Before Christmas, I was in the EasyShare program, looking for a particular picture. I hit one (or 2) keys by mistake--Either/or shift key on right side, the Control key,the one that looks like a window and also one that looks like a printed page. The Easy Share program disappeared so fast, I hardly so it go. Since that time, I have been unable to open it--usually, when you want to remove something, it will ask "are you sure you want to whatever" This did not happen. I finally remember

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 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
