Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The flash on my Panasonic DMC-FZ100 doesn't work, I've tried 'forced flash' and thats not working either?

Flash pops up but does not light up when needed, so the picture taken is always dark. Can you replace the bulb inside the flash?

Hello Ray, This is not something a user wants to attempt !!! The camera really needs to be repaired by a tech. You will do more harm than good by trying to fix it yourself and will cost even more if you damage something.

Best Regards, Russell

SOURCE: my flash bulb doesn't work, picture are dark

Do you have it turned off? Is there a picture of a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt until the screen shows a lightning bolt and an "a". Also, do you have the camera set on a scene mode such as night? The flash won't go off in some scene modes.

Flash wont work


AS you know, cameras are very sophisticated and delicate, and messing with it yourself might lead to more damage..It sounds like maybe you have a connection or connector that may have corrosion on it that is getting worse over time. That's what I would look for. If you don't see anything obvious after taking whatever you need to apart to see the areas that moisture may have gotten into, I would take it to a qualified technician to have it diagnosed..Good luck.

Flash wont work


Although I strongly advice not to do it yourself, since you have a working camera, the worst you can do is not to finish the project and you have to do all the shooting with the LZ200.
You should have a look on the site ifixit dot com. There they not only promote the right to repair yourself the stuff you own, they also help with videos and manuals about how to open everything. Not sure the LZ100 is there to, but perhaps you are the one that will send in the video? That is also the place where you can buy tools you need I have a set my son has a set ;-). They also can send you spare parts.
About your camera, what you can expect: The snide won't look pretty.
On some places, the water has formed white spots (can be large) and because it was there long is will have oxidised some connections. You should clean everything without sharp tools and check the flash condensor for bad contacts, but also if it still has its capacity.
Every where you see white spots are possible bad contacts.
It is almost impossible to solder in a camera. so you have to be inventive. Look on ifixit

FZ-100 shows number +/- 1-1/3 next to the flash icon in circle, what does that mean, flash is working ok but seams not enough flash power


This probably means the flash power is set to 1/3 of the full flash power.
Go into the camera's Menu and change the flash setting.
OR
If you cannot find how to change this setting, then remove the battery for 15 mins, replace the battery then go to the camera's Menu to set the Date & Time. the camera will be restored to the default settings.

It's not the firmware, it's the software on your computer. You need to update Adobe Camera RAW. You can get it here for Windows or Mac.

The flash may exceed the voltage it sends to the camera. It doesn't take much to fry the electronics in the camera if the flash isn't designed for the camera.

Flash not working


"Forced on" means the flash is forced. Try "Forced OFF". Note that there are several options and scenes when the flash is enabled by default.

Panasonic DMC-FZ1 Flash still not working


If you have a lightning symbol followed by “A” in the upper left corner of display, try to change it to forced flash (only lightning symbol) or reduce iso settings because probably the camera “thinks” there’s sufficient light for the photo.

Flash is not working


The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).
