Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera
My FZ20 does not switch off even if the on/off button is off. I cannot click pictures either. The LCD is on, and I can see the images through the lens. But I am not able to click. Nothing happens. The other control buttons dont work at all. There is no effect. Finally, I have to take the battery off to switch the unit off. Antoher thing I noticed in this condition is that, the "delete" button triggers the camera to be shut off. but the camera turns itself on immediately after turning off. I was in the middle of using my FZ20, and I changed the SD card. I dont remember if I actually turned off the camera before I inserted the new card or not. But soon after that, the above weird behaviour started to happen. Any suggestions/advice? Thanks.
After successfully transfering my pictures to my computer my camera locked in the open position. I can't turn it off and nothing else works. I've done this procedure many many times without any problems.

Same thing happened to mine 6 months ago. I paid $130.00 for repairs while still under warranty. Waranty is for parts only. Then I left the camera on the roof of my jeep overnight in the rain. Same thing went wrong. It was past the 60 day repair warranty so I took it apart myself and put it back together. It works fine now. I suspect it was an intermittent contact in the ribbon connector to the rear control unit.
