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

SCREEN AND VIEW FINDER BLANK

\015 My screen and view finder are blank\015\012\015\012I bought my camera (Panasonic Lumix FZ50 digital) in South Africa last December and it worked fine for one week. Then sometimes when I turned on the LCD/viewfinder was blank. After a few seconds it was ok, working normally. When I came back from vacation, after copying the pictures to CD I never used the camera again. And now I have already turned on the camera several times and the LCD/viewfinder is always blank. I can't take pictures and can't see the pictures I took (and did't erase). Please, help!\015

Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.
