Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Please Turn camera off and then on again

When I turn the camera on, it comes up and then says "Please turn camera off and then on again". Looks like it is trying to recover from an internal error. Maybe I can reset the camera's computer? It also is doing a focus back and forth thing like it's zooming back and forth.

    OK. This error occurs when force has been applied to the lense. Is there any way to fix it?

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Sony dcr-sr47 handycam - hdd format error.


Does this camera also take a memory card? If it does, then that would mean the internal memory would be very small...much too small for a long video. If it doesn't, then it's possible you should have formatted the internal memory before an important event.

Accidentally deleted photos from internal memory of my Kodak came


Hi!
Let's try to save your son's halloween pics.

There are a lot of recovery software that you can use to recover deleted files - specially pictures. You can try to use Zero Assumption Recovery. You can download the software at this site:

http://www.z-a-recovery.com/download.htm

It's a free software (you do not neet to pay to use this), and it's easy to use.

Here are the steps that you need to do:
1.) After you install this software, connect your camera to your PC (do not insert the memory card). Turn on the camera, open the Zero Assumption Recovery software.

2.) Click Next. Select "Recover images from the digital camera.." and click Next again.

3.) Select the Physical Device - select your camera , click Next. [grab a cup of coffee since retrieving the files may take some time depending on the size of the memory (",) ]

4.) After retrieving the files - select all the files that can be recovered. Click Next.

5.) Select the button on the right side (close to Destination) and select where you want to save the files. Click "Start revovering files".

That's it.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

You can recover deleted photos with camera recovery software like asoftech photo recovery, download from

Please be noted that your camera memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

Not working


Hi:
If the camera does not turn on, we do not know the problem.
Make sure that there is good connection internally where the batteries go in to the connections.
If you still cannot fix it, then the camera may need repair.
Try hitting the camera on a padded (folded towel) table or desk. By doing this, you could damage it more, but may be worth a try.
If the camera recovers, then you can test it.

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care.
Connect the camera to your PC & the PC should recognise it as an external drive.

If you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html.

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the camera until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Deleted photo recovery from cameras internal memory


Hi,

Please try this, turn on your camera, insert a blank memory stick, slide the side switch down to the lowest point, should say “No file in this folder” click on menu, click on Setup, use the arrows and go to Memory Stick, choose “Copy” choose “Album” the “OK” this will copy all you pictures from the Album in your camera to your memory stick.

Hope this helps
