Dropped in the sea.


If it was dropped in the sea a couple of month ago it is dead. You need to remove the battery and repair it within 24 hours, and even then repair is iffy

Lumix DMC-FX9 Digital Camera: camera is fallen in water. screen is black.but all...


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} First remove the battery, and proceed to dry camera completely to take out all moisture trapped in the camera: Dry the camera, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, camera and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped camera in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your camera because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the camera. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs. Hope this helps!

Image totally blurred,


Could be a firmware issue, I suggest you go to the Panasonic website, follow links for support and/or downloads and see if there's a firmware upgrade for your camera.

Failing that, get onto the panasonic tech staff, they may be able to guide you further.
