Hi, Can you take a picture (I know you cannot see it in the screen) and then see if it is OK when you download it to a pc?


Hi jayeff,

thanks for your prompt response.

I have just tried that and the result is a black screen, no image.

Faulty CCD? Loose connection?

It seems most likely that you have a faulty CCD sensor.

Here is a link to a video that shows how to replace the CCD sensor in your camera. It is in German but the video is self explanatory.


Here is a link to a supplier of the CCD sensor. It is not a recommendation to use the seller, it is merely shown to give an idea of the cost of the part and a close up view of what it looks like. There are others online that may suit you better. just search for panasonic lumix dmc-tz3 ccd sensor


Hopefully this is of some help.
