Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 Digital Camera
This is a common problem on this model. This is highly suggestive of ' lens problem '. Sometimes cameras such as yours can have a bit of debris jam up the lens or the lens can get knocked out of alignment. Often this can be resolved by a doing a few simple things. If it still does not work, then it would need to be repaired or replaced.
Turn off camera set on a table and with a bright light look around the lens turret to see if there is any foreign matter jamming the lens. Try cleaning the crevice between the lens and body with canned air using short bursts at an angle so as to blow any dust and debris out, not force it farther in. Turn on camera and test.
If that doesn't work:
Turn off camera, turn the camera over and gently shake. Sometimes gravity will do what canned air doesn't. Turn on camera and test.
If that doesn't work (try only if the camera is out of warranty):
Your lens may be slightly mis-aligned. Turn off camera. At your own risk look at the lens to see if it is centered. if it is off to one side, push it toward the greater gap until it clicks into place. Turn on and test.
If none of these measures work, it's time to have a technician physically examine your camera and quote a repair cost.However, on most occasions the cost of repair is quite high relative to the cost of the product.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
