Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ8K Digital Camera ?

My dmc Lz8 continually zooms in and out and then goes blank.

\015 Now its saying to replace the batteries and wont do anything else. I have tried several sets of new batteries and nothing but the same result. its only 9 months old. please help\015

Answers :

Same problem, lens cycles in and out then says 'turn off and back on again'. I fixed by grabbing the lens as is comes out and pulling and wiggling to help it to it's full out position. Don't force it, but help it reach full out. It took a couple of times, but now seems ok. Suspect a grain of sand or dust was preventing it from reaching full extend.
I have the same problem - whenever I half-press the shutter to focus on something, the camera zooms out and zooms in 2-3 times and then shuts down, often with the lens extended.

The problem comes up only with batteries that are low on charge; with a freshly charged set, I've had no issues. I use Uniross Ni-Mh batteries (2500 MaH). Plan to switch to Sanyo eneloop soon.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1 Problem: Camera is not saving photos Hi, my camera started responding very slugglishly yesterday. I took a few pictures, and some of them wouldn't save. If I tried to switch my camera off, the screen would freeze on the "Saving photos". I checked the SD card on my laptop and those photos were coming up as blanks. I formatted the card and the camera recognises it, but it's still not saving photos. When I try to view the photo I've just taken, the screen goes blank

Focus camera will not focus, even sight screen is out of focus The camera will not focus. When switched on it beeps with a flashing green light near rthe view-finder and the lens housing extends. This repeats and the then the viewing screen goes blank. Pressing the AEL button will illuminate the viewing screen, but it is out of focus. Half depression of the shutter makes no difference.
