DMC-FZ30 Zoom Stuck!

Hello Chevy, I have stupidly dropped my camera on the lens & now the zoom will not rotate, my wife will kill me!!
Is there any chance you could tell me how to disassemble the camera or get a copy of the repair notes?
Best regards,
Greg.

Lens won't come out after dropping camera.


Only lightly toasted. The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. There is no safe DIY fix for either condition, but the camera can be repaired by the manufacturer or at a local camera shop. Make sure to get an estimate first -- you may need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

DMC-FZ30 Zoom Stuck!


Hi.

You may buy it online at panasonic, a less than 9$ expense wich seems correct :
https://www.completeservicemanuals.com/panasonic/technics/digital-camera/cat_29.html

Or you may try with such links as this, but he didn't tell if he gives them for free (probably not !) : http://www.tv-forums.com/forum/TV_Equipment_C4/TV_Repair_Forum_F3/Panasonic_Service_Manual_P47425/

Hope it would help, Didn't find a true free link but that may exist, you should have to browse some more with the help of search engine.

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.

If the lens is jammed in the out position you can try holding the camera firmly and tapping/hitting it against your hand with the camera on. The lens should then retract. If this doesn't work or if you are afraid of dropping it (do it on your bed, that way it doesn't hit the floor if you _do_ drop it), you can drop it on a wood/firm surface from an inch or so up and it should retract the lens. This solution ONLY WORKS IF THE LENS IS JAMMED.

Differences between Optical Zoom and Digital Zoom


When you change the focal length of a zoom lens, the subject is magnified. Optical zoom replicates the zoom of a 35mm camera. Digital zoom takes a portion of the image's data and displays it at full size, producing a magnification of the original image, similar to the effect of using a telephoto lens. However, the process is different from the magnification produced using the camera's optical zoom, and the stronger the digital zoom, the more the image will degrade.
