Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lumix DMC-FX33. Keep on getting "Please turn camera off and then on again" over and over again. Occasionally I can focus and take a picture and the camera works for a day or two. Then the problem reappears in every mode accept picture play back. I tried cleaning the lens. Any ideas?

I have the same problem. It resulted when we used the camera is windy conditions with very fine sand blowing around. Some of those grains are lodged in the automatic lens cover and in the autofocus/zoom mechanism in the lens. I can actually hear the grinding as the camera tries to open.
Now, how do I fix it?

Mine does exactly the same - still holds all it's stored photos but seems to struggle to focus when turned on, then gives up & comes up with the 'turn camera off' message. Get the feeling it's something to do with whatever makes the camera focus.

The DMC-FX33 doesn't take pictures except sometimes on iA mode


In most cases, the camera is beyond economic repair. If the camera is a few years old, buying a newer one is a better option. I'm seeing brand name 10 MP models NEW for $60. you might check online auction sites for used ones. I've picked up 5 MP ones for $5.

Lumix FS-15 "System error (focus)"


I have the same issue with my 3 month old Lumix DMC FS15 plus it won't focus and gives the error message to "turn camera off and then on" This doesn't fix it.

Bottom line fix: Don't buy this camera again and don't recommend other buy it.

Bug with the DMC-FS5"please turn camera off and then on again"


Hi!
It sounds like the lens focus is stuck - could be sand, dirt or mechanical impact received. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair - it's not a software problem, but hardware.
I have repaired a lot of Lumix cameras with this problem.

Hope this helps!

The flash on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 is not working. I did not drop it or anything, but suddenly every picture that should have a flash doesn't. The little screen shows that the flash should go off but...


You camera may be in 'auto'flash' mode, meaning the camera decides if the flash is necessary, depending on the lighting situatioin. Try your flash setting on forced flash instead of automatic, or try it in the dark to see if the flash goes off.

CAMERA UNIT IS PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-FX33 MENU


It may be that for the type of picture you are taking the mode - dial at the top of the camera is not compatible.

Try a couple of different modes by adjusting the dial to auto, etc.
