newest TZ line.

Great cameras. I have the TZ3 and have never looked back.

I just had this problem, too. I basically disassembled the camera by removing the back cover, front cover, and top assembly. The top assembly includes a plastic part between a circuit board and the top external metal piece that houses the button on the top of the camera. On the circuit board there is a switch for the zoom that looks like a pinball flipper. You have to make sure that it's working properly and you may have to remove the metal dust cap and remove any sand if it's lodged in the mechanism. It's pretty tough if you're not good with your hands because it's extremely small. I did this and the zoom began working like normal again, but then I got the message that the camera needs to be turned on and off every time I turn on the camera...
