Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 / DMC-ZX1 Digital Camera - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

First, back up any important stuff to the PC. Then format the card in the camera.

In the future, avoid doing stuff on the card. Copy the image to the PC, edit it there, then copy it back to the card. Be aware that any edited photos may not be visible on the camera.

You need to download the photos to your computer first.
You can delete the photos off the memory card or go to the camera's Menu and select format the memory card, this will remove all the photos from the memory card.

I have had success with this camera data recovery program

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Next" and wait for it to do it's magic.

You don't really need it. Pros never use the camera to computer connection for downloading pics. They use a card reader and download to a folder they create on the desktop. Once there, the pics can be sent to any program you want.

The practical answer is that you can't open the camera and use compressed air. The real answer is..." it up and grab that can of compressed air. Just don't be surprised or upset when you put the camera back together and it no longer works. But the experience will be fun." If the foreign object doesn't actually appear on the pictures, don't worry about it. All lenses have stuff and dust inside. It will move around as time passes.

Go into the set-up menu (it has a wrench icon) and the next to last entry (it has an icon of a "face" trying to talk). One of the entries in that line will be "english".

The non functioning of the camera can be a fault in the shutter, zoom or auto focus sections and may be due to the failure of the Main control system or the drive. A simple was is to reset and we can try by removing the battery and card for some time. Now replace only the battery and while switching power ON, tap the lens hood on the palm of your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must the camera be opened. If so check the voltage on the motor drive, check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and released. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

Thank You for using Fixya

If it got wet, like spilled a little water on it, then it is possible to get it fixed by just by letting it dry with battery removed and putting it in rice canister will help too. But if it "went for a swim" then it can not be repaired.

In the camera's menu system, you will find an entry for "copy" which gives you the option to copy the internal memory to a memory card.

Having gone over a month without a resposen to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader eliminated the need for a camera driver.

If they do not show up on the actual pictures, do not worry about them. Being on the lens, they would be so out of focus as to not cause any problems.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Well, it seems like your Camera's Lens kit is making trouble. You can double it by bringing the camera unit, closer to ear, and try hearing the lens kit gears mechanism. If it's facing, some obstacle, or finding difficulty in proper movement, you'll hear grinding sound from the kit. Some tips, that might work, before visiting the service center, Try shaking the unit gently, After removing the battery, and the back up cell, and you can also try hitting the camera on the palms. But DO MAKE SURE, to be gentle during shaking and hitting the camera unit..

No.The only way you can connect your camera to a computer is via usb connection cable (supplied) .Remove the card from the camera,then insert it into the card reader on your computer ..Be sure the memory card for your camera is compatible with your card reader.
