Try a different desk. yes you've done something strange to your settings to get it to totally not work + disable the buttons.

SOURCE: FX8 all button frozen

I am not sure if this is a solution. but one time, i turned on my camera when the battery is really drained. usually (when it was broken) it will automatically zoom in. but that certain period when i turned it on, even before it can zoom in, the battery drained and the camera went off. i charged the battery and when i put it back and turned on the camera, it works fine. it is still working fine. good thing i didnt had the repair center fix it, because they charge really high price.

Rotate the mode dial to the setup mode (screwdriver and wrench) and turn the camera on. Use cursor-left/right to select Set-up2. Use cursor-up/down to select the third item (speech bubble) and press the OK button. Select the desired language and press OK.

    I have a Panasonic DMC-LX2 digital camera, I'm based in the UK. Has worked fine for a couple of years, but 2 weeks ago, when powered up, none of the buttons work. Screen is illuminated, lens emerges OK,...

    I just got identical situation today, and I have no clue at all. However, I figure that the camera is actually working busy like someone is holding the "UP" button continuously. To see this, power on your camera at any mode except the "Scene mode". After it's on, turn the mode select knob to "Scene mode". I saw my camera menu flashing like crazy. When you press any button, the menu should stop running. But once you don't press the button, the menu start running again.
    Please let me know if you have any update.

    Button stuck, casuing unrepsonsiveness in all other buttons

    Most buttons on a camera are a simple raised rubber pad over a printed circuit board. The button gets pressed, a concuctive material on the bottom of the rubber pad puts a short across a printed pad. If the camera senses a short across the down button, it will ignore all other buttons. You need to take the back off the camera and the rubber button pad will probably be right in the back, clean the contact with an alcohol Qtip and you should be OK.

    Buttons on camera won't work.

    I finally got the menu button to work by firmly pressing downward on the mode dial while turning it. Once the menu opened, I went to set-up and initialized all settings. This action reset all the settings to default and now all of the buttons are working.

    1. Mode Dial not working, "Take-Picture-Button" not working.

    If the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like mode dial and shutter button will not work.

    But you could still try these steps below:

    First, do the POWER RESET:
    - Turn off camera
    - Remove batteries for a minute
    - Reload batteries
    - Turn on camera

    Second, do the MASTER RESET
    - Press on MENU button
    - Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
    - Scroll down until you see RESET
    - Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
    - Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved - Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

    Third, if it still does the same thing, then your camera needs to be repaired by a technician.

    If you want to know where you could send it, just call the hotline of the manufacturer of your product so you could get assistance
    about this matter.

    Yes you definitely can,

    Turn on the camera.

    2. Press the button for longer than 5
    seconds.

    LCD monitor.

    Camera Frozen

    Hi,

    I tried Option No.1 successfully when my Panasonic DMC-FZ7K froze once:

    Option No1:


    1. Try turning the camera on with the battery inserted.

    2. Now remove the battery while the camera is on.

    3. Flip the switch on the camera to off, then insert a fully charged battery. (Make sure that the battery's orientation is correct. Also make sure that the battery being used is not damaged).

    4. Now flip the camera's switch to ON again.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Option No. 2:


    If you can open the Setup menu then the camera can be reset which might help:

    Turn on the camera.

    1. Press MENU SET.

    2. Press the left arrow button.

    3. Press the down arrow button.

    4. Press the right arrow button.

    5. Now, press the up arrow button several times until the menu item named RESET is highlighted. Push the right arrow button and then select and set YES when the camera asks to be reset.
