Question about Digital Cameras

I have a Lumix DMC-FZ30PP camera. It reads the card fine on review but asks to turn off the camera and turn it back on whenever I put it on a phot shoot selection.

    how do I tell if the shutter opens

  • thamel Mar 18, 2008

    there is a brief display before the camera goes to turn off & turn back on mode so I assume the shutter must open as normal.

    Hi sorry have been away from computer for a while.
    Ok you know when the camera was working as normal when you switch it on the lense should come out of the camera and then it goes back in when you switch it off does this happen or not.
    If this is not working then it usually means either something like a bit of grit is stuck down side of lense or it could even be that the lense motor has gone.
    Are you 100% sure that the battery is fully charged and that the charger is working or are you using battery off the shelf.
    If your using goos battery or the one you have is fully charged then you can rule that out as being the problem.
    So once you have checked this remove the battery and memory cord then hold the camera in one hand then hit it into the palm of the other hand hard but not to hard this usually frees any grit or dirt that is stuck dont worry you wont damage it as the palm of your hand absorbs the shock its just to dislodge anything that could be stuck.
    try this a few times then get back to me ok im online all day today ok let me know how you get on with this

HI! I have a one year old Lumix DMC-FS15 that I barely used for some personal photos, I bought a 4 GB SDHC memory card with it, it used to work just fine but now whenever I turn o the camera I message...


If the memory card works on your pc, chances are it is fine.

So you have two things to do : first backup on your computer any picture on your card.

Secondly put it back in the camera, go into the menu and find where to Format the card.
Once the card is formated by the camera try to take a picture to see if the problem is solved. If not, look through your camera menu, certainly under "memory setting" or something similar, then you will have an option to choose on wich memeory the pictures are recorded: the internal one or the card.
Make sure your 4gb card is selected. This shoul solve the issue.

Hope this helps.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4 black - memory card locked


Remove the SD card and slide the lock switch on it to the unlocked position. If it's already there then slide it fully to locked and then fully back again.

If this fails then you need to try another SD card to see whether it's a camera fault. If the camera is at fault then there's nothing more you can do other than to return the camera to Panasonic for repair.

V530 camera continue to ask formatting needed.


Navigate to the 'Format' section of the menu then try each option ('Yes' 'No') separately---checking the advisories between each trial.
