Panasonic Cameras - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

It appears to be made for the Japanese market.

Panasonic will launch two new GPS systems in the form of the Strada CN-H500WD and CN-H500D. These in-dash car navigation systems feature "Motion Control" user interface, allowing you to manipulate the map with hand gestures. Both navigation gadgets also provide an integrated DVD/CD player, a 7-inch (800 x 480) LED-backlit touchscreen display, a 1Seg TV tuner, SRS WOW HD, a 60GB of internal HDD and the Panasonic PEAKS image processor. The Panasonic CN-H500WD and CN-H500D will be available in the Japanese market in August 2011.

Putting that model number into Panasonic Support search only brings up details in Japanese.

Had the same issue with my DMC-FZ50 for a couple weeks, and tried turning it onn and off countless times. I could hear something happening inside the lens on start-up and surmised the internal shutter was trying to open but wasn't able to. I guessed that the turn off/turn on idea was to resend the command impulse to open the shutter. So.... I t urned it on while repeatedly hitting the side of the lens firmly with the palm of my hand and.....it worked!!!!

Make sure you are not using an incompatible card like a SDHC card which looks identical. If the F3 can use those cards, make sure you format it in the menu system. If it still fails, try another card, it may be bad. Remove the card and do a short recording to internal memory to check system, if it is capable.

As for this kind of situation, you can resort to Leawo iTransfer to solve this problem. Just follow the below steps.

1. Run Leawo iTransfer on your computer and connect iPhone to computer with the USB cable. The software will recognize your iPhone and automatically detect the contents in your iPhone. Then the software will show the libraries of your iPhone in the left sidebar.

2. Click "Movies" in the left sidebar, and the contents will be shown in the right part of the window. If your Movie Library is empty, the software will offer an "Add File" button in the middle of the window to help you add video files from computer. Or you can click "File > Add > Add File/Add Folder" at the upper right corner of the window to add video files from your computer.
3. After choosing files, the software will start transferring videos from PC to iPhone. The progress bar in the dialog will show you the percentage of the transfer process, and when the transfer is done, you will get the videos in the target folder.
Note:
We all know that Apple has not enabled its iTunes to transfer video from iPhone to iTunes or computer. However, with Leawo iTransfer, you could easily transfer video from iPhone to computer or iTunes, as well as other data and file types like pictures, messages, notes, etc.

Why not install the appropriate driver for your OS ? Failing that, put the media card into a stand alone USB card reader attached to your computer, and download the images thus.

Yes, I know Panasonic DVD S48, if your movie file is right divx avi movie file, you can directly transfer the divx avi movie file to your usb disk and play on your Panasonic DVD S48, but if your movie files isn\'t divx avi movie file, you have to use a right software to convert your movies to right divx avi movies, then transfer to your usb disk, convert any movies to divx avi movies.

Sounds as if the camera has been left unused, and the batteries have leaked. Repair or replace, I'm afraid, whichever is cheaper.

Panasonic... | Answered on Jul 22, 2019


you have to convert the mov file to a mpg, mpeg or avi.

good luck

There should be instructions for this in the manual - it may be a menu setting. Alternatively, put the media card into a USB card reader attached to your computer.
