20 Most Recent Panasonic Lumix DMC-F7 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Oh dear!!! Your son is very naughty!!! You should never connect cables or parts from another device to other devices not meant for them, unless they are a basic universal usb type cable etc. Most likely your son has fried a very delicate part inside you camera. It may well have worked at first, but many things will seem to work like that but eventually it will cause issues. Usually fairly quickly. The fried part may be small, like a connector or it could be a larger more exoensive part, unless it is still in warranty, you will either have to take it to a repair shop, and tell them the issue (high/incorrect vaultage leading to a possible fried part) or I hope you have warranty, and send it away. I would never suggest to another to open a camera but....I have fixed many cameras, but unless you are willing to have a go, it can be a bit daunting. I repaired a dvd this way. It turned out to be a fried part worth 30.00 but better than a whole new dvd. Never play with electrical stuff that is connected to anything and make sure not batteries are in!!!!

Try NOT using a driver.

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 Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Go into the menu and find "copy". You will have the option to copy the internal memory to the memory card.

Sounds like the circuitry that controls the charging of the battery has gotten damaged. You can try using regular non-rechargeable batteries if the camera can use them. Otherwise you will have to find another way to charge the batterys, if you can find an external charger for the batteries that should work too. Hope this helps.

Go into the setup section of the camera menu. You will find language options.

No. All Lumix® Digital Cameras have a built-in feature to conserve battery power. After a certain amount of inactivity, the LCD will power down to preserve the battery. Simply hit the SHTR button, and the LCD will turn ON.

Well... If it's telling you that it's write-protected, then you most likely have an SD memory card in the memory card slot.

Take this card out of the memory slot. Inspect the memory card for a small, white tab on the side of the card. Notice that this tab slides up and down. Move it in the opposite direction of it's current position.

Insert the card into the camera, turn it on and see what happens then.

Keep in mind that the camera also has built-in flash memory. If it wasn't the SD memory card, then perhaps there is a setting in the camera's options that was used to write-protect the internal memory as well? (Doubt that's the case with the internal memory, however. Never heard of a camera doing that before.)

I'm sure that checking the mem card and sliding the white tab forward will fix your problem. Let us know.
