Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33A Digital Camera
I REALLY CANT GET WHAT IS THE REALLY PROBLEM OF THIS CAMERA...CAMERA ONLY SAYS MODE IS NOT IN PROPER POSITION ONLY,WHAT IS THE WRONG WITH THIS
It may be that for the type of picture you are taking the mode - dial at the top of the camera is not compatible.
Try a couple of different modes by adjusting the dial to auto, etc.

I have, after sifting through the 144-page manual, figured out what the problem is! At some point you must have set the "Auto-Bracket" setting to on - I did the same thing! To turn this off, put it in any of the Scene or Manual Exposure modes, then press the up (↑) key until "Auto-Bracket" comes up. Then, using the left or right (←,→) keys, set it to Zero (0). This should hopefully solve your problem! :)

This is a common problem with TZ3s. Power the camera on, then puff a little graphite onto the lens cover and coax it open with a tooth pic. Do this, powering the camera on/off till lens opens normally. Add little more graphite if necessary, but sparingly.
Graphite is used because it is extremely slippery, but will not attract dust like an oil will. At the same time, it is black! so you don't want to use anymore than absolutely necessary make lens work. Even then, check to be sure lens itself is clean after, and wipe carefully with an Eyeglass lens cloth only if necessary.
Another option in to remove the lens cover altogether by just pulling the leafs out of the camera. Another option is to sell your working but lens cover problem to a repairman on ebay, and buy a good TZ3 or TZ5 on ebay used, refurbished or new. Good prices if you bide your time.
Don't put in your best bid to the very last minute of the auction. In the mean time, put a camera you are interested in on your MyEbay Watch list and set a reminder alarm on your cell phone about 5 minutes before the auction is to close, then if the price is still good, enter your best bid 30 seconds before the end of the auction. Refresh the auction page on your PC to keep track of the bidding right up to the last 30 minutes so you can see the last remain bid and if it is worth outbidding on this camera. Again, if you are not in a hurry and bide your time, you can get a great buy. There are plenty of these cameras sold every day.

You camera may be in 'auto'flash' mode, meaning the camera decides if the flash is necessary, depending on the lighting situatioin. Try your flash setting on forced flash instead of automatic, or try it in the dark to see if the flash goes off.
