Scroll down through the menu, there are five pages of menu items on my camera! it moves to a new page when you move off the bottom.
The language option is the penultimate item - it has an icon of a head with a speech bubble.

HAHA, I just solved the problem on my camera.

The problem is that the focus has gone "to far" and lost connection to the cogwheel, This is noticed by listening to the camera when it starts up. I gently tapped the camera lens-down against my thigh when the lens came out in it's outermost position.
This made the cogwheel reconnect to the motor and focus was obtained again. Now the camera works fine again.

I would recommend that you take a cleaning cloth between the lens and your leg when doing this to minimize the chance of scratching the lens.

Good Luck

SOURCE: How reliable is the Panasonic/lumix

Hi,
TZ5 is a fairly reliable and solid camera. It's been out for a while and there are still no known issues with it.
The ones I've been asked to repair have all been damaged due to owners' negligence (usually been dropped, had sand in lens mechanism or suffered water damage). I still haven't encountered a TZ5 which just suddenly "stopped working".
From a repairman's point of view I can say that TZ5, just as the TZ3 before it, is really really well built. It's easy to dismantle and put together. Everything is well thought of. The lens is a work of art.

Of course you need to be careful with this camera to avoid e.g. water or sand - these might kill your tz5. Sand clogs the lens easily (of course this is an issue with just about any compact camera)
I can definitely recommend it.
Hope this helps,
Raf

Problem with Panasonic DMC-TZ5, can not take pictures with Flash.


My TZ5 has developed exactly the same problem. I took it to DK Audio Services at Horley,Surrey,RH8 9GA. who repair cameras for Panasonic and was told by the receptionist that although the camera works with the flash off at present it will eventually pack up altogether. She suggested that when I get the quote I phone Panasonic on 08705 3577 357 to try and get them to pay for the repair, it seems it is a known problem! My camera is just over a year old!!

My Panasonic DMC-TZ5 will no longer focus, especially after using zoom. It displays messages re shutting camera off and on, takes 30 seconds to turn off and sounds like a ticking clock! It is only 3 months...


If you mention "ticking clock" sounds, then most probably something like a grain of sand fell into the cogs in the zoom mechanism (been taking pictures on a beach? ;). Dirt gets into the mechanism through the gaps between the zoom barrels and the camera body. One tiny grain of sand is enough to cause the lens mechanism to jam or malfunction.
Unfortunately, this is a problem with pretty much all compact zoom cameras. Usually there is not much you can do with this. First thing I try in cases like these is gently tapping the camera to shift whatever might be blocking the mechanism. If unsuccessul, then only way I know to fix this is completely stripping the lens to clean it or swapping the lens with one taken from another camera ("donors" available on ebay ;).
If you are not keen on tinkering with your camera I would suggest selling it on ebay - TZ5 with lens mechanism issues still fetch pretty good prices.

From repairman's point of view I can say that TZ5 / TZ3 (same lens design) are much better in in terms of "resisting dirt" than various other manufacturers. They are very well made and relatively easy to dismantle and fix. This is most probably the reason why even broken ones still sell quite well on ebay.

Of course, you might get unlucky with most robust piece of kit :(

Well, hope this helps.
Good luck with your TZ5.

Lens stuck open on Lumix DSC-TZ5


This is a common problem when something goes wrong with the lens system.
This can be as a result of numerous problems.
Try to pull the lens as turning on and also gently twisting it in and out...just may make the lens go back on track.

Panasonic DMC-TZ5 will not turn on


I had a similar experience, both with my original TZ5 and the replacement TZ5 Panasonic sent me. I was mystified at first, but now I think it's the AC adapter I was using. With the replacement camera, absolutely nothing happened between taking pictures of my new house and plugging in the camera to export the photos. The back of the camera near the AC input got really hot and my surge protector shut off. The camera won't turn on. I don't know about warranties, but if you think that's the problem and were using a Panasonic AC adapter, you should check. My (non-Panasonic) adapter worked ok the first time or two I used it.

My panasonic tz5 has started playing up. The lens moves in & out, will not focus & a message 'please turn camera off and on again' appears. This happens each time I want to use it. The battery is charged....


Same problem. At least for now, I solved problem, or at least camera is working again, by putting mode dial in "normal" (not A1) and holding down menu and down button (macro button) while turning camera on. Hope it works for you and continues to work for me.
