According to the charging manual ( Panasonic LUMIX DMC TZ15 Operating Instructions Manual Charging Battery ) it could be caused by dirt. I've tried to clean my charger, now it works fine. No more blinking green light, just a constant green light.

Are you using the batteries recommended by the manufacturer? that is a very important fact, even though you can find other batteries that have the same specs, they make the cameras to where it will work best, and sometimes only, with the batteries recommended.

Welcome to FixYa.

First thing you need to check is if you inserted the battery in the correct direction.

Second possible reason, is if LCD is turned off even when the camera is turned on. In this case, possible that you set the camera into the power save mode or economy mode activated. What you just need to do isto press the shutter button halfway to cancel this modes.

I hope this will help you on your issues on your camera.
Feel free to send us your comments and suggestions if this solution is helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 will not power on, although the battery has been charged.


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.

Energizer model chdc7 charger green lights flashing very fast


Single Blinking Light means it is charging, eventually the top green light will start blinking to show that it is half way charged. If both lights blink at the same time repeatedly this means there is something wrong and the charger is not charging the batteries.

My camera lens isn't working, how can I reset it?


it sounds like there is dirt, dust or something else in the lens mechanism. I'm assuming you don't want to take the camera to a repair shop. I've had several cameras and this issue comes up periodically.

You can try:

1. using compressed air (with as thin a nozzle as you can find) to blow out the dust,
2. try powering on the camera and zooming the lens at the same time, 3. gently knocking the camera on a hard surface to loosen the lens mechanism,
4. manually forcing the lens to go back in. This can potentially damage the camera, but it's not working now, so you don't have a lot to lose.
5. Googling the camera model to see if you can find instructions on opening the camera up to clean the lens mechanism.

Camera wont turn on


First thing is to be sure battery and its connection to camera terminals is good. Be sure the battery charges normally when plugged into its charger. Charger light should be green when charging, then go out when done.

Next is to clean the battery contacts with a clean pencil erasure to remove any potential contamination built up. Now, try to measure the battery charge across its pos (+) and neg (-) terminals. This means either finding someone who can do this for you if you don't have a Volt Meter, or buying one at RadioShack or any Auto Parts store. The simple ones are cheap and this is all you need. A fully charged battery should measure about 4V DC.

If the charger and battery are good, then with the battery out of the camera, cycle the camera power switch on/off several times to try to clean its contacts. Now install the battery and move the power switch to on and hold for a good 5 seconds. Repeat this a few times.

If no response, then camera is defective. Sell it on ebay auction to a repairman who will buy it to fix and resale. Now buy youself a used, refurb w/warranty, or new on on ebay. Prices are very good because many are for sale(this is a very popular camera and millions were sold) and the TZ3 has been replaced with the newer TZ5.

It is easy to post your camera on ebay. Just search for a TZ3 for sale and on its Ad Page, you will find a link that says "Sell one like this". This will set you up with a TZ3 Ad Template w/default picture and Specs, and you just follow the prompts for your Headline/price/shipping/ etc.

GP 360 Radio Charger


On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)

There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.

Battery Wont charge


I have the DMC-TZ1. The charger is labelled "Panasonic DE-A25 battery charger". It has 3 contacts where the battery fits in. With no battery in place, the voltage between the top and middle pins is 2.61 V. The voltage between the middle and bottom pins is 2.19 V. Check those voltages. If they are very different from mine, I rather think the charger is not working. You can buy the batteries for very low prices on ebay from Hong Kong and other asian sources, but I've been told by someone who tried them that they do not work. Perhaps you have run into one of those. If you can find someone else with the same battery, a quick swap will tell you if your camera is okay. I got my camera on ebay and it works perfectly.
