Lens inside dirty - Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera


Answers :

Hello,
Unfortunately you would need to strip the lens completely to get to all glass elements inside to clean them. This is fairly fiddly operation and although I rate TZ3 lens as one of the easiest to dismantle I wouldn't recommend it unless you're really really comfortable with fiddly stuff. Actually, it's easy to take apart-putting it back together is more tricky - I learned the hard way :)
I would suggest getting a TZ3 with e.g. a broken screen from ebay and use it as a donor to get working lens and replace the one on yours.
Unfortunately I don't think there's an easy way to fix this.
Good luck,
Raf
Well... The service manual is here:

before you do it, can I suggest popping the end of a shop vac over the lense as it is pulled out and seeing if that helps at all? It probably won't but it's a lot easier than pulling this to pieces, especially since the lense is not that accessible.

I wish you luck, it's not a fun task!

I have a Panasonic Lumix digital camera model DMC-TZ3. It fell into a toilet 8 months ago. I know gross. Fell when the water was still clean.Camera seemed dead. Found it in my garage the other day and stuck the battery in it and it came to life and takes pictures. Problem is that the inside of the lens needs to be cleaned as the water dried inside and left it smudged. Camera shop wants $161.00 to clean it. A new camera of this model is on Amazon for same price. How do I get inside the len

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on. I've tried recharging the battery, changing memory cards, no memory card, switching settings and turning the on/off switch. Is there anything to be done or I do I just need to get a new camera?
