    When I turn my camera on the lens won't come out and the shutter won't open. I sounds like it wants too. Message comes up turn camera off and turn on. I do this and it repeats itself. The camera in not even a month old. Received it aas a Xmas gift.

    This is the second Panasonic camera that I've owned in three years and this happened. My current camera is just over a year old (Christmas 2007). I don't want to have to buy a new camera every time I renew my car license tags. It is what I feel like I am doing and it is insane. I'm changing brands. I have searched the internet and everyone says the same thing about their Panasonic. It costs more to fix than a new one. It's a shame because I thought Panasonic was dependable. My friend says his 3 year old Nikon (spellcheck?) lasted through hell and works great. I think I'm having to change my loyalty.

There is no long term fix for this problem, you can however reset the camera, remove the batteries and leave out for 48-72 hours then replace batteries, this should work for a few days, but in order to fix it you'll need to send it off, but like you stated, you can buy a new camera for the same price.

I turn my dmc-fh27 camera and the lens won't come out. it is trying to move but it will not budge and the screen says "System Error (Zoom)".


Warning: This is only a last resort if you no longer have a warranty.

I used a variety of different methods, but here's what worked for my camera. Apparently the lens was just off the track.

1. Turn on the camera, and smack the back against the palm of your hand to get the lens to come out.
2.Hold the lens out until the "error screen" comes up.
3. Take the camera with the lens facing towards you, and use your thumbs to push on the lens.
4. Push firmly until the lens "clicks".
5. Turn off camera, then on again.
6. Hopefully cry tears of joy that you fixed it.

Fujifilm finepix J32 Zoom error


Had exactly the same problem with my fujifilm j32, after reading a few things on the net and definitely couldn't be bothered to waste money and time sending off a camera that cost a few quid I took matters into my own hands!
I turned the camera on and quickly grabbed the lens to stop it retracting again, once it was held out I gave it a good 'wiggle' moving it in all directions fairly firmly!
I then pressed the on/off button again to switch it off and then turned it back on and low and behold it turned on and worked perfectly after!
Hope this helps others cause it could save you a lot of time and money!

The lens comes out then the camera turns off


Your camera has it own doctor built in, if it sees an internal error it will shut down. When a camera turns on it goes through a series of tests, if one of these test fails your camera records an error. If the lens is moving in and out your camera is trying to get the lens to function. As such you have a faulty camera.

Hey everardo,
What is most likely going on is that something (i.e. sand) is obstructing the movement of the lens. You can try gently blowing compressed air into the sides of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is stopping the lens movement. You can also try putting the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up and hold the shutter button down, and then turn the camera on. If neither of these options works I would have it cleaned by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

The better solution is to send it to Canon's service people.  They can fix he problem is the fixes at the above site won't work.

Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ2


My camera is a Lumix DMC - LS70 and the same thing was happening to me, the camera kept telling me to turn it off which never solved the problem and the lens never closed when the camera turned off. What i did was, i zoomed out as i turned the camera on (while it was in a picture taking mode) and it corrected itself. Try it and see what happens.
