Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera ?

Panasonic lumix lens go crazy...


\015 Hello!\015\012\015\012I'm having the same problem as bonadrag14 does...\015\012Anyone figured this out?\015

Answers :

I found 3 grains of sand between the grooves where the lens moves round between the pcb and front casing. I had recently been on a beach holiday! It was tricky to get them out as the electricity/ static was attracting them. I used a wet needle and they clung to it. It was a painstaking process but rather this than spend hundreds on getting panasonic to do the same or buy a new camera.
I had same problem... my kid dropped the camera today...\015\012\015\012First make sure the lens isn't cocked and make sure the smaller piece of the lens is orientated in the correct direction (make sure it isnt turned at an angle)\015\012\015\012Next, when you turn it on, you will see the segment of the lens closest to the base of the camera turn. To get my camera going, i had to help it as it turned. As it was spinning clockwise i grabbed the segment that was spinning and turned it past the point it was getting stuck. not too much force. \015\012\015\012Once I did this it worked fine again. When I shut it off it retracted completely. When I turned it on it worked as normal.

Hello I just purchased a .42 wide angle fisheye lens for my panasonic lumix dmc-fz8 and when i bought it on ebay it said its for either a fz7/8. When i tried to attach it today the lens adapter does not fit the thread. I was wondering if maybe the lens on the camera should be taken off? I'm not sure. And it is possible to just use the fisheye lens without the adapter? Because it fits when just put the fisheye lens but when i turn it on it says "please remove lens cap then press play" so I'm very
