Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC1 Digital Camera
Suddenly one day on firing up - black screen and/or black viewfinder. No input from lens whatsoever. All other functions, including numeric displays etc. all visible as normal, just no picture. Tried removing & charging battery, removing & replacing card, going through all functions etc. Camera only 15 months old. Is this a catastrophic breakdown?
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
