Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera ?

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ30 - LCD white screen.

\015 I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ30. The camera is about two years old and has worked fine up until today. It has not been dropped or mistreated. The LCD is all of a sudden white in every mode with lines running through it. I am still able to take and view photographs using the viewfinder. Could someone please give me an idea on what has gone wrong here, and what to do about it.Cheers.\015

Firstly, use the following information at your own risk, I am simply providing my own findings for informational purposes. It may or may not be the solution to your problem. If you want a professional opinion, go to a camera repair specialist...

I have had the exact same problem. The screen on my Panasonic DMC-FZ30 started to go white with lines through it in certain positions, and then in all positions. Finally it went black.

I took my camera apart to try and find the source of the issue with my screen (by the way if you want to take your dmc-fz30 apart, there is a fantastic service manual download for free at: http://www.nemodus.info/fz30/docs/DMC-FZ30_DSC0508016CE_v1.pdf or if that does not work try http://elektrotanya.com/panasonic_dmc-fz30.pdf/download.html ).

I believe the issue stems from the contacts of the rotating screen. I would hazard a guess that somewhere along the flexi-cable there is some wear which has caused this to occur...
I have not yet solved the problem, however I do have two potential solutions.

1. I found a site where you can buy a replacement flexi-cable for the camera. The site is (http://g-plushk.com/product_info.php?cPath=53_56&products_id=653). The cable costs approx $12 (not sure which currency, it doesn't say).
The issue with this solution, after taking apart my camera, I could find no way to remove the cable completely from the swivel joint at the base of the screen. So you would probably have to buy the part and take it to a professional. (probably check first whether it is even possible to replace, I assume it is, as they sell the part...just my guess).

2. The second solution (easier in my opinion, but a bit more expensive I'm guessing). You can buy a replacement screen for the camera. Contact Panasonic for your closest spare parts distributor. I do not know the price for a replacement screen, but I would estimate that it is between $30 to $50 AUD. I would then install the part myself as it is fairly easy if you follow the service manual. However if you would prefer not to do it yourself, I would seek the help of a camera specialist to replace it...

By the way, just to put a repair in perspective. You can PROBABLY (not definitely) buy a second hand 'Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30' for somewhere between $80 to $120 AUD...

Hope that helps

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate?

My camera is 2 months old.

The screen for my panasonic lumix dmc fs15 appears to be broken. I've only had it for six months! The display is now White with a small dark patch to one side, and diagonal lines across the screen. I was out hiking , and it was in my pocket. I don't recall it getting bashed but I guess that's what mustve happened! Is it worthwhile getting it fixed? Should I just buy a new one? How long would it take if I sent it away to get fixed?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Image 'melts' into streaky vertical lines when camera is turned on.

I confiscated the camera, turned it off and it sat unused for about 3 days. When it was next turned on, the image on the LCD screen was
