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?

Lumix DMC FZ35 Lens Opens and Retracts Continually When Turning the Camera on.


it sounds like it has slipped a gear in the lens.. you could try to manually push the lens in when it comes out and that might reset it but it also might break it.. best is to send it back to panasonic.. is a easy fix

Lens will only partially come out - a few mm - when powered up. It then retracts.


The lens is retracting because there is something preventing it from fully extending. It is a safety mechanism built into all digital compact cameras to be sure the lens doesn't force itself and break. Once it encounters resistance, it will retract.
Make sure there is no debris between the lens rings and try again. If the problem doesn't go away, you will likely need to take your camera in to be repaired.

Lumix FS-15 "System error (focus)"


I have the same issue with my 3 month old Lumix DMC FS15 plus it won't focus and gives the error message to "turn camera off and then on" This doesn't fix it.

Bottom line fix: Don't buy this camera again and don't recommend other buy it.

Same problem


there might not be a physical damage outside which will be easily noticeable but it if you have dropped it once hard the lens array which is a sensitive part gets defective. try tapping on the device while the camera is switched on. if it works then you are lucky. but if still the problem persists you have to take it to the service centre. it costs about 60$.

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:
