Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera ?

Zoom lever sticks

\015 I have had my Panasonic Lumix camera for over a year and just recently the zoom lever started sticking in whichever position is pressed (tele or wide). It used to spring back to the original center position . Now is stays to either side and the lens continues to move. Could this be due to a setting change or is it a malfunction?\015

Answers :

Hi, the only reason the zoom lever sticks is dirt. Either dust or some sort of liquid may have spilled on the camera. If you wipe it off, it does not help as the liquid gets into the zoom lever mechanism.It will have to strippd and cleaned.

Zoom Error Just bought an Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom for my daughter. In less than 24 hours the cam developed a problem.

I have a canon EF 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens that has a zoom lock switch. When in the unlocked position and I try to zoom the lens it sticks at around the 200mm mark and cannot seem to move it below that positon, I need to wiggle the barrel before the zoom seems to "let go" and the lens goes to other positions. This is quite a problem as the lens cannot be operated in all its positions. Also when trying to get it unstuck, it feels like I am applying too much force and could further damage

What happened is this: the zoom lever has become loose. I hadn't applied any excessive pressure to it or force to it in any way, but while using it to navigate through the photo browser (which is one of its functions) it suddenly made a slight ?click? sound and felt very loose (as if a spring or a coil inside it broke). Subsequently the camera only zooms in/out to its maximum capacity, while normally it should pause between the zooms. g7 canon
