I am Carmen from Lima Peru, I have one problem with my camera, my camera turn on ok, but only work the wheels button on the top rigth the other buttons don't work, and when i put in the scene mode all change without i do nothing like one loop...any button work i dont know how reset..please help me..
My camera is DMC-FX01 Lumix Panasonic
I had this exact problem. The FX01 thought I was holding down the 'up' button!
I sent it back under warranty and they replaced the board. However that doesn't mean it was unfixable; it's just cheaper for them to replace boards than test them and fix them. IMO.

The NIGHT SCENE and NIGHT+PORTRAIT scenes are meant to take time exposures of skylines and city streets by leaving the shutter open for several seconds. Therefore, it is necessary to stabilize the camera by bracing it against something solid or - ideally - by using a tripod or camera clamp.
so play around with the shutter speed and bring it to above 100
The procedure is as follows:
Set the camera's Mode Dial to the M (Manual) shooting mode.
Using the Control Dial(big wheel), set the shutter speed to 100.
Holding +/- button and turning the control dail will change focal length.
Play around a bit with this too utill you find right lighting for the image you need.
Remember slower shutter speed needs long time to process the image
When you put the Mode dail to the SCN mode, It will enter the last used Scene mode. THEN press the MENU button to select other scene mode. Don't turn any dail. Use the navigation controls left and right from the OK button, to move through the section. Press OK button to save and activate the selected scene mode. Success
Hallo! You better go to a service. If u have the abilities, disassemble VERY CAREFUL your phone and try to reconnect the camera. Usually, if it is dropped down, the camera is getting out of its connector on the motherboard. Cheers!
Sorry to hear about your camera. Hope you already fixed it. If not, could you please precise what lens are you using? What are the precise description of the last "black out"? Please try to be as precise as possible(Circumstances/Was it inside or outside/Light condition/moisture/Any peripheral devices connected etc.)
I just got identical situation today, and I have no clue at all. However, I figure that the camera is actually working busy like someone is holding the "UP" button continuously. To see this, power on your camera at any mode except the "Scene mode". After it's on, turn the mode select knob to "Scene mode". I saw my camera menu flashing like crazy.
When you press any button, the menu should stop running. But once you don't press the button, the menu start running again.
Please let me know if you have any update.
Set the Scene Mode for the appropriate Night landscape or Night protrait setting. If you are just taking in a view, then use Night landscape at nighttime (objects in the foreground could be out of focus in this mode). If you are photographing any number of people, animals, &/or objects at night, then use Night portrait (digital zoom would be unavailable in this mode).
In order to set the Scene Mode…
1. Enter scene mode: MODE in shooting mode --> SCENE (use the multi selector) --> OK.
2. Enter scene menu: MENU --> choose desired scene --> OK.
3. Frame the subject & shoot.
DON'T MOVE!! Nikon USA: "Slow shutter speeds are used to produce stunning night landscapes."
Nikon Coolpix s3 powers on OK when switch is on auto mode, but when switched to "Scene" mode cannot shoot, switch back to auto mode / movie mode, or turn off. If power is turn on when switch is in "Movie" mode, everything is OK. Help!

Lens fully closed so viewfinder is dark and secondly your auto focus will not work either in this condition ( not enough light reaching the sensor at the bottom of the mirror box ).
Problem is the aperture control mechanism called 'the base plate set' situated next to the mirror box in the body , which is faulty.
This can be repaired but requires removing of the mirror box so that you can access the small drive which has a faulty gear and which drives the aperture mechanism. I charge +- $150 to repair this common problem.
