Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 Digital Camera ?

How to disassemble the camera? I have unscrewed all the visible screws, but still cannot take off the back cover. It seems to be still fixed near the external flash plug. In the LX2 section there is a guide, but it starts with the words "remove the back cover". Are there any differences in the way how LX2 and LX3 are assembled?


Answers :

Plastic parts are snapped together, you can snap them apart by opening the battery cover and apply finger pressure to open the case.

My camera doesn't turn on at all. I took it out of its cover today and I first thought it was a battery problem so I recharge my battery but it still doesn't turn on at all. I tried to connect it to my computer, hoping that it will do something but still nothing. Strangely enough, the lens is on and I don't want to use force to put it back inside, afraid that it might damage the camera even more.Should I send it for repair? and if yes, where is the best place to do it? thanks in advance

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res

The cover on the battery and SD card opening on the camera broke off and couldn't be found on the ground. A small piece of cover and the hinge are still on the camera. When the camera is turned on a message 'card cover open' comes on screen and though I made a temporary cover with a thin piece of wooden pop stick and another with some stiff card and taped them on the camera still came up with same message. Can I get a new cover/door or what can I do??

The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?

Grinding noise I had my cd500 fixed in November. The little piece that holds the cd in came off. They fixed that, but then when I got it back I was still getting format errors. They gave it back and told me to only use mavica discs. And since then that is what I've been doing. However I am still hearing a loud grinding noise when the picture is being burned. Do you know what it is? I am wondering if I need to take it back in.

I have a Sony DSC-S950 Cyber-shot. I opened some pictures in the computer using PhotoShop to view and rotate pictures. After I rotate pictures and I resaved them back to the memory stick card, I can't view them on the camera. I only see a blue screen with File error on it. However, I still can see and reopen these pictures through the computer. Can I still print these pictures from the memory card? How can I restore back these picture files? I want to view them on my camera. Please help.
