    Same problem here. One day fine then just a blurry mess. How do you get support, service or replacement of the CCDS unit is that is the problem. Purchased the camera in 2009

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

SOURCE: my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 was soaked in water.

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...

Check the menus, if they work, then there is a possible ccd sensor defect.

SOURCE: How do you unlock the memory card on the Panasonic

Hi,
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 59a6de4.jpg .

Hope this helps.


Good luck

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9PP and the monitor suddenly went completely dark and has stayed that way. What caused this and how can I reverse/fix it?


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.

I have a panasonic tmc tz3 camera that has a purple color when i try to take a picture


Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble. This is a common problem on these models. It is either a faulty CCD sensor or LCD panel. If this is a problem while taking new images,however old images are still perfect - this indicates a problem with CCD sensor unless this is an indication of faulty LCD panel. Unfortunately, in both situations, repair is never advisable as the cost of repair would be high as compared to cost of the camera. It would be wise to invest in new camera. Be advised that if it is faulty CCD sensor, there were few recalls in the past for old models.So, it would be worth giving a call to their customer service and ask whether there is any recall or not. If not, they might offer a replacement in lieu of this camera at a highly discounted price.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The screen seems not to get light from outside everything is sort of purple


Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.



Hope this helps to solve it (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Its a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. all on a sudden, LCD is not working. Monitors remains dark when I press 'On' button and the photo taken are also dark. However old photos on the SD card I can in the screen...


Hello

If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 spots on pictures


Upgrade to the TZ3 or TZ5. TZ3 is smaller and has a great wide angle lens. You can get a very good buy on Ebay for a used or new TZ3 because it has been replaced with the latest TZ5.

You can likely get about $40 dollars for yous, if it has all the stuff it shipped with, even with the problem you mention, since repairmen buy time to fix and resell on ebay.
