My DMC-FZ20 turns on but has no image in viewfinder or screen.


I never experienced anything like that with my old FZ20 but with experiences in other cameras I've found a nice, easy way of fixing things tends to be a "hard reboot" I think it's called. Turn the camera on, then remove the battery while it's still on causing the camera to shut down due to power failure. Put the battery back in and IME, all should be well.

I have a DMC-FZ20 and the tiff pictures are wrong, jpg are fine


It's all to do with SD cards greater than 1GB and the limitations of the camera firmware. For some reason the camera dumps an extra 16KB of junk 16KB into the Tiff which throws everything out.
I have a utility (drop me a line and I'll send it to you) I threw together using some 3rd party tools to fix and affected TIFF files but leave all unaffected ones alone. Just run it in the folder where you store the broken files.

Camera DMC-FZ20 fails to turn on after having a flat battery. recharged battery and used a new battery but fails to show ant life. What can I do?


Assuming that the new battery you tried was the correct type for the camera and that it was fresh/fully charged, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Pictures have come out blurry and out of focus


The most common problems that most new users encounter are: 1. Trying to focus closer than @7 ft. when zooming at greater than 6x. The camera won't do it, and that zoom is tempting. 2. Not waiting for the lens to focus before completing the shutter press. Try holding the shutter at half-press until you see the steady green indicator, then gently press fully to take the shot while holding as steady as you can. 3. Expecting too much from OIS. If you're seeing the "jitter" icon a lot, that means that you're into the range of slower shutter speeds that OIS might not be able to compensate for.You might try switching to a higher ISO speed (or turning on more lights)-- yes there will be more noise, but it'll quicken the shutter speed, and a non-blurry pic that's noiser is better than a clean blurry one. . . and you'll learn a little about what you're camera will do under different conditions. Also, you have to really make the effort to hold the cam steady, even with OIS, especially when using slow shutter speeds.
