Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 focus problem

\015 I have a problem with an aged and well used fx100. when turned on the lens goes out and in and out again and then it (sometimes) works in normal or macro mode. Often though it won't focus on certain modes but when you scroll it around to another mode it does work. I initially thought that the problem was hardware as I have read of other focus issues where the lens goes in and out a few times - but the point with mine is that it does work on some modes all the time but the modes it works with vary. Question is, is there there somewhere where I can download some new firmware?\015

Hi--I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FP8, which I bought in May 2010. The camera is great for outdoor landscapes, etc. but I've had problems with low lighting and red eye. The camera has trouble focusing on the subjects, and there are often white spots all over the picture (even though I've cleaned the lens and checked to see if there were scratches or dirt on it). In addition to this, I have the red eye setting on, but I still get really awful red eye in all of my pictures. The camera is still new

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.

My Panasonic DMC-FH1 stopped working after less than a month of use. It has been treated with care, not dropped or thrown about. It powers up, the lens automatically extends, but it cannot focus. After about 10 seconds the display reads: SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). I have tried recharging the battery, and leaving the camera powered down for an extended period. The owner's manual does not reference this problem. Any thoughts? Thanks you, Brian

My panasonic DMC ZS3 camera purchased on 12/14/09 has started showing vertical multicolored stripes on the viewing screen in all modes. The pictures captured by the camera do not display the same vertical stripes, which seems to indicate it is a problem that only affects the focusing screen. These stripes take up about 2/3 of the right side of the viewing screen. Do you know what might be affecting the problem? In addition the camera has never been dropped or mishandled in any way.
