Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Panasonic DMC-FX33 has operated perfectly for 3 + years. Suddenly, when turning on, camera displays message "Please turn camera off and then on again". Lens cluster 'twitches' but does not extend out. Battery is fully charged; camera has not been dropped, jarred, etc.

Hello. If you suspect this is a lens problem ,I agree. I've had good results tapping the camera into the palm of my hand while its trying to open. Also try conecting your transfer cable to the camera and then press the power button, this keeps the viewing screen turned off sending full power to the lens mechanism. Lastly,and I should have mentioned it first,If you have a piece of exposed photo film,cut a small strip and work it in the gaps between the lens barrels to try to remove anything which may be stuck in there

The DMC-FX33 doesn't take pictures except sometimes on iA mode


In most cases, the camera is beyond economic repair. If the camera is a few years old, buying a newer one is a better option. I'm seeing brand name 10 MP models NEW for $60. you might check online auction sites for used ones. I've picked up 5 MP ones for $5.

Message saying 'Please turn camera off and then on again' Have charged battery, replaced memory card.


The message appears when force has been applied to the lens. You probably need service.

Panasonic DMC-FX35 error message


Sounds as if it has either received a knock, or foreign matter (grit etc) has got into the lens mechanism.

Camera opens and closes repeatedly and then says please turn camera off and then on again and then does the same thing over again.


you should have dropped your camera down to the floor causing the lens assembly to crack. try tapping the device while the message appears. if it works then you are lucky.else you might have to change your lens assembly which costed 60$ for me in my sony camera

CAMERA UNIT IS PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-FX33 MENU


It may be that for the type of picture you are taking the mode - dial at the top of the camera is not compatible.

Try a couple of different modes by adjusting the dial to auto, etc.
