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

My Lumix DMC-FX8 shows me the message turn off then turn back on again for some reason my flash stopped working completly. and randomly it tell me to "please turn off, then turn back on" i tried everything. HELP I'm having a similar problem with my Lumix DMC-FX01. Movie taking won't work either. I don't if the camera might have gotten some moisture in it or what. Any suggestions?


Answers :

I had this problem on the weekend! I fixed it with a more archaic method. When it says turn the camera off and then on again, the lens is stuck out. It only goes back in when I turned the camera off and then on for a brief second, and then pops out again. I held the lens in with my fingers when I turned it back on. The camera tries to open the lens 3 times and then gives up. I then turned the camera off whilst the lens was closed. Left it for a few seconds and turned it back on. Voila!!!
If the message persists, take the camera to the nearest sevice center.

A classic one... so it seems, but I could not find an answer here or elsewhere. My Lumix DMC-FP1 normally can be turned on by either opening the lens cover or by pushing the 'ON' button.

My camera, a nikon d70s, wont turn on and work. ive taken the battery out and out it back in, still wont work. i then tried 2 charge the battery but still wont work. i then tried to re-set it but it still wont work.

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera.

I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.
