Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 Digital Camera

Open Question

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera. I have not had it that long and just use the IA mode and I know it worked before; can I reset the camera back to factory settings? I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.

SOURCE: LCD showing "remove len cap and press reset button" always

Simple! Read warnings carefully! It said "remove lens cap and press SET button"! So remove the lens cap and then press the SET button (or arrow downward in the four directions button)! You don´t need to RESET anything...

SOURCE: Lumix TZ3 lens does not open

It is not clear if you are saying whole camera turns off or just screen turns off.

Notice before the camera went bad the lense does not extend in play mode, while it does in record mode. Many cameras have software that automatically turns camera off if lens cannot/fails to extend for some reason. Try to help it extend in record mode before camera turns off.

Hi,

I tried Option No.1 successfully when my Panasonic DMC-FZ7K froze once:

Option No1:


1. Try turning the camera on with the battery inserted.

2. Now remove the battery while the camera is on.

3. Flip the switch on the camera to off, then insert a fully charged battery. (Make sure that the battery's orientation is correct. Also make sure that the battery being used is not damaged).

4. Now flip the camera's switch to ON again.
------------------------------------------------------------
Option No. 2:


If you can open the Setup menu then the camera can be reset which might help:

Turn on the camera.

1. Press MENU SET.

2. Press the left arrow button.

3. Press the down arrow button.

4. Press the right arrow button.

5. Now, press the up arrow button several times until the menu item named RESET is highlighted. Push the right arrow button and then select and set YES when the camera asks to be reset.

SOURCE: Panasonic Mumix DMC-FX07 Problem: All Buttons Locked, Scene Mode Jacked

Hey the same kind of problem happened to me last week and I was sorely pissed off. These cameras are not cheap to buy when they are new. Anyway I was looking up the number of the local service agent and turned my camera on to check something. Just by chance I found that if I touch the button on top for taking the picture and then simultaneously press the menu button I got access to my whole camera again! Now when I say touch I mean touch...lay your finger on the button do not press it even to the first stage, which is auto focus. It worked for me and if it works for you post your result to benefit anyone else who comes across this problem. Future.

Push UP on the lightning bolt located right above "OK" on the back of your camera until it shows an icon with a circle around and line through the lightning bolt.This should force the flash OFF.

Hope this helps.

HOW DO I TURN OFF THE FLASH


Press up on the control button (marked with a lightning bolt) repeatedly to cycle through the various flash modes. Your choices are auto (blank), forced on (lightning bolt), slows ynchro (lightning bolt and "SL"), and forced off (lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it).

Don't forget to turn it back on when you're done.

Flash not working, blured pictures


Do you have the flash turned off? Does the screen show a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt and watch the screen for a lightning bolt and an "a".

The flash will not work. I think something needs to be reset but not sure how to do that.


On the Navigaton direction button on the back of the camera the "Right direction" button has a little lightning bolt sign.

Repeatedly press this button while the camera is in picture taking mode to go through the flash settings sequence. (Watch the display while pressing this button)
Settings:
1 No Flash, Lightning bolt circled with slash across it.
2 Auto Flash, Lightning bolt with an "A" beside it.
3 Auto RedEye remover, includes an "eye" symbol.
4 Flash Always On, Lightning bolt alone.
5 Unknown, I don't know what the S mode is, I haven't used that one before (something to do with ISO virtual film speed setting).

Have fun.
Hope this was helpfull.308b6a1.jpg

The flash is not openning


The flash may be set on "Suppressed" - meaning there will be no flash. On the back, by your right thumb, there is a round button. It's the ring around the MENU button. On the right of this you'll see a symbol which looks like a lightning bolt - (Flash). Turn on the power. Push down on the right side of this ring type button, towards the lightning bolt. Everytime you push, it sets the flash for a different mode. Try changing the flash mode and see if it doesn't fix your issue.

How do I turn off the flash for a coolpix 885?


There is a dedicated button (with the symbol of a lightning) for the flash. To turn off flash, press the button (maybe repeatedly) till the flash indicator on screen shows 'lightning with a circle around it'. To set it back, press the same button till the display shows Lightning and A.

Search on the Internet, you will definitely find a soft copy of the User Manual of your camera.
