Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery life Hi, here is my problem; the battery of my Lumix dmc-fx7 lasts for about 5 to 10 pictures, if it is really cold outside (skiing or winter hikes) it last for about 3 pictures... I have two different batteries, and none of them makes a difference... is it possible, that there is something wrong with my charger? or is it the camera, that needs to be fixed??? can anyone help me???? thanks a lot

Re: battery life

Hi, Yes, there are both possibilities - either the camera is faulty and drains too much power from battery or the charger is faulty and can't charge the battery enough. How long does it take to "charge" the battery - from the moment you put the battery into charger to the moment it will signalize battery full? Do you have any friend with the same or similar camera? Try using your battery in his camera or recharging your battery using his charger. If not, try your local store if they will allow you to charge the battery in new charger... BTW it is normal for these batteries to have significantly lower life in very cold temperatures. The advise is to have the camera (or just battery) near your body so that it is not in cold for all the time and put it out only for time you take photo.

No sound in recording videos

Do you mean in your camera or on your computer. If on your computer Google K-Lite. Hear you can download the codec drivers to update your computer to view and hear the movies you record.

It's easier to download pictures using card readers. Just insert the SD card in the reader and plug it in you computer. Double click the folder DMIC and you can drag and drop the pictures.
You can buy card readers in any computer store for $5-$10.

Poblem with my panasonic lumix dmc-fx7

It may that your battery has lost its charge, or has leaked? If it won't hold a charge try taking it out wiping it and trying again if that doesn't work you may need a new battery.

It could be dirt/smudge creating the fuzzy on the left frame. Try having it professionally cleaned, or I am sure there are products you can buy on the market to do it yourself.

eg. a eye glasses cloth.

Could be either. If on switch on again the indicator is full and you get more work done then its a camera fault. If when you switch on again the battery remains flat then this could be the camera fault too the flash capacitor showing signs of distress. On the other hansd the battery could be nearing the end it useful life. How much is a new battery?
