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.

When i turn the camera on, the F (aperature) button blinks, not allowing the camera to focus, even in auto mode. when this happens, i can't even customize my setting on A or S priority. I am frustrated because i can't get my camera to take a picture until the camera decides to focus itself!

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

It turns on and off; the flash works, the menu is accessible - everything. It just doesn't register any photos. Even in close-up mode, there is nothing. It's as if the lens cap is

My camera will not charge. I put it on the charger and it works but after I leave it on for a few hours to charge, it doesn't even turn on. The blue light doesn't even blink like it used to. Would I need a new battery?
