Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15 Digital Camera ?

System Error (Focus)

\015 Turning on the Lumix DMC-FS15 works, pauses, then results in a white error screen with the following error message: "System Error (Focus)" and the lens won't retract when powering off. Turning camera back on, the lens retracts, then extends to the proper position and within seconds the above error message repeats. Have swapped batteries (Panasonic, full charge on both) and swapped the memory cards, and neither works. Camera has worked superbly until this happened. Is there a manual reset button on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15 that I may have missed? Is there any solution to make this camera work again properly?\015

Answers :

Hi,

More than likely the system error is a lens issue. Does the lens seem to stop before coming all the way out? Was it bumped in the out position? It is possible that grit or something has got in the gears of the barrel or the drive motor is malfunctioning. There is not much you can do to fix this yourself other than try to assist the lens on its way out but do not force it or more damage may occur. You may have to have it serviced or replace it.

We have a Panasonic DMC ZS3 camera that has been working fine until now. We are on the North West coast of Costa Rica. When you turn the camera on, the lens, which was out when shut off, goes in, then comes back out. The camera screen tries to focus, then goes to a blank screen and says "SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). When you shut it off, the lens does not retract.

My Panasonic DMC-FH1 stopped working after less than a month of use. It has been treated with care, not dropped or thrown about. It powers up, the lens automatically extends, but it cannot focus. After about 10 seconds the display reads: SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). I have tried recharging the battery, and leaving the camera powered down for an extended period. The owner's manual does not reference this problem. Any thoughts? Thanks you, Brian
