Lumix TZ1 makes noise clicking and running. finally stopped

\015 Lumix TZ1 makes noise clicking and running. sporadic on and off. just started. Perfect shape Green light on must take battery out to turn off. \015\012Batteries fully charged.\015

Answers :

Does this clicking noise appear to be coming from the lens during extending/retracing? If yes then there seems to be grit in the lens gear that is causing the lens to malfunction. Your camera will be turned off to prevent damage to the lens. I strongly suggest that you get the gears cleaned by a professional. Even though I am a strong Do It Yourself repair advocate this one is tough and any slight kinking of the contacts would mean a repair bill= the cost of the camera.
Take the card out ...and all your thopugts...and just buy another ones...'llbe ok
