Having problems with your Panasonic DMC-TZ5 Digital Camera ?

The LCD on my DMC-TZ5 looks like someone ran the image through one of those turn-your-picture-into-a-cartoon filters. The problem is present in both record and review modes (and menus too), both for still pictures and video. It does not affect the actual pics/video once downloaded to the computer; it's just a problem with the LCD display. It developed this problem after I took it to a repair shop to fix a stuck lens shutter/cover thingy. Before I take it back and accuse them of screwing somet

Answers :


As you mentioned that once you downloaded the pictures to computer it was fine, that confirms that CCD sensor is fine. Moreover, as you could not see the saved image / picture properly confirms that this is a problem with LCD. Unfortunately, repair is never recommended as the cost to replace LCD panel and the time would worth more than the cost of the camera. I wish i could have a better solution.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

LCD does not display photo but shows settings, menu etc. Downloaded "images" show as black on computer screen but photo data is available as if the photo had actually been taken. Flash works and shutter sound effect works. Have read that there is a potential latent defect that gives rise to this problem.

This is a known manufacturing defect and Canon will fix it for free. Look for the notice and instructions on the Canon website. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.

Sir/madam,please do contact Panasonic with your complaint, this is the only way we are ever going to get this problem resolvedthanks ... Digital Cameras

Lens assembly The lens assembly has become loose. One of the outer rings has actually detatched from the camera body.When switching on - either the message 'lens fault' is displayed or a very blurred image is displayed in the LCD. The camera shop reckons the problem is quite common and estimates $A200 to fix ie replace lens assembly. Any similar experiences? (Of course, the camera is 3 months out of warranty).

Can you please, please help, my beloved Canon Power Shot A75 (purchased in 2005 in France) has developed a LCD display problem when turned on. A few months ago the screen distorted with lines and now the screen is totally black. I am asking you for help as I had no luck to find anyone here in France to give me any help or support. Thank you. Looking forward hearing from you. Best wishes

This is most likely a CCD problem that is being repaired free by Canon. I don't know where the French repair center is but you might find it on the internet. For more details about the free repair, go here: ... Canon Digital Cameras

My IXUS V2 has suddenly developed a serious fault. When I switch on, the digital display shows a confusing array of lines and colours, with the actual picture barely discernable. If I take a picture, it comes out as a confused image of colours and lines. The view through the optical viewfinder is fine so I imagine I have a serious electronic problem. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.

Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor

Lens Problem I just bought an Olympus C-8080. While switching the camera on there are some 4 to 5 light pixels on the display (lcd monitor on the back of the camera), even when directing the camera into the dark. It is not really a problem now, but do you also have this problem with your LCD monitor? What if they become more?

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

Fiji Finepix F401 - I have had great success with the above camera but it has suddenly developed what I think is a sensor problem. The viewfinder displays a badly blurred and distorted picture which is green and purple in colour. The camera will no longer take any still or video pictures. To make matters worse, I recommended this particular camera to my father and his has now developed the same problem. Both cameras are out of guarantee.
