Lumix TZ3 zebra stripes in daylight pictures

\015 Hi,my newly purchased TZ3 appears to not be able to cope with daylight. All pictures taken without flash (indoors and outdoors) show these grey to white horizontal lines through the images. The fault transfers to the PC screen.Is there a way to reset the camera to factory default setting although I have not found any info on this in the manual?I have tried 2 different memory cards (the camera does take a few shots without a memory card) but error remains.What could be the cause?Thank you for your assistance.\015

Lumix tz3 Please turn camera off and then on again" as soon as camera is switched on. I Can view any menu, or read SD card, but cannot take any pictures. If I turn on in a picture taking mode it starts to focus and then the message appears, when I turn it off the lens does not close. If I turn on in playback mode, it works fine, if I turn it off from playback mode, then the lens closes. Basically, any picture taking mode triggers the error message. Solution?

Aloha, My Lumix DMC-TZ3 is having issues. When I turn it on it is extremely dark. It's almost as if the camera is only registering one side of the color spectrum. Even the pictures that are taken come out dark, so I'm guessing it's a lens problem. Not sure how it happened, because the camera was not dropped or treated badly anytime recently. The day before it started going wonky, the pictures and camera were fine. Could this be a lens issue or something internal. Is there a reset button to resto
