Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC5 Digital Camera
There is a button on the top right edge of this camera, next to the shutter button. It allows you to switch from taking pictures, to reviewing the pictures you have already taken. Another ring underneath that ring allows you to choose the number of photos you want to take at once; 1, 2, or 4, or a movie.
When using it outdoors on a dry day suddenly this ring stuck, and is almost impossible to turn from record to review and back. How do I loosen this ring on the button? - Michael

Remove the SD card and slide the lock switch on it to the unlocked position. If it's already there then slide it fully to locked and then fully back again.
If this fails then you need to try another SD card to see whether it's a camera fault. If the camera is at fault then there's nothing more you can do other than to return the camera to Panasonic for repair.

I had the same problem, i switched the camera on in capture mode and zoomed in and applied a little pressure to the lens which made a slight click but retracted and has worked fine since. I may of just been lucky but the camera is fully functional again, could be worth a try.

I just fixed my daughters camera with this problem. First go to the capture mode and see if the reason you are in review mode is because the camera thinks it is docked. If so, look at the dock port on the bottom of the camera. ( May need to magnify it to see in there ) Look for any green corrosion between the contacts. Her's has this corossion between two pairs of the contacts. I took a jewelers screw driver and scraped out the corrosion and then blew canned air in there to remove it. Turned it on and now it works fine. I have a feeling that the battery compartment is venting through this port and the small amount of acid vapor produced as the batteries discharge is causing the contacts to get this corrosion.

try removing the battery and leave out for a few minutes to erase the camera memory so to speak, then replace battery and see how you go, good luck
