The issue here is what we call the flash capacitor inside is bad what is going on is its not charging or you got a bad flash bulb ether or here your going to need a camera shop. I would not recommend you fishing around inside the camera as that capacitor contains a heavy jolt that you might not be able to sustain. I know I got knocked to the ground by one. I learned the hard way to disable that cap before touching. I wish there was a easy way out of all this mess but a camera shop would be your best bet here.

Thanks please do click the accept button for my efforts.

    I am going to post what a photo capacitor looks like, what happens over time is these blow out and thus cause this delayed or non-flash scenario, or you could have a bad flash bulb, to confirm my findings take it to a shop they will find what I found. This capacitor below is like $1.00 if your into replacing it yourself your going to want to disable the old one first.






    Good luck and god Bless, remember to press the accept button.

More than one possibility can cause this. Your battery can be on the end of life. Only when the battery works in another camera, of the same model, you can check the capacity. Or with a multimeter, but you must have some electronic skills. Then the contacts on both the battery and in the camera can be dirty or oxidised. Sometimes users manage to put in a battery the wrong way around. This should be virtually impossible with your camera. Try cleaning the contacts in the camera and on the battery, using some cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp.
Then again try charging the battery. Look if the charger light starts green. And is it stops after some time. If you already charged the battery, it could be the light goes out after a few minutes.
If the charger light starts flashing, you know something is wrong with the battery to the connectors. Don't forget to close the battery cover correct. There is a switch, and if the door is not locked correct this switch still indicates open battery door and the camera won't switch on. Check your manual page 17 and 18.

I have Lumix DMC-FZ28: How do I get photos off the internal memory to the SD Card?


There is no such button. Instead, use the "Copy" command in the Playback menu.

Panasonic DMC-Z28 - the flash button does not call up a flash setting menu and so the flash won't turn on.


Is your Z28 set up to do burst shooting as this will stop the flash working, click on the trash button and turn off the burst shooting. Hope this helps.
