20 Most Recent Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera - Page 2 Questions & Answers


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Please ensure you are using the included USB cable to connect the camera to the PC. Then turn the camera on. You will then be prompted to select a USB mode. Choose "PC".

This only happens when the camera has a serious problem. Next to turning off the camera, you also could remove the battery and charge it, before placing it back. Also check all contacts of the battery and memory card. Don't forget to close the battery door correct, after you charged an replaced the battery.
Make sure, nothing can obstruct the movement of the lens when the camera is switched on.

The motor will make a noise as that's the sound of the gears miving along the lens. I wouldn't shake the camera if I were you though.

The hardware inside is defective. You will need to replace the camera either by warranty or buy a new one. Make sure you save your pictures!

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

Did you ever resolve the issue with the "tv output in progress" screen as we have exactly the same problem. Many thanks.

TRY DROPPING THE CAMERA -- YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE!

I was heartbroken to learn that my Lumix DMC-TZ1, which I purchased 2-3 years ago, had died -- right during my daughter's dance recital, for seemingly no reason. Tonight I was surfing the web researching replacement cameras (many brands), and I realize that I feel like there is no real "history" on the camera that's any worse than any other camera on the market, including the Canon Powershots, which are all the rage right now. So I started researching on the Fixit site other cameras for possible problems.

What I found is that all the cameras have funky messages (Sony and Canon included!) that result when he camera has been dropped or the lense has somehow been altered. So I read all the different "solutions" and then came up with my own:

I decided that the lense needed to be un-jammed. At this point, if the camera was useless to me, I might as well take a chance and try to unjam it. So I did!

I held the camera about 3-4 inches from a table top. Then I simulated a "drop" (without the case) that was gentle enough that it wouldn't smash the LCD but that would maybe make the lense unjam. (Note: I couldn't SEE any problem with the lense; this was just a hypothesis I couldn't go wrong trying.)

Each time I put the camera on, tried to modify the zoom (a function which normally makes me get the error message forcing me to turn the camera off), and then got the message. BUT the 3rd or 4th time: TA DAH! NO MESSAGE! INSTEAD, A SHOCKER: I WAS ABLE TO MODIFY THE ZOOM! AND THEN I TOOK A PICTURE! AND VIDEO!!!!

So my camera is back! And I also have discovered that the flash problem I had started to have previously has now seemed to have gone away also.

My advice is to just TRY! You have nothing to lose: try "dropping it" back into shape! I know it sounds crazy -- but I just saved at least $200 by doing this!

Did the battery fully recharge? Recharge it again mean while keep the camera switched of. If the memory card is removable try it in a card reader. If this problem persists it may be a camera electrical fault In which case contact Panasonic customer support
