Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 Digital Camera ?
When I zoom useing my panasonic lumix DMC-FX01 it turns off
\015 When I use the telaphoto on the panasonic lumix DMC-FX01 it turns off and prompts me to turn it back on.\015
Have you had problems when you turn it on and off from scratch before? It sounds like you have a problem with the lense extension. Now if you are lucky, it's just a bit of dirt in there and the best cure (I know, it sounds horrible) is to put the end of a shop-vac over the lense when it's closed and it will probably **** the obstruction out. If you are less lucky, the problem is with the gearing inside and in the middle of the luck-vs-effort range it could just have been bashed, in which case, you can try and push it back into alignment but be careful with it (he says, after he hit his last one with a large lump of wood to put it back).
Good luck :)

My old camera Lumix DMC-FX01 wouldnt turn on and it's lens stuck out wouldnt zoom back in (since the camera couldnt turn on). Is there anything I can do to fix it?

My Panasonic DMC-TZ5 will no longer focus, especially after using zoom. It displays messages re shutting camera off and on, takes 30 seconds to turn off and sounds like a ticking clock! It is only 3 months old. This is easily the worst digital camera I have ever bought and the Internet shows many people have the same problem with this camera. it should be withdrawn!!
If you mention "ticking clock" sounds, then most probably something like a grain of sand fell into the cogs in the zoom mechanism (been taking pictures on a beach? ;). Dirt gets into the mechanism through the gaps between the zoom barrels and the cam ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

When I try to zoom in on my camera (a Sanyo VPC-E1090), it says "Lens Error: 0x2119" It used to say something similar to this when I turned it on, but I turned it off and on many times until it corrected it. But I don't know how to correct this problem or if it can be corrected. For background information, the camera is only a couple weeks old, and it has been mainly used at a camp and ranch where it is quite dusty. Thanks for the help.
