Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8 Digital Camera ?

Dim screen on DMC FX8 - won't resolve with resets etc.

\015 Like several others here, the screen of my panasonic DMC FX8 is extremely dim - doesn't respond to a reset, to playing with power/economy settings, or adjusting the screen brightness. In very bright, non-glare light, I can just see picture/menus, so I know it's not totally dead.Any ideas what I can do?\015

Answers :

We had same problem with this camera at work - like another poster has commented, we unscrewed the back casing, lifted it and put it together again - lit up again good as new! must be a faulty connection somewhere. Hopefully it's a permanent fix.
The problem on mine is with the stupid little 4-way ribbon cable to the LCD back-light. Where it folds over to turn through a right angle it fatigues and eventually breaks. Damn silly design on an otherwise really good camera!

Anyone know where to source the back-light only? It unclips from the back of the LCD really easily - I just need a new one.

Hi, Touch-screen on the DMC-FX500 has stopped working properly. Sometimes a firm, confident touch will activate a menu button, but generally the touch-screen does not respond.
