First of all, you should stop saving any new files to you canon camera (or SD card) or taking new pictures with you camera.

The cloudy spots tell me that water has entered the camera, this will be a very costly repair. you might be better off just replacing the camera as it will be cheaper than the repair bill on yours.

That's up to you. That's why they give YOU the choice.

If all you're going to do with the pictures are to post them on the web and/or email them to friends, choose a small size and Standard quality. If there's a chance you might want to print some of them, choose the largest size and the Fine quality.

There is a trade-off between picture size/quality and memory space, but at the current prices this shouldn't be a major factor. Unless you're going on a long trip without additional memory cards, it shouldn't matter whether your memory card can hold three hundred or five hundred pictures.

Try turning off the "shake control". Does that help? Also, go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.

Easy...go into the menu and find "copy". There you will have the option to copy the internal memory contents to a memory card.

Well, obviously you're going to need to get the card out so pull it out using a pair of needle-nosed pliers. If this causes some sort of problem, the problem was there anyway. When you get it out, don't try to reinsert it....just get a new card.

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service center. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be 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 centre 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.

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.

Many people ask if they can use their digital camera as a webcam. In the early days of digital imaging, it made sense to dual-function a camera because a webcam was a serious investment. However, webcams are now so inexpensive that manufacturers are not considering this functionality important in their digital cameras. In fact even the word 'webcam' creates the impression of bad imaging, so associating this function with a camera actually makes the camera seem 'cheap'.

Your camera is actually quite a new, and a nice camera. It doesn't make a lot of sense for Panasonic to make it work as a webcam, because it's a waste. And in any case, you'd expect a webcam to be powered by a wall outlet or the USB... but most modern cameras like yours don't come with adapter-power, they have battery chargers instead. And they take too much current to use the USB power. By the time they'd added the extras to make it work properly as a webcam, you could BUY a USB webcam separately.

Anyway, back to your question... so, can your camera be used as a webcam? Probably not, but here's how you can tell. Make sure you've installed all the software you can find for your camera, power it up, and plug it in. Windows will tell you if it has a webcam function. If it's a webcam, then it will appear in "My Computer" as a device, right along with all the disk drives. To be sure, go to your control panel and select "Scanners and Cameras". Is your camera listed? If not... it's not a webcam.

In the unlikely event that you have a 'video in' on your computer, and that your camera has a 'video out' then you can follow the instructions on the sony site ("how to use a digital still camera as a webcam"); but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection.

Sorry this wasn't the news you really wanted.
