SOURCE: ERROR REMOVE CAP LENS

THE LENS UNIT IS PROBALLY JAMMED. IT HAS TO BE REMOVED AND STRIPPED. SOMETIMES DIRT IN LENS OR ZOOM MOTOR WILL CAUSE IT TO JAM. IN MORE SERIOUS CASES, ONE OR MORE OF THE LENS FRAMES MIGHT BE DAMAGED. THIS IS USUALLY CAUSED BY THE LENS BEING FORCED IN WHEN EXTENDED. IF THERE IS ANY DAMAGE PARTS THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED.

I had the same problem with a Lumix TZ1.
And this are the instructions to solve it on that camera. But assuming Panasonic build thier camaras similar - yo umigth be able to use it anyways.

When the lens is fully retracted (like if you had a choice!), a silver colored sensor can seen inside the rim. The problem is dirt or moist or something on that sensor.

The camara turned off.
With the edge of some standard printing paper i moved it back and forth, over the sensor a few times.

Turn on the camera. And Zoom.

The first time I could only zoom a little more - but MORE :-) The error message reappeared and the lens auto-retracted. I repreated this several times every time zooming more and more. Sometimes I got the error when retrating the lens, sometimes it got stuck.. But eventually It worked perfectly again.

SOURCE: "Remove lens cap"

Lens damaged or grit/sand in it. If the lens is out at all then whoever was using it will know what happened, as it was going at the time.

If you think it's sand/grit, try tapping it on the bottom, while holding it lens downwards 1 foot above a piece of white paper, see what falls out.

I fixed these units for 4 years and we used to collect sand and tape it to the camera because customers would deny taking them to the beach. LOL.

SOURCE: My DMC-LX3 got an error message on "remove lens

Lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.
