Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera ?

A lot of dust between the back screen & glass cover

\015 Not sure how the dust managed to get into the space between the screen and the glass cover which sits over it. I can't see a gap where the dust could be getting through and although it doesn't affect the picture quality it's getting quite hard to see the display properly especially in bright conditions.\015

I have a fuji finepixf47. A blurred speck of dust appears both on the photos and on the screen at the back. I have looked at the lens through a microscope and there is dust on the inside of the glass and possibly on the red sensor behind the iris. Any ideas? Cheers Alasdair

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed.

The only way for me to turn the camera off at this point is to remove the battery. Help!

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

My Olympus c-730 just fell on the floor while it was on and landed on the lens. The glass lens and 2 plastic pieces came out and the lens housing is now crooked. It won't retract in or out.

Screen blackness I have the same problem. The lens is NOT stuck - it does deploy and the lens cover opens. I have replaced the batteries, tried a differant memory stick, and I turn it on and off to reboot. None of these solutions work. The camera is only a year or so old - it doesn't get a lot of use so it is not mishandled. Does anybody have any suggestions?
