Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera
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.
