Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera
I dropped my Lumix camera recently and now when I turn it on, the view is blurry. After a few seconds it says "Turn camera off then on again". I can view my stored pictures just fine. What should I do?
It sound like you have damaged the focus part of the lense i am not to sure if you can replace this part as i have never come across this problem with a camera before but the problem could be either the lense focus has become damaged or it could be that a chip on the board has been damaged without taking the camera apart and looking to see if the lense and lense motors can be replaced or do come out their might even be a way of adjusting the lense once the camera is apart to get it back in focus their is nothing you can do yourself as the equipment will cost a fortune to buy. you would need to test the board and all chips and also im sure if your camera can be adjusted you will also need a special tool to do this. i do know on some of the top end cameras you can adjust the focus from inside the camera to bring it back into view but at the end of the day you need to think is it cheaper to repair or to replace also if you take it in to get repaired you might also get problem sources the spares. but at least you know the screen and memory is working fine so it could just be that it need adjusting it is not worth taking the camera apart yourself as their is an order to undo the screws so as not to warp the board also when you put it back together these need to be done in order and torqued up to the right tension else the board will get warped i suggest you take it into a good camera shop and these will tell you of a repairer in your area im sorry but their is nothing you can do yourself witch isnt much help i know but im sure you just need to get the lense auto focus adjusting this will be cheaper than replacing the whole unit at least they can take the cases off and look at it witch i cant do from here so i am advising you the best i can from where i am sorry cant help you more but im sure other experts will tell you the same answer good luck but choose a good camera shop as you are less likely to gut stung on the price of the parts.............................
