Re: Camera is in shock

Try wiping the battery terminals on the camera and the battery.
Use an electrical contact cleaner that you buy at an auto parts store. Soak a q-tip and go at it. You may be surprised. I was.Just a caution. Make sure the contact cleaner will not melt the plastic on your camera or the battery. Test it by wiping a q-tip dampened with the cleaner on a portion of the battery cavity. If the qtip comes back gray, use the cleaner sparingly and touch only the battery contact areas.

My Panasonic DMC-TZ3 has a black screen can't get it to view. Does anyone have any ideas why?

If you able to click the pic but all thing shows only black black nothing to see,,,all functions are working just not seen anything, then you have a problem in your lance , there is lance flex in your lance may be damaged so you must be replace it and you got your camera as before, if you are technician then first buy lance flex of your camera and replace it, if not then send it to any authorised repairer, its not a big problem its routing problem of cameras,

White screen

Sounds like the LCD's ribbon cable is not securely attached to its connector. If the camera's no longer under warranty, you'll need to open the camera, remove and then reseat the LCD ribbon cable into its connector. If you decide to attempt repair, remember its ultimately your responsibility, as things can and sometimes do go wrong. Also go no further than the first three pictures in the following disassembly guide.

Follow the LCD ribbon cable to its connector on the circuit board. Look for lift pins or a lift bar on the connector that you lift with your fingernail, or the flat edge of a screwdriver, to release the cable. After you release the cable, inspect the end of the cable to make sure its clean, then reinsert it in the connector, and close the lift pin/bar to secure it. Reassemble the camera, and try it out.

And finally, there is a risk of electrical shock inside all digital cameras with a flash. Recommend reading the following before opening any camera:
