I assume you have tried rotating the dial back and forth to try to clean the contacts when camera is off.

If this hasn't worked, try dropping some contact cleaner, available from radioshack or try alcohol first, with a toothpick under the edge of the dial when camera is on its back, at the same time rotating the dial back and forth. I haven't tried it, but the dial knob may pull off the camera if you can get a little pry under it.

If this doesn't work, consider getting a quote from a local camera shop, cause pana with be too expensive. Also, repairmen and those upgrading to the TZ5 sell very good TZ3's on ebay, and will buy yours the way it is. The difference you would pay for a sell and buy ebay will likely be less than a repair bill by a camera shop.

NO IMAGES IN DISPLAY


Rich,

http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMCTZ2.pdf

I believe you have some sort of Dual display on your camera where you can view pictures on a TV. That might be the problem check your settings perhaps page 23 of the pdf manual above the display might have been bumped to off. Or perhaps the picture you took was really set to video mode on accident if you discover this is the case then check out playback mode on page 62. Try turning your dial to playback. Perhaps your pictures are on the internal memory.
Or if nothing is showing on the screen at all you might just have a faulty screen that went out and you'll find the service center info on page 101 good luck.

Pics are blank in viewer


there are many reasons that no picture is displayed:
1. there is no picture in the first place. (camera lens closed when picture was taken)
2. you are not on display mode (toggle to display mode not "take picture" or capture mode)
3. defective memory card.
4. you are on display mode but on another sub-mode which does not display pics... (toggle to display, details, etc...)

How do you delete multiple pictures from the panasonic lumix DMC TZ3.  What mode and or functions on the camera do I use to delete multiple pictures at once?


Hi,
The quickest way to multiple delete pictures from you camera after you have copied or backed them up is to use the camera's menu to format the camera or/and card.




Regards.

Aerial photos


My DMC-TZ3 always displays this message when in aerial mode - I would think that Panasonic programmed this into the setting.  You might never have noticed the message before or never used the aerial mode before ??

How tu use video recording..


Hi,

The picture that I posted shows a TZ3 mode dial. I added a blue arrow to point out an icon on the mode dial.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Turn the mode dial on the camera so this icon is selected.
2. Switch on the camera.
3. Aim the camera at your subject, press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to begin the video. (Just as you would take a picture.)
4. To stop taking video, press the shutter button fully again.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~When a video starts being taken, its current length will appear on the camera's LCD screen.
~Videos take up more space on the memory card than do pictures.
~If an SD memory card becomes full while recording, then the video will stop automatically.
~Videos can be played back on the camera's "PLAYBACK" mode. They can also be viewed on a TV or downloaded to a computer.

Lumix TZ3 lens does not open


It is not clear if you are saying whole camera turns off or just screen turns off.

Notice before the camera went bad the lense does not extend in play mode, while it does in record mode. Many cameras have software that automatically turns camera off if lens cannot/fails to extend for some reason. Try to help it extend in record mode before camera turns off.
