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

Lumix DMC-TZ3 When I take picture the is a more dark area in my picture as a stain as you can see in the attached file


Answers :

Probably a dust particle or shaving from the plastic gears that lies on the CCD chip or one of the lenses just in front of it. Maybe by shaking or banging (NOT TOO HARD) the camera will shake off the particle. You can also look through the lenses from the front, maybe you can see the particle.

\015\012I do not recomment taking the camera apart. I did this with mine, it fell into the dirt and it got into the mechanics, terrible! The grains imbed themselves into the plastic and it becomes like sand paper!

Dark pictures I have a Canon EOS REbel T2 with the standard 28-90 lens. It had been working fine, but now my pictures are (almost all) coming out very dark and grainy. Further, I note that if I turn the camera 90 degrees to that a "portrait" picture -- 6" tall and 4" wide, I see a dark rectangle in the picture in the bottom right quadrant. I always set the camera to full program (the green rectangle). I have been using Fuji 400 speed file of late. Do you have any idea what I"m doing wrong?


Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure. ... Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

Aloha, My Lumix DMC-TZ3 is having issues. When I turn it on it is extremely dark. It's almost as if the camera is only registering one side of the color spectrum. Even the pictures that are taken come out dark, so I'm guessing it's a lens problem. Not sure how it happened, because the camera was not dropped or treated badly anytime recently. The day before it started going wonky, the pictures and camera were fine. Could this be a lens issue or something internal. Is there a reset button to resto


Unless the protector blades on the front of the lens aren't opening fully, this doesn't sound like a lens problem. It sounds more like a sensor problem. Reset is accomplished by going into the menu and finding "reset"...follow the on-screen instructi ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera

I have a Sony DSC-S950 Cyber-shot. I opened some pictures in the computer using PhotoShop to view and rotate pictures. After I rotate pictures and I resaved them back to the memory stick card, I can't view them on the camera. I only see a blue screen with File error on it. However, I still can see and reopen these pictures through the computer. Can I still print these pictures from the memory card? How can I restore back these picture files? I want to view them on my camera. Please help.

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos.

I cannot download the pictures neither from the card nor connecting the camera. How can I fix this? Which is the OS of the camera?

I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx

Dark Screen All I can see on the LCD display is just a very dark screen when turned on. It can display previously taken pictures just fine though. When I try to take a picture, it is just a black picture.


Your lens can not open the shutter, or CCD is dead. If you kept your camera in your pocket, most likely fine dust got in the lens and ultimetly between the shutter blades and now due to friction they can't open. But if you kept your camera clean, the ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

I just got the Nikon D3000 for Christmas, new in the box. I began to put it together, and I attached the lens and heard the click and everything. It has an error message that says "Lens not attached", when the lens OBVIOUSLY is attached. I can only "take a picture" in M mode, but there really is no picture at all. All that I can get is a dark image. Please help! Btw, I don't fully understand professional photographical terms, so please explain them thoroughly. Thank you!


Lets get you going on this camera. For the lens thing, the 18-55 Nikon lens is a good one. I'm going to\015\012 assume the lens was loaded while the camera was turned on (not a good \015\012idea). What I'm going to suggest is that you make sure the b ... Nikon D3000 Digital Camera

Lost Pictures After an unsuccessful attempt to install Leopard I had to copy all files, restore the original software to my PowerBookG4 and then return all files to the computer. In the process, all the images saved in Nikon Picture Project 1.7 seem to have disappeared. When I open the application, I see the icon of a JPG image, but no actual image. If I click the icon, I get a window saying image may have been deleted or moved to another location. If I click "find the image", and look in severa
