Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera

3 Answers

Pictures overexposed in daylight, visible lines in photos

I'm getting these kind of washed-out shots with visible horizontal lines in my outdoor shots.  Movies and indoor photos don't seem to be affected.  Camera worked fine for a couple of months, then stopped.  Was not dropped or otherwise mistreated.
Ideas?  Any help would be great...hate to a buy a new one, and Panasonic servicing would equal the cost of the camera!

    I've tried all combinations of settings, plus resetting to factory defaults...certain combinations mitigate the problem better than others.




    Anything outdoors or bright washes the color out, and produces lines in the picture...

Same problems with my Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5. Has worked fine for months then started shooting totally white outdoor photos but still shoots available light indoors just fine. Video works fine also. Saw on another site where it's likely to be a sensor problem which means this camera will have to be used for video only or thrown away and replaced by a Canon (probably the best option)

My outdoor shots always seem washed out with blueish tones. How do I fix this?


Appears that the f stop on your camera is not working properly with the result that your outdoor shots are overexposed. Could be the f stop motor, the photo cell reading lite level, etc. Definitely a job for a pro.

Might cost a fortune to repair so might be advisable to cut losses and get new camera since parts and labor on those devices are costly.

CASIO EXILIM digital camera photo resolution


The Digimax A7 Doesn't work outdoors, because on top of the camera, try taking a picture, but hold your hand on the top of your camera (Cover it) it's light sensitive. On top their is a built in sensor, the Darker it is the darker the picture is, the lighter, the lighter. If you cover it, (Usually on top) It should work fine outdoor, just don' t cover it indoor. Hope this helped. -CA

the ribbon wire connecting to your (internal) camera lens is broke and needs ribbon wire replacement, that's the reason why you're getting an over exposed on outdoor shots, sometimes indoor shots too depending on the indoor lightings, you need to look for a competent digicam (service center) technicians.

Had the camera for 13 months. I suspect the light meter is busted. Photos indoors are OK, outdoors or in strong light are over exposed with horizontal lines through the photo. Quoted $160 to repair with...


Just put some part of a finger or two over the lens to cut down the light outdoors. Your shutter diaphrame is not working, but keep on using the camera, it might free up.

I have canon power shot A85. When I shoot a photo horizontal lines appear on the screen, when loaded to PC, same lines are loaded with the image not visible . Plus its lens keep getting stuck while opening...


That is a widespread problem with your camera regarding that model. This is caused by a CCD problem when a camera reached an x amount of total shots. You might notice that this does not affect when you try to record a video. Good thing, some manufacturer acknowledges this factory error and are willing to do the repair for free.

Here are some illustration regarding this problem:

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics


It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.
