Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ5 Managed to switch camera off while it was still attached to computer. Result- nothing works.


Answers :

Try removing the batteries and MMC card for a few minutes and put it back in. Of course, you will have to disconnect from PC first.

If that still does not work, try on a different PC. If it works there, it could indicate a fault in your PC' USB ports.

Should you still have difficulties, it could be that your camera firmware is corrupt and you may need to get it flashed again. You'll have to take this this to a Panasonic approved service center.
You can find the nearest center HERE.

Hope that helps!

I've had my Panasonic Lumix DMC LX3 for about just 3 months. It has worked like a charm until today, when suddenly several things have gone whack, as if the calibration died. I just uploaded pix to my computer, but I can't erase them from the camera. The buttons do not respond. When I turn the camera on, it goes immediately to the "Burst Shooting" window, and doesn't respond to the select buttons. It just blinks and beeps on the "Normal" selection. When I try snapping a picture, nothing happens.


My camera problems have been resolved, although I can't attest to how or why. After about six hours, as I prepared to pack off the little guy to the manufacturer, everything had gone back to normal. I'm left only to speculate that maybe the camera ad ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 Digital Camera
