Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 Mode Dial stuck

Hey everyone. My girlfriends camera's mode dial is broken. It will not go any further than simple shot and the click that is normally felt between modes is no longer there. I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix it without going to a repair shop as I can't find any around where I live that will take panasonic and it's too damn expensive to send it back to fix (warranty expired). If anyone has detailed instructions on how to take apart the camera and fix that mode dial it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Self timer stuck


hello

Have you tried turning the drive mode lever from self timer mode to single shot mode? If not, surrounding the mode dial are a couple of levers: one being the on and off lever and the other being the drive mode lever. if you move the drive mode lever up to the first option (illustrated by a single box, meaning single shot), you'll be able to turn the self timer off.

If that doesn't work, then it might be a system bug/error. In that case, download the latest firmware here and upgrade your camera.

Hope this helps!

When you turn it on the screen displays "mode dial in not in the proper position." Mode dial does not turn properly.


Something seems to be broken or off between the mode dial and the switch. It also may have broken internal parts.
I have had a camera with a similar problem. It was that the small switch inside was broken, and could not be repaired.
These mode switches can be changed, but will require a digital camera repairman to do such a job. It also could be sold for parts/repair on a site such as Ebay.

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.

Panasonic DMC-LC1EB camera no longer shows picture when start up


It sounds like you have the review mode, which won't allow you to take pictures - change the mode using the dial at the top of the camera. Change the dial to Auto, "A", and you should be able to take pictures.

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.

The scene mode is in one loop!!!!!


I had this exact problem. The FX01 thought I was holding down the 'up' button! I sent it back under warranty and they replaced the board. However that doesn't mean it was unfixable; it's just cheaper for them to replace boards than test them and fix them. IMO.
