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

What's wrong with the machine when the thread is skipping on top and bottom.

hi, it could be several things

damaged needle---try new needle

needle is not correctly inserted into machine----flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine

wrong size needle for the fabric--choose a needle to suit thread & fabric

the wrong foot is attached--select correct foot

if you check all these things & they don't help then it's possible the machine is out of time

Hey jlnatc,
According to the manufacturer if the battery is inserted the wrong way you should be unable to remove the battery, and you should not use force in trying to remove it. You should bring it to an authorized service center and they should be able to remove the battery. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out to have it serviced, or you could contact the manufacturer and they usually have a list of authorized service centers. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

A tool known as "duck-billed" pliers works for the stuck in the wrong way battery syndrome. They are flat-nosed, pliers of the "needle-nose" variety.

Battery inserted wrongly and now cannot remove

I did the same thing. Don't send it back. I used my fingernail (it hurt like hell), and then used a blunt end of a spoon. It doesn't break very easy, jsut don't dig in, cut it, or put force on that black plastic part.

Battery inserted wrongly and now cannot remove

The battery should still be removeable - have you tried to move it or turn camera so the the open chamber is facing down and tapping the camera
