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

Just not working right

\015 The power goes on and off and the little screen works but none of buttons are working. I bought new batteries and it still isn't working. I can't even reset it. I saw in a previous question you told the person to do a master reset. How do you do that.\015

Answers :

I had the same problem. my fz5 stop responding to input from the rear buttons. If you go to: http://www.instructables.com/id/Repair-Stuck-Lens-on-Panasonic-FZ5/ at step3 you'll see the "rear control ribbon connector" highlighted. As I fiddled,carefully, around the ribbon came lose. It seemed a little to easy so I reconnected it and made sure the tiny black clips (you'll have to look closely) that hold the ribbon in place were properly engaged. Voila problem solved! Just make sure that, unlike me,you try this before you fork out on a new camera.

I have a kodak z8121s and I have been running it with regular aa batteries but it uses them up so fast so I decided to go ahead and spend over $100 to buy the kodak lithium 3.7v rechargable battery klic8000 with a charger and guess what the battery will not work in my camera. I know that the battery is the right battery and I know that the battery works because my daughter has the same camera and it works on hers. so my question is what would cause a brand new battery not work on my camera

I dropped my camera in water, the lense got moisture in it but was working right away. I had opened the inside of the camera to make sure nothing got wet. I set it out to dry. The lense is dry of moisture but the buttons wont work and the camera wants me to input the date. But, since the buttons won't work I can't, and now I can't take picutres.

My Olympus FE-370 has a broken screen, my fault. I bought a replacement off ebay for really cheap and it seems like it would work fine, but I'm having trouble taking the camera apart..A few of the screws, three around the screw-in tripod holder in the base of the camera, two on the right hand side close to the lens, and one right under the USB port, refuse to come out! If someone could help me with just that part, I would probably be able to figure out the rest! Thank you!

My kodak m763 quit working and i was wondering if i took it apart if i could fix it ...it may have gotten too damp in the rain, but the next day it turned on fine for viewing, then the lens would not extend out all the way out or go back in and it would turn itself off.

I just got my camera back from Canon but it still isn't working right! I took it in because when I turned it on it said NO CF CARD. They fixed the metal prongs. Now, it still doesn't work to store or view photos on the camera without a cf card. I inserted my old CF (undamaged card) and formatted it and now it seems to take photos BUT nothing shows on my camera viewfinder when I go to take the photos. It shows I have over 3000 photos on my card but they will not display. Help!
