Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12 upsidedown screen

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).
Good luck,
Raf

Can I take black and white pictures with my Panasonic DMC-FX12


Probably not; it is an uncommon wish today.
But, any editing software I have ever seen allows you to change color saturation or intensity and these can be reduced to 0, yielding your B&W.
If you don't have any editing software (last person on the planet? ;-) ), I recommend Irfanview, a freeware package (donations appreciated) that is easy to use and well-supported and gets better with each version:

Hi,

I also faced this problem with the Lumix camera. 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 will solve this issue.

Panasonic Lumix DMC FX12


HI,
It's impossible to turn the camera off. Only way is take out the battery.
No button warks, but I can change the shooting mode and turn playback, but I can't change the image in playback mode.
Please, help me to solve this problem.
I think, the camera needs to be restarted, but how to do that?
Thanks a lot.
