Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera ?
Cannot view subject in view finding
\015 Screen is is black when camera is turned ont - showing several icons and a square in the middle of the blank screen.\015
Solution: Turn the camera on. Put it into camera mode so the lens\015\012opens. Then push up on the underside of the lens, you'll see the screen\015\012light up and it can now take pictures. This worked for me for a month\015\012or two. The problem is that I have to keep pushing harder and harder to\015\012get it to turn on, and now it turns back off as soon as I stop pushing.\015\012So I have to get a new camera. This is a widespread problem with this\015\012camera. I previously paid Panasonic the $162 to fix the zoom freezing\015\012up. I'm not paying again.

Lcd Hi. I was sure that the LCD monitor could be used instead of the viewfinder. I cannot find any information on how to activate that portion. All I can do is turn the LCD off and on and in the on position all it ever shows is the current settings. When a picture is taken it goes to the 2 second viewing and then back to the settings menu. I went through the manual and cannot find any advice.
Normaly, a reflex camera cannot use the LCD monitor as like a non reflex camera. Your camera was designed to be used like a film camera. The CCD panel at the film plane is sort of like having a film inside the camera. \015\012\015\012Ther ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.
I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...

I have a pentax optio A30 with 2.0 gb card. I took pictures last night of my grandsons birthday and was viewing them in the camera as I took them.

I have not done anything with my camera. HELP!!! How could I have lost my grandson's pictures when they were all there last nig
I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machine ... Pentax Digital Cameras

I am shooting with a 10mm - 22mm lens - however that should not matter. Frequently my camera cannot find a focal point and therefore i cannot active the shutter release. I am forced to switch to either Manual focus or A (Automatic. I generally have the camera set to either AV or P for standard shooting. I have an EOS Reblel (6.4 pxls) that i've used with the same (10 -22) lens and i have never run into this focusing issue. Also, I am framing pretty standard subjects like doorways etc....N

Focus failure Hi. I hope you can help. I've a canon 40D and am using it remotely with the EOS utility v 2.3. I am only able to take an image when the live view mode is active. When inactive and I use either the shoot button or the timer, an error flashes up "focus failure". The camera focuses fine in live mode. Have dragged my way through the instruction manual and cannot find a troubleshooting section covering this problem. Hope you can help. Thanks Joe

I just received a Cannon Rebel for xmas and it was taking pictures just fine then it wouldn't autofocus and take a clear picture. I do not know if I accidentally hit a button when holding the camera but I cannot get it to take a clear pic. It also flashes a busy signal across the top of the viewing screen when it is flashing. I tried to find the fix in the guide, but nothing helped. Thanks!
Take it back and get an exchange- it's too early in the game to be getting error messages. It shouldn't be flashing busy, unless it's having trouble writing to a faulty card, or some other obscure defect. If it's too inconvenient to have it exch ... Digital Cameras
