Memory Card Error ¶
When you turn on the camera, it indicates that the memory card is not detected
Full Memory Card ¶

Failure to Turn On ¶
Your Lumix DMC -FX9 fails to turn on
Low Battery ¶
If your Lumix DMC -FX9 fails to turn on or the camera stays on for a short amount of time and turns on, the battery needs to be replaced or charged. Locate the battery cover under the camera, and press in the battery to remove, if the battery is rechargeable, charge the battery, or if it’s with regular batteries, replace with new batteries.
Incompatible Battery ¶
If you Lumix DMC-FX9 shows a “Battery Cannot Be Used” error message, you will either insert a battery that’s incompatible with your Panasonic camera, or you are using a third-party battery that may not work with your Panasonic. If the third-party battery is not compatible with your camera, opt for a battery manufactured by Panasonic.
Flash Malfunctioning ¶
When I take a picture, the flash won’t go off
Flash is Disabled ¶
Turn your camera off, wait about 10 seconds and power the camera back on. On top of the camera, find the mode dial to the left, slightly behind the Shutter button. Turn the mode dial until you get to an icon that is a red camera, this is the normal mode, which the flash should always go off when taking a picture.
Flash is Broken ¶
If your camera is in the normal mode and the flash will not go off, the flash assembly can be broken.
Unresponsive Screen ¶
My camera screen is black when I turn on the camera
Broken LCD Screen ¶
If the camera turns on and the lens extends in the photo taking mode, but your screen does not display an image at any time during the photo taking process, your screen is broken.
Battery is Broken ¶
Make sure that your battery is charged. When placing the battery into the camera but the camera will not turn on, then the battery is bad and need a replacement.
Lens will not Extend ¶
When I turn on my camera the lens will not open or extend
Broken Lens Assembly ¶
If your lens does not extend when turning on the camera, and you have checked the battery and display, then you need to replace the camera lens assembly.
Dirt in you Lens ¶
When turning on your camera, the lens attempts to open, but get stuck and resets (go back in and not extend), then there is dirt or small particles in the lens. Use a small soft brush to sweep your lens clean but be careful to not scratch the lens on the front or another solution is to blow air on the lens to get the dirt out.
