Lense error- can hear lense trying to open, but lense does not come out of the camera body. This is weird because the camera was not dropped/hit/damaged. I used the camera to take night images of a rising moon. It took pics fine, but about an hour later when I tried to turn the camera on to review the pics, I got the lense error as noted above. 4 days later, same problem. The manual doesn't have any troubleshooting for this problem. Any suggestions? Anyone.....? Thanks for your time!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Image 'melts' into streaky vertical lines when camera is turned on. This problem started occuring immediately after I found my kids deliberately turning the camera off while jamming the lens cover open, so they could get the 'turn camera off and then on again' error message (yes, I know - they've been banned from touching it again). I confiscated the camera, turned it off and it sat unused for about 3 days. When it was next turned on, the image on the LCD screen was

But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black.

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

Bought in 2005 and have enjoyed its marvelous pictures. I put new batteries in, checked the ''all but empty card'' by seeing if it would download to computer; it did, no problem there.

The colors are also slightly off. I do not remember dropping the camera. I noticed that the screw plate on the bottom edge had one

Blurry lenses Same problem exactly. I'm not sure what happened (maybe sand in the camera?) The camera now turns off to a black screen, If I push the botton to see ast pictures, the screen works again and lets me see through them. But If I go back to "take picture mode", the image they give me is all blurry and if I try to use the zoom, the camera turns off.

I would take some images, put the camera down without turning it off and move on to the next spot. At the second stop the camera would not work. I'd turn it off, remove the battery, run the lens in and out and eventually it would work again. The message I got was F--, which said that the lens was not installed properly. However the lens was never removed. What's
