Question about Panasonic Cameras

1 Answer

My camera is about 6 years old. I have a pansonic lumix DMCfZ3. I usedit Friday without any problem. It was not dropped or uncared for. I am rather obsessive about it. On Saturday, the on-off switch would not engage. Can this be repaired?

After 6 years of use, the on/off switch failure would not be unusual.

If camera is not starting at all ensure that is not a battery problem.

If camera had been exposed to a wet environment ( happened on a rainy day). Try removing battery and leave the camera in a dry place for two days.

The problem can be repaired. To get it repaired ad to get a quote, contact Panasonic service number listed in the owner manual, or get a quote from a third party repair service here:Repair.

All the best.

Screen flickers and pictures have lines across them on my lumix DMC-TZ3

The camera is probably damaged, this also happend to my DMC-TZ5 as well after a few (5-6) years of heavy use but without any visible damage, a repair is most likely more expensive than just buying one of the new lumix cameras which have also improved A LOT, so you wont be disappointed!

Screen not operating. All else seems ok.

You might be able to find a replacement screen on eBay. I can provide a direct link if you give me your exact model number. If you don't trust yourself to open the camera, you can bring it to a local repair shop.

My pansonic lumix tz3 was dropped and now it won't switch on. The battery is fully charged. Does anyone know of common problems after dropping and what the solutions may be. Of course it may just be...

Dropping a camera can cause any number of different problems that would cause it to not turn on. Only a service center can determine what's wrong but it will be expensive. That's why they put wrist straps on the cameras. You're in a club with the rest of us...we've dropped one once....never again.

Which sd card is the best card for a pansonic dmc-zs7 camera, to shoot a lot of video?

You need a class 6 card for smooth video. A class 4 sometimes works but a class 6 always works. Stick with the name brands.

Your best course of action is to contact CONSUMER DIRECT which you can access online or via telephone number 08454 04 05 06 Monday to Friday 0800 to 1830 and Sat 0900 to 1300, it's UK government funded so it shouldn't cost you anything apart from the phone call and nothing online.

My pansonic lumix -fx01 digicam isnt responding ...seems sort of hung..

You can call  (044) 22352501 

check this website for frequent issues with DMC FX01's

My only direct suggestion is to take the battery out for a few minutes and then replace it. Failing that, try running the camera with charger without battery installed.
