Having problems with your Panasonic DMC-TZ5 Digital Camera ?

My lens shutter is stuck half closed and will not open and close any further. Is there something I can do to fix this problem?

Answers :

If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.
\015\0121. Check the batteries. (obvious I know).
\015\0122. The camera has been dropped or knocked.
\015\0123. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.
\015\012Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.

I was taking pictures into bright sunlight switching between manual and automatic settings, and manual and automatic focus. First, the picutre would take, but the shutter would not open (viewfinder would remain closed) switching from manual to automatic focus fixed this issue.

My camera (s1075) is not taking any pictures or lettin me view my pictures due to the lens being frozen. it is stuck between open and close state and so will not open when i switch the camera on nor will it close. when switched on the camera shows the samsung screen but nothing else after that (both when i switch camera on and when i try to view my pictures)..is there anyway i can reset the camera or fix the problem manually (considering i cannot see any other screen besides the start up samsung

Sorry, it doesn't sound like a quick fix is going to work here. The lens sounds like it took a pretty good hit and may be misaligned now, which is keeping it from fully retracting. Your best bet is a service center at this point. ... Samsung S1070 Digital Camera

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry

There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

My doughters seemed to drop the camera onto a grass field, while the camera was opened, now the camera cannot be closed properly nor opened. I took out a small straw of grass from the lense, but something seems to be stuck there.
