I have a Lumix DMC-FZ30 which I bought in late 2006. my problem is the LCD screen has gone blank, ( all white). The eye-piece still works, but because of my eyesight it is difficult for me to read the settings etc.The rest of the camera seems to work fine.

    Dear Muhammad,
    I followed the instructions you gave me, but it didn't solve my problem. It seemed to me that your instructions missed a step or two. I downloaded the manual for the camera, but that did not offer any solution to my problem. Can you please try again, befor I request a refund !

    Thank you,

SOURCE: lumix DMC- FZ30 - screen is black when camera is turned on

Hello,
I understand that you've tried all the obvious tricks like resetting to factory settings etc.
Sounds like a CCD/shutter failure I'm afraid. FZ30 are not known for failing CCDs, but I've seen shutters fail on various lumix-es, so in this case I would suggest replacing the shutter. To be precise, replacing the shutter itself is a massive pain in the **** on this camera. It's much easier to replace the whole lens-it contains the shutter. You'll need to get a donor camera (ebay ;) and do the transplant. Swapping the lens is relatively easy if you're ok with midly fiddly things. Oh, and make sure you take notes which screws go where when dismantling the camera - and be careful with ribbon cables for the LCD.
Good luck,
Raf

Hi I have my FZ30 for 5 years and as of now the lcd screen when I turn it to sit flat at the back of the camera goes all fuzzy and white, yet in all the other positions it is okay.


I have exactly the same problem with you. I can tell you for sure that the problem will be and to the other positions! Yet I couldn't find the cause of the problem. If you find it share it with us. Thanks

Lumix DMC- FZ30 - screen is black when camera is turned on


Check if you have activated the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). Press the EVF/LCD button to switch to the LCD screen. If this fails to solve the problem, change the mode dial to Auto (the red camera icon) or 'P' and try again. If even this does not work, check with the nearest authorized service center.

The camera's LCD screen goes black every so often


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.
