Viewfinder completely dead. Tech able user
The price for the viewfinder is around 150 bucks along. Time you pay for labor, it will be close to the total cost. There have been a few complaints about it but not enough to matter. Was it dropped or did it just quit?
The screen went blak with a back light
This is a common problem with this set. Could you see the old images that you might have saved on this?

Hi, memory card error while trying to format. The
Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If
not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from
Amazon.com or Buy.com
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a
non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do
in the first place.
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it
into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to
make sure it works fine now.
The wide-telephoto lever and the shutter are
Could be some moisture causing the sticking. You could bury the camera in rice for a couple of days to absorb the moisture. As far as focusing on a correct subject in a close-up, you should set your auto focus on spot focussing. Then, only a tiny portion of the center of your screen is the focus point. Center the important part and press the shutter half-way to lock the focus and then you can move the camera to a better position and press the rest of the way.

Hi I think it may be because the recommended size card is about 1/2 gb and check out your amnual or go to a web site which allows the downloading the manual
The lens is getting stuck when you power up the camera, have one doing the same thing as well as giving me a card read error.
Panasonic DMC-FZ1 Flash still not working
If you have a lightning symbol followed by “A” in the upper left corner of display, try to change it to forced flash (only lightning symbol) or reduce iso settings because probably the camera “thinks” there’s sufficient light for the photo.
The lens motor mechanism is very fragile and will stoppworkin even if you look at it too hard let alone drop it.
The cost of repair will be high - best bet is to write it off[are you insured against accidental damage?]Check out the manufacturer off course.
Flash is not working
The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).
If you zoom to less than 12x
Sorry you're having such a problem with the fz1 w/b-macro. Here is a shot of the stock fz1 w/b-macro at full 12x zoom - resized only. Try practicing on still objects such as coins or jewlery. If you are beyond 10-12 inches you are probably too far away.
"Shutter jiggle" icon
it's just telling that under the current conditions (zoom, light, etc.) that it would be best to use a tripod or a very steady hand when taking the picture. This is NOT a sensor in the camera that is telling you that you're shaking the camera too much -- that's a common misconception. You are on the right track when you say that you need more light to take your pictures -- at least more light to take hand-held pictures. If you're getting good results anyway, it just means you have a steady hand!
Windows sees the camera as just another drive. With USB connection I open the folder on camera and copy files to a folder on the hard drive on my PC with Windows Explorer.
Or I slip it in my card reader, which windows sees as just another drive.
Wide angle adapter
I wouldn't worry about the adapter. I'm going to try ordering a telephoto converter this weekend.

You can turn the LCD brightness up by using the "monitor" setting. Either that or increase the ISO setting.
