Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12 Digital Camera ?

Panasonic FX12 Hello, I have a Fx12 and all of a sudden it does not close the lens when you turn it off, it also doesnt allow to take pictures. It displays a message saying... please turn off and on again... we did it but it didnt work Pls help me Thank you


Answers :

Try putting the camera in play mode or print mode and turn on and off until you get an off state with the lense retracted. Next, hold the zoom lever to the left (W) and power on. This worked for my camera. I am not sure the first step is necessary but this is what I did and the camera works fine. I think when I dropped it the lense gear got out of sync.
I have the same problem and tried the solution described here and it worked. I still need to blast the lens with compressed air because I can see that the lens casing is out of calibration. My problem began when I accidentally spilled OJ on the camera. I allowed it to dry out and it worked fine for about a month. Much to my dispair, during my Thailand vacation, the camera decided to completely quite working. I missed a lot of beautiful pictures thanks to a glass of OJ.

Hi there, I have a Canon Powershot S3IS and just lately when you try to turn it on it comes up with a message that says E24. I have looked through the manual and cannot find anything resembling this message. It turns on for a few seconds and then the screen goes black and displays the E24 message. I was taking photos during a recent wedding I attended and then it cut out suddenly and displayed the E24 and since then will not turn on. Please help me as my brother and his family are arriving soon

When I turn on my Lumix DMC-FS3 Camera the lens tries to go out but it does it half way, then it goes in and the action is repeated about three times. Then there is a message on the display that says "Please turn off your camera and then turn it on again". I do that and the process repeats. Thank you.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?
