Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera ?

Lens won't go in, seems to be zooming in and out, then a message appears on screen, "Please turn camera off and then on again." I've done this and it still doesn't correct the problem.


Answers :

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the\015\012battery 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\015\012batteries 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, your\015\012batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

I put a 4.0 gb sd card into the camera slot correctly. The camera says that the card must be formatted to work correctly. I format the card, but it just tells me I need to format again. There were pictures on the card initially and after the C643 tried to format, I rechecked and there were still pictures. I deleted all the pictures, and then tried to re-format, however I still get stuck in the format again and again loop. What exactly can I do to correct this problem?


I am of the opinion that this camera is only able to use cards of 2MB and that 4 MB SD cards are not suited to it.please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA ... Kodak EasyShare C643 Digital Camera

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power goes on and off straight away.

Blured Pictures A few weeks ago, I sent in a DSCW50 camera under warranty. I used the camera during the holidays and the problem still persists: images continue to come out blurred and out of focus.

I have done an extensive research over the web and I just learned that I am not the only consumer having a problem with this SONY product. In addition, in comparison with the images taken

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this model and how easy it is to get sorted. I have used rechargeable batteries since the camera was new (approx 3 yrs) and have tested the batteries as V.good. So i'm assuming that the problem is with the camera somewhere. Do you think if i reset the camera in the menu that would cure the problem , or

Charging problems I have recently bought a new ac adapter for my olympus stylus 600 and when i plug it in to charge it the camera will turn on and i can use it but it doesn't charge the battery.

Some of the files that have been stored onto my SD from the camera are screwey. For example, some photos and videos are able to be seen while others say this file isn't supported on the camera when editing or when on the pc, it says something about not having the correct graphics converter.

What do i do? i went to the seller and he said, hes has had this problem with other cameras before.. and he told me to get a new battery, so i did! but it still doesnt work! help?


By leaving it on the dashboard, I'm assuming you mean it got hot for less than 10 minutes. It only needs to reach critical temperature for 5 seconds to cause damage. Your camera is probably literally "fried". ... Sanyo VPC-T1060 Digital Camera
