Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera ?

I took some photos in RAW and cannot open them from the computer.

\015 I downloaded a program from the CD that came with the FZ18, Silky Pix and I was able to open the files, not directly from the card, but through this program, but not convert them to JPEG. Is there any easy way to do this? If I plug the camera or card into the computer the files still say RAW and are not able to be opened, but if I go into the Silky Pis download I can see them there. Thanks for the help.\015

Sony DSC-W70 "File Error", blue screen when viewing pics... Please help. I took many photos last week while in Turkey, and the last ten I cannot view. When attempting to view on the LCD camera screen I get a blue screen with a "File Error" message.

I have a Canon 7D camera. When I put the Compact Flash on my card reader in the computer, it will not open the photos. I have 3 camera cards and only 1 brings up photos. These cards have all been formatted. We shoot in raw. Up until today, they all worked fine. FYI, I go into "my computer" and open up the card from there. What I see is 4 yellow folders. Three of them are "CRW" Files 847 Canon, 848 Canon, 849 Canon. The 4th one says Canon MSC and there are 3 CTG files in it. When I

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
