Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1 / DMC-FT1 Digital Camera
Took hundreds of underwater pics within 4 hours. Got home memory card is fine but the camera had cloudy marks in all 4 corners of the LCD screen and now it will not turn on. I have tried switching and charging all batteries including brand new replacements.
The cloudy spots tell me that water has entered the camera, this will be a very costly repair. you might be better off just replacing the camera as it will be cheaper than the repair bill on yours.

If you can see images in play mode, previously taken pics, then check to see if iris is opening and closing, could be seized vanes on iris motor. Tap on the lens(just not on the glass) repeatedly, this might help jog the vanes open. remove batteries, reinsert them after an hour, or a cup of coffee. If it persists press the reset button . all your settings will be cleared. Check to see if there's a second internal battery used for function memory, if there is, remove that one too for a while. Sounds a lot like the global CCD sensor problems that most manucturers had last year, but I don't remember anything regarding panasonic in that context. Use your warranty if valid Good luck

I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out Wikipedia.org for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.

I have been rummaging around trying to find two solutions: 1) to get my Toshiba Satellite card reader to read SDHC cards and 2) to get my desktop USB ports to read SDHC cards. While MS offers a hotfix for XP, it does not always work because of the different Chip Sets in computers. I have also read where posters say that the SDHC card works in the compter NOW, but NOW will not work in the camera... and the SDHC card NOW works in the camera but will NOT work in the computer.... I found a tekkie article that may help clear the air... SDHC cards are formatted in Fat32x (NOTICE the "x") and SD cards are formatted in Fat32 (no 'x') and these compatibility problems arise when the user unwittingly or unknowingly RE-formats the SDHC card, either when it is put in the computer and won't read or when it is put in the camera and won't read... but just don't bother to mention that THAT is what they did upon inserting the card and only proceeded to complain about an apparent incompatibility. The camera or computer might even mislead you asking if you want to format the card..... but all is not lost. The Panasonic site gives a program AND a pdf instruction book on How To ReFormat an SD or SDHC card specifying the proper Fat32x or Fat32 format. Hope this helps.
