Lumix FS-15 "System error (focus)"
I have the same issue with my 3 month old Lumix DMC FS15 plus it won't focus and gives the error message to "turn camera off and then on" This doesn't fix it.
Bottom line fix: Don't buy this camera again and don't recommend other buy it.

I want to purchase Tele converter ,atleast 2x. i am in to Birding
Googling the item gives this info : 'all the zoom range you could ever need (27-486mm, 35mm equivalent). However, if that's still not enough there is also an optional 1.7x tele converter available'.
However, if you are 'really into birding', a DSLR with interchangeable lenses would serve you far better, as the optics are of a far higher quality, with a greater resolving power.

System error (o.i.s)
This error is for the optical image stabilisation.
Generally the camera should be ok after your turn it on and off again.
The error you are getting is because either the OIS has malfunctioned
or is stuck.
I suggest that you take out its memory stick, the
battery etc and keep the camera like that for about 15 minutes. Then
only reinsert the battery (fully Charged) and try to power on.
Try a little tap ( but not too hard) on the side of the camera....this
might realign if the OIS has got misaligned. If you are lucky, you would get if fixed.
If the problem still persists, you need to contact Panasonic.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Do you really need a driver?
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo management program.
