Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 Mode Dial stuck

Hey everyone. My girlfriends camera's mode dial is broken. It will not go any further than simple shot and the click that is normally felt between modes is no longer there. I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix it without going to a repair shop as I can't find any around where I live that will take panasonic and it's too damn expensive to send it back to fix (warranty expired). If anyone has detailed instructions on how to take apart the camera and fix that mode dial it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Sony camera problems

You must have put the mode dial on 'SCN' and selected an in-built effect. Set the camera to another mode (iAuto, Auto, P, S, A, M) and it should work well.

I want to make a video but I'm not sure what buttons to press or how to do it.


For capturing movies in the Camera, turn the mode dial of the Camera to the Movie position. Click here to open the handbook Manual of the Camera. Refer to page # 18 of the manual for the information on selecting the movie mode for shooting movies using the mode dial.

Thanks for using FixYa.

The LCD-screen seems to work normal. But when we take a picture (camera-mode normal and record-mode normal) the result is overlighted and misty and full of horizontal lines. In video mode the camera works...

Try to use a different setting like a bright light setting to see if the apeture is closed down further and brings back focus.
the problem is the auto focus which can be going stray and is not setting right.So take time to shoot with the shutter button down to half to allow it to focus and then once the indication of the focus has confirmed to click.
If not contact Sony service for help.

Have you tried turning off your active D-lighting? Also try turning the knob to Program mode "P" on the dial, take a few shots, then go back to auto and try it again. If you have further details, it would be useful...

Dsc h5 horizontal (underexposed) lines

the apparture system of the camera stucks to fully open, due to the impact if you happen to drop the camera. if you open the shutter and the diaphram assembly, and try to move the apparture blade manualy. it should move swiftly from one end to other with a ****. 1) sometime the motor moving this blade gets disallign or some fine sand or dust or sometimes even one finds something liquid sticking the movement of the blade. just opening and cleaning the mechanism solves the problem. 2) in some cases the flexible ribbon cable carrying signal to the assembly gets broken. replacement of the same solves the problem.

I hope you fix your camera successfully.

No picture.

Hey qui-qui,
I would make sure you have the camera set to playback mode by setting the mode dial on top of the camera to the symbol that looks like a triangle inside of a rectangle. If this doesn't work the problem is most likely that your memory card has been formatted and there are no images on your memory card. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Canon Powershot S5IS Aperture

Hey Kate
I have owned a Canon Powershot S5 since launch last year and I take a lot of photos with blurred background. I select AV on the dial (Aperture priority) and set aperture to between 2.7 and about 4.0 max, depending on how much depth of field I want and what my subject is.

This setting blurs the background beautifully.. Just remember that an aperture of 2.7 will give you a very shallow depth-of-field, so if focus on face is important, make sure you have face recognition set to ON.

I hope this helps

Sony DSC-W70 How do I use black and white colour option??

I found out how to do this at last, you turn the dial to P instead of auto, then when in picture taking mode instead of playback you click menu, B&W is one of the options that comes up first! So simple but it took me ages to find!!
