Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera ?

"Remove lens cap"

\015 My Lumix says "remove lens cap" even though the lens cap is removed. It makes a small noise when it is started up that it wasn't making before.\015

Answers :

Lens damaged or grit/sand in it. If the lens is out at all then whoever\015\012was using it will know what happened, as it was going at the time.
\015\012
\015\012If you think it's sand/grit, try tapping it on the bottom, while\015\012holding it lens downwards 1 foot above a piece of white paper, see what\015\012falls out.
\015\012
\015\012I fixed these units for 4 years and we used to collect sand and tape it\015\012to the camera because customers would deny taking them to the beach.\015\012LOL.
