Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera

Open Question

Problems with DMC ZS3 taking dark photos. I have owned my panasonic DMC ZS3 for about a year and it took very good pictures. All of a sudden ever picture it takes is very dark--even the lcd darkens when it is attempting to focus. I reset all of the settings to factory defaults but no improvement. Any ideas of a fix or what is causing the dark photos?

SOURCE: I just need a user's manual for a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3.

Go here:

http://www.dphotojournal.com/panasonic-lumix-dmc-tz7-zs3-review-samples-user-manual/

And click on the "manual" tab.

In reality, this is trivial to find, if you just type into google:
Panasonic DMC-ZS3 Manual PDF

It pops almost to the top. Probably would have been less effort than putting the question up here ;)

SOURCE: My Panasonic Lumix® DMC-ZS3 will not focus

Try checking your settings or menu for a vibration sensor or changing the focus. You might also be using the wrong setting, like indoor, when you're at the beach. You can also change the quality of the pictures and if you are taking still photography or movement.

I have black spots on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 lens camera


If you want to know if these spots are on the sensor. Or you want to exclude this, You could try this:
Put the camera in A priority. (manual mode). Turn the aperture to the highest setting. Greatest figure like f 22 I can't find the exact figure. It could be it is only 8. Then in a bright light, take a picture of a white sheet of paper. The picture that comes out, should be checked on dark spots. If they are there the spots are on the sensor. If you can't find the spots on the white picture, something else is wrong.

Horizontal lines across photo images - video is ok


Hi there:
The only time I have seen horizontal lines in the pictures, it was a prelude to the CCD sensor failing. Sounds like a CCD sensor problem.If the CCD sensor is causing the problem, it will get worse soon. Usually the next thing to happen is that the colors will shift toward pink.

I suggest you phone Panasonic support and tell them the problem and that you suspect the CCD.Ask for a repair quote for a CCD replacement.If the product is under warranty.


In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Hi, My best guess would be that the battery isn't actually holding a charge anymore. I'd suggest trying a different battery as that should solve the issue.
