Panansonic Camera needs Servicing or Repair

Postby Zeenit » Wed, 13 May 2009 9:16 am

I have tried calling Panasonic directly but they dont seem to answer the phone. Is there anywhere else that i can take the camera to for servicing?

Thanks

What is wrong with your camera? I've got a FX-09 where the LCD display has died... no more backlight. According to the parts list this is a US$ 122 item.

Let me know if you find a place... I'd like to see if repairs are possible on my camera.

SE, I got hold of Panasonic and took my camera along. They were very helpful and had to reset it as it was hanging. And also sent someone to show me what some of the functions do. As i know a very little but enough not to be told use Auto it was helpful. And they never charged me a cent :D

I had to call a few times before I got thru. But if you in Sinagpore and have 1 hour just pop along. Why I say 1 hours was in case they get someone to come and talk to you and show you things etc. But otherwise it was about 10 mins waiting before I saw someone and they were very helpful.

What do you mean? If you go at crowded time, you wait. I went early and had no wait to get my camera fixed. Service is fine. Hard to get in on the telephone.

Zeenit - I neet to drop a lens of mine into Nikon next week - I'll ask them if they might be able to fix it. They said they would also fix any problems with our FZ-18 Lumix (!).

Panasonic fixed my camera on the spot and gave me a tutorial all for free. Also ordered me 2 lens caps for under $9.00. :D :D

All i now need is a new Canon 450D :P
