How do I clean the lens of lumix dmc fh25


Are you "serious" to offer me to clean up every photo in photoshop?
How come Panasonic does not guarantee their own product?
I have had many cameras in my life and this is a first one with this type of problem. My friend bought the same type just one step better ZS8 at the same time and he is facing the same problem as well, within one year just past the warranty like me. Is it really a water spot? It is getting smaller, when I zoom in and it is moving to the side while I'm zooming in. Is it on the sensor or is it on the lens? Is there any Panasonic reply to this problem?

SPOTS ON THE INSIDE OF THE EXTEROR SCREEN HOW DO I CLEAN IT? CAN I TAKE OFF THE SCREEN COVER AND CLEAN THE INSIDE? WHAT DO I USE TO CLEAN IT WITH?


You will have to remove the screws around the top and sides of the screen in the back. The screws should be 7/64" allen key. I took the protection screen off of mine because I don't have kids or animals. I would clean the plexiglass layer after removing it from the TV. If you get any bit of the cleaning solution on the freznel lens it will leave a very noticable spots that you have to work hard to get off. Good Luck!

Spots on image


Hi,

The 28-135 zoom lens has at some point had moisture inside it. These spots that you can see are dried water marks.

You have to take the lens apart and clean the lens with a class cloth.

Alternatively you can take the lens to a specialist service center to be professionally cleaned.



Regards.

No setting can cause white spots on the picture, this is a fault.

By the way you can reset settings on this camera to initial state by simply removing and putting back camera batteries.
Alternatively you should have a reset command on camera settings menu.

My opinion is that this is a fault and not a settings problem.

Typically there are three kind of faults that can cause this problem:

1 - Dirty lens or water inside the lens:
The lens may be dirty inside, for example because of water condensation on internal surfaces, this will cause blurred dots or black dots. The lens must be taken apart and cleaned in this case.

2 - Defective CCD sensor.
The CCD sensor is the chip that detects the picture, if you get well defined white or colored spots on picture that is probably a defective CCD. I think this is the more likely in your case. To fix this the sensor must be replaced.

3 - Defective video chip on internal board.
This can cause any kind of problems, however it is quite unlikely.
It is an expensive repair.

Water spot inside the lens on my Lumix camera


DON'T EVEN TRY TO TAKE THE LENS OFF!!!

To take the lens off, the camera has to be dismantled, and unless you are an experienced technician, there is a 95% chance that the camera will have more problems than what it started with.

Have you taken any pictures with the water spot inside the lens? If it is visible in pictures, then you have several options:

1. Ignore it.

2. Leave it there and use an image editor to clone out the spot in the picture. (Recommended).

3. Take the camera to a repair shop, or mail it to Panasonic's service center. This is the expensive option, to remove the water spot, the price most likely will be well over $100.

4. Buy another camera. The FZ7 is rated to about 50,000 shots, so if you are approaching this number they it may well be worth it to just get another camera.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Unless the spot is seriously affecting your pictures, then leave it there. By having the camera opened there is a high chance that other problems will be introduced, such as: fingerprints,dust or hairs inside the lens or misaligned lens elements.

My FZ7's lens is full of dust, yet this is not usually visible in pictures, when it is, I can usually remove it on the computer.

I would recommend taking the camera to a service center as a last resort.

Dried water droplets on inside of lens


The camera lens will have to come completely apart, and all the pieces be cleaned. This is not something you can do yourself at home. Because there is water in the lens, there is the risk that the humidity will cause corrision of some of the pieces and electronics inside of the lens unit.

You an try leaving the camera in a dry warm place that is not more than about 100 deg F for a few days to see if the water will dry out. But, I am sure that there will be water stains inside on the lens surfaces.

No. You can't take the lense apart for the cleaning by yourself. Any expert pro camera repairer will do the job
