Pictures not downloading

I have aPanosonic Lumix FX50, i recently went to download some pictures and the screen say USB mode and then has an arrow that says PC ???? it use to be that the camera would just have Lumix show up on it and the pictures would down load in seconds. When i hit down load my computer says there are no pictures to download?? not sure what happened or how to fix this and i don't see anything in the manual regarding such a problem, I am sure it is somethign simple i just don't know what any help would be appreciated.

You camera show up in windows My Computer folder on the desktop. Click on it and you should see a drive letter labeled External Drive or USB Storage or such,

Click on this and you should see a folder named DCIM (Digital Camera IMage). This is your camera memory. Click on this and you will find a subfolder containing camera pics named according to camera mfg, for example on Panasonic it would be 100_PANA or 101_PANA etc. Click on this to find any pics taken. Drag and Drop this folder to your computer to download pics, usually \Documents\Pictures.

Cameras software is not needed to download pics the above generic way.

What do you actually see? There is normally a folder displayed and you might have to click on it & some sub folders to get to your pics. Look at the folder via Explore - Right mouse select the start button, the select Explore. You should see the camera's drive towards the bottom of the directory structure. Hope it helps. Rgds,

    Sorry Liz, this is quite strange.. Have you used or attached another usb device recently? Have you tried other ports on the PC? Have you tried a different PC? - Worst case, I imagine this is related to something (obviously) changed on your pc & maybe the only option is to roll back to an earlier 'restore point' to correct it. If the restore point is just a few days, then not much will change. Anyway, try the camera on another pc, if you have one available (to prove the camera & cable is ok) - then we can try a few other things. I know this is a pain, but it's sometimes quite difficult to resolve these mysteries. Rgds,

    Just another thought, do you have the original install CD? If not, you can download it from the web site. That may help restore the proper connection. Rgds, dave

I lost the software that came with the camera, how can i upload pictures to the computer


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Screen cracked, can I replace the screen?


If you send it in, you will be charged about $180-200 and what you will get back is a refurbished camera which may or may not be the same model. You can google "how to replace a screen on a Lumix DMC-FX50 and you may get lucky with instructions and places where you can order the screen. Probable total cost....about $50 and your time.

Lumix TZ3 lens does not open


It is not clear if you are saying whole camera turns off or just screen turns off.

Notice before the camera went bad the lense does not extend in play mode, while it does in record mode. Many cameras have software that automatically turns camera off if lens cannot/fails to extend for some reason. Try to help it extend in record mode before camera turns off.
