No image output on screen or viewfinder

If you can see images in play mode, previously taken pics, then check to see if iris is opening and closing, could be seized vanes on iris motor. Tap on the lens(just not on the glass) repeatedly, this might help jog the vanes open. remove batteries, reinsert them after an hour, or a cup of coffee. If it persists press the reset button . all your settings will be cleared. Check to see if there's a second internal battery used for function memory, if there is, remove that one too for a while. Sounds a lot like the global CCD sensor problems that most manucturers had last year, but I don't remember anything regarding panasonic in that context. Use your warranty if valid Good luck

Take a good photograph

I shied away from several cameras through various reasons, quality problems.... 8 mp pushing the limits... steep learning curve and so on. The LC1 allows you to get started with excellent results by using auto, so you don't miss any shots and you can introduce yourself gradually in to manual without the frustration of less than acceptable shots. Set all settings to 'A', initially use spot metering, aim at your subject, half depress shutter button for the camera to focus, fully press to take the photo.

Lumix® digital camera storage path

Unlike 35mm cameras that store images on film, Lumix® Digital Cameras store images on SD Memory Cards, which make sharing and storing your pictures easy and convenient. You simply insert an SD Memory Card into the camera, take pictures until the card is full, and then you can transfer the pictures onto a compatible PC. Once you saved all your pictures, you can erase the card and start all over again.

Effective megapixels

Effective megapixels are slightly less than the total number of pixels normally stated for an image sensor. They represent the actual number of pixels used to record an image.

MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer

The MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer helps correct hand movement from shaky hands, one of the main reasons why cameras produce blurry images. Lumix® Digital Cameras with MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer technology have a built-in gyrosensor that detects any hand movement and relays a signal to a tiny microcomputer inside the camera, which instantly calculates the compensation needed. A linear motor then shifts the Optical Image Stabilizer lens as necessary to guide incoming light from the image straight to the CCD. You won't even notice it working—all you'll see are the outstanding results!

If you have a older Lumix that does not want to power on

As you know Panasonic issues Firmware Updates that can be downloaded online, and then installed using a computer and an SD card. Some of those Firmware Updates made the cameras refuse to turn on if the battery was not an "approved" Panasonic battery. This significant change was not publicly announced. Panasonic Lumix batteries are available, but there are also dozens of different generic Lumix batteries available, and there is no reference source as to which generic batteries are "approved." Therefore I would encourage you if you have a Lumix camera that is balking on startup to first try a genuine Panasonic Lumix battery that is fully charged. You may find that the only problem was a generic battery that the camera did not care for. (And of course many "Lumix" batteries sold online are not actually Lumix batteries, but merely counterfeits. They have Lumix markings and are often very good imitations on visual inspection.) Another reason some Lumix cameras will not power up is the memory card. Sometimes people use a newer SDHC type card in an older Lumix, and the camera goes into electronic spasms trying to read the newer card. An older plain vanilla SD card will often solve the problem instantly. If a Lumix camera is not powering up with a 8gb SDHC card there is a good chance it will power up immediately with a 1gb SD card. I frequently recommend the Lumix TZ5 to people starting out, as it is a quality build, metal, not toy-like plastic, has more manual controls than most people will ever use, and the engineering is remarkable. I repair TZ cameras and donate them to homeless shelters and domestic abuse safe houses and college photography students and such, as they have full User Manuals available to download, full Service Manuals available for download in PDF format, have a very gentle learning curve, and produce photographs that are superior to many of the current cameras in the 600 to 800 dollar range. Yet a used TZ5 can be bought for 50 dollars or so. Update the Firmware to v 1.2, never carry it in a leather camera case or pocket or purse or with any cloth of any kind, and you have a superb camera for many years.

Caution about Lumix cameras with Japanese language

Some Panasonic Lumix cameras are made in Japan expressly for Japanese Buyers. These cameras may be programmed in Japanese and Japanese only. They cannot in any way be converted to English or any other language. Most Lumix cameras have a menu option that allows choice of language. That option is not available in some Japan-originated cameras. I see Lumix cameras often on eBay that are listed as "From Japan". Be careful. I advise you ask the Seller to take photos of the LCD screen of that specific camera being sold with the menu choices showing, to be certain that it is not a Japanese language only camera. Insist also on a photo of the bottom plate. Is it in Japanese? Sellers have told me in the past "You can choose any language easily". Yes, that is true. If the Lumix camera was made in Japan for export. But if it was made in Japan for use in Japan it may not be true.
