Question about Panasonic Lumix Cameras
This camera shoots video without a problem. But it produces a white 'overexposed' low contrast image with parallel lateral lines, opening up to an 'eye' shape in the centre, the top and bottom line waves are in opposite directions. The images have a trace of colour in them, but quite 'pastel'. It does this regardless of shooting mode, jpeg or raw, manual or automatic exposure, even in any 'scene' mode. I reset the camera to factory condition. There is basically no way to take a picture without it being as I described. I have a service manual, and I ran error codes, it produced none, it has the latest firmware, it does it with both internal storage and SD cards. The diaphragm is responsive to light, I can see it open and close when I shine a torch into the lens. I'm assuming because the video is fine, it would rule out the sensor. There may have been an error when the last owner installed the updated V2 firmware, that situation does not report an error code. I can't re-load V2, it doesn't allow it if it already has the latest firmware. I may have to re-initialise the camera at base level to re-install V2, but I'm a bit reluctant to do that in case I Brick it. Anyone struck this before? Thanks.
That is about the only thing you can do now that you suspect there may be a software issue. Was it working fine before the latest firmware install? If not, then the issue is with the internal chip that sets up the correct parameters for shooting still shots.
And if unit out out of warranty you can forget a repair - it is much too expensive and not cost effective.

It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.
