Question about Panasonic DMC-FX07 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera that keeps shutting off

For no particular reason, my Panasonic DMC-FX07 camera stopped letting me zoom in, and if I try, the message display reads: "turn camera off then turn back on" but when I do this nothing is fixed. What could be wrong? The battery is fully charged, the memory card is empty, and nothing else appears out of the ordinary.

Hey layneD,
What is most likely going on is that something stuck in the lens obstructing its movement (i.e. a piece of sand), or the lens has moved out of alignment. You could try removing the batteries and waiting a minute and then reinserting them. Another option you could try is putting the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed upwards, and then hold the shutter button down and while doing this turn the camera on. One more thing you could try is blowing compressed air into the lens to try to dislodge anything that might be stuck in the lens. If none of these options work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician such as bringing it to a Geek Squad® precinct at a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

If it's not a hardware issue due to damage like the above posters suggested, try updating the firmware. I suggest referring to the user manual before you do so, however:

Camera will not retract nor function


It sounds like you will have to have the camera repaired. You don't necessarily need to drop it, as they can malfunction on their own. Before having the device serviced, try checking out the user manual for more explanation on this issue:

Unresponsive buttons because of engaged zoom


the reason why the lens zooms out is because the zoom switch is faulty and might need replacing.The way to tell this is when you switch it on in camera mode you will see the zoom bar displays on the lcd and stays there.
