Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 12.1 Megapixel Mirrorless Camera - 14 mm - 42 mm - Black 3" LCD - 3x Optical Zoom - Optical IS - 4000 x 3000 Image - 1920 x 1080 Video - HDMI - PictBridge - HD Movie Mode
When I turn on the camera everything is normal. When I go to press the shudder to take the photo it takes it but then the prompt comes on that says to turn on and off the camera. When I turn it on I can go back and see the photo I took. But I have to turn off and on the camera each time to take a photo.
You have a software or hardware issue. The software has a glitch or the shutter motor is causing an overload or perhaps the focus motor. Go to Panasonic website and download the latest firmware and update it to eliminate the software. Also try reformatting the SD card.

Make sure you have the Mac driver for your camera. Install the Mac driver that came with the CD. Try to use a different USB cable. You can also try to isolate the problem by plugging your camera to a Windows OS computer like windows xp and vista.

Hey how you doin.
I had the same problem during a trip around Australia, some bull dust built up around the lens area. The only thing I did to rectify the problem was to blow it out with a tyre inflator at a road house when I stopped for petrol. No problem since then.
You may have some fine sand wedged in the cover area aswel.
Good luck 'R'

The innards of modern DSLRs are precise and fragile. You need to contact a reputable repair shop ASAP. In addition to fixing your camera, they will clean the interior properly, eliminating dust particles that find their way to the CCD. The cleaning is something you should have done from time to time anyway, so just bite the bullet and take it in!

SOURCE: can't access photos
Insert the card...go into the menu and scroll to "copy". Follow the directions for copying the internal memory to the memory card.

Testimonial: "life saver! cheers mate! great help! x"
Did your friend use the "safely remove hardware" function when removing your card from her computer? That could corrupt your card if she didn't. Try this...take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk. They can usually read everything on a card. There, you can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Afterwards, format your card in your camera.
