My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?

Lens assembly The lens assembly has become loose. One of the outer rings has actually detatched from the camera body.When switching on - either the message 'lens fault' is displayed or a very blurred image is displayed in the LCD. The camera shop reckons the problem is quite common and estimates $A200 to fix ie replace lens assembly. Any similar experiences? (Of course, the camera is 3 months out of warranty).

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures. The mixture of colours on the LCD only shows when the camera is set on take the picture... and it doesn't even do it always. Thanks.

Fiji Finepix F401 - I have had great success with the above camera but it has suddenly developed what I think is a sensor problem. The viewfinder displays a badly blurred and distorted picture which is green and purple in colour. The camera will no longer take any still or video pictures. To make matters worse, I recommended this particular camera to my father and his has now developed the same problem. Both cameras are out of guarantee.


I am sorry sir, this is due to extreme expsoures high temperatures and sun. Also please mind that ur CCD sensor has to be replaced.\015\012\015\012Thankyou ... Digital Cameras
