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

After a little shock the camera still works, but: turns the pictures in a confused way, one is upsite down, the next on the left and so on. This would not be a big problem, but: after a short time the display ask for switch off and then to switch on the camera. What can I do to use my Lumix DMC-FX100 more comfortable? Thank you, E.B.

Does it flash any error code on the camera before/after it asks you to turn off?
It sounds to me like a ribbon connector got jarred slightly loose, and some strange things are effecting the display. To fix this kind of problem, the camera will have to be taken apart, and the ribbon connectors reseated. They are held to plastic receptacles on the main board, and there are some to the LCD display, and one from the button control board. There are small plastic tabs at the end of the connectors that you gently lift up, releasing the pressure on the copper ribbon connectors. You can then take the ribbon connector out, and reseat it, gently pushing the top holding piece back down on the board connector assembly. There are a few screws on the cover, maybe 6 or 7, and some are hidden in the USB compartment sometimes, but if you take your time, and use a small philips (Walmart or Dollar Store in the small Precision Screwdriver set...a buck at the dollar store).
\015\012Just try to keep track of what screws go where. The cover screws are usually identical, but there can be two or more types inside the camera, in case you need to replace the LCD, etc. Keep track of them, since they're small and easy to mistake, and you can strip out a thread using a slightly larger screw.
\015\012If you're uncomfortable with the idea of tearing into it yourself, take it in to a repair shop and see what they think, and how much it would cost to repair. Then you can take it from there.
\015\012Good luck, and hope this helps.

LCD screen turns purple in shooting mode. Photos can be taken. Most are Ok, some slightly out of focus or faded coloration. If switched to play back mode and then back top shooting mode, display is Ok for a short time then degrades from top center in a V shape to a purple line display.

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

Kodak V1003 A few weeks ago, shortly after I'd taken a pic, the lens refused to retract and the camera switched off. It has never been dropped or had anything spilled on it. Strangely, when I press the button furthest left the camera comes on, allows me to view pictures on the card, set the time etc - everything except take pictures. Again when I try to switch off, the lens does not retract. Does this not suggest a software glitch of some kind?

No, unfortunately that is a problem with the hardware, software would not prevent the lens from retracting.\015\012\015\012If it is within manufacturer's warranty (usually 1 year) take it to any Best Buy they will send it out to the mfg f ... Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera
