Having problems with your Panasonic DMC-TZ5 Digital Camera ?

I have two Panasonic DMC-TZ5 cameras - tried to turn each on this a.m. and they wouldn't turn on -battery is fine in both. In one, when I push the batter in further by hand, it turns on, but not the other. I have heard others have this problem, too. Any ideas?

Answers :


There could be 2 possibilities :-

1. The Connectors are not Clean. So, forcing it might made the Battery to be connected ( though it could be for a small duration ) properly. Try to Clean the Connectors.

2. The Connectors or any of the Contact Point is Loose / Broken. In that Case, the Camera would not be able to Complete the Circuit and Turn ON.

Try to run on AC. If that Works, that would confirm either of the above problems. If not, i bet it would be Circuit Board / Pin Related Problems in Circuit Board.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
\015\012Camera started working when you pushed further because the battery was not properly fitted in the camera or direction of battery might be wrong.\015\012
\015\012Check or try out the following measure in second one:-\015\0121) Clean your battery terminal with soft cloth. (Might be it will filled with dirt or dust )\015\0122) Check whether Memory Card/Battery Cover is properly closed.\015\0123) Load new or fully charged battery. (as battery got died up, need to be replaced)\015\0124) Turn ON the camera, again firmly.\015\012
\015\012If problem still persist then your ON/OFF switch (power button) may be malfunctioning (shorted), So you need to take your camera to Panasonic authorised service centre for service (repair).\015\012
\015\012Good Luck\015\012Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

E18 my canon powershot A150, got the whole E18 problem, it turns on with the blue canon screen, but then two seconds after it turns into a faded black with E18 in the bottom left hand corner. i seriously dont know whats wrong, and it hasnt even been a year since i got the camera, is there any way i can fix this problem? because at the moment buying a camera, my parents would not be too pleased :| it turns on with blue screen then it goes black and it says e18

E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.

Sounds like a loose LCD connector. It does not sound like a image sensory problem to me. You will have to disassemble it , remove the connector cable then replug it back into the panel and that should do the trick. However I suggest that you take th ... Digital Cameras

Hi, I bought the Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD a week back. I have noticed a strange problem with the LCD screen or is it the sensor? In low light situations when you turn the camera on, the screen is not clear and there are disturbances in the form of blue dots across the LCD which appear like a screen refreshing phenomena. The same can be observed in the EVF also. Is there a problem with the sensor of the camera. The best way to notice this problem is by keeping your hand fully in front of the l

Does anyone have instructions for getting at the lens mechanism? I totally understand the risks of doing this myself, but the cost of getting a shop to do this is nearly as much as a new camera! I am sure the problem is caused by sand. The lens at first just went in and out a few time, before the camera turned off. I vacuumed it, then slapped it against the side of my hand whilst turning it on - now it turns on properly with the lens out, but it wont focus - so you can only take blurry photo
