Question about Cameras
Yes, the lens can be disassembled and cleaned. But before you think about doing so, think about this. Do you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment on reassembly? If you don't, please leave inside cleaning to a trained professional.

SOURCE: Remove lens
GOT IT!!! I had the same problem. Took all of the screws out
of the thing and disconnected the PCB. That allowed me to take the Lenses unit
out. Once I did that, dismantle the Phillips screws from the rear of the lens
and pull the lens apart. I found a Little White speck of dust on the Sensor.
Took that off, put it all back together and it’s like New!! Chuffed. Hope you
have as much Luck as I Did. :D

It seems to be a connection issue between the Lens and the Camera body. Perhaps the mount is not true to the body Ask Pentax about this their Technical Support Team

DON'T EVEN TRY TO TAKE THE LENS OFF!!!
To take the lens off, the camera has to be dismantled, and unless you are an experienced technician, there is a 95% chance that the camera will have more problems than what it started with.
Have you taken any pictures with the water spot inside the lens? If it is visible in pictures, then you have several options:
1. Ignore it.
2. Leave it there and use an image editor to clone out the spot in the picture. (Recommended).
3. Take the camera to a repair shop, or mail it to Panasonic's service center. This is the expensive option, to remove the water spot, the price most likely will be well over $100.
4. Buy another camera. The FZ7 is rated to about 50,000 shots, so if you are approaching this number they it may well be worth it to just get another camera.
Unless the spot is seriously affecting your pictures, then leave it there. By having the camera opened there is a high chance that other problems will be introduced, such as: fingerprints,dust or hairs inside the lens or misaligned lens elements.
My FZ7's lens is full of dust, yet this is not usually visible in pictures, when it is, I can usually remove it on the computer.
I would recommend taking the camera to a service center as a last resort.
