That’s a phrase that means ‘failed in service’.
In recent days, my faithful Lumix LX7 that I bought in June 2014 had developed quirky, unreliable traits.
Machines, including cameras shouldn’t develop irritable personalities. It’s an indication that the machine is broken.
On Saturday, 13 October 2018 the camera exhibited symptoms of failure. The weather had been exceptionally wet for two days in a row, and dampness is bad for electronics.
I made two images of Irish Rail 088 running around at Kent Station, Cork using LX7. Later in the day my efforts to turn the camera on resulted in an error message in the rear display.
Stay tuned . . .

15 years of service on my N2000. Even dropped on from a bridge unto the DBAG tracks below–picked it up and kept shooting.
