Re: Dying Lumix S-1

Well, $800 Canadian later I have a new PCB.  What the heck? I've not had the camera 2 years. And it's seen very little use. The tech had no definitive explanation. I asked him about streaming for more than 2 hours. He just said "Well, the S1H now has a fan in it." I suggested that most cameras would either give you a warning about over heating or shut down before things actually get fried. He suggested checking the manual. He wasn't smug. If he'd had more info he would have shared it. He just didn't know.

I've had to have the sensor replaced in my other body, fortunately still under warranty. This is not looking very good for these cameras. Anyone else having issues? Seriously, mine have seen very lite use.
