Having problems with your Panasonic Digital Cameras ?

The camera says please turn camera off and then on again every time i turn it on


Answers :

While you are turning the camera on, hold the lewer which you use for zooming in. the lens should extend before you get the annoying message about turning the the cameroa off and on. then, GENTLY apply pressure to the lens as if you wanted to push it back to the camera. while you are doing this, turn the camera off (lens should come back into the body of the camera). this solved the problem for me! :D
Hi, we have been having the same message when trying to zoom. I tried new batteries, but that didn't help. I tried leaving the camera on without zooming so I didn't get the message, after awhile the camera automatically shuts down. I then turned it on again and so far the camera is working fine.
\015\012I hope this works for you.
