Panasonic Lumix FX-01 lens bent to the side

\015 My Panasonic camera turned on by accident (because it's too easy to hit the On switch), and somehow I the lens extended and bent to the side - very tightly. Panasonic wants too much to repair it and I wanted to see if you have any ideas to DIY fix it.Or would the optics be too messed up?Thanks!\015

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-tz3 camera. I dropped it and cracked the lens cover and badly bent the metal lens part. Can I order the new lens and replace it myself, or must it be sent in? It doesnt seem to screw off.

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.

Hello I just purchased a .42 wide angle fisheye lens for my panasonic lumix dmc-fz8 and when i bought it on ebay it said its for either a fz7/8. When i tried to attach it today the lens adapter does not fit the thread. I was wondering if maybe the lens on the camera should be taken off? I'm not sure.

Because it fits when just put the fisheye lens but when i turn it on it says "please remove lens cap then press play" so I'm very
