Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

I assume you can view them in you camera, right? If not, the following solution will not help.

The .MOV Apple QuickTime format Panasonic uses for its camera movie clips cause problem on with viewing, as seen from several other problem posts here and the net.

Some computer use a Win 32Bit operating system, other better ones use a Win 64. It is hard to believe QuickTime would let you load a 64bit version into a 32bit OS, or vice versa. But who knows. Rather double clicking on te file name itself, open QuickTime, then go to File Open and Browse to the file and select it that was. If this doesn't work, go to QuickTime website and try their User Forums first to ask a question or find a thread talking about movie files not playing. Else, CONTACT website and ask question. Post any solution here for readers.

Lens covers are delicate things. A bit of dust or dirt inside and the the springs can't do their job. When cleaning doesn't work, to repair this I remove the lens cover and shorten the springs by cutting off a bit and then reattaching them. A small bit of mollyd to lubricate helps too. never use oil or silicone.

the LCD screen may be faulty, or the connecting strip loose or corrosion on it, clean, if necessary change.

The camera is probably damaged, this also happend to my DMC-TZ5 as well after a few (5-6) years of heavy use but without any visible damage, a repair is most likely more expensive than just buying one of the new lumix cameras which have also improved A LOT, so you wont be disappointed!

Not really possible with most cameras. Set the ISO to the highest setting and turn off the flash. This is the best you can do. Professional cameras that can shoot at ISO 3200-5200 are about the only cameras that can take that type of shot. Most pocket cameras do not have ISO above 1000.

Good luck!

I have the same problem. When I try to charge a battery the green LED onthe charger flashes green and the battery does not charge. Any ideas?

This usually happens only when the camera is too cold for the CMOS to function properly. Try carrying the camera in an inside pocket until ready to take a photo. This has been my experience. I have no experience with this color change in any other situation.

Take any media card out of the camera. Connect the camera tot he computer via camera USB cord. Transfer photos from internal memory that is now accessible because no other media is present. Delete after transfer if you wish.

I found a manual for your camera here:
and the procedure for transferring photos from the internal memory is on page 72-3. If you save the manual to your computer (its pdf format) you will be able to use it for future reference as you can enlarge it on screen for comfortable reading. I find most camera printed manuals have print that is too small to read comfortably.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

In the manual, (still online) you can read on page 19 :
So how to use the menu is on page 20 and what languages you can chose of, are on page 27.

Instead of using the card to transfer to computer, transfer with a USB cord and open the file it's in. Cut and paste to your computer's folder.
