Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 Digital Camera ?

My Panasonic DMC-LZ3 camera appears to have locked up

\015 My DMC-LZ3 camera appears to have frozen/locked up. The camera turns on and I can see from the LCD what the view finder would take a picture of if it worked. However no buttons work including the zoom so can no longer take pictures. The lock up affects all modes including viewing as it just displays the very last picture that I took and I can't scroll through or delete etc. Even hooking it up to PC via the USB cable to download the last pictures taken can't be done as it won't recognize the pushing of the select button to select PC once connected. Any fixes for a camera lockup?\015

Answers :

I encountered similar problem today with DMC-LZ3. In scene mode page is constantly scrolling with page no. decreasing. I suspect up button is jammed, but have no solution. Have tried power off, up button tapping, card out, etc. maybe time for next camera
Make sure the scene mode dial is correctly "clicked" into a choice. You could also try this...remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.
