    Hi could you clarify, the plastic doors in front of the lens are stuck half open, but the lens has retracted inside the camera or is the lens in half open position outside of the camera

    It did'nt help me fix it, so I still have to take it to a repair shop; but I kind of expected that, I was just hoping that there might have been a simple solution!
    Thanks anyway!

    Sounds like the camera has been dropped or the lens has taken a hit, you can possibly get the doors to close by helping them a bit but its probably not going to solve the problem that the camera doesn't stay powered on.

    Your camera probably flashes on and off, its turning off because its unable to extend the lens out from the camera, the cameras lens will have to be either repaired or replaced entirely.

    A repairer is most likely going to charge you 150+ for this repair.

We bought a brand new lumix Dmc TZ4 about a year and a half ago from a reputable seller on Amazon. worked for two days, then without any accidents or incidents, it started saying low battery, even when it...


Hello there.

Since you already changed the battery and still having the same problem, let's try other things.

First, remove the SD card from your camera and try to turn it on. Make sure your battery has a charge.

If that works, then it means the problem is with the SD card.

Also make sure that the battery cover is locked firmly.

Try those first and then update me.

Water damage - screen asking to turn off camera


Hi!
The lens should be taken apart and cleaned. It could be a focus problem. In the worst case it could be a bad lens driver IC. It's a hardware fault not software so you should give it to a repair shop or Panasonic service center.

Sorry for the bad news.

How do I fix a stuck lens stutter (not cover) on a Lumix Camera?


Unfortunately, this is not a problem that I would attempt myself, and unless you are experienced with micro-electronics I would seriously caution you from attempting it yourself.
This is not an old camera model, do you still have a warranty? If so, I suggest bringing it (or sending it) to the nearest Panasonic authorized repair center.
If it is out of warranty, call and find out what Panasonic charges for servicing this camera model. Typically they have a flat rate for servicing each particular model. You might consider picking one up on Ebay if the repair cost is too high. But please know that this is not like old SLR's which could be repaired at home.

Lens cover is stuck half way open on Lumix DMC-TZ3


argh! me, too! i love this camera, but the lens cover is just plain stupid. we used the camera at the beach for a couple days, and i could tell a grain of sand got stuck behind the lens cover. now it is jammed and the camera is totally out of commission. why make a camera built for outdoor conditions, then put a lens cover like that on it!! i can't find a tech who can fix it, either. went to three shops in NYC and all said the cost to deal with it would pretty much buy me a new one... ! :(

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?
