Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera doesn't work

I am afraid I already know the answer to this one, but here goes. A family member accidentally cracked the LCD screen and now the camera will not do anything. The screen lights up, but no picture visible. Will not go into telephoto range. Can this be repaired? Or do I just have to scrap it and get a new camera? Thanks for advice.

Re: Camera doesn't work

I was about to say you could find someone with another part broken and put the two cameras together to make one good one, but your comment about it not zooming suggests that more is broken than the display. Looks like you are out of luck.

LCD Screen

Your camera is working exactly as SLRs have worked for the first half-century since their invention. You frame the picture through the viewfinder then take the shot. The display is for menu settings and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Newer DSLRs will let you use the display for picture-taking (and take videos) but the A200 belongs to the previous generation.

Screen is white and will do nothing else

Try removing the cam battery and reinstall after a 10 sec waiting time. This will reset the camera and put setting back to DEFAULT mfg settings.If that doesn't work it is a loose connection on the ribbon cable that connects the LCD screen to the board and Im afraid it will need to go to the camera shop.

The camera was dipped into water and it was not functioning right now.

It could already be dead, water and electricity don't mix, but you could try this.

Take out the battery (If anything like this ever happens again, camera, mobile phone, anything electrical, remove batteries immediately).

Put it in a dry warm place, airing cupboard, over a radiator (but not on) for a few days to dry out the circuits, then put the battery in and try again.

If it doesn't show any signs of life then, I'm afraid its had it. But if you've accidental damage cover on your home insurance, you should be able to claim against that for a new one.

LCD doesn't work when in photo mode. Can view pictures already taking, but the LCD does not work when trying to take pictures

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

I've got two good sized black spots on my LCD screen. They don't show up in the photos, but are a nusance.

It sounds like this is a common problem with this model. The lcd screen on my SD870 IS developed a large area of dead pixels a few months after I bought it new. A family member with the same camera had the exact same problem.

Cracked LCD

Elas, How do you want me to help you. A cracked screen is a cracked screen. And you say that it does not help you take pics. Well. you are already doing the next best thing, ie, using the eyepiece. If you feel that is cumbersom then have the screen replaced. You may not be able to justify the crack, towards warranty.

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):

HP407 screen cracked

You need a replacement screen.
You can find a broken M407 with a good LCD on Ebay for pretty cheap. (I picked up one for $20 shipped).
From there, it's a matter of taking out the 6 screws (very small Phillips screwdriver) that hold the camera housing on, the 2 screws that secure the LCD retaining ring on, pulling the LCD out of its mount, and gently pulling the LCD ribbon down and out of the white connector (mounted on the camera's board).
Reverse to reassemble.
Gentleness and patience is key, you're dealing with sensitive electronics here.
Even someone with little mechanical aptitude can do it, I'd say 30 mins tops to swap screens out of 2 cameras.
Before you buy an Ebay camera, try taking yours apart first to make sure you can do it, or find a family member or friend who's up to the task.
These cameras are not worth that much now. It's not worth paying a shop to do it. If you don't get a deal on an Ebay parts camera and do it yourself, you should invest in a new camera.

My camera's LCD screen goes black every so often. What is wrong?

No. All Lumix® Digital Cameras have a built-in feature to conserve battery power. After a certain amount of inactivity, the LCD will power down to preserve the battery. Simply hit the SHTR button, and the LCD will turn ON.
