My 5 year old panasonic DMC-TZ27 seems to have jammed as it won't switch on!

Try the most basic step first. Please check if the battery is fully charged. If not it is not providing enough juice to the motor that turns the zoom lens. Please charge it fully first and give it a try.
If not, try re-setting the camera. you can find it in the menus.
if not the worst case scenario, the zoom motor is burnt, please take it to the service center for necessary repairs

Panasonic DMC-TZ3: one day it's working fine, next it won't power on. Tried the "Power Saver" reset technique posted ... didn't work. Battery is fully-charged.

Try removing the battery and the memory card for 1 minute then return them back. Make sure the battery is inserted properly. If that didn't work, try turning it on without the memory card.

Did you get any error message when you try to turn on your camera?

My panasonic camera DMC-F27 is showing "memory

Hi pblac11,

This could be a problem with the format of the memory card , or the memory card is not formatted as per the requirements of your camera.

I would give you a way out to try and see if it works , as I have been through this problem myself too.

Using a card reader device , connect your memory card to your computer and make sure it gets detected in your computer.

In case you are using windows xp , vista or windows 7 , you will find the removable drive relevant to your memory card being detected.

Now all you have to do is try and format the card in a mode that is different than the current one.

For e.g if your memory card has been formatted by NTFS file system , then try changing the format to the FAT32 file system.

and if it's FAT32 already , try formatting the card with the NTFS system and then try and insert the card in your camera after it has been formatted successfully.

The above solution has helped me , hope it helps you as well..:)

Your feed back would be appreciated.

    Lens won't come out after dropping camera.

    Only lightly toasted. The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. There is no safe DIY fix for either condition, but the camera can be repaired by the manufacturer or at a local camera shop. Make sure to get an estimate first -- you may need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

    Panasonic lumix dmc fz18 won't zoom in or out after being dropped from a table. the camera can still take photos but not zoom on playback or while taking photos

    The innards of modern DSLRs are precise and fragile. You need to contact a reputable repair shop ASAP. In addition to fixing your camera, they will clean the interior properly, eliminating dust particles that find their way to the CCD. The cleaning is something you should have done from time to time anyway, so just bite the bullet and take it in!

    I have a lumix DMC-F27 camera it will no longer zoom. No I not in movie mode.


    Do you mean DMC-FZ7?

    I own one. Assuming that the camera is working normally, then I know two settings that will cause the zoom to be fixed.
    Suggestion No. 1:

    If the zoom is fixed at the wide end:

    1. Turn the mode dial to "P". Now turn on the camera.
    2. Press "MENU SET".
    3. Press the up arrow button.
    4. Now, a menu item named "CONVERSION" should be highlighted. Press the right arrow button.
    5. A sub-menu screen should now pop up, select and set "OFF".


    Suggestion No. 2:

    If the zoom is fixed at the telephoto end:

    1. Follow Suggestion No.1.

    Suggestion No. 3:

    If none of the above solve the problem, then the lens might have been knocked slightly out of position.

    ~If the camera has been dropped.
    ~If the camera has been thumped or banged.
    ~If while zooming, the lens was obstructed.
    The zoom motor also could have died, it costs about $50.00 U.S. at
    My best advice would be to contact panasonic customer service.
