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

I have a panasonic DMC-TZ3 when I turn it on it displays mode dial is not in proper positon. It will let me take pictures in certian modes but will not let me view pictures or be on the heart mode ro scn1. Can you please Help!


Answers :

I assume you have tried rotating the dial back and forth to try to clean the contacts when camera is off.

If this hasn't worked, try dropping some contact cleaner, available from radioshack or try alcohol first, with a toothpick under the edge of the dial when camera is on its back, at the same time rotating the dial back and forth. I haven't tried it, but the dial knob may pull off the camera if you can get a little pry under it.

If this doesn't work, consider getting a quote from a local camera shop, cause pana with be too expensive. Also, repairmen and those upgrading to the TZ5 sell very good TZ3's on ebay, and will buy yours the way it is. The difference you would pay for a sell and buy ebay will likely be less than a repair bill by a camera shop.
