A CCD problem would explain the black screen, sometimes lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image).

If seen on both your pc monitor as well as the camera's LCD then it's likely a CCD issue and it's no wonder that it will be more expensive than buying a new digicam. This is why you need to be exceptionally careful when taking care of your camera since most are uber sensitive to being damaged by the slightest miss-handling.

CCD image sensor problem occurs in this and other brands; in the next link, for example, check a recall on the Sony T1 and other cameras built around 2002-2004 with a CCD chip problem. The recall is good til 3/31/2009. Only $15 shipping charge ( I dont know if they keep this price ). Here is the link: sony-asia.com/support/announcement/398659

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own;
Check this links that could give you additiona details:

Hope this helps.

I cannot find a download for my Panasonic DMC-TZ3 for Windows 7


You don't need any special software.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Panasonic DMC-TZ3: one day it's working fine, next it won't power on. Tried the "Power Saver" reset technique posted ... didn't work. Battery is fully-charged.


Hello
Try removing the battery and the memory card for 1 minute then return them back. Make sure the battery is inserted properly. If that didn't work, try turning it on without the memory card.


Did you get any error message when you try to turn on your camera?

If your pics are safely in your computer and you're ready to completely erase the card by formatting it, then all you have to do is go into the camera's setup menu and you will find "format"....just follow the on-screen instructions.

Erasing the pictures using the computer is the problem. Your camera does not recognize the card anymore. If your pics are safely on your computer, format the card in the camera to get it working again.

Try letting it drop about 4 tto 6 inches on a hard service covered by a paper towel. Don't let it land on lens of course. You can remove the mem card. It has 13Meg of internal.
