Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera
Lumix FX9 - all of a sudden the LCD screen is very dim. Almost nothing can be seen indoor now. When outdoor under the sun, image can be seen barely. What's wrong?

I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.
I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

Hello, the other two replies are good answers, but it could also be the shutter magnet causing interferance with the picture creating lots of tiny lines accross the picture and causing the picture to be grossly overexposed.
In Australia these cameras do not have a ccd recall issue and in our workshop we have not had to replace any CCD's on these particular cameras.
Lots of lenses though (as the shutter is not avalible seperate) with similar problems to as you have described.
Sorry for the bad news.

Firstly, Yes, if you want to reset all settings to factory default you can do so on most every digital Camera and imaging device that is manufactured today.
there are no specific model details in your question, but generically, you should find in the 'Settings' or Set Up' menu, that 'resore factory default' or restore default settings' will be one of the final options on the list, generally found in the same menu where you will have first set the time and date etc when you 1st purchased this camera.
Now as for the low light - indoor - blur on images, This is almost certainly due to low light levels and the CCD sensor failing to keep up with the light levels between say the window and the room during the daytime or the electric light source and the person/object of your photo at night.
Do you use the Flash? are the results clearer (if harsher)?
Understanding that perhaps you don't want to use the flash, you should make sure your camera is as steady as possible, if you don't have a Tripod, then lay it on a table, or even nestle in a cushion is fine. Then press the shutter button as gently as possible, first halfway down until you hear the camera finish it's auto focusing process, then gently take the shot.
A couple of other tricks you may have success with (again depending on model) are either lowering the resolution of the images, Say for instance you have a 6 mega pixel camera, this is an image quality that way exceeds that which you need for taking family album snaps. you will have perfectly enjoyable and printable images at a resolution setting of 2-3 meg pixels, this will allow the camera's processor to manage far more swiftly, due to it being designed to - hopefully - cope with a far higher MP level.
Finally, i have resolved this shake and blur problem by setting automatic digital cameras to the 'speed' setting, - Usually a small image of a running man or couple - or if you have a 'scenes' based menu, choose the one used for fast moving objects, i.e, motor sport etc. I know this appears to go against all logic, but it seems the faster shutter speed eliminates some blur, whilst the shutter speed on Automatics is not fast enough to noticeably darken the image. presuming of course you have what you would consider 'sufficient' lighting.
OK, well that's about as clear as I can be without knowing the model of your camera, But good luck with it... it's generally just getting to know the highlights and pitfalls of small automatics that is the key to success and enjoyment with them, just use it at what it's best at and accept compromise with the less good aspects.

Tips for a great answer:
The display being black can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the display is not seen, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.
However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the phone aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
