    I had hoped for a plan of action short of blowing a minimum of $106 with no guarantee of sucess by sending my fx07 to Panasonic

You really need to take this camera to a repair center near you for the repair because there's no way that you can fix it by yourself and also to avoid another problem that may arise...

Good luck....

The contact points that are part of the camera body are some times flexible. look at these inside and on the lid to see if one is loose or not riding high enough to make full contact with the battery.

Remove your memory card and reinsert it.Check the mode dial and be certain it is in the right mode for your normal use.

If the battery compartment contacts are looking okay, use double or triple As which ever is called for for your camera. If then, the power switch fails to gain any activity before shutdown, you've broken something inside, most likely a little circuit board is dislodged but getting into the guts is no easy task.

At this point, I'd say its fixable and worth the 106 dollars to take it in. Go for it, no kidding. If you can replace it for twice that amount then do so.

You will have to send your camera in for repairs either to panasonic or to another place which repairs your brand.

I recommend against trying to fix these yourself, as they are a real pain in putting back together.

Most likely the phone was damaged in the fall. Small misalignments can create big problems for the phone. Most likely, it should be repaired by a professional.

Hi,

Did you try replacing it with the new batteries?

    Here are few more troubleshooting steps:


    Polish
    the terminals with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are clean.
    If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter,
    this may cause poor contact and power may not be fully supplied to the
    camera.










    Also,
    polish the battery charger terminals with a dry cloth before charging
    the battery. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or
    similar matter, this may cause poor contact and the battery may not be
    fully charged.


    If
    the lens does not extend then it is possible that it has become jammed.
    Sometimes this can cause the camera to sense an error and shut itself
    down immediately after powering on.










    There
    are other explanations for the behavior, but if the lens does not move
    this is the most likely cause. If the lens does extend but then the
    camera shuts right back off it is possible that an inner component such
    as the focusing element is not functioning properly

    The battery cover or CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed.

    Most
    cameras have a lock mechanism on the battery cover. The camera will not
    turn on if the battery cover is not locked or securely closed, or if
    the CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed. Make sure
    these covers are securely closed.

    If you still face the problem then the only solution is to get it repaired.

Lcd becomes visible every time i turne lcd on,


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Kenmore 110 washer drum spins with lid open during Rinse/Spin


Slow agitator could be linked to shaft bearings going south. Pull the agitator off and check the block on top of the shaft. With everything turned off, try to turn the shaft. It should turn freely both ways. Other things to slow down the works could be a very worn drive belt from the motor.
The lid switch problem seems to be a wiring short--trace the wiring back from the switch to where ever it ends up (at the timer?). If it winds up at a relay, the contacts may be stuck together. It would be nice to have a wiring diagram--ah well. Don't know if any of this helps, good luck.

You might want to test the inlet valves for a very low resistance reading or a dead short Also check the motor etc for a short to earth using a Insulation Tester. Does it pop the fuse while it's meant to be filling up or while it should be spinning or washing? Cheers

Samsung L730 wont extend lens and dosent turn on right


Try removing the batteries and memory card. Let the camera set for awhile. Put the batteries back in but not the memory card, restart the camera. Does it work know? If it does, turn the camera off put the memory card back in. Turn the camera on, does it work now? If it doesn't, replace the memory card.

Sony DSC W70 lens stuck!


This is what I found out on this and how I fixed it. This is all relative to my camera. What I found out was the view finder has a small detent which rides in a groove. When droped or bumped it falls out of the groove. To fix this I had to remove the lens assembly and realign the view finder guide. I was a fairly simple procedure.
