Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera ?

I see all the service complaints about Panasonic not servicing their products. Is it true that Panasonic just does not care if their customers are serviced or not?


Answers :

You need to understand that most cameras are assembled by robots in Japan....very little human contact. To repair your camera, someone has to physically take it apart and do as good a job as the original robots did. Very difficult and expensive. So, companies like Panasonic would rather just exchange a refurbished camera for the one you send them. This is not true of the high-end cameras like Nikon and Canon pro DSLR's....those are cost-effective to fix because they are so expensive. Point and shoot cameras like yours....not so much.

Flip Ultra camera - after turning on, the Flip icon shows up, but then freezes. It won't even shut off. We have to take the batteries out to turn it off. Called customer service 3 days ago. Was told to take the batteries out for 24-48 hours, then put them back in and it should work. We did this, but the camera is still frozen. I only bought the camera this past May (2008) I was taping and then when I turned my flip off, it froze up and now won't do anything.

I have a Panasonic PVGS19 Mini DV Camcorder. The problem is the flip screen. Will not work when fully open. There is a picture when it is opened at about 1/4 of the way. Also, when opened and flipped over ( self portrait mode) and closed the image is upside down. Thinking it is a mechanical connection between the camera and the LCD that either need some cleaning or repair. Can I do this myself? Not cost affective to have repaired by service, I am sure.

CCD Problem My HP Photosmart 945 camera's CCD broke down, and I'm told that there's no way to repair it, because HP does not sell the part. What could I do?.
