Lumix DMC-LX3 won't turn off anymore (after pc connection)

\015 I have a problem with my DMC-LX3: when attached to my PC i was only able to download a part of the images(?). then, when i disconnect the camera from the PC, the LCD display remains frozen, and i can\302\264t turn the camera off or on. it is not reacting anymore. i don\302\264t want to take out the battery, in case i damage the memory, but i can\302\264t turn it off..? WHAT TO DO?\015

Answers :

Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function before disconnecting. If it won't turn off by itself, you need to remove the card and then the battery. Press all the buttons and leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery and turn it on. This may work but you may have also have already corrupted the card and possibly the camera. While the card is out, you may want to try to download the pics using a separate card reader.

I've had my Panasonic Lumix DMC LX3 for about just 3 months. It has worked like a charm until today, when suddenly several things have gone whack, as if the calibration died. I just uploaded pix to my computer, but I can't erase them from the camera. The buttons do not respond. When I turn the camera on, it goes immediately to the "Burst Shooting" window, and doesn't respond to the select buttons. It just blinks and beeps on the "Normal" selection. When I try snapping a picture, nothing happens.


My camera problems have been resolved, although I can't attest to how or why. After about six hours, as I prepared to pack off the little guy to the manufacturer, everything had gone back to normal. I'm left only to speculate that maybe the camera ad ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 Digital Camera

I can't transfer my pics from lumix lx3 to pc. When I first connect camera to pc via usb cable, a new drive pops up and I can initially see my pics. Then things lock up and my pc tells me that it can't read from the drive and my camera won't turn off (unless I remove battery). Is this a common problem? The camera and sandisk sdhc 4gb are brand new. I'd rather not need depend on a card reader. Any help?
