Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

Lumix TZ3 zebra stripes in daylight pictures

Hi,
my newly purchased TZ3 appears to not be able to cope with daylight. All pictures taken without flash (indoors and outdoors) show these grey to white horizontal lines through the images. The fault transfers to the PC screen.
Is there a way to reset the camera to factory default setting although I have not found any info on this in the manual?
I have tried 2 different memory cards (the camera does take a few shots without a memory card) but error remains.
What could be the cause?

Thank you for your assistance.

Hello sodaclub, this fault is normally caused from to much light entering through the lens, the shutter is not closing or working at all.

Its a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. all on a sudden, LCD is not working. Monitors remains dark when I press 'On' button and the photo taken are also dark. However old photos on the SD card I can in the screen...


Hello

If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

Lumix pictures blurry


I would suggest that the image stabilizer might not be working right. Could you upload a photo to Flickr or other location where I could look at the EXIF, or list it here. I would like to see what the camera is writing to the image as the settings when the photo was taken.

Does it make a difference when the image stabilizer is on or off?

Memory card likely has temporary(needs formatting) or permanent problems(needs replacing, common for off branded china junk).

First format the mem card on your camera by pressing center Menu button then scrolling down to the end of the menu to Format. If this does not work, and you have bought a Name Brand SD card; Sandisk/Kingston/Patriot etc, return it to place of purchase with receipt, or creditcard use to purchase it, and they will replace it.

How tu use video recording..


Hi,

The picture that I posted shows a TZ3 mode dial. I added a blue arrow to point out an icon on the mode dial.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Turn the mode dial on the camera so this icon is selected.
2. Switch on the camera.
3. Aim the camera at your subject, press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to begin the video. (Just as you would take a picture.)
4. To stop taking video, press the shutter button fully again.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~When a video starts being taken, its current length will appear on the camera's LCD screen.
~Videos take up more space on the memory card than do pictures.
~If an SD memory card becomes full while recording, then the video will stop automatically.
~Videos can be played back on the camera's "PLAYBACK" mode. They can also be viewed on a TV or downloaded to a computer.

Problem with Panasonic Lumix TZ3 - Software


As long as the camera is working OK, don't worry too much - the software isn't essential - yours is obviously in japanese, so unless you can read jap, installing a font won't help!. When the camera is connected to windows XP, it is just a disc drive - you can see it through windows explorer, and if you open the folder DCIM you will find all the pictures you have taken. You can copy these to anywhere you want. Also, you can use any photo-editing software to open/edit your pix. As I also have an olympus camera I am actually using the olympus software to open/edit the pix on the lumix! For a free photo viewer/basic editor try irfanview from www.irfanview.com. For a really good editor paintshop pro is good, but there are many editor progs outthere both free and pay. Just google photo or image editor
