Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 Digital Camera ?
Dropped my camera w/lens out
\015 Lens will no longer go in or out. This camera is 3 yrs old; can it be fixed & would it be worth it? Pan. wants $160 so forget that. They probably wouldn't fix it anyway from all the stuff I've read about camera co's. This camera has always been dependable & takes very good pics.\015
I have also dropped my Panasonic dmc-lz3, I managed to get the lens to function again by gently pulling on it several times while activating the zoom lever. I hope this works for you.

My Canon A430 Camera got a bit wet when I fell into a Dam this weekend. The camera did not at all touch the water, but a few drops of water did land on the camera. After drying the few drops off, the camera still worked for the whole day as well as the whole evening, but the next morning the camera did not work. The green light above the screen on the top left does flikker when the camera is turned on (which is normal). I am even able to take a photo and the flash works. Through all of the the s

Camera dropped My son accidently dropped my C743 digital camera. It must have hit on the right side top corner because now the screen is all white with a black triangle outline through the top right side through the middle of the screen. The camera still takes good pict., but you cant see what you took, and what is the use of having a digital camera then? My question is: can the screen be fixed, or will it be cheaper to buy a new one? Thanks!

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also, this is going to make it seem like I'm always dropping my camera but a piece of the bottom broke off and I'm unsure how. I got it a little over a year ago. Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!
A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera
My Pentax Optio A20 camera display doesn't show true colors, they now have a red-orange tint. It was dropped on the grass yesterday. When I play back the pictures, all of them show up as red-orange on the display, the ones I took before it was dropped and after it was dropped. Everything else works fine on the camera. My brother-in-law says that there may be a reset button to restore factory settings.
It sounds like you may have a broken display. It is possible that it is the main board, but much more likely that it is the LCD display. I can fix this for $40, not matter if it is the display, or the main board. Or you can send it to Pentax in A ... Pentax Optio A20 Digital Camera
Dropped camera Hello, My daughter dropped her camera half on the grass with the lens part hitting the pavement. Now the lens is almost all the way out, but is stuck at an angle. When we turn it on it wants to retract, but doesn't, it just beeps. Any suggestions? Is it dead or can it be repaired for less than a new camera? Thank you.

HI, the camera was hanging on back of a chair with the strap and slip off to the Tile floor. The camera takes pictures but, lines come across the screen as soon as the picture is taken.

I dropped my camera while it was on and the lens was extended. And I dropped it right on the lens. And now when I turn the camra off, the lens does not go back inside the camera. Everything else is fine, I can see the picture perfectly. It's just the lens that won't go back inside. How can I fix this myself without buying a new camera, or having to pay someone to fix it?
