Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Panasonic Lumix DMC TS3 waterproof camera. After taking my camera to a fresh water lake, during which I took picture while swimming, I turned on my camera and the screen was very dark/dim. I could see the Lumix logo when it turns on and the on-screen menu as well. However, when I take a picture and view the picture on my computer, the picture is completely black. Is this a shutter problem or more internal? Can I resolve this issue without sending my camera to Panasonic?

There is not much you can do with it. Send/take it to an authorised Panasonic Repairer for service.

Remove the card and battery. Clean the battery contacts inside camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Be sure battery is charged. Press all buttons on camera. Insert card and then the battery. See if it works. If you can now get into the setup menu, you can do a reset from the menu.

Try taking the batteries out for a few minutes. They're may be a second battery for the camera clock and date. If there is, do the same. Good luck.

LCD woont turn on properly but the camera takes pictures while the screen remains black or in my case dark grey as its not totally black.


The water has ruined the LCD, water and electronics seldom mix, you are lucky it still will at least take pictures. If it is a high end model then send it back to the Factory repair center listed in the user manual (or phone number to find a repair center).

Does the orange panasonic lumix dmc-ts1 go underwater?


Yes, but not very deep. It's specified to be waterproof to three meters (about ten feet). You can use it at the pool or walking/wading along the beach. I wouldn't take one scuba diving.

Be sure that your batteries are fully charged and in fact using name brand rechargeable batteries. If you are using Alkalaid, make sure they are fresh. Alks after a use that runs them down will come back after awhile for some more pictures. If you have fresh batteries and the camera turns itself off after turning it on, it probably has a problem in the power supply section or the switching section on/off on a circuit board.
