Panasonic DMC-TZ3 We have a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 camera that stopped working after 6 months. We sent it back to Panasonic for repair under warrany and they said it had internal "corrosion".

My Panasonic Lumix DMC FS3 is not powering on fully.... When I switch the camera to the on position the green light blinks on and then off and the lens opens but the screen doesnt seem to power on. When I shut the camera in the OFF position, the green light blinks on then off and the lens retracts back into the OFF position. Can I trouble shoot this or do I have to take to a repair shop? Is this camera even worth getting repaired

Stuck Lens I dropped my panasonic dmc fz1 digital camera. Now the zoom mechanism is stuck and the camera is basically a paperweight asking me to remove the lens cover (which is already removed). The lens wants to click into gear, but can't quite. Any suggestions beyond getting a new camera. So far I haven't even figured out how to take the lens housing off.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-tz3 camera. I dropped it and cracked the lens cover and badly bent the metal lens part. Can I order the new lens and replace it myself, or must it be sent in? It doesnt seem to screw off.

Hello, I own a Fugi Finepix F100 camera. Last week my dog was pulling on his leash trying to get to a gaggle of ducks and caused me to drop my camera down into snow. I tried to dry it off and in doing so might have damaged the retractable lens cover. Now it is not reliable in opening all the way, I usually need to help slide it back so that the lens is fully exposed. I really don't want to have an expensive repair unless necessary...what do you advise? Thank you! Linda


If you can get a free estimate for repair (local camera shop), then determine if the expense of having it repaired is worth not having to help the lens cover retract ... Digital Cameras

My camera doesn't turn on at all. I took it out of its cover today and I first thought it was a battery problem so I recharge my battery but it still doesn't turn on at all. I tried to connect it to my computer, hoping that it will do something but still nothing. Strangely enough, the lens is on and I don't want to use force to put it back inside, afraid that it might damage the camera even more.Should I send it for repair? and if yes, where is the best place to do it? thanks in advance

My Panasonic DMC-TZ3 lens cover gets stuck and won't open completely. It has been getting worse. If I CAREFULLY assist it, it will fully open. I don't remember any trauma, such as dropping the camera. I've had it almost a year and a half and the problem started about 6 months ago. I am going on a big trip in a week and need a reliable camera. Thanks! Bradley
