Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Backlight I am having a few problems, but I'll bet they are all related: 1. backlight icon stays on 2. white lines across picture on playback or: 3. often picture will look b/w; very sharp contrasts. 4. All looks ok when taking picture; problems start when reviewing or putting on computer. I have used "reset" with no help.

White lines appearing on display after picture is taken


I have the same problem, and upon looking into my problem, i recall reading that Sony had used crappy glue in which they attached the CCD to the inner guts of the camera, and when that deteriorates, which doesn't take very long, then your pictures will have lines through them.

I think i remember reading that Sony said they will replace all cameras within 2 years of their manufacture. Call Sony's troubleshooting and support and they may replace it for you.

Hope i helped solve your problem.

White pictures, low battery life, few pictures


I glued a small peice of plastic under the flash and above the camera lens to shade it from the flash when it goes off. I then only had 2 pictures out of 40 that showed a white picture. The plastic peice only sticks out about 1 inch and didn't affect the flash on the subject. I also drilled holes in the bottom and hooked up a 6 volt tractor battery to it this gave me over 1 month of battery life with another identical camera

PowerShot A85 capture fault


Yup, it is a common problem. The shutter is jammed. I bet outside pictures are really overexposed. The horizontal lines are caused by the electronic noise created by the shutter solenoid trying to move the shutter. If the cameraq is no longer under warranty- Sometimes, you can free up the shutter by banging the camera in a hard surface like a desk or table. (Do this carefully, don't get carried away) If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the whole lens unit. this is best if the warranty is still good.

White pictures and lines across pictures


Try this to isolate the problem.
Switch on the camera in auto and put it into full optical zoom. Now turn the camera to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. On full zoom the internal lens will be right up to the outer lens. Now press the button to take a picture. You should be able to see the shutter cover the inside lens and then open again. Did it completely cover the lens? It should do. If not then you will get an over exposed picture or a picture with lines across it.

Lines and circles across all of my pictures


I'm not sure if you still look here or you've already fixed your problem but it has to do with your ram on your computer. I had this problem before. I had a really old Fuji camera but upgraded to the e550 a while ago and these weird grainy lines would still be in my pictures. At first I thought there was something wrong with the camera but after testing it on my brother/mom/dad's computer they pictures came out perfect. I found out it was my ram. Since I was using the onboard video card and it was sharing my ram. One of my cards was corrupted. So if you have more than one ram card try eahc one by itself and see if the problem persists. Hope this helps anyone out there who has this problem.
