Leica has offered an extended service option for the Digilux 2 to deal with this problem. The text of Leica UK's announcement follows. A similar notice appeared on the Leica USA website for awhile but has since been removed. Contact Leica before you take any other action. They may have a fix that would be no cost to you: 13/12/2006 Leica Camera AG is offering all owners of the LEICA DIGILUX 2 a customer service free of charge even beyond the stated warranty period. Specifically, this refers to exchanging the digital camera's sensor in the case of a rarely occurring malfunction. Leica Camera AG has opted for this extended warranty due to the fact that there have been a few reports of this malfunction caused by faulty manufacturing which also affects some other makes' cameras. Prolonged use of the camera in tropical climate conditions has occasionally led to effects such as black stripes in the image or even a totally black image. This malfunction can be the result of sensors whose specifications do not meet the respective Leica Camera AG production and testing standards. Even though the malfunction occurs only after prolonged use in extreme conditions, i.e. perhaps even after the warranty period has expired, thanks to the service described here, the LEICA DIGILUX 2 customers can rely on having their camera repaired free of charge over a longer period of time. Thus, supported by this measure, Leica Camera AG is ensuring that the LEICA DIGILUX 2 will retain its value after having been discontinued.

Frost buildup


POSSIBLY faulty door seals allowing outside moisture to enter freezer compartment. This is especially prevalent in older units and/or tropical climate zones [ie high humidity] ... OR if freezer is OVER-LOADED with food items !!!
If you are putting in large quantities of fresh produce to be frozen it is quite often better to PRE-COOL all the items in your refrigerator PRIOR to placing in your FREEZER as they will usually have a high moisture content which will cause frost build-up in your freezer ...

I have a Leica Digilux, but could not fine it anywhere on tghe dealer spots. I need a memory card for it and its difficult to get locally. The size is larger than the regular cameras.


Amazon could be a help:

It may depend on what your exact camera model is. You have only stated Leica Digilux.
There is the Leica Digilux 1, Leica Digilux 2, Leica Digilux 3, Leica Digilux 4, and the Leica Digilux 5. Most seem to take the SD HC (the SD card may work as well) card:

If your camera is a Leica Digilux 1, then the cards it can take are: Secure Digital Card and Multi Media Card
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leica_Digilux_1

If you have an earlier camera, then it could take some other kind such as the Compact Flash Card, although I did not find such a note anywhere.

I received a Leica Digilux 2 from a relative and i cant seem to see anything thru the viewfinder or the lcd screen. Its just black. Is the shutter not open? I can see all the numbers and settings around...


Open the back of the camera. **** the camera as if you were advancing the film. While looking in the back, push the shutter release, like you were taking a photo.
You see the mirror flip up and glimpse a flash of light as the camera cycles.
If you do not see the mirror flip up and return, the camera needs serious repair..
As for the LED Display, put some new batteries in it.

When I turn on my Leica digilux-2, the monitor shows a photo from the SD card, but does not pick up anything else. The viewfinder is black.


Odd this has been here five months w/o a response. Apparently you describe a "burned out CCD", the famous "sensor problem", which is frequently mentioned whenever the Digilux 2 is being discussed. It's too bad because I think otherwise it is a wonderful camera. Contact Leica in whatever country you live and see what the current policy is re: repair, and whether the company will stand behind their product. There appears to have been positive response. Good luck.
