Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Panasonic lumix 5.0

My camera is in a "stuck" position. I can review shots that I've already taken but when I want to switch to a shooting posiiton (A or P) the following appears on the screen"please remove lens cap and press >button". When I follow the instruction, the same instruction reappears.
Prior to this occurring, I was in Mexico taking pictures-the area was dusty and then all of a sudden it wouldn't permit me to shoot a shot. I removed the chip, battery, etc and 'cleaned them off" but nothing happened. What's the problem

The TZ3 has a design problem with their new automatic lens cover, ie, manual lense cap on TZ1 was illiminated on TZ3.

Make sure your lense cover is completely retracted in front of the lense. If not, nudge it fully opened and see if this solves you problem. If it does, contact Panasonic with your problem. If not under warranty, tell them you want them to fix 'their' problem on your camers. Google it on the net and see how common this problem is.

How to unlock memory card lumix fs3


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

May lumix camera screen showing memory card is locked how can i unlock it


Take a look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Memory card lockes on my panasonic lumix


If you take the card out of the camera, there's usually a tiny little switch on the card itself.  You can lock the card so you don't accidentally write over important photos.  Because it's so tiny, it's easy to switch it accidentally...and some are loose so they switch over on their own.

Panasonic lumix dmc-fx01 won't focus


See the post for the same camera: "Buttons stopped working": there is a small 2 position switch connected to the zoom button. In my camera the zoom switch was stuck in one of the extreme positions. You have to put it back in the middle an re-assemble.

Lumix DMC FX8 lens cap opens intermitently,some images shoot rotated 180 degrees


hi, i've an fx8. i had a problem 2 weeks ago. my objective didn't want to close when i switched the camera off. it remained open. when i switched the camera on again, the objetcive has closed and opened again, and the _Turn Off the Camera and Turn On again_ message appeared on the sisplay. and remained in open position after switching it off. i tried some button combination, like menu button on, and power the camera on. it didn't work, but the second was the shotting button on, power on combination. an it worked, my camera did some kind of reset. it returned to the original position, and everithing is working since then.

Problem - Turn off and turn on again - happens repeatedly


We see this camera often because the lens gets compressed some how and the plastic gears which drive it become damaged, this would be the "buzzing" noise you're hearing during power up. The camera is not passing its power up diagnostics and therefore it shuts down. The lens is not cost effective to replace on this camera, parts and labor exceed a replacement units cost. Hope this is some help. Good Luck Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (customelectronics.org)
