Hi Sarah I am Vortash it shouldnt need to be a new camera a good clean out by an engineer should cure the problem provided you havent tried to force the lens back in if it was out , he will clean it with white spirit or alchahol and re set the lens mechanism and it shuold be fine .. but get an estimate first as the economics may be in favour of a new camera if it would cost too much .. in the uk here we charge approx $25 for that but it may be more over the pond .. regards Vortash

Hi. I have a problem with my Panasonic DMC LZ1. Has developed a fault. When powered on with charged batteries and memory card inserted, the camera doesnt do anything on any setting except the review (arrow indicator) setting.
