Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera

Black LCD screen

You asked me if it was under warranty. It's been over two years. I don't think so. Isn't there anything I can try on my own?

    We do not have a multimeter. In desperation my husband opened the back of the camera and looked at everything (maybe jiggled the orange ribbon) Now the shutter lets it some light and takes funny pictures with stripes.

    I think we paid about$250 for the camera. We could take it to a local camera shop and get an estimate.

    Any advice? Thanks a lot!!

Hi guys. If an LZ1/2 camera has a black lcd screen, the problem is most likely that the flex(orange ribbon) from the CCD is loose in its connector. If this flex is a little skew it will give a strange picture. I normally make shure the flex is properly inserted before using a tiny amount of contact adhesive to hold the securing clip in position.

Do you have a multimeter? do you want to open the camera? None of these things I recommend unless you are fully aware of what you are doing and have had experience doing it before. How much was the camera? You could try and get an estimate on how much it would be to repair the camera.
Keep me posted,
Lee

If your LCD doesn't light up then it's either the backlight or the LCD, you can open up the camera and check the cables before buying any parts. Some LCD screens come with the backlight, some don't; not sure if this one does or not.

IF it was water damage, you probably have corrosion on the main PCB and won't be able to fix it without replacing the board... open it up and check for corrosion!

Hope this helps.

I have a DMC-TZ2 that from today started to distort the image taken from the sensor. In mode "review" the lcd screen works perfectly so I guess is the sensor. When turning on the camara on...


You cannot fix this yourself as the sensor has failed.

If the camera is under warranty send it back for repair. If it isn't then write a firmly worded but polite demand to Panasonic anyway demanding a goodwill repair. The sensor is only about four years old and has certainly failed prematurely and there are now plenty of precedents in the digital camera industry for putting such faults right out of warranty.

Unfortunately this is and will remain a common fault with all digital cameras. Sensors can fail at any time from the day of manufacture, but on average should last an absolute minimum of five years.

I cannot take pictures because the screen is black...it will not show the view i want to capture...how can i fix this problem? pls help me :(


First of all you need to identify whether your LCD screen is bad or not. You can do this by shooting a picture and downloading it to your PC. If the picture is ok, then your LCD is bad. You need to replace the LCD screen. It is not cheap to replace it.

If your camera is under warranty, try to get it fixed on warranty terms.

A cheaper way, but time consuming. Try to replace the LCD yourself. Remember that you are doing it on your own risk. Warranty becomes void once you open the camera.

Learn some basics from websites. Look at the following web sites:

.http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/fixing-or-replacing-broken-lcd-screen.html


If you think you can do it, then buy a jewellers screwdriver set for $1 from Dollar store. Bua a used camera (a similar one sold for parts, but with good LCD) through ebay.com. You have to look for it. You may be able to get it very cheap, may be under $15. Remove the casing on the camera (5-6 screws). Carefully and gently remove the casing, dont break it. Once you open it, usually LCD is immediately accessible.

I think it is still under warranty because you told its not a year old. Ask Sony about its warranty cover.

Lcd scrren blank on 4 month old nikon s200 coolpix


Sounds like Nikon are just trying to get out of fixing it.
Have you read the terms of the warranty. If the screen is not working then it is more than likely an electronic fault and they are covered by the warranty. The only way the screen would not be covered is if it was damaged by the owner. The screen is part of the camera and therefore comes under the warranty, unless it specifically states that it is not covered in the warranty. Ask a consumer rights department. Don't take no for an answer.

In shooting mode the lcd screen is black


Olympus says this is a bad image processing chip. They will replace it at no charge if you are still within the year warranty period. They require proof of purchase i.e. receipt, copy of charge card statement, copy of warranty card, etc. Contact them for further information on how to return it.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem


No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
