My Lumix TZ60 flash has stopped firing ? Can this be repaired at a reasonable price. I live in South Africa

Technician's Assistant: How old is your Lumix?

About 4 years old

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

Nothing yet

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

I seldom use the flash - but I did drop the camera recently - possible since then that this happened . Everything else seems to be working fine

First, try selecting a Reset from the Setup menu in case any of the settings are stopping the flash from working.

If that doesn't work, then the camera will need to be sent for repair.

An estimated repair cost is around $50-75 (600-900 Rand).
