Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12 upsidedown screen

\015 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12. The screen is upside down and black and white. It takes the picture upside down as well, so it's hard to see what i'm taking. I didn't drop it. How do I fix it?\015

Answers :

The issue is due to the data cable getting damaged due to the way of packing it inside the camera casing. The signal carrying traces on the edge of the felxible cable is getting damaged. Once the camera is opened and the cable is repositioned properly/replaced will solve this issue.

This is one of the weirdest lumix problems I've seen ;)

I understand that menu functions display as normal? (i.e. not upside down?)
Do the pictures come out ok or are they black and white too?

In any case, it's not going to be particularly easy to fix. You won't be able to rotate the screen inside the camera as the cables are too short. You might be lucky and as suggested in solution #1 could indeed try to unplug/replug the LCD video signal ribbon cable (there are two - it's the wider one).
Otherwise I would suggest getting a donor camera from e.g. ebay (preferably one with e.g. broken screen or lens fault) and replacing the logic board(s).
Good luck,

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.

Hello - I purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-T265 about a year ago in England. (I recently moved back to the US and all my belongings are in transit somewhere between here and England.) I went up to Mount Evans a few weeks ago, and the viewing screen of the camera just blanked out - the top 1/2 inch of the screen is still present, but the majority of the screen is blank, with a few vertical "lines".
