Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50K Digital Camera ?

Why has my DMC-FZ50 given me a message please turn camera off and then on again I also can only take pictures on the LCD and not on the viewfinder, but take pictures without viewing them which I can playback Joan

Answers :

Hi Joan,

this behavior is not normal. I suggest you take it to service. I doubt there is everything ok with it. I own a service manual for my FZ 50, there is nothing like that described. Have it fixed before it dies completely.

I was taking pictures outside using a tripod mounting and had my Fujifilm FinePix S5000 on in photography mode - Auto mode. Upon placing the tripod for a new photo, I observed that the LCD monitor had turned white with intermittent horizontal flashing black lines. The view through the viewfinder is also white but without the black lines. When a photograph is taken the image is white. I should point out that in Playback mode I can view previously taken photographs perfectly on both the moni

LCD White-out I have had this Fuji FinePix A350 since Christmas 2006. This August while on vacation and taking quite a few pictures with a new 1GB XD card, the LCD screen would come on with a blank white screen as the camera was turned on. I continued to take photos using the optical viewfinder to frame my pictures, hoping that it was still working even if I couldn't view them. Fortunately, all the photos did come out fine even though some were totally out of focus (focusing was sometimes a prob

Lcd display not working on nikon d40. When we turn on the camera, and take off the lens cap, the lcd display is black. we can use the viewfinder to take a photo. We can view the image after taking the photo, but can not see the image prior to taking the picture.

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures. The mixture of colours on the LCD only shows when the camera is set on take the picture... and it doesn't even do it always. Thanks.

My Fuji FinePix S5000 has given me years of excelent service. While on break I stored the camera for 2-3 months. When I pulled it out I noticed I had inadvertantly stored it in the "playback" mode. It was of course in 'power save off' mode but when I turned it back on, the viewfinder and LCD monitor are black and it takes black pictures like as though the lense cover was on. Everything else is normal, I am able to view previous pictures saved on the xD card and it shows promptings on the monitor

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose

Please can you advise me? The fault appeared without apparent reason, and is that when you take a photo, thin horizontal black lines appear, and when you transfer to the PC the lines are still there. The lines only appear after you have taken the picture - whilst you are viewing the subject through the viewfinder everything seems just fine. Many thanks for anything light you can throw on this, otherwise very happy with the camera. Tony

No picture I have a FinePix S2 Pro that I have had a couple years. Yesterday when I took pictures with it every picture is black when viewed on the LCD screen. The lens cap is off and I have tried several different lenses and memory cards, adjusted the ISO, tried it with and without a flash, but still the same result. I can view previously recorded pictures, so I know its not the LCD screen. Could the CCD have gone bad? Any thoughts by anyone?
