Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

A red image pops up when I take a pic

Everytime I take a pic I have a little red box pop up on the upper right hand corner and in the box it has an arrow pointing in the box I wish I could see images just to show you. I thought my memory card was full so I now have deleted all my pics but it didn't solve my problems. Any help would be great

Hi,

I have an DMC-FZ7K, I know exactly what you mean.

The red box with the arrow inside it flashes because the camera is writing the pictures or videos to the SD card.

When you stop taking a video, the box disappears, because the video has finished transferring to the card.

This red box is perfectly normal, and nothing to worry about. Furthermore this has absolutely nothing to do with the battery being dead or the card being full.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
When the battery dies, only the BATTERY ICON flashes.

When the SD card is full, a message saying so pops up on the screen.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is a link for if you would like to recover the pictures you deleted:

I chose the DMC-TZ3A since I didn't know what the letter was at the end of the model number for your particular camera. If this is the camera

Here is a link to the manual

If not

Here is link to the Lumix series cameras

Pg 25 indicates that flashing red in the upper right corner is the battery needing to be recharged. If the battery was recently recharge and its turning red on the screen, it could be that the battery isn't holding a charge and may need to be replaced.

I didn't see any other error messages on the screen indicating that icon unless b,c, or d models have a different error message in that area of the screen.

When I try to take the pic the #5" comes on and flashes at the upper left hand corner. I tried turning the camera off and it still is flasing. I turned the camera off then opened the door to the CF card...


If you hear a click and then get Error #5 then either the flash is not popping up as it should or the two little switches under the flash are stuck. Gently help the flash up, then turn the camera off and on again to clear the error message. I found the hinge on my flash was corroded, probably due to getting sea water in it. Hope that helps.

My brand new just put batteries in it powershot is displaying NO IMAGE. the lens won't even pop out! what the hell?


LOL, sounds like you're in "picture review" mode. Except that you haven't taken any pictures yet, so there's "NO IMAGE" on your card just yet. To take a picture, you need to put your camera in "camera" mode. Slide that tiny slide switch in the upper right all the way up until it's next to that little red camera. Now take a picture.

Delay in recording pic


check the menu settings for the size of the picture you are saving. How many megs per image. Big picture means slower recording. Unless you do some serious, high-quality photo printing, you don't need super high resolution images.

Camera will not take photo


I don't know which shooting mode you are in, but the red shaking camera icon indicates that based on the settings that your camera is in, you may experience camera shake (which is your image stabilizer or "is" in action). The yellow blinking indicator light means that your camera is having a hard time achieving proper exposure and that the shutter speed with be slowed down to reach a proper exposure. Extending the shutter speed means that you are at risk for camera shake (i.e. blurry image).
Solutions for this are:
  • increase ISO
  • use a tripod
  • use flash
Hope this helps!

Image too Bright


It sounds like you might be accidentally in Manual mode (little red camera with M by it).

Make sure the mode dial in the upper left corner is set to "Automatic" (select the little red camera "without" the M by it).

Setup and loading pictures..


my computer makes the windows uploder pop-up. when it pops up make sure it says "cyber-shot photo viewer" or something of the like.

then right click on the little binoculars in your taskbar (look down at the far right corner where all those little icons are, it's called "cyber-shot viewer media check tool"

right click, import settings, then specify a file to drop the images.

thats the only thing i can think of. call sony if that doesn't help. good luck
