This is normal. If you hold the zoom for an extended time the lens is slower than the indicated zoom. Forcing the lens to continue to its zoomed direction.

When puushing the buttons on x125 will not react try to set program can not page up or down can not get into programs it will not power down


Your system is a bit older and may be reaching the end of its life. PrI or to giving up hope try a hard restart.with the unit turned off press and hold both the zoom in and zoom out buttons.press and release the power button to turn the unit on while you continue to hold both zoom buttons release the zoom buttons when you see a prompt appear on the screen. If this has no effect repeat the process only holding in the zoom out and pages buttons. Lowrance flip flops back and forth on their button configuration for doing hard restarts and I can never keep them straight from unit to unit. Hope this helps.

Shutter release inoperative


The "button" is actually just a plastic extension for the actual switch on the printed circuit board. You will have to dismantle the camera to gain access to the board and then use a DMM to test the switch contacts.

Lumix DMC-ZS19 system error focus


Here's a fix I got from Panasonic, I figured I would post this since I haven't seen this anywhere on the web and this post was the highest hit on google

Based on the information that you have provided, we suggest that you perform the following operation:
1. Turn off the camera 2. While off, turn the zoom button fully to the left or right (hold for about 3-5 secs) 3. Release then turn the camera back on... At this point in time the lens should retract. If it does not, repeat the previous steps however, press the zoom to the opposite direction than you did the first time around. If this does not resolve the issue, we recommend the product be sent to our Customer Service Center.

This seems to work for me. The lens retracted back in place and my camera resumed working.

Will a nikon n2000 turn on without a lens and film?


The camera should operate perfectly fine without a lens. It should also operate perfectly fine without film (other than for not taking any pictures, of course).
I know this is stupid, but make sure the batteries are inserted in the proper direction. Then make sure the film advance mode selector around the shutter release button is not in the "L" position. L is for Lock, S is for single-frame, and C is for continuous.
If you need a manual you may download a copy here.

It appears that the image on the screen is zoomed in, but I can't figure out how to "undo" that. Thank you!


If the image on screen is zoomed both in vertical and horizontal direction, your TVs power regulator inside it is faulty. [Overvoltage]. If it is zoomed in vertical direction only, that is only the height of the picture is zoomed, you can adjust it with the remote control button directly on going through menu and get in to the function menu. Normally all TV remote has a special button marked as "Zoom" which on pressing it once the picture get zoomed, again another press the picture gets wide and again an another press picture will come to normal mode. You should select normal mode to retify the problem.

With fully charged battery 5D has power but will not take shots


This sounds like your release switch is faulty. I have repaired several of these 5D cameras with similar strange symptoms. Basically what happens is the first switch on you release assembly cracks and breaks thus making continuous contact. When this happens it basically locks up your camera. The solution is to replace the release switch assembly. The repair should not cost you more than $150.
Hope this helps.
