Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8 Digital Camera
I can only get into look at previously taken photos. All other functions ask me to turn camera off then on again, is it done for?
Hi, i've an fx8. i had a problem 2 weeks ago. my objective didn't want to close when i switched the camera off. it remained open. when i switched the camera on again, the objetcive has closed and opened again, and the _Turn Off the Camera and Turn On again_ message appeared on the sisplay. and remained in open position after switching it off. i tried some button combination, like menu button on, and power the camera on. it didn't work, but the second was pressing the shotting button, power on combination. an it worked, my camera did some kind of reset. it returned to the original position, and everithing is working since then.

Another common problem. Lens troubles. You have either knocked your lens out of alignment or you have a foreign body jamming up the works in the lens control unit. There have been many so called fixes for these problems but usually end up causing more problems than curing. You could check that you have fully charged new batteries. Some cameras need that extra kick to get them to open the lens fully. Worn out batteries can stop a sticky lens in it's tracks and tell the processor there is a problem and to close down. It's well worth trying before writing it off.
