What do you mean 'won't work'. Won't power on?

If it won't power on and camera and battery is new. I would suspect batterry or charger fault to begin with, assuming you know the outlet socket you charged it in is good. Charger should have green light on while charging batt for about 3 hours.

If you have a voltmeter, outside terminals of charged battery should read about 3.7 to 4Volts. Also be sure battery is installed correctly. Don't belive it can be reversed, but not sure.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my flash bulb doesn't work, picture are dark

Do you have it turned off? Is there a picture of a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt until the screen shows a lightning bolt and an "a". Also, do you have the camera set on a scene mode such as night? The flash won't go off in some scene modes.

SOURCE: When I turn the camera

This is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Panasonic service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault.

SOURCE: My camera is coming up with a system error (zoom)

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

I just took the camera out of the box and after fully charging the battery, I began to check out my new panasonic lumix DMC-FS7. After taking 2-3 pics, the camera stopped working and an error message...


Go into the menu and find "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. If this does not solve the problem, then you need to return the camera.

I have a new Lumix DMC-FS11 How can I rotate video footage 90 degrees so it plays the right way when down loaded ?? Thanks


You can't. Not without special software and a *really* powerful computer. Rotating a video takes an enormous amount of number crunching and processing time and even then you'll suffer a very significant loss of quality.

Sorry this is not the answer you hoped for, but rotating a single still image is one matter and a video is a different ball game altogether.

How to change the language to english because its in japanese language?


You can download the manual (in english) from here .....

http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/Products/LUMIX+Digital+Cameras/Stylish+Compact/DMC-FS7/Manuals/1994677/index.html;jsessionid=0a6d28f030d771f7f5cda5bb4afaa2aa879f33d20d0a.e34MaN0RbxyTbO0LbxiRax4Kb30Pe6fznA5Pp7ftolbGmkTy?trackInfo=true

The important thing to note is that irrespective which language its in, the menu choices are the same in all languages. i.e. if menu choice one is <data> in english, its the same in Japanese - even if it looks like a stream of rather pretty characters.

Menu language is dealt with on page 29 of the manual. It looks like a simple change if you recognise the icons they have used.

No live video output on PC via composite video socket.


That's only for playing back videos you shot on the camera. It doesn't provide live view to an external source.
