Panasonic Lumix TZ3 began Plese shut down turn the camera off and back on again" after every picture of after being on for around 20 to thirty seconds. If I was able to take a picture, it would be displayed up-side-down.. The jpg was correct when downloaded. This happened 16 days after I purchased the camera. (2 days after the return period). I was able to exchange the camera for another, and everything seemed to work, then I began to get up-side-down images again. The only items were the old battery, (freshly charged) and the old memory stick. I was unable to locate a Service Center contact for Panasonic that was of any help. Any suggestions? The camera worked great for the first two weeks I had it, but the same problems with a new camera has me stumped.

Hi, My Yashica EZ F9 Zoom will not turn on. The "on" green light will flash for a moment but then the camera shuts off within seconds. I put in fresh batteries, new memory card, and nothing happens. I can download pictures that I already had on my previous memory card onto my computer, but it won't let me take any pictures because the camera won't turn on for more than a couple of seconds.
