Customer Question
How can I reset...

How can I reset my camera so it records normally. It tends to record in slow motion and then speeds up.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your camera?

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ 70

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Lumix?

It all began when I reset some of the features. I don't know how to get back to recording normally.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

I just want normal recording features back. I especially want to use it for sports.

There is no < / > button on my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ 70 camera. When I turn the camera mode dial to Record motion pictures with manual setting, it gives me two RESET options. The first is labeled No. RESET (Reset the no. in the camera Yes or No) and the other is labeled RESET (Reset Rec. settings). No message appears stating as you wrote "When a message appears select “Yes” and then press[MENU/SET] button". In the past I used the iA button (automatic settings) to take videos but there is no RESET button in that mode. Also after I press the reset button. It also asks me to RESET parameters, what are they?

Can you see a +/- button?

Can you select SETUP and then RESET?

Ask Your Own Camera and Video Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No to both of your questions. The setup menu does have any does not have RESET within the choices for SETUP.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 7 months ago

The Parameters are all the various settings that are stored in the camera.

If one of the parameters was changed to cause a slow or fast recording then resetting the parameters should correct the problem that you are seeing.

Try resetting the parameters and let me know if that works?

Pete,
In my camera the video runs normal. When I transfer the video to my computer, it runs in slow motion.
