Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC33 Digital Camera ?

If i turn my camera on it says ''system error''.

\015 I'v tried many things like forcing the lense to open, it worked, but i think it is getting to old for that...i've tried opening the lense then taking out the batteries for 24 hours, it didn't work...please help me with my problem!\015

Answers :

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances\015\012are that your batteries are just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
