Hi

The most likely issues are that the glass in your lens is damaged (you can look down into the lens and see if it is or not) or your CCD is defective or dirty. If it's the CCD you need to take the camera and then the lens apart and clean it. If neither of those works you would need to replace the lens assembly.

If you don't want to do it yourself we are a digital camera repair business and can clean it for you for a very affordable price. If we can help let us know, even if you just need to ask a question.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

The top half of my pictures with a flash are shaded.


Not seeing the pictures I have to guess. If the shade you mention is not like a straight line, but more rounded, try making the picture without the lens hood. Or use a external flash, when you use another than the standard lens. I don't think you can take a picture in manual, with a shutter speed above 1/250 second, because in such case the top or bottom part could become shaded then, but then the shade is in a straight line from left to right.

Lumix DMC-FY2 recently purchased. Screen has developed 'yellow/golden' shade in top left hand corner and faint transpartant spots have now started to appear as well. These marks do not effect...


Usually such screen flickering occurs when you had applied some pressure on the LCD ( can be due to high shocks on the camera such as dropping it from a height, hitting on the LCD ...etc ) and will eventually damage the screen.But it wont affect the pictures you are taking since the image capture is by the inbuilt image sensor.You can claim for the warranty if it's a manufacturing defect and they will service it free of cost.Your valuable feedback would be appreciated.

Still shot has many small white lines across it, giving a washed out look. Sometimes a rapidly clicking sound. Earlier, photos presented as shades of pinks istead of images. Video still works.

Uneven flash


Look carefully at your images taken with flash... on the horizontal image is the lower part of the image slighty darker and have a rounded fall off at the edges? Is the vertical image dark side a straight hard line or is there a rounding to the top and bottom?

What we are looking at is if you have a very wide angle lens with the lens shade attached to the lens, then the built-in flash catches part of the lens shade and make a shadow on your subject... take the lens shade off and try the same shot and see if that makes a difference...

Have a great day...
