Question about Cameras
There is nothing you can do except replace the camera or have it repaired. Some camera makers also offer exchange problems.

SOURCE: lens will not retract
In my case, there was dust in the switches that sense the cover movement.

SOURCE: camera focus error
there is a small logic circuit that controls the motor that retracts the lens and a sensor that tells it the lens is retracted, it is a lens position sensor, one of these two components is most likely defective, the thing is there are no consumer service info provided by panasonic, they will not sell you parts either, the camera is a mystery to take apart and repair without the tech manual which u can't get, so u see the delima here, u must either have this camera fixed by a panasonic repair station or see if it qualifies for a upgrade exchange program for a newer model.

Try removing the battery from the camera to see if this will force a reset. This may well resolve the problem.
If your problem persists after this please do add a comment and I try to assist further.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: lens error and will not retract
This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
