Hi,
Does the camera start up as normal? Is the message intermittent? When does the message appear? (i.e. when zooming, when taking a picture, etc)
Unfortunately this message doesn't have one clear meaning. Or rather, it does - it says "something is wrong with the camera". From what I noticed with Lumix cameras, lens is usually the reason for this. (e.g. if there is a bit of dirt stuck in lens gears you would end up with the same message). If it's dirt in the lens, the solution isn't easy, you either need to have it repaired at panasonic service, get a replacement lens from an otherwise defective donor camera from e.g. ebay and replace it, or alternatively dismantle and clean the lens yourself if you're brave.
On one occassion I saw this message appear due to a problem with flash circuit. Disabling the flash sorted it out.
I would recommend first trying to disable any fancy options in the menu (e.g. flash, image stabiliser, macro, etc) and resetting the settings to factory state via the menu.
Good luck,
Raf

Hi,

This sounds like the zoom mechanism has broken. These are not made of plastic but rather steel or aluminium.

You could send the camera to an international repair centre like the UK for example. Click on the link below for details on sending the camera away internationally for repairing.

Why has my DMC-FZ50 given me a message please turn camera off and then on again I also can only take pictures on the LCD and not on the viewfinder, but take pictures without viewing them which I can...


Hi Joan,

this behavior is not normal. I suggest you take it to service. I doubt there is everything ok with it. I own a service manual for my FZ 50, there is nothing like that described. Have it fixed before it dies completely.

Please Turn Your Camera Off and Then On Again?


THIS MESSAGE APPEARS WHEN A FAULT HAS GONE WRONG WITH THE LENS. EITHER CAMERA HAS TAKEN A DROP OR KNOCK. THIS CAN BE REPAIRED BUT NEEDS TO GO TO A PANASONIC SERVICE CENTRE.

Low light situation


Where the Panasonic FZ-20 does very well, is with conditions where you need a long zoom under low light. Most lenses will lose light as they are zoomed out. The Leica lens in the FZ-20 does not lose light when zoomed. No matter which camera you are using, you will have to use the manual controls for the best results. So learning about exposure and how to use it, is necessary.
