lcd screen lit but remains plain white

My Lumix DMC-TZ5's LCD screen turns on, but while lit, only remains plain white. Other than that, it is fully functioning, as I can see the resulting photos taken when I open the SD card on the computer.

I was wondering what I could do to check if the problem is with the LCD itself or if it's something with the electronic components, that wouldn't be fixed by simply replacing the screen. I just don't want to buy a new screen, replace it, and then find out that the problem remains.

Lui Farias, the plain white is the backlight. You are not getting any image signal. One way to make sure that it is your LCD, is by taking a couple of pictures. If the images are okay, it most likely is your LCD. If not, you have issues either on the lens connector or with your logic board. Check your cable to make sure it is properly seated and that you have no corrosion on your connector, the cable and the logic board. Hope this helps, good luck.

Hey guys,

I have the exact same issue with my TZ5. For me it seems to be a problem with the contacts for the mode dial. If I push the mode dial up while turning the camera on, it starts with a white screen, if I firmly push down the mode dial while turning on, it usually works. Without pushing on the dial, I get the problem intermittently. I haven't tried to fix it yet, but I may take it apart and see if there are any contacts that can be bent into place. Any tips on disassembly instructions?

Cheers,

Matt

It definitely sounds like the LCD connector has loosened, you can try to disassemble the camera and reseat it however be VERY careful of the flash capacitor. It holds a very high voltage and can give you a nasty shock if you touch it, so make sure to discharge it first!

Failing that, it is probably a failed LCD. If even replacing the LCD doesn't work, it's probably a motherboard problem, which is going to be more expensive to repair than the camera is worth.

Same issue with mine, it has been a good camera up until now, but now the screen is generally white. Pictures are still good when I download to the camera, but hard to take them when you can't see or frame what you are taking. It will occasionally come back on, but 9 times out of 10 it is white. :-(

Panasonic should recall and do free repairs.... wishful thinking!

I have this white screen problem for last 3 months. Prior to that the camera Lumix DMC TZ5 worked like a charm. Usually when I turn it on it gets white screen. After doing on and off several times, it does come and and the pics are as good as they ever were. It seems as same issue as Matt's problem above. His solution of pressing the Mode Dial seems to work for me too. I wish there was a simple solution to the problem. I don't have the expertise or the tools to open this camera up and try to fix the contact issue.
