Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12 Digital Camera
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12. The screen is upside down and black and white. It takes the picture upside down as well, so it's hard to see what i'm taking. I didn't drop it. How do I fix it?
The issue is due to the data cable getting damaged due to the way of packing it inside the camera casing. The signal carrying traces on the edge of the felxible cable is getting damaged. Once the camera is opened and the cable is repositioned properly/replaced will solve this issue.

This is one of the weirdest lumix problems I've seen ;)
I understand that menu functions display as normal? (i.e. not upside down?)
Do the pictures come out ok or are they black and white too?
In any case, it's not going to be particularly easy to fix. You won't be able to rotate the screen inside the camera as the cables are too short. You might be lucky and as suggested in solution #1 could indeed try to unplug/replug the LCD video signal ribbon cable (there are two - it's the wider one).
Otherwise I would suggest getting a donor camera from e.g. ebay (preferably one with e.g. broken screen or lens fault) and replacing the logic board(s).
