Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera
The cover not opening is a common problem with the TZ3, but this should not cause the waring message. Has the camera been bumped hard or dropped?
Try rapping the camera smartly against the heel of your other hand, or on a harder surface cushioned by a double layer of bath towel. You can also coax the lens cover open with a toothpick.
The error your seeing is common for lens problems, either unable to extend or retraced. Sometime you can overcome these problem by giving the lens or cover some manual help. Otherwise, repairmen on ebay buy them for repair, and working used ones are available on ebay at a good price, likely much better than what a local camera shop would charge you, and much better than what Panasonic would charge you.
If you take the ebay option, you can weigh the option of upgrading tp the TZ5, but the TZ5 is not worth upgrading to if bought new. Don't be fooled with a large pixel figure. TZ3 is a very nice camera to have. I love the wide angle and long zoom..
