Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 Digital Camera

Cant see image

When I turn on my camera I can't see the images, sometimes I can barely see them but very very dark. Also a screw fell off. Is there something I can do or do I need to send it to a repair shop and if so where? also how could I find out if my camera is still covered by warranty?

Dark Viewfinder. The image results are dark too. It's been like this for two days. And I swear I did not do anything wrong. :(

If the image results are dark, the problem must be inside the camera. If you changed the lens something fell inside it and is blocking the light to the camera. You should check your nearest Nikon store and get it fixed because if you try doing it yourself you could damage the sensor permanently and destroy your camera completley.

Well i dont really know but when i star over the cam the screen is black and it doesn't appear nothing so just a leyend that says access when I take off the memory stick said turn on again the camera just...

Looks like a CCD image sensor failure a common fault in digicams these days. Point the camera somewhere and blindly take a shot. Open the image on your computer and see if it appears all dark. If it does then its an image sensor failure. On the contrary if the image appears properly then your LCD screen is the culprit.

Power switch fell off

Error the saving the image may require a firmware update to the camera. Go to for firmware and instructions on the update.

For the power button, I suggest you take apart the camera: Remove the 5 black and 1 silver screws and case is snapped together from the top. Doing so exposes the camera. Turn the black half of the case apart and inspect your button. The power button should snap back in. Just be careful that it may have (or had) a tab that held the power button in place. This tab may have broken off. Once the button is back in, assemble the camera and screw it shut.

If you could still barely make out an image, but it is very very dark, then it sounds like the backlight has gone out...but the lcd itself is still working fine.

Camera won't turn on

try removing the battery for 24 hours and allow the battery to charge for that long as well unless you charge the battery in the camera with a docking station then just leave it out also take a good look at the lcd when you try and turn it on see if the image is really dark but their is still a image. one this that I have noticed while working on casio is that a lens error can cause the lcd to be very dark and you can barley see a image but it is there so it causes you to thing the camera is dead. If you do see a image then the problem lies inside and needs to be serviced but if you don't then it lies in the power source. ie battery or power circuit of the camera. after the battery shows charged have it tested with a ohm meter it can help determine if it is a good battery. you can have it checked sometimes at radio shack or a place called batteries plus if you do not have one. I hope this helps out I know it can be frustrating but it happens. good luck.

Dark pictures

You did not say what sensitivity setting you had the camera set at- the higher the sensitivity the lighter the picture. Actually- all the image information is there so all that needs to be done is to edit the image lighter in a graphics editing program[You did say whether or not you import images to a computer] Come back back with more info on what you do with the images.
