Question about Panasonic Cameras
Try a new set of batteries for your camera and try to switch it on.
If that doesn't help then try these,
A stuck automatic lens cover may be your problem, but it is normally easy to fix.
1) Try blowing lots of compressed air around the lens cover to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds (don't want to heat up the camera). Use no heat mode if possible.
2) Slide a thin strip of paper between the lens cover shutters and the outer support ring. Work it around 360 degres to clear out any debris that may be in there.
3) With the lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off.But this step may not be a option since your camera is in a dead state.
Repeat the above steps several times. If repeated tries don't work (keeping in mind that it usually does),
it then may be necessary to open the lens barrel to access the lens cover mechanism.
But if you still got the warranty , you better leave this repair work to the panasonic service center.
