Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5A Digital Camera ?

Pics too dark

\015 I have a panasonic dmc-tz5. all of a sudden pics are too dark, unusable. backlight is on lower right corner. when turned on says pics will go to digital memore. never did that before. wondering if i have hit a button by error. i am new camera user. thanks\015

Answers :

On the setup menu there is a reset command which leads to a reset rec settings which would be worth a try.
Look at the sensitivity settings (shutter speed), you may have set it too high (set it to auto). Try turning on intelligent exposure to auto/on. Turn intelligent/auto ISO on. Use iA setting for full automatic ono the dial when shooting. As for the message digital pic will go to memory, then that prob means you don't have a SD memory card installed, or it's not formatted, or set to locked.
\015\012give those a try.

I was using my M763 model and taking pictures just fine. Then, I went to take a pic and the LCD was dark. I clicked the review button, nothing happened, so I turned it off and it wouldn't turn back on. When I try to turn it on it flashes green for a nano sec, then red a couple of times, then nothing. When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture.

This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camer ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
