Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera

2 Answers

After a little shock the camera still works, but: turns the pictures in a confused way, one is upsite down, the next on the left and so on. This would not be a big problem, but: after a short time the display ask for switch off and then to switch on the camera. What can I do to use my Lumix DMC-FX100 more comfortable? Thank you, E.B.

    Hi tbreeze47 and thank you for helping to me. After translate your instructions into german I will risk to open the camera (it is a Lumix DMC-FX 100 but I suppose that there is not a big difference) but in my small precision screwdriver set the smallest is just missing. So I will buy another set tomorrow and continue.
    I let you know if I was succesful or not.
    Thanks, Edith.

    Hitbreeze47,

    now Iopened the body and there are two copper ribbons but all ends of them are wellfixed so I didn't them lift up. Bothends to the mainboard are fixed by soldering and additional with bail ormounting bracket. The other both ends are disappearing behind the backside ofthe display (a smooth silver surface).

    Do youstill think that I should take the ribbon connector out and reseat it? And if Iwould do this way, how to fix them again?

    Thank youfor helping me! Edith.

Does it flash any error code on the camera before/after it asks you to turn off?

    This is definitely not a lens related problem(which I thinks is what some of the experts suggested on seeing your replies).If the lens is the problem, the camera will flash an error message "Lens Error" and shut off.The problem seems more like an issue with shutter release and/or optical sensor displacement. I would strongly advice that you seek the assistance of a qualified tech to get it fixed. Panasonic will rip you off, so local tech is the best option.

It sounds to me like a ribbon connector got jarred slightly loose, and some strange things are effecting the display. To fix this kind of problem, the camera will have to be taken apart, and the ribbon connectors reseated. They are held to plastic receptacles on the main board, and there are some to the LCD display, and one from the button control board. There are small plastic tabs at the end of the connectors that you gently lift up, releasing the pressure on the copper ribbon connectors. You can then take the ribbon connector out, and reseat it, gently pushing the top holding piece back down on the board connector assembly. There are a few screws on the cover, maybe 6 or 7, and some are hidden in the USB compartment sometimes, but if you take your time, and use a small philips (Walmart or Dollar Store in the small Precision Screwdriver set...a buck at the dollar store).
Just try to keep track of what screws go where. The cover screws are usually identical, but there can be two or more types inside the camera, in case you need to replace the LCD, etc. Keep track of them, since they're small and easy to mistake, and you can strip out a thread using a slightly larger screw.
If you're uncomfortable with the idea of tearing into it yourself, take it in to a repair shop and see what they think, and how much it would cost to repair. Then you can take it from there.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have a panasonic lumix DMC FZ 45 and I cannot figure out how to take panoramic pictures. When I take pictures of the room or view it just keeps saying next, retake and exit. Can you help please?


Hi. In Scene>panorama assist, a grid is shown on screen and things get confusing!

1. The initial choice needs to be made between

left >right (for a sequence of shots made while 'panning' towards the right)

right >left.

down >up.

up >down.

e.g. if 'left >right' is selected:-

2. After the first shot has been taken, a preview is displayed without the grid.
- the 1st shot can be cancelled with 'retake', or saved for the sequence with 'next'.

3. If 'next' was selected a 'ghost', of what was in the right hand panel of the 1st image, will be shown on the left as an overlay in the LCD display, together with the grid.

The camera can now be panned to the right to try to align the ghost of the right part of the 1st shot with the left side of the new view. The 2nd shot can now be taken,

The combined image is shown, without the grid, which may or may not show good alignment of the 1st and 2nd images - so you can choose to 'retake' the 2nd image, or choose 'next' again.

If you choose 'next', it's back to no.3, above

....and so on until you choose exit, when the sequence can be transfered to PC for stitching with an image editing program.

Hope that helps!

Hello there

From the start menu, left click on control menu (these are the steps for XP yours might be a little different). Then on the dialog box that pops up, left click on the "Printers and other Hardware" option.

Another dialog box will pop up. Left click on the scanners and cameras option to bring another dialog box up. From there double click with the left mouse key on the icon for your camera. This will bring up the "Scanner and Camera Wizard."

Left click the next key to get to the image capture screen, position the camera and left click on the word "Take Picture" below the image. The image will show up on the scrolling menu next to the image capture part of the box. Select it (left click the small box next to the image to get a check mark in the box) or use the select all option to get all pictures, then left click the next key.

Select the picture destination from the drop down menus that appear and hit the next key to save. The next dialog box will ask what is to be done with the pictures. Select the option in front of the correct choice and hit the next key to bring up the final screen.

From here the picture location will be able to be opened. Left click on finish if finished or select the other appropriate choice. The images should be on the computer and ready to work with.
If there is no scanner and camera wizard available try the next option(if you are using iphoto plus).

Open iPhoto Plus and left click on the file option. From the drop down menu, scroll down to acquire and select source. Left click on select source.

From the dialog box that pops up, select your particular camera by left clicking on the down arrow key and scroll downward until your camera is found. Select the camera from the list by left clicking on it and then left click the ok button. (If your camera is already selected, this step may be unnecessary).

The picture will appear in a drop down menu on the other side of the video feed. Scroll down if need be and select the picture or left click the "select all" button if you would like all of them and then left click get pictures.

The zoom won't work on my Canon A460


Your zoom may be turned off, here is how you can turn it back on:
When you are about to take a picture, press the little menu button, then press down until it says digital zoom, if the little black box is over-top of 'off' change it to say 'on'.
Hope this helps.....and makes sense.

Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?


Hi Jeanice21, I just posted the same problem a few minutes ago with my SD400. I followed a few steps of the suggested solutions and here's what worked for me.

1) take apart the front and back by unscrewing the six screws holding the camera together
2) on the left of the flash, there are two little retangular holes with grooved dials in them
3) using a little flat head screwdriver, push up or down to turn the grooves while power up in the movie or capture mode
4) the lens retracted at this point and my camera started working again. Good luck!

Buttons don't work


Hi
Have you turned the mode lever to the point at the setting that looks like a little camera, some thing like [O].

Try This:
1. Turn the Mode lever to [O]
2. Press the function button. (Found to the left of the eyepiece/viewfinder)
3. Use the up and down buttons to get to the setting you want to change (found on the dial to the next to the LCD screen).
4. When you get to the setting you want to change use the right arrow to enter and make the change use the left to go back to the main menu.

Hope that helps.

Loading film in my vintage camera..help!


The "magic needles" while making the camera easy to load are about as intuitive as a dead skunk, I had a similar confusion when I got an ME Super. Put the film can in the left side of the camera back (the side with the little thing sticking out is the bottom, it looks upside down this way, but that is correct). Next push the film winder down, this will semi-lock the can into place. Now pull the film-lead across the camera and push it down between some of the white "magic needles on the opposite spool(push it in a bit so that it will stay). Next advance the lever; release the shutter. If the spool starts to turn you are doing it right. Now close the door and continue advancing and clicking until the little frame number window on top reads 1.

Black screen


Isn't there a display on/off button on the back? It's purpose is to turn off the LCD display to save batteries, thus aiming your pictures using the optical viewfinder instead. Look for a button labeled "Disp.", it's in the lower left corner. Turn the camera on and press this button once.

If this doesn't work, am concerned that you also mention the pictures are also black. This can indicate a potential failure of the CCD image sensor, or its connectors from impact shock. To fix would require actually opening the camera, and can be more expensive to fix than the worth of the camera. If Canon quotes a fixing price that's shocking, consider gently tapping the camera against a hard surface on its padded USB cover. This may help reestablish a connection of the sensor's ribbon cable to its connector.
