Question about Panasonic DMC-FX07 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unresponsive buttons because of engaged zoom

When i turn my DMC-FX07 on it immediatly begins zooming in to maximum zoom, 3.6 times. It is unresponsive to everything but the mode select wheel and the on/off switch. I can put it in review mode but cant look at any other pictures except the very last one i took using the camara. In any mode except review the zoom bar displaying the fact that it is zoomed in to 3.6 times normal does not disappear like it usually does when i am done adjusting the zoom level. I have removed the battery, turned it on and off a couple times but nothing has changed its condition so far.
Thanks for any advice

    same problem as above.

    how do i get the zoom button replaced?


  • Anonymous Nov 28, 2008

    Looks like many have reported the same issue. I don;t agree witht eh solution posted. I don;t see anything about the zoom on my LCD. No workaround seems to work. This camera is a faulty one by panasonic. Never buying a panasonic again.

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.

Faulty zoom operation


This is normal. If you hold the zoom for an extended time the lens is slower than the indicated zoom. Forcing the lens to continue to its zoomed direction.

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:

I have a lumix DMC-F27 camera it will no longer zoom. No I not in movie mode.


Hi,

Do you mean DMC-FZ7?

I own one. Assuming that the camera is working normally, then I know two settings that will cause the zoom to be fixed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Suggestion No. 1:

If the zoom is fixed at the wide end:

1. Turn the mode dial to "P". Now turn on the camera.
2. Press "MENU SET".
3. Press the up arrow button.
4. Now, a menu item named "CONVERSION" should be highlighted. Press the right arrow button.
5. A sub-menu screen should now pop up, select and set "OFF".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion No. 2:

If the zoom is fixed at the telephoto end:

1. Follow Suggestion No.1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion No. 3:

If none of the above solve the problem, then the lens might have been knocked slightly out of position.

~If the camera has been dropped.
~If the camera has been thumped or banged.
~If while zooming, the lens was obstructed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The zoom motor also could have died, it costs about $50.00 U.S. at Panasonic.com.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My best advice would be to contact panasonic customer service.

Camera that keeps shutting off


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
Go Ahead. Use Us.

  • images become coarser the more they are digitally zoomed.

IF this fails, your camera is in need of service.

Camera Frozen


Hi,

I tried Option No.1 successfully when my Panasonic DMC-FZ7K froze once:

Option No1:


1. Try turning the camera on with the battery inserted.

2. Now remove the battery while the camera is on.

3. Flip the switch on the camera to off, then insert a fully charged battery. (Make sure that the battery's orientation is correct. Also make sure that the battery being used is not damaged).

4. Now flip the camera's switch to ON again.
------------------------------------------------------------
Option No. 2:


If you can open the Setup menu then the camera can be reset which might help:

Turn on the camera.

1. Press MENU SET.

2. Press the left arrow button.

3. Press the down arrow button.

4. Press the right arrow button.

5. Now, press the up arrow button several times until the menu item named RESET is highlighted. Push the right arrow button and then select and set YES when the camera asks to be reset.

When using the zoom button the cam stops working


This suggests the zoom motor has failed. As you only purchased it 2 weeks ago - it should be replaced under warranty
