    We have the same problem. Our battery is good; used it in another camera and it works fine. Even tried a new battery, but the camera won't turn on at all. Great camera up until now.

First thing is to be sure battery and its connection to camera terminals is good. Be sure the battery charges normally when plugged into its charger. Charger light should be green when charging, then go out when done.

Next is to clean the battery contacts with a clean pencil erasure to remove any potential contamination built up. Now, try to measure the battery charge across its pos (+) and neg (-) terminals. This means either finding someone who can do this for you if you don't have a Volt Meter, or buying one at RadioShack or any Auto Parts store. The simple ones are cheap and this is all you need. A fully charged battery should measure about 4V DC.

If the charger and battery are good, then with the battery out of the camera, cycle the camera power switch on/off several times to try to clean its contacts. Now install the battery and move the power switch to on and hold for a good 5 seconds. Repeat this a few times.

If no response, then camera is defective. Sell it on ebay auction to a repairman who will buy it to fix and resale. Now buy youself a used, refurb w/warranty, or new on on ebay. Prices are very good because many are for sale(this is a very popular camera and millions were sold) and the TZ3 has been replaced with the newer TZ5.

It is easy to post your camera on ebay. Just search for a TZ3 for sale and on its Ad Page, you will find a link that says "Sell one like this". This will set you up with a TZ3 Ad Template w/default picture and Specs, and you just follow the prompts for your Headline/price/shipping/ etc.

Screen flickers and pictures have lines across them on my lumix DMC-TZ3


The camera is probably damaged, this also happend to my DMC-TZ5 as well after a few (5-6) years of heavy use but without any visible damage, a repair is most likely more expensive than just buying one of the new lumix cameras which have also improved A LOT, so you wont be disappointed!
