Question about Panasonic DMC-TZ5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Panasonic DMC-TZ5 will not turn on

Camera is less than 1 year old, and was working fine. Next time I wanted to use it, the camera did nothing. I thought the battery was dead, but I found that wasn't the problem when I charged up both and nothing happened. Any ideas on what the problem is? Would this be covered by warranty? Have you heard this happening before?

I had a similar experience, both with my original TZ5 and the replacement TZ5 Panasonic sent me. I was mystified at first, but now I think it's the AC adapter I was using. With the replacement camera, absolutely nothing happened between taking pictures of my new house and plugging in the camera to export the photos. The back of the camera near the AC input got really hot and my surge protector shut off. The camera won't turn on. I don't know about warranties, but if you think that's the problem and were using a Panasonic AC adapter, you should check. My (non-Panasonic) adapter worked ok the first time or two I used it.

Problem with Panasonic DMC-TZ5, can not take pictures with Flash.


My TZ5 has developed exactly the same problem. I took it to DK Audio Services at Horley,Surrey,RH8 9GA. who repair cameras for Panasonic and was told by the receptionist that although the camera works with the flash off at present it will eventually pack up altogether. She suggested that when I get the quote I phone Panasonic on 08705 3577 357 to try and get them to pay for the repair, it seems it is a known problem! My camera is just over a year old!!

What would be the very best settings on the DMC-TZ5 camera for an indoor rock concert?


Without flash the DMC TZ5 still does well. The photo has a good level of detail. It also has a natural look to it. Once again there is that bit more colour in the shot than I am used to seeing.

The way Panasonic manage the ISO settings is a little different to other brands. With the DMC TZ5 you set the maximum ISO rating you wish to use and then the camera is intelligent to work out the actual setting. This tends to produce better results than with other brands in most situations.

Hope helped.

8 month old tz5 doesn't want to focus any more. Camera says to switch off and then on again, but doesn't help. Anyone help..?


Hi!
It sounds like the focus is stuck. Could be sand, dirt or something like that. I repaired a TZ5 with this problem a couple of days ago. You should contact your local Panasonic service center or other local camera service center. This is a hardware problem, not software, so I'm afraid changing setting and stuff like that won't help.

I hope this helps!

Hi, I have lost the instructions for my panasonic lumix dmc t25 digital camera. How long should I charge the battery for. Thanks.


I know nothing about this camera, but they are all basically the same. Four or five hours should be quite sufficient if you have no external indication of charging. Cameras often have a flashing light somewhere which stops flashing, or changes colour, or simply goes out.

My panasonic tz5 has started playing up. The lens moves in & out, will not focus & a message 'please turn camera off and on again' appears. This happens each time I want to use it. The battery is charged....


Same problem. At least for now, I solved problem, or at least camera is working again, by putting mode dial in "normal" (not A1) and holding down menu and down button (macro button) while turning camera on. Hope it works for you and continues to work for me.
