Created: 0000-00-00Last modified: 0000-00-00

There has been a few Australian users mentioning that when water gets on the FZ-M1 screen it becomes unresponsive or erratic. After discussions with software engineers from Panasonic Australia, they have released a patch which improves the screen performance when the screen is wet.

Download the file attached and save to your FZ-M1 harddrive.

Unzip the file and run the program “TP_Verup.exe”

Follow the onscreen prompts. 

Once installed, change the screen type by going to the Panasonic Dashboard > Basic Tab > Touch Panel Mode and selecting “Touch (Water)”. 

Only select this mode when the screen is going to be/becomes wet. Change back to your default mode when not wet.
