Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera

Open Question

Suddenly, my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera stopped focusing (when on auto mode) on the center of the object. Now, it's somehow focusing behind the main subject and the main subject is blurry, while the further distance is clear. I tried factory reset and it did not help. Strangely, the video mode still shoots in focus videos. Any ideas?

SOURCE: lumix DMC- FZ30 - screen is black when camera is turned on

Hello,
I understand that you've tried all the obvious tricks like resetting to factory settings etc.
Sounds like a CCD/shutter failure I'm afraid. FZ30 are not known for failing CCDs, but I've seen shutters fail on various lumix-es, so in this case I would suggest replacing the shutter. To be precise, replacing the shutter itself is a massive pain in the **** on this camera. It's much easier to replace the whole lens-it contains the shutter. You'll need to get a donor camera (ebay ;) and do the transplant. Swapping the lens is relatively easy if you're ok with midly fiddly things. Oh, and make sure you take notes which screws go where when dismantling the camera - and be careful with ribbon cables for the LCD.
Good luck,
Raf

Try checking your settings or menu for a vibration sensor or changing the focus. You might also be using the wrong setting, like indoor, when you're at the beach. You can also change the quality of the pictures and if you are taking still photography or movement.

Lumix DMC- FZ30 - screen is black when camera is turned on


Check if you have activated the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). Press the EVF/LCD button to switch to the LCD screen. If this fails to solve the problem, change the mode dial to Auto (the red camera icon) or 'P' and try again. If even this does not work, check with the nearest authorized service center.
