This happened to me today. The lens drive sounded weird - like off gear. Then it froze and wouldn't turn off without taking out the batteries. Then, it would turn on. Now it's ok. What I did was remove the cf card, lens, regular battery, and the little battery that is also in the battery compartment. I let it all sit while I did other things. When I put it all back together it turned on and I had to set the date but everything worked fine.

Look for a small pinhole (possibly under the camera) and insert a pin with batts inserted to reset the camera

Laptop black screen

You turned on your laptop and horrors upon horrors, the screen is BLACK! You see that the laptop has power but besides that nothing is happening.
I want you to know that there is a very good chance you can get out of this situation quickly and without any cost. This fix works on all brands of laptops:


• 1) TAKE OUT YOUR LAPTOP BATTERY
• 2) REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it.
• 3) NOW HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS
That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen.
After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up.
Replace your battery.
or if wont start
Here are the fix steps:
1. Turn off your computer
2. Disconnect every wire from it (including power)
3. Disconnect the battery from the bottom of the computer.
There will be two tabs labeled 1 and 2.
4. Re-plug in the power wire. (the battery should not be in the computer)
5. Turn on the power. The screen will work. Choose start windows normally. (if you get that screen)
6. Go to Control Panel -> (Mobile PC) -> Power Options -> Under Balanced choose change plan settings
7. Choose Change advanced power settings
8. Find Processor power management and change the minimum processor state from 5% to 100% for each On battery and Plugged in.
9. Click Apply then OK
10. Shut down you computer.
11. Disconnect the power cord.
12. Re-install the battery on the bottom of the laptop, plug in the power cord, and restart the computer.

My camera wont turn on.

This problem occurs when your camera has weak batteries or the wall outlet is not working. Try to change your batteries or just try another wall outlet for adapter/charger. Also, make sure that the battery is inserted properly.

You could also follow these steps:

Check batteries -> Connect camera to an AC adapter -> Remove all batteries -> Disconnect AC adapter -> Wait 2-3 minutes -> Reinsert batteries -> Reconnect adapter -> Turn on your camera.

I hope it works! Give it a try. If it won't work, contact the firm that produces your model of camera.

Am not able to download the fotos to my mac. the camera shuts of.. by saying the camera was disconnected ???????

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

I have just downloaded the camera on to iphoto and have cleared the camera memory . I clicked the eject icon on iphoto and once cleared unplugged the USB download cable . I have just pushed the power...

Sounds like you did two things wrong...you deleted/erased/or formatted the camera using the computer. You disconnected the camera without using the "safely remove hardware" function.

Lumix DMC-LX3 won´t turn off anymore (after pc connection)

Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function before disconnecting. If it won't turn off by itself, you need to remove the card and then the battery. Press all the buttons and leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery and turn it on. This may work but you may have also have already corrupted the card and possibly the camera. While the card is out, you may want to try to download the pics using a separate card reader.

Can't download large movie files to iphoto : (

i found the answer to my own question above and thought i'd share.

rather than iphoto, you can use "image capture," which is software that comes standard with the mac.

-Turn on your camera, and connect it to your computer with the cable that came with it.
-Close iPhoto if it opens automatically. Open Image Capture (Applications folder).
-Click Download Some to choose specific items to transfer, or click Download All to transfer all items.
If you click Download Some, choose the items to transfer, and click Download.

By default, Image Capture transfers still images to your Pictures folder, video files to your Movies folder, and music files to your Music folder. To choose another folder, choose Other from the Download To pop-up menu, then click Download Some or Download All.

Video Format

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.

Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.
