SOURCE: lumix DMC- FZ30 - screen is black when camera is turned on

I understand that you've tried all the obvious tricks like resetting to factory settings etc.
Sounds like a CCD/shutter failure I'm afraid. FZ30 are not known for failing CCDs, but I've seen shutters fail on various lumix-es, so in this case I would suggest replacing the shutter. To be precise, replacing the shutter itself is a massive pain in the **** on this camera. It's much easier to replace the whole lens-it contains the shutter. You'll need to get a donor camera (ebay ;) and do the transplant. Swapping the lens is relatively easy if you're ok with midly fiddly things. Oh, and make sure you take notes which screws go where when dismantling the camera - and be careful with ribbon cables for the LCD.
Good luck,

SOURCE: Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ30 - LCD white screen.

Firstly, use the following information at your own risk, I am simply providing my own findings for informational purposes. It may or may not be the solution to your problem. If you want a professional opinion, go to a camera repair specialist...

I have had the exact same problem. The screen on my Panasonic DMC-FZ30 started to go white with lines through it in certain positions, and then in all positions. Finally it went black.

I took my camera apart to try and find the source of the issue with my screen (by the way if you want to take your dmc-fz30 apart, there is a fantastic service manual download for free at: or if that does not work try ).

I believe the issue stems from the contacts of the rotating screen. I would hazard a guess that somewhere along the flexi-cable there is some wear which has caused this to occur...
I have not yet solved the problem, however I do have two potential solutions.

1. I found a site where you can buy a replacement flexi-cable for the camera. The site is ( The cable costs approx $12 (not sure which currency, it doesn't say).
The issue with this solution, after taking apart my camera, I could find no way to remove the cable completely from the swivel joint at the base of the screen. So you would probably have to buy the part and take it to a professional. (probably check first whether it is even possible to replace, I assume it is, as they sell the part...just my guess).

2. The second solution (easier in my opinion, but a bit more expensive I'm guessing). You can buy a replacement screen for the camera. Contact Panasonic for your closest spare parts distributor. I do not know the price for a replacement screen, but I would estimate that it is between $30 to $50 AUD. I would then install the part myself as it is fairly easy if you follow the service manual. However if you would prefer not to do it yourself, I would seek the help of a camera specialist to replace it...

By the way, just to put a repair in perspective. You can PROBABLY (not definitely) buy a second hand 'Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30' for somewhere between $80 to $120 AUD...

Hope that helps

Lumix DMC- FZ30 - screen is black when camera is turned on

Check if you have activated the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). Press the EVF/LCD button to switch to the LCD screen. If this fails to solve the problem, change the mode dial to Auto (the red camera icon) or 'P' and try again. If even this does not work, check with the nearest authorized service center.
