Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera ?

Panasonic Lumix camera, DMC FS5

\015 Camera zoom lens keeps retracting, message reads "Please turn off and on again", this does not help and camera cannot be used.\015

Answers :

I had same problem. I just got the camera working again. Not sure how it exactly happened but while I had it on and it was zooming in and out, I changed the mode and tried to take a pic. It would ask me to turn off and on again which I would do quickly and change the mode to something else like "portrait" or "landscape", etc. and try to take a pic. After a few times it stopped and focused on something. So not very scientific but doing that must have kicked it in the head or something.
HAHA, I just solved the problem on my camera.

The problem is that the focus has gone "to far" and lost connection to the cogwheel, This is noticed by listening to the camera when it starts up. I gently tapped the camera lens-down against my thigh when the lens came out in it's outermost position.
This made the cogwheel reconnect to the motor and focus was obtained again. Now the camera works fine again.

I would recommend that you take a cleaning cloth between the lens and your leg when doing this to minimize the chance of scratching the lens.

Good Luck

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.

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.
