    everything works excpet shutter won't open automatically. I can "push" it open but it will not stay

    Panasonic "Lumix" DMC-LZ7 point-and-shoot digital camera:

    when the camera is turned on and the lens barrel is extended, the automatic lens cover refuses to open. it can be opened manually, but it immediately springs shut when let go. the camera still takes pictures of the closed shutter, and appears to have no other problems. the camera has been well taken care of, and never been jarred or dropped; the problem arose inexplicably. any suggestions?

let me explain to you guys, these cameras are slim line cameras and if dropped or mishandled it is going to give problems. you cant blame the camera if you are not handling it corectly.

SOURCE: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Lens Won´t Open

This is a common problem with TZ3s. Power the camera on, then puff a little graphite onto the lens cover and coax it open with a tooth pic. Do this, powering the camera on/off till lens opens normally. Add little more graphite if necessary, but sparingly.

Graphite is used because it is extremely slippery, but will not attract dust like an oil will. At the same time, it is black! so you don't want to use anymore than absolutely necessary make lens work. Even then, check to be sure lens itself is clean after, and wipe carefully with an Eyeglass lens cloth only if necessary.

Another option in to remove the lens cover altogether by just pulling the leafs out of the camera. Another option is to sell your working but lens cover problem to a repairman on ebay, and buy a good TZ3 or TZ5 on ebay used, refurbished or new. Good prices if you bide your time.

Don't put in your best bid to the very last minute of the auction. In the mean time, put a camera you are interested in on your MyEbay Watch list and set a reminder alarm on your cell phone about 5 minutes before the auction is to close, then if the price is still good, enter your best bid 30 seconds before the end of the auction. Refresh the auction page on your PC to keep track of the bidding right up to the last 30 minutes so you can see the last remain bid and if it is worth outbidding on this camera. Again, if you are not in a hurry and bide your time, you can get a great buy. There are plenty of these cameras sold every day.

SOURCE: panasonic lumix dmc-lz7 lens barrel doesn't move

Hi Sarah I am Vortash it shouldnt need to be a new camera a good clean out by an engineer should cure the problem provided you havent tried to force the lens back in if it was out , he will clean it with white spirit or alchahol and re set the lens mechanism and it shuold be fine .. but get an estimate first as the economics may be in favour of a new camera if it would cost too much .. in the uk here we charge approx $25 for that but it may be more over the pond .. regards Vortash

SOURCE: Lumix DMC-FX01 Buttons not working

Remove the card and battery. Clean the battery contacts inside camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Be sure battery is charged. Press all buttons on camera. Insert card and then the battery. See if it works. If you can now get into the setup menu, you can do a reset from the menu.

No sound


Hi There, the DMCLZ7 has motion video recording with audio. Go into the menu option that shows you where to turn on the mic. Set to turn on and you should be ok.

Lens cover only opens half-way


If the lens barrel isn't fully extending on power up, that will prevent the lens cover shutters from springing open. There is a stationary prong that pushes the cover closed when the barrel is retracted.

Does the camera work otherwise? Take pictures thru the half open lens?
