Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera ?
Shutter won't close.
\015 Used my camera one day and it was fine. The next day I tried to use it and I couldn't the zoom and it wouldn't focus and retracted. A message to turn off camera and then on again appeared, but the plastic lens cover will not shut. I manually coaxed it closed but it reopened as soon as I let go. It has never been dropped or hit. It is always stored and carried in a padded camera case.\015
