Hello - I purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-T265 about a year ago in England. (I recently moved back to the US and all my belongings are in transit somewhere between here and England.) I went up to Mount Evans a few weeks ago, and the viewing screen of the camera just blanked out - the top 1/2 inch of the screen is still present, but the majority of the screen is blank, with a few vertical "lines". Can you tell me how I can get help repairing it? Is there anything I can do to trouble shoot it?

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1 Problem: Camera is not saving photos Hi, my camera started responding very slugglishly yesterday. I took a few pictures, and some of them wouldn't save.

I formatted the card and the camera recognises it, but it's still not saving photos. When I try to view the photo I've just taken, the screen goes blank

Are you formatting the card in the camera as you're supposed to? Have you tried going into the menu and finding "reset" and followed the on-screen instructions?

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?
