Hi,

Do you mean DMC-FZ7?

I own one. Assuming that the camera is working normally, then I know two settings that will cause the zoom to be fixed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Suggestion No. 1:

If the zoom is fixed at the wide end:

1. Turn the mode dial to "P". Now turn on the camera.
2. Press "MENU SET".
3. Press the up arrow button.
4. Now, a menu item named "CONVERSION" should be highlighted. Press the right arrow button.
5. A sub-menu screen should now pop up, select and set "OFF".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion No. 2:

If the zoom is fixed at the telephoto end:

1. Follow Suggestion No.1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion No. 3:

If none of the above solve the problem, then the lens might have been knocked slightly out of position.

~If the camera has been dropped.
~If the camera has been thumped or banged.
~If while zooming, the lens was obstructed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The zoom motor also could have died, it costs about $50.00 U.S. at Panasonic.com.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My best advice would be to contact panasonic customer service.

First thing Ariel is to read the manual. Specs say it has something called 'Intelligent Zoom', so it might be by design.

Can i zoom when in movie mode


Reviews by camera review websites and owners alike, have noted the inability of the camera to zoom while in movie mode. Other cameras in the Lumix line up do have the capability, but it appears that this one does not.

I hope this helped.

Lens won't come out after dropping camera.


Only lightly toasted. The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. There is no safe DIY fix for either condition, but the camera can be repaired by the manufacturer or at a local camera shop. Make sure to get an estimate first -- you may need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

No sound in recording videos


Do you mean in your camera or on your computer. If on your computer Google K-Lite. Hear you can download the codec drivers to update your computer to view and hear the movies you record.

Panasonic DMC-TZ1 operates in Playback mode only


Hi,

The position from the dial wheel is not corresponding with the electrical position. If you can do it by yourself you can adjust it and tighten the midscrew from the dialwheel

Instruction manual


Hi,

I have an FZ7K, here’s what I do:

#1. Set the mode dial on top of the camera to “A”.
#2. Set the aperture to the smallest f/number possible, f/2.8, f/3.2, f/3.3.
#3. Now take pictures standing as close to the subject as possible, (or zoom the lens).

For even better results, have the background farther away from your subject.
