Hi,

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.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do I take panoramic photos on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3, have done it before, but forgotten how to set it up.


Enter "setup" mode, and switch from "picture" or "video" to "panoramic". Take a picture, move the camera, and take another picture. Follow the on-screen instructions when you have finished taking the segments.

This camera is supposed to auto focus, but lately it hasn't been. When I zoom into something with an intricate pattern, the camera will not pick it up because it won't focus. What do I do?


try this:
1. clean the lens of any dirt or oil
2. remove the batteries, then re-insert them and try again
If that does not work, then you have a bad camera. If your camera is still under warranty, I will repair it for 35.00. If it is out of warranty, then I will fix it for 165.00

I have a panasonic dmc-fs3 and i need to know why i cant zoom in or out while im recording video


This camera just doesn't allow that option. Same with my DMC-FZ20-K. As to the reason behind it, you would have to ask Panasonic's designers. There is no fault with the camera anyway. It is just the way it is.

When switching on camera. pictures turn pink. why


ia mode or not?

is it out of warranty? I noticed that the manual was from 2005.
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMWAC5.PDF

The manual doesn't mention any pink area of focus.

I do not know why the area in focus is pink. That's the first time I heard someone complain about that on any digital camera.

Good luck on this repair.

Problem with uploading pictures- they go weird.


This sometimes happens with cheap cards. Also, set your camera to take the highest quality pictures.

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.
