Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera
First remove the SD card in case it is defective itself causing the camera to act funny. Next, your symptoms are indicative of a bad, not fully charged, or intermittent battery contact with camera's contacts.
Clean batt contacts using a clean pencil erasure.
If this doesn't work, measure a fully charged battery's voltage on the battery pos(+) and neg(-) terminals. It should be 4VDC. If less than 3.8, I would be suspicious it is not taking a full charge.
New batteries on ebay are cheap, and would not be a loss since you can always use backup batteries if you get another TZ camera. Or, you could just sell your camera to a repairman in an ebay auction, keeping your batteries and accessories, and buying a used working one with accessories cheap.
