Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera
Just changed out the ccd on this model to fix a very dark (almost black) image and now I have a purple/magenta image.
Sounds like the CCD unit you just installed has a problem or the camera has a problem processing images which is the main system board. Sorry but it sounds like you are beating a dead horse.

It is apparanetly the ccd sensor letting to much light in those made around 2005 or so were faulty and ther is a chance of it being fixed or camera replaced as there was a recall of sorts done on thes eccd sensors in many brands of cameras

It depends on how wet it was, if the entire thing was submerged, or even a large portion, it probably will not.it may turn on but it is likely that the lens will be damaged permanently. However if it was just wet upon the outside, like it was used out side during a rain fall, and then wiped dry every thing should be fine.It all depends,try drying it out thoroughly, letting it sit out with all lens caps and lens attachments removed, battery doorway open. is the best thing you can do. I hope that everything works out for you. God bless...

Make sure the write protect lock is off by taking the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this .
Hope this helps.

The display being black can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the display is not seen, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.
However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the camera aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
