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

Screen reads..."Mode dial is not in the proper position"

\015 Nothing I have done solves this problem... eg recharge battery, select various mode settings, laying of hands ; ), etc.etc. No buttom pushing has remedied the problem.\015

Answers :

I had the same problem, so bought a few precision screwdrivers and took the back off. Be careful, but you can release the top section and on the bottom of the dial is a few plastic spacers which had squashed. I straightened these out, carefully put it back together, and this solved it. I think these spacers hold the electronin dial in place, hence why it comes up with " not in proper position ". If you fancy trying, it only took me 5 minutes and I know nothing about electronics.

I own a Canon GL2 Video Camcorder. While in the Camera Position, it appears on the view screen two horizontal white lines, one on top (1/4" from the top) and the other on the bottom of the screen about 1/4" from the bottom. Even though it does not affect the end result. It makes it very difficult to film as the lines don't allow me to center (align properly) the subject I want to film. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

I replaced my LCD Screen on my Canon SD450. The camera would start up, but the screen wouldn't show properly, now the camera won't power up at all. The power cable for the screen is bent from trying to get the connector seated properly.
