The camera,DMC-LZ1, is not recognized

If you're having trouble downloading pictures, just use a card reader...it does a better job anyway. typrice_140.jpg

Lens is stuck half open, message says turn off camera and turn on again


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.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Screen is black or blank. Displays still show but

LCD screen is damaged and replacing the lens is the solution for your camera.

Flash not working

Hi there.
look in the camera's settings to see if the flash is turned on, if it is and the flash still does not work you will need to take it to a service center for them to replace the halogen bulb.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Panasonic digital camera has black screen

CCD sensor faulty especially if you can play back pictures that were captured properly, but have a blank screen in capture mode. Replace sensor and camera will work fine.

Flash is not working?

Not likely. Unless the flash setting has been turned to off (a lightening bolt with a circle and cross through it on screen or in a menu), or to very low power, or you are in a camera mode that turns the flash off (check your exposure scene modes) this requires replacement. You could send it away for a quote through a camera store but prepare for the worst $$$

Software for Lumix® Digital

No. These cameras store images in a JPEG format and can be used with any software package that can open a JPEG image.
