Black dot on Lumix Fz18 screen

\015 Hi, recently I notice there is a black blob appearing on pictures taken with my Fz 18, do you have any idea how to remove it? Thanks\015

Answers :

It is either a faulty pixel in the CCD or a piece of grit in the lens. has it moved at all.
If it moves it's a piece of grit.

Will require servicing, they can either remove the grit or remap the pixels in the CCD.

My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.

The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera
