Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT20 Digital Camera - International Warranty
Bought this camera for travelling around Asia with in September. I'm prone to breaking other cameras so it needed to be sturdy, waterproof, drop proof etc. However somehow it got water damage, the lock is ALWAYS on as I'm paranoid that it isn't really waterproof. Started to trust it after two months of life with me, it had been in the sea, pools, up mountains, motorbikes etc, it seemed man enough to survive life with me, I don't understand how when I always follow the guidelines that it got water inside, it had been in water plenty of times already. The only thing that showed this is that the small strip had turned pink, no obvious water. It wont turn on at all and it's not just the battery as I've tried new ones. Can it be repaired at all or do I just give up and assume there's no standard camera in the world that is robust enough?

I would suggest that the image stabilizer might not be working right. Could you upload a photo to Flickr or other location where I could look at the EXIF, or list it here. I would like to see what the camera is writing to the image as the settings when the photo was taken.
Does it make a difference when the image stabilizer is on or off?

sorry to tell you guys this but you definetly have lens faults, for you firwol i can say that you have a focus lens or image stabilizer fault, bob80 sand can definetly mess your lens around and is going to need a service. you can check the error codes. you need to do exactly what i say. turn camera off, mode switch to red camera selection, this has to be done quick, turn camera on holding the ois+ arrow up button, then quickly hold ois+menu+arrow left. post the error then i will tell you what is wrong.

let me explain to you guys, these cameras are slim line cameras and if dropped or mishandled it is going to give problems. you cant blame the camera if you are not handling it corectly.

This fault is usually caused by a lens problem.
Over 95 percent of lens problems are from Knock damaged or sand/grit in mechanism. It will need to be serviced by an experienced technician.

I was thinking along the lines of some kind of fungus if you were in a warm, humid climate.
