Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera ?

I dropped my FZ28 (about 3 feet onto a wood floor) but it seems fine (despite it totally stressing me out!). Is there anything particularly I should look out for? Any suggestions? I'm sincerely hoping that all will be ok...! Thanks

Answers :

Is the floor damaged? When I did this the result was an inoperable lens motor although all the buttons and electronics and glass survived.

The main thing would be to check if your lens is alright(no crack) if your picture quality is still the same and if all the buttons are working (zoom, menu etc). If all these are alright keep snapping those photos.

Canon SD600 I used my camera to take pictures of fireworks and I noticed that afterwards, all the photos I was taking outside in daylight were turning white. If I take pictures in the dark, they turn out perfect, and low light pictures are fairly normal except anywhere where there is a light source (lamp, window, etc) the color is streaky and orange. This particular camera has no way to adjust the aperture settings and I am considering taking it to a shop to have it looked at. Is there anything

It sounds like you may be in a low light mode. Put the camera in record mode, and then press the set button (in the middle of the up down left right keys). You probably want the camera to be in automatic mode (or A). If this doesn't solve the prob ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

Blurry Images Hi, I have a coolpix 5700 and sometimes when I take pictures with it and later go look at them on the camera's display they start out blurry and then "snap" into focus. However, when I later load them on my computer, they remain blurry. I can't find anything in the manual describing this phenomenan but it really annoys me because the pictures look so good on the camera, but I can't get that quality on my print outs or monitor display. Does anyone know anything about this? I'd like

The camera display is a two-stage progressive display. The image is roughed out, then the interleaving lines are filled in. This has no effect on the image itself, just the monitor display.\015\012\015\012Apart from the media, digital photography is ... Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Before Christmas, I was in the EasyShare program, looking for a particular picture. I hit one (or 2) keys by mistake--Either/or shift key on right side, the Control key,the one that looks like a window and also one that looks like a printed page. The Easy Share program disappeared so fast, I hardly so it go. Since that time, I have been unable to open it--usually, when you want to remove something, it will ask "are you sure you want to whatever" This did not happen. I finally remember

I haven't delt with the Easyshare program in a few years, but it sounds like it got corrupted, as you believe. There should be a folder in the Easyshare program or in My Picures in the computer where the pictures are stored. Go in and look around ... Kodak EasyShare C340 Digital Camera

Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thanks

My Coolpix S630's on/off switch on top of the camera is stuck in the down position, so I cannot operate anything on the li'l D80 back-up. I love the li'l bugger and hope the problem can be remedied. I will admit to having a case of the dropsies, but in the last episode, the leather case was on the camera (it helps a bit, I'm hoping).

Stuck buttons seem to be a common problem for Coolpix models. They're typically an easy fix most of the time if you can get the button unjammed. Sometimes the rubber piece inside the button slips and it causes the button to jam. If you're feeling gut ... Nikon COOLPIX S630 Digital Camera

I have spots on all of my photos. It's particularly noticable when taking photos with a solid background, particularly anything with sky involved. I've tried cleaning the lens and taken the lens off to clean the mirrors but there is no difference. Any ideas?

Never, never touch the mirror!!!. You have dust on your sensor. Google the words "how to clean a DSLR sensor" and you will find sites which explain the procedure and places to get the supplies needed. ... Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera with 17-85mm Lens

When I turn my camera on I only see a dark blue and black image with white lines running through it--could I have damaged something or have I messed up my settings? I can look at previous pictures taken, they look fine, I just can't figure out why I can't see anything through the view finder or LCD monitor in order to take new pics. i have been reading through the manual, tried new batteries (regular AA)--any suggestions?

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Hi!! I inherited a Konica Dynax Maxxum 5D it takes great pictures, but I can't figure out how to get the LCD monitor to show the picture I am taking...it is on a blue screen with functions and settings, but I can't find where in those settings to change it back to seeing the view by looking at the screen, I always have to look through the view finder to shoot a pic. Hope you can help, Thanks a lot, Cath

To see the picture you want to take on the screen, your camera needs to have a feature called "live view". I'm not sure if your camera has that feature. It's a relatively new feature on more expensive cameras. Check your owner's manual. ... Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Digital Camera

How do I clean specs of dust from an olympus OM10 camera? I have an OM10 that has not been used for many years. My kid is hoping to use it in a college class she has next semester but I noticed it has specs of dust/dirt when I look through the viewfinder. How do I clean this. The price to service this camera is about 150.00 and a couple of weeks. I am not sure the camera is worth it, so I am looking to see if their is a DIY solution. Thanks

Well, you're right, not worth 150. Unless you have the plug in manual speed adapter for that camera, it's not really suitable for classroom work. The good news is that the specks you see in the viewfinder will not appear on any pictures taken with ... Digital Cameras

Lost pics I had over 400 pics on a 512 card and some video. Was looking at them one night on the "quick view" menu. Took more pics the next day no probs. Later same day, put memory card in tower to look at on pc and it said folder was empty. So put card back in camera and no pics! I have not formatted or erased anything but pics have disappeared.

I think your card is corrupted if it is corrupted it is not possible to get back the photos so you need to buy another card for your camera ....but have a try from the given link to recover the photos \015\012 ... Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

Button-be-dead Ok, so this might sound kind of stupid but my camera was in my purse and I didn't drop it or anything, but when I went to take it out to take pictures, the button you push to take the picture was already half down so it won't stop auto-focusing. I can't zoom in or out, look through my pictures, turn the flash off, delete pictures, or change picture styles. I know it's because of the button already being down halfway but I really need to know how to fix it and get the button back

There is no sound on the clips because the camera does not have a speaker, if/when you transfer the video to the PC you will hear sound ... Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera
