Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 Digital Camera
I bought my Panasonic Lumix FZ28 in November 2008. it has been fine until recently (2 weeks ago)... the fault is intemittent, and I cannot "force" the fault to appear....
Fault 1 on power up, the lens zooms out to max zoom (including digital), and the zoom lever does not function.(no other buttons on camera function)
Fault 2, similar to fault 1, power up, camera works normally,for a while, then zooms automatically to full zoom, sometimes zooms back to zero zoom, change from rec to display, and back to rec, sometimes rectifies it,
Fault 3, Power on, using camera, press Menu, to change settings, but menu on screen just scrolls (happened only once) but nothing will stop it going through all pages of all menu repeatedly.
friend has given me instructions from Service Manual for FZ18 to get error codes.... most common error code is 18000530 with a 18000930, and a 18000130, but these do not tie up with the error code list.
Possibly a intermittent connection in the control buttons or the ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector from the controls to the main PCB.
Take it in for servicing, they will do a trial by substitution (swap out control) and lubricate the connector.
There isn't really anything you can do to fix with this sort of problem.

I have this problem too, but only when I try to view pictures I have taken on a later model. Photos taken with the FZ28 view as per normal.
