Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC70 Digital Camera

2 Answers

No longer staying on

I recently dropped my lumix and when i turned it on again, it would start up like usual but once the lens was out for a second it would retract again and and tell me to turn the camera off and on again on a blue screen. I know the lens isn't broken because for the brief second it's on it does show what your looking at on the screen. Also it will stay on if I turn the camera on in the play mode. So I can look at the pictures I have already taken, but then once i switch it to take a picture it is on for a second and then tells me to turn it on and off again. It sounds confusing i know, but has anyone had this problem or know a way to fix it?

Camera lens wont open


Saw a similar problem recently, same cause, and result was the lens was jammed.

Did manage to wiggle it free after many attempts...it only stays on for a few seconds before faulting and going off...but it's a bit hard to get a hold on the edge of the lens to pop-out the low side.

Started by laying it on it's back and checking the level of the lens edges for the low spot, then used a thick sewing needle to lift up while turning the unit on (again and again) until the gear-ring popped back in during the lens-check at start-up.

Camera was dropped. Now it will turn on, but after a few seconds, lens begins to move in and out for about 3-5 seconds, then a messag is displayed: Pleaase turn camera off then on again". Doing this r


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
