Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera Problem


\015 Recently my FZ5 has begun to ignore all inputs from buttons. When I turn it on, I am able to operate in whatever mode it is in once. So I can take 1 picture, or one video. So I guess you could say I am able to hit the "take a picture" button once. Once I take the picture or video, I must turn the camera off and back on again to take another picture or video.I disassembled the camera, removed the tiny battery that keeps the settings, and waited over night. I reassembled the camera and it still only allows me to take one picture. Now it also says I need to set the clock.\015

Answers :

Possibly the shutter release (the "take a picture button") or the mechanism under it is getting stuck down and not coming back up to let you take a second shot.

Try cleaning under there with a can of compressed air. Be careful because the release button is super fragile - looks big but only held on underneath by a tiny stalk about the size of a pin (I know because mine broke off when the camera dropped). Panasonics are light but fragile, others, like Sony, heavier but much more solid.

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? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

I have a Panasonic Lumix digital camera model DMC-TZ3. It fell into a toilet 8 months ago. I know gross. Fell when the water was still clean.Camera seemed dead. Found it in my garage the other day and stuck the battery in it and it came to life and takes pictures. Problem is that the inside of the lens needs to be cleaned as the water dried inside and left it smudged. Camera shop wants $161.00 to clean it.
