    The camera does not seem to be able to focus. It will try three times and then send an error message to turn it off and back on. It will stay on to display the pictures that I already taken.

Generally the camera should come on after your turn it on and off again. The error you are getting is because of either System Error or Internal Memory Error.

I think you might need to take it to Sony. But Before that, I suggest that you take out its memory stick, the battery etc and keep the camera like that for about 15 minutes. Then only reinsert the battery (fully Charged) and try to power on. I if you are lucky, you might not need to go to Sony Best of luck and thanks for using FixYa!

Which driver do I use for the DMC-FS5 camera to work with Windows 8. Patchman


Do you really need a driver?

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

My lumix DMC-FS5 camera keeps saying "Pictures will be recorded to to built-in memory". No pictures have recorded to the memory card and I cannot retrieve pictures that have been taken and that...


In the camera menu, you will find an entry for "copy" which gives you the option to copy the internal memory to a memory card. Once that is done, remove your card, go back into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory and promise yourself to never use it again. After that, your memory card should work properly in the camera.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 cant upload photos!!


Did your friend use the "safely remove hardware" function when removing your card from her computer? That could corrupt your card if she didn't. Try this...take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk. They can usually read everything on a card. There, you can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Afterwards, format your card in your camera.

Bug with the DMC-FS5"please turn camera off and then on again"


Hi!
It sounds like the lens focus is stuck - could be sand, dirt or mechanical impact received. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair - it's not a software problem, but hardware.
I have repaired a lot of Lumix cameras with this problem.

Hope this helps!
