Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 Digital Camera

Lumix DMC-FX9 won't switch on

I was using this camera perfectly this afternoon. I put it away in the draw and when I tried to use it tonight there was nothing. Absolutely nothing. I've recharged the battery, cleaned the connections, tried releasing every single button and pushing the battery lock, but still, when I flick the on switch there is no reaction, not even a sound inside. If ANYONE has a clue as to what I could do it would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds exactly like what happened to my camera. I still don't know what's wrong with it.

I had the same problem with my Panasonic camera when it was 13 months old, and just out of warranty. They told us that the power board had crashed. I was furious, because I was never offered an option of an extended warranty. Panasonic paid to fix it, but it took them about six months. My family is immensely disappointed, but Panasonic will not answered our phone calls or letters.

I used the camera perfectly just after new years, turned it off, put it away, and as soon as I went to turn it on again, the same problem had occured. Only this time, they're telling me that it's because someone tried to force a USB connection into it, which is practically impossible. Noone in my family is that stupid! So, once again the
the powerboard has melted, and will cost at least $260 to fix..... :(

MITSUBISHI WS55907 Diamond 1080 TV bought in 2000 was powered off, unplugged, for a year. Turned the set on with remote last night and worked fine, had very crisp picture.

Your TV was waiting between 2000 and now to suffer power supply failure. It is very frustrating to go from everything working perfectly to nothing.

Has been running perfectly fine, drove it home this afternoon, parked on the driveway. went to drive it tonight and it won't start, it won't even turn over.

Year make and model might help a bit. Things to check for are starter, alarm, spark, fuel. Does it make any noise while cranking, does it crank. The more info you supply the better the answer

My TV won't turn on. It was fine this afternoon and when I tried to put in on tonight, nothing.

The key here is does the red power light come on? If not follow power cord inside to the fuse that is directly in line with the cord.

If other let me know.

The camera doesn't turn on. I used it, put it away and when I go to use it again, nothing. What could be wrong?

What type of batteries? If Ni-Mh then just recharge them...
Some cameras draw off a little power to keep the internal clock going so maybe the batteries
got discharged.. or if alkaline just try a new set of batteries

Value of my av-1

Almost nothing, even if perfect. I've got three of them all for nothing from FreeCycle.

It's a cut-price, aperture priority only version of the AE-1 program and so is not even popular with collectors unless absolutely mint and with all original accessories.

At most, the body only is worth about £10 on a good day, and absolutely nothing if the batteries are flat as the camera cannot then be shown to be in working order and the battery pack costs around £6. Any lenses with the camera will be worth more, but it all depends upon what they are. Canon FD lenses will not fit the later AF Canons though (except for the obsolete T-Series), so are not as popular as they could be.

Camera lens will not come out all the way, and the screen says to turn camera on and off again. and absolutely nothing happens.

I brought my cybershot 7.2 to the beach, and stupid me did not have it in a proper camera case, and I am sure that a grain or two of sand got into the zoom lens. I used a sewing needle to no avail to try to probe this out, and in the end all I did was use my fingernail to help pull the zoom lens out, when turning the camera on, this worked perfectly after a few try's and the camera is now functioning as good as new.

The grain(s) of sand were obviously preventing the motor from opening the zoom lens.

Hope this helps.
