Question about Cameras
Can you advise where to find a bulb setting on my new lumix FZ 200 camera, to permit exposures of more than 60 seconds

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Do you have a USB card reader? Just take the card from the camera, pop into the reader, and you can transfer your photos.
No drivers required unless using Windows 98 or earlier.
Also, the model is wrong, do you mean TZ5? You should be able download software for the camera from www.panasonic.com

Does the camera start up as normal? Is the message intermittent? When does the message appear? (i.e. when zooming, when taking a picture, etc)
Unfortunately this message doesn't have one clear meaning. Or rather, it does - it says "something is wrong with the camera". From what I noticed with Lumix cameras, lens is usually the reason for this. (e.g. if there is a bit of dirt stuck in lens gears you would end up with the same message). If it's dirt in the lens, the solution isn't easy, you either need to have it repaired at panasonic service, get a replacement lens from an otherwise defective donor camera from e.g. ebay and replace it, or alternatively dismantle and clean the lens yourself if you're brave.
On one occassion I saw this message appear due to a problem with flash circuit. Disabling the flash sorted it out.
I would recommend first trying to disable any fancy options in the menu (e.g. flash, image stabiliser, macro, etc) and resetting the settings to factory state via the menu.

It might be an idea to check whether your "white balance" is not set to "fluorescent light" or "custom white balance". "Auto" is the safest option here. Incorrect white balance would cause blue/yellow cast on the picture. Otherwise the problem might be more severe (i.e. sensor failure-not common in TZ3 though).
If you're still getting blue cast with white balance set to auto, you can try to set "custom white balance" with white sheet of paper (refer to the manual for details) - this will override auto white balance.
