Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
No lens cover is on, you can review some past photos, but can not do anything else. Prior to this when picture was taken usually two images always appeared? Thanks.

The symptom of "remove lens cover" always showing can be caused by two different things. If the lens assembly has become jammed and will not move when the camera tries to extend it - this can cause the message. On some cameras a stuck-closed shutter can cause this message as well. The symptom you describe of seeing two images prior to the failure is strange. I cannot make any kind of conclusion from that information without further elaboration. Does the lens extend when you turn the power on? If not the lens is jammed. Do you see nothing but black all the time on the screen and the captured photos? If so the shutter is stuck closed. Either of these problems will require complete disassembly and re-setting of the lens elements. Check with your manufacturer and see if they will fix it under warranty. If not, there are service providers available on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
