Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 Digital Camera ?

Menu, arrow, display, zoom and shutter buttons not working

\015 Menu, arrow, display, delete, zoom and shutter buttons not working. Any ideas? How to factory reset the DMC-FX01? I have tried typrice's suggestion of cleaning battery contacts but this made no difference. On/off, screen and mode dial are working. The lens is working because the object is seen on-screen.\015

Answers :

Before we try anything set the mode to normal take out the memory card and turn the camera on normally. This may get it out of the loop it is stuck in.

There is a reset for this camera if it will respond. Turn the mode switch to playback. Take your memory card out and then turn on and hold the power switch. If this works you should see a menu come up with reset defaults on it. Word of warning here this can also force it into a bios upgrade mode on certain models (not where we want to go) which may permanently disable the camera unless you have the bios on the card for it to load.

Removing the main battery and mem card for a few days won't do anything on this model if I recall correctly. I think it has a second internal battery that keeps the seetings.

My best advice is to contact your local panasonic support number and have them walk you through a reset. Just go to http://www.panasonic.net/support/gscn/ select where you live and you should find a repair or service center. Panasonics support can b hit or miss so you may have to be patient with them.
Hello. You can set your camera back to factory settings by turning it on, going into the menu to reset and resetting everything. IF that solves the problem, wonderful. If not, be advised that opening up the camera yourself will void the warranty. Therefore take your camera to a camera repair shop or send it in to Panasonic. Joe

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

Displays all white in all modes. Kodak V570. Turn the power on and all I can see is white. I have tried a different battery an no battery, just power cord.

Shutter button does not work on SP-500UZ. Zoom in/out works sporadically (sometimes it jitters a little when zooming). It was working fine until last weekend, when it just stopped working. When I press the shutter button it does appear to correctly adjust the focus, but it will not actually take any pictures.


What about the menu switch, manipulate it, see what that does. ... Digital Cameras

The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

Shutter Problem I have an Olympus C-750 that I was in love with until 5 days before my vacation when the shutter button decided to stop working. Zoom in and out still works, but the shutter will not respond to the button or the remote. The other strange symptom is when I turn the camera on, it snaps a picture (and then won't take anymore). Thought I might have managed to put it in a certain mode or hit some magic series of buttons to put it in this strange mode, but I can't undo it. Tried changi

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation.

Wickedwahine Just today, the directional buttons froze up so that the up/down, left/right arrow buttons no longer work to scroll through pictures nor can I use them to navigate menu items. I removed the battery for 1 min as suggested in troubleshooting but it still didn't work. I also tried to press and hold the control and power button (just a guess) trying to trigger a reset. The directional buttons worked very briefly after that but it might just have been a fluke.

I have a Canon Rebel Xt that occasionally has problems with the shutter button suddenly not working. The camera is still on and all the menu buttons continue to work.
