Initial settings menu (Locality)

David Wong `davwon' (dpreview, Panasonic forum, 30 March 2004) writes...
I found this step from my bro.
1. With the FZ10 in stand-by mode or power off, set the dail to `P' mode. then switch On the power while at the same time holding down the `^'(up) and `Burst Mode' buttons.
2. Switch the FZ10 to Playback mode, and press `^'(up) & the `Burst Mode' button at the same time. (You'll hear a beep) {only if the `beep' of your camera is turned on!)
3. Switch back to `P' Mode. Then turn off the power while pressing the `Menu' and `>'(right) button at the same time.
4. When the setting screen appears, use the `v'(down) button to select `USA'. Press `>'(right) to set.

The TV/LCD will now display whatever is shown in the FZ10 viewfinder or LCD screen

Credit.... & Thanks A LOT 2 Him.

Because my FZ10 (in Thailand) is not have Video out in REC. mode and this model can't adjust LCD angle. This help alot.

Now... i connected it to 6" TFT LCD From china factory ,can operate on 4 AA for 5 HR.

Now... i can take a shot from any angle even back behideme :-)

Try some if u have "FZ-10 / FZ-XX Serie" and have this kind of problem.

And.........my FZ10 IS STILL GOOD .

It just like do a "ALL RESET"

Have 2 set a clock .

Have 2 set every config like it justcame from factory.

Also the file name too.

it worked... it worked....

just finished tried it again, and it worked now, we only need to follow step #3, and now my tv shows anything my camera is pointing at...

maybe this is a good example the benefit of doing this :
