Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8 Digital Camera
My camera was working fine, then all of a sudden after a picture was taken, I was unable to use any of the controls; they had all locked up. It turns on, I have removed battery/memory card, but nothing has fixed it. When in scene mode all the modes keep scrolling and stop temporarily when I push any button. And no, I do not know how to reset the camera.. I did also try homer's suggestion to move to the record setting, hold down, then turn on - didn't work. Anyone, can you please suggest something to fix this before I spend a ton of money on a repair? Another way to reset? Anything? Thanks!
Hey the same kind of problem happened to me last week and I was sorely pissed off. These cameras are not cheap to buy when they are new. Anyway I was looking up the number of the local service agent and turned my camera on to check something. Just by chance I found that if I touch the button on top for taking the picture and then simultaneously press the menu button I got access to my whole camera again! Now when I say touch I mean touch...lay your finger on the button do not press it even to the first stage, which is auto focus. It worked for me and if it works for you post your result to benefit anyone else who comes across this problem. Future.

I also thought my camera was dead.
I tried the way depicted in solution #1. It didn-t work.
I solved the problem by first selecting the scene mode and then I pushed different buttons (menu button and the 4 ones closed to it). It finally reacted.....)
It's now OK.
